Journey To Pretoria interview with Jonathan Steele

now the resistance on the side of the people is being sustained by a combination of factors: the mood of confidence in the ultimate outcome, to which i've alluded; the mass organised forces which have emerged on the ground at community level, and regionally and nationally in powerful mass organisations such as the south african congress of trade unions (sactu) and the united democratic front (udf); the increased strength of the anc presence, including the anc political underground; and the escalation in the recent period of armed blows which have had an enormous inspirational impact on the people, particularly the youth. What is the role of the party, given that many other liberation movements have been successful without the need for a separate party? 'there's an army of thousands ready to respond and act in all the main black areas in the towns and villages' the answer in one sentence is because there is a need in south africa to work for the ultimate achievement of a socialist south africa.

Abortion Newsreel Review

(abse) politics of abortion apart from the immediate necessity to defeat restrictive legislations (and aside from the internal politics of nac) feminists see the issue of abortion necessarily in terms of the separation of sex from reproduction and the control of women over their own fertility, particularly as these relate to working-class women. Is this likely to engage the support of people who are not yet committed to the campaign? within the film, opposition to the issue of abortion is focussed onto spuc and its supporters, but there are many other people who are neither spuc-ites nor revolutionary socialists and who remain disturbed by the demand for free abortion.

Apartheid's deepening crisis

what has not changed thus, while it is necessary to recognise the importance of the changed conditions of the struggles of the black workers — the new possibilities for the organisation of black workers and the space for trade union struggles and the further differentiation, in terms of skills, of the black working class — at the same time it is of the utmost importance to place these changes in the context of the expansion of the apparatuses of coercion and the accompanying intensification of repression of black people, the application and further development of the measures of control of urban blacks, and of rural-urban migration of blacks workers, the deprivation of blacks (mainly workers) of south african citizenship, the continued elaboration (albeit with changes) of laws applying specifically to black workers and so on. the basis of the argument that there has been a major restructuring of white classes is that the economic interests of afrikaner capital and its former allies among the afrikaner people are now so divergent that, in the common interests of all fractions of monopoly capital, afrikaner capital's former allies must be abandoned — this is necessary because the 'reforms' that monopoly capital requires (a skilled, stable, black labour force etc) contradicts the interests of the white subordinate classes and can only be secured for the blacks at the expense of the white workers.

Garvey's World Vision

Garvey's world vision this year is the centenary of the birth of marcus garvey, the black leader whose significance in the history of the struggle for freedom, both in the african continent and in the diaspora, would be difficult to over-estimate. as black youth in the caribbean, america, england, brazil, australia and elsewhere find themselves on the fringes of their world, excluded by racism and poverty, a fresh grappling with garvey's ideas and his vision will show that failure is not endemic to the race and that success is within reach.
