I am here to disturb the white man’s peace. They are right, the white man has been too comfortable for too long. We are here unashamedly to disturb the white man’s peace. Because we have never known peace. We don’t know what peace looks like. They have been living peacefully. They have been swimming in a pool of privilege. They have been enjoying themselves because they always owned our land. We, the rightful owners, our peace was disturbed by white man’s arrival here. They committed a black genocide. They killed our people during land dispossession. Today, we are told don’t disturb them, even when they disturbed our peace. They found peaceful Africans here. They killed them! They slaughtered them, like animals! We are not calling for the slaughtering of white people, at least for now. – EFF leader Julius Malema in a speech outside Newcastle Magistrates court.
We will not chase white people into the sea. We will give them portion… That is where you stay. And you can’t own bigger than us. You are a visitor. Visitors must behave. They must know the land belongs to the people of South Africa, the indigenous people of South Africa. […] For as long as the land is not in the hands of black people we remain a conquered nation! We are conquered! We are defeated! 1994 means NOTHING without the land! Victory will only be victory if the land is restored in the hands of rightful owners. And rightful owners unashamedly is black people. No white person is a rightful owner of the land here in South Africa and in the whole of the African continent. This is our continent, it belongs to us. - Malema (again)
Point 1: FACT- land in South Africa was taken through the mass butcher/slaughter of black people both under colonization & apartheid. 2. It's been 22yrs since 1994. We hope land restoration will not have to come to a situation where blacks have to also slaughter whites. 3. Each day blacks are assaulted by red ants, removed from lands they occupy due to landlessness. The state collaborates to deny blacks land. 4. We don't believe in any genocide of any group to address land question. Even though land dispossession of blacks was through mass murder. 5. It is more violent to ask homeless & landless blacks to buy land from whites as a form of democratic solution in the willing seller policy. 6. Our policy moves from the premise that colonization was a land crime. To resolve it you must restore land without compensation! 7. Whoever rejects land expropriation without compensation is asking blacks to accept their status in SA as a defeated & inferior people. 8. We not calling for any slaughter, but if people think blacks will continue to live in landlessness, then we won't have to. It will happen! 9. The reason EFF was formed is to resolve land question democratically, through legislation that expropriates without compensation! – EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi’s defence of Malema’s remarks (on Twitter.)
You can't speak against whites in this country and don't expect the ruling party and media to attack you, the protectors of white privilege – Malema comment on Twitter over the subsequent controversy over his remarks.
