PAC foundation is at the core of the land question in Azania

2018-05-03 06:01

On 6th April 1959, the Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) of Azania was formed as the vanguard of African liberation and the custodian of genuine aspirations of the indigenous African people.

The PAC defined the nature of our struggle as that of national liberation and national self-determination of the African people.

It has identified the targets of our struggle as settler colonialism, bureaucratic capitalism, semi-feudalism in the farming areas, land repossession, neo-colonialism, imperialism and all their manifestations.

The PAC sees the land question as central to our struggle and inseparable to the social question of how man shall live with his fellow man in a peaceful and conducive manner.

The party’s policy flows from the logic of the African situation and from the fundamental long-term interest of the vast African majority.

The PAC is fighting for the repossession of and restoration of the land that was taken by force through the barrel of the guns of colonial settlers, establishment of an Africanist socialist democracy and envisages a Socialist United States of Africa with all power vested in a central government, freely elected by the whole continent on the basis of universal adult suffrage.
