The following statement was previously published on the Black First Land First website and is now reissued by Black Opinion:
BLF will be participating in the pickets against fuel price increases led by PAPI which are scheduled for today, 30 August 2018. It is appalling that the African National Congress (ANC) and the main opposition parties have not engaged in any meaningful action to lower the fuel price. The government’s reluctance to resolve this issue, is indicative of it being captured by white monopoly capital.
BLF calls on all to stand in solidarity against fuel price hikes. Join the PAPI campaign to nationalize SASOL, place an immediate moratorium on fuel hikes, and to reduce the price of fuel to R8 per liter generally and five R5 per liter for taxis and busses in particular. Participate in the pickets today. Make a difference! In KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) demonstrations will be conducted at the SASOL garage in Masalabala Yengwa Drive in Durban and The Ridge in Shallcross at 10 am.
