GAPP Strengthens Role in Internationalist Soldarity Networking with the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) of AZANIA/SOUTH AFRICA

The Global Afrikan People’s Parliament in United Kingdom (GAPP-UK) was strongly represented at an Internationalist Solidarity networking meeting with a visiting Leadership Delegation of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) of South Africa at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, on Saturday, 28th November 2015. The meeting, which resulted from discussions and planning going on for some considerable time between interested parties, was presided over by Brother-Fighter Dali Mpofu, the EFF Chair, Brother-Fighter Floyd Nyiko Shivambu, the EFF Vice-President and Member of both the South African Parliament and the Pan-African Parliament (PAP), as well as Sister-Fighter Nkagisang Poppy Mokgosi, an EFF Member of the South African Parliament. It was facilitated by Kofi Mawuli Klu, a Co-Vice-Chair of the Pan-Afrikan Reparations Coalition in Europe (PARCOE) and a member of the Leadership Facilitation Team (LFT) of GAPP-UK. After kick-starting propositions by Dali, Floyd, Nkagisang, Brian Kwoba, Esther Stanford-Xosei and Kofi, followed by discussions involving a good number of participants, the meeting endorsed the establishment of an Economic Freedom Fighters Internationalist Solidarity Action Command (EFFISAC), to be organised and coordinated from London, United Kingdom. It was agreed that a South African-led EFF Support Group that is organising itself in Britain into a local party branch of the EFF Abroad will also be an autonomous integral part of the EFFISAC.

Building strong relations with the EFF of South Africa and similar radical contingents of the resurgent Pan-Afrikan Liberation movement at home and abroad is a vital part of the Glocal Activism element in the Strategic Organisational Plan of the GAPP-UK, with particular regard to its relevant cardinal action points such as the PANAFRIKAMAYIBUYE Pan-Afrikan Liberation Movement Global Revival Action Learning Safaris (PANAFRIKAMAYIBUYE-PALMGRALS) and the All-Afrikan People’s Global Lobby for Unity Solutions (AAPGLUS). Hence the highlighting in the meeting of some of the priority campaigning endeavours of our Afrikan Heritage Community for National Self-Determination (AHC-NSD) in Britain such as the urgent need to give stronger internationalist solidarity push to the STOP THE MAANGAMIZI: We Charge Genocide/Ecocide Campaign and its accompanying Petition as an imperative for enhancing the massive glocal building of the International Social Movement for Afrikan Reparations (ISMAR) as one of the most dynamic galvanizing columns of the Peoples’ Reparations International Movement (PRIM). Activists of the GAPP-UK in the meeting also impressed upon the Delegation our request through the EFFISAC to the EFF Leadership to officially mandate Brother-Fighter Floyd Nyiko Shivambu to serve as the ISMAR/PRIM Chief Liaison Facilitator in the Pan-Afrikan Parliament and also to help us promote in and beyond the PAP our demand and glocal lobbying for a Pan-Afrikan Reparatory Justice Law of Holistic Rematriation/Repatriation (PARJLOHRR).
