ANC should drop foreign ideas and stick to Africanist idealism

2017-08-31 06:01

The material conditions of the lives of Africans have not advanced.

They have witnessed, under the ANC and DA rule, the harmful reality of neo-colonialism causing immense human suffering, poverty and underdevelopment.

The Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC) believes that the time has come for the ANC to be rid of its foreign philosophies and ideologies.

The ANC’s continued practice of neoliberalism, imperialism, neo-colonialism, communism, neocapitalism, all manifested in the Freedom Charter, is taking us nowhere, and shall deliver absolutely nothing to the electorate.

The only plausible answer to the South Africa socio-economic problems confronting the poorest of the poor is a shift toward the founding principles and ideology of 1912, which is based on African Nationalism, Pan Africanism, Black Consciousness, promotion of African Identity, African Scientific Socialism and Socialist Democracy.

The fallacy that sustained the ANC led the country into the 1994 “breakthrough”, a compromise whose consequences to the total liberation of Africans call for the serious review.

For the PAC political freedom without economic power is a shame: it is no freedom at all.

As the PAC freedom fighters, we strongly believe that land is economy and that economy is land. Failing to return the land that was stolen from the indigenous people by the settlers is an insult to our people and our ancestors who fought a stoic struggle for the total emancipation of the African indigenous people.

The PAC calls upon all South African masses to stand by it and continue the fight for the economic liberation of Africans.

It says let us rally behind the following revolutionary programme of action:

.Promoting Pan Africanism, Black Consciousness, African Nationalism, African Scientific Socialism and African Socialist Democracy, Self-determination, self-reliance, self-acceptance and the principle of a United States of Africa.

.Fighting for the fulfilment of the Programme of Action of 1949, which the ANC neglected as they drifted away from its true ideology to adopt communism and liberalism.

.Fighting for the repossession of the land of Africans and investing in the agricultural economy for indigenous Africans to benefit.

.Ensuring access to land and effective management of natural resources by Africans and for Africans.

.Encouraging freedom fighters to identify business opportunities so that the government will give them business starter packs; give bursaries to their children; build special clinics for the freedom fighters and combatants; ensuring they receive food parcels in the meantime; must be given access to houses and access to medical aid so as to better their lives.
