South African Parliament Formal Resolution Supporting the Cuban Five
Thursday, August 21, 2014

 The African National Congress hails the formal parliamentary resolution calling for the release of the remaining prisoners of the Cuban 5 who were arrested in 1998 for allegedly being involved in espionage against the United States of America. We believe that these compatriots did not target the USA but infiltrated Cuban elements that wanted to engage in terrorism to overthrow the Cuban government using Miami in the USA as a spring-board. This is a historic and ground breaking move by the South African parliament. This resolution has elevated the issue of the Cuban five to a national issue thus joining many progressive countries who have resolved to challenge this injustice against the state of Cuba. The ANC has embraced international solidarity as one of its pillars in the fight against apartheid and it managed to place the injustice of apartheid firmly on the international agenda. True to our internationalist outlook, this resolution will serve as a national platform to continue in our quest to pledge solidarity with our compatriots in Cuba who also paid dearly with their lives in fighting the erstwhile apartheid government.

PARLIAMENT’S ADOPTION OF THE RESOLUTION ON THE CUBAN FIVE
Thursday, August 21, 2014

 20 August 2014

The Office of the ANC Chief Whip welcomes the resolution of the National Assembly at its sitting last night calling for the immediate release and freedom of the remaining members of the Cuban Five. The Cuban Five are five Cuban men who were accused by the United States government of committing espionage and conspiracy against the United States of America, and as such were imprisoned since 12 September 1998. Two of the five men, René González and Fernando González, have since been released, in 2011 and 2014 respectively. The formal resolution of the South African Parliament calling the United States to release the Cuban Five, lift the economic blockade of Cuba and immediately engage Cuba more positively is a significant contribution to this international campaign, and further speak volumes about our country's political pursuit of peace, justice, reconciliation and human rights internationally.

Message to African Leaders attending the US-Africa summit in Washington from the 4th of August 2014
Thursday, August 07, 2014

 Today the 4th of August 2014 US President Barack Obama has summoned 50 African heads of state (Presidents Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe and Omar Al Bashir, of Sudan were excluded) to Washington, DC for the US-Africa Summit 2014. Of course Washington and USA capital are very concerned about trailing in the intensifying competition for the potentially enormously lucrative "African market" from China as well as the other European imperialist ex-colonial powers. It's definitely a new world for both the African peoples and governments and their leverage vis a vis capital. No longer fully at the whim of the "benevolence" of the "Western" powers Africa as a continent is rising and relatively advancing. The African working class is expanding alongside industrial and social development.
