15 October 2016 .....Black students at UCT want the University of Cape Town to scrap science as science is a COLONIAL concept. Bwahahahaaaaaaa
At a panel discussion this week‚ published to YouTube‚ the woman responded to a question about the decolonisation of science.
“Science as a whole is a product of western modernity and the whole thing should be scratched off. Especially in Africa‚” she says. Too clever....
Arthur Goldreich famously provided refuge to Nelson Mandela at Liliesleaf Farm in Rivonia.
Goldreich was also a political activist who became a member of Umkhonto weSizwe (MK) the armed wing of the ANC.
Goldreich and his family provided refuge at their home on Liliesleaf Farm in Rivonia, to Nelson Mandela and other freedom fighters in 1961.
Goldreich was one of those arrested at the farm on 11 July 1963 in the now infamous Rivonia Raid.
Along with Harold Wolpe, Mosie Moola and Abdulhay Jassat, Goldreich escaped from custody at Marshall Square Police Station in Johannesburg on 11 August 1963.
He moved to Israel in 1964 after his dramatic escape.
After South Africa achieved democracy in 1994 Goldreich attended a reunion at Liliesleaf. It has since been transformed into a museum.
The Sharpeville massacre radicalised Kasrils against the Apartheid system and he joined the African National Congress(ANC) in 1960, becoming secretary of the Congress of Democrats in Natal in 1961, the same year he joined the South African Communist Party. In 1962, he received a five-year banning order prohibiting him from public speaking. He was a founding member of Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) as member of Natal Regional Command during the same year. He became the commander of Natal Regional Command in 1963. He underwent military training in 1964 in Odessa, USSR and at the end of 1965 was sent to London to work for the movement there. During this time Kasrils worked with Yusuf Dadoo,Joe Slovo and Jack Hodgson and they formed a special committee (1966–76) to develop underground activities in South Africa from the United Kingdom. During this time he trained various people including Raymond Suttner, Jeremy Cronin,Ahmed Timol, Alex Moumbaris, Tim Jenkins and Dave and Sue Rabkin, with the aim of establishing underground propaganda units in South Africa. He served the ANC and was based in London, Luanda, Maputo, Swaziland, Botswana and Lusaka. Kasrils eventually became a member of MK's High Command and was appointed as Chief of MK Intelligence in 1983.
Kasrils also served on the ANC's Politico-Military Council from 1985 to 1989 and worked underground for the ANC in South Africa during Operation Vula from 1990 to 1991. He went on to head the ANC's campaign section from 1991 to 1994.
Born on 26 February 1927 in Johannesburg was one of Johannesburg’s best-known and successful lawyers who got lucrative cases and big name clients. Kantor did not much care about politics. When Nelson Mandela became a lawyer, Kantor was one of the first people to offer his congratulations.
In his memoir, A Healthy Grave – An Apartheid Prison Memoir, published in 1969, Kantor says that he was unaware that Wolpe was involved with uMkhonto we Sizwe (MK), the African National Congress’s (ANC) military wing. Nor, he writes, did he realise that Wolpe had used the firm to set up the dummy company and launder the funds that paid for the purchase of Lilliesleaf Farm, where the MK High Command was based. At the same time, however, Kantor was a secret financial contributor to the resistance movement, someone whom Ivan Schermbrucker, a South African Communist Party (SACP) member—a neighbour and friend of Hilda and Lionel ‘Rusty” Bernstei
Albie Sachs - ANC stalwart
He opposed the goals of the SADF, but refused to leave South Africa. He spent much of his six months as a doctor in Namibia, which was then known as South West Africa and was controlled by South Africa.
Once he returned to Cape Town, Toms set up a medical clinic in the squatter settlement of Crossroads, which is located about 15 km outside of the city in the Cape Flats area. He was the only doctor who served the Crossroads' population of approximately 60,000 people. In September 1983, Toms witnessed a three-week-long confrontation between the Crossroads community and the South African police and security forces, who were trying to tear down "illegal" buildings in the settlement. After witnessing the violence and brutality of the raid,
Educate Africa - Invest In Africans - Invest in a self sustaining Africa - Invest in Educating Africans - Invest in creating African Alumni to Educate Africans - Invest in Education In Africa To Educate Africans To Educate Their Own - Invest in Educating Africans To Build Businesses That Employ Their Own unskilled labour force, semi-skilled labour force and skilled labour force. Invest in Educating Africans the way India, Korea, Malaysia, China and many other third world areas have done for their people. Help Africans to stop making excuses for poor African Economic performance.
No priests are standing up against the lies and racist corruption of SA today. Why? Hypocrites.
At first, he was accused of furthering the unlawful activities of the African National Congress (ANC) and the South African Communist Party, and of possessing their pamphlets. Alison Norman was named as a co-conspirator. During his detention, demonstrations and vigils were held throughout South Africa, and the cathedral bells and the bells of many suburban churches were chimed each day in protest.
Picture - left - is open for the first ANC or EFF or DA university built for rural poor to invest in the people who need education - those masses in poverty. How Many Black Graduates Are Role Models For Education ?
How Many Black Graduates Are Calling For More Universities For Rural People ? None.
How Many Black Graduates Are Philanthropists For Education Empowerment from Poverty To Professional ? NONE on the news media - Not One.
Why should Colonials - hated colonials - continue to educate the ungrateful few Africans who trash colonial philanthropists?
WHY? The struggle was to be equal - equality begins with equal education for the poor as well as the middle class. I am alright like Zuma is the new SA phrase - screw the poor.
Following the end of apartheid, Du Toit became a Member of Parliament for the African National Congress in 1994. He helped to draft the Constitution of South Africa in 1996.
Timothy Peter Jenkin (born 1948) is a South African writer, former political prisoner and prison escapee, and a monetary activist.
Jenkin, a Cape Town resident and University of Cape Town alumnus, was charged with "producing and distributing 18 different pamphlets on behalf of banned organisations" including the South African Communist Party, African National Congress and the ANC's armed wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe. He did so from 1975–78 and posted a sign on the seventh floor of a Cape Town building which said "The ANC lives". He was arrested, pled guilty to all charges and received a 12-year sentence. However, a year later in 1979, Jenkin and fellow inmates Alex Moumbaris and Stephen Lee broke out of Pretoria Central Prison. He subsequently moved to London and worked as a Research Officer for the International Defence and Aid Fund for Southern Africa. He also wrote Inside Out: Escape from Pretoria Prison.
Progressive Federal Party which had been formed that year through a merger of the Progressive Party and various other liberal groups of MPs. He became the PFP's leader in August 1988 and, with Denis Worrall and Wynand Malan was a co-leader of the new Democratic Party when it formed in 1989.
Following the DP's defeat in the first post-apartheid election of 1994, De Beer resigned as party leader.
In 2016 black leaders are still talking about white privilege but not one of them - black leaders - has built a university or college for their voters.
Not one can build the mental bridge between Education and Economic Empowerment.
Apparently wealth has everything to do with colour according to Malema and the ANC. With the exception of the ANC and EFF elite of course.
Instead of BEE we need EEE.
Any contribution from educated people is deemed gratuitous by these 'leaders' who feather their bank accounts, build mansions and drive many fancy cars while holding back their own people through ignorance and lies.
It is a common model in tribal Africa.
While they scapegoat racism for their incompetence - they punish their own people.
Idiots is a compliment to some. Idiots or cleverly implementing the perverse model taught them by their Chinese and Russian trainers.
In December 1961, the Soviets decided to re-establish the International Lenin School as a permanent facility to train people from other countries. More than 60 parties were invited to send students to the new school in 1962, and the SACP sent Ruth Mompati, Flag Boshielo and Alfred Kgokong.
The SACP’s Arthur Goldreich ( Arthur Goldreich famously provided refuge to Nelson Mandela at Liliesleaf Farm in Rivonia) and Vella Pillay went to Moscow in December 1962 and Ponomarey received the duo. They discussed the draft plan of Operation Mayibuye, which called for the training of uMkhonto we Sizwe (MK) cadres on African soil – by 1963 a camp was set up in Tanzania.
White activists were almost all educated, intelligent and connected to social networks that shared disgust for apartheid.
Perhaps this is why ANC do not invest in their own people as the colonialists invest in their people.
Perhaps the ANC do not want an educated rural voter base - educated people think and do instead of complaining and making excuses for continued failure - excuses.
