FW DE KLERK SHOULD BE STRIPPED OFF HIS NOBEL PEACE AWARD http://popcru.org.za/fw-de-klerk-should-be-stripped-off-his-nobel-peace-award/ http://popcru.org.za/fw-de-klerk-should-be-stripped-off-his-nobel-peace-award/#comments Thu, 25 Jun 2015 07:43:28 +0000 http://popcru.org.za/?p=2650 The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU) finds it disheartening that Former President De Klerk still believes in apartheid being a conducive policy to be continued against the peace loving people of Palestine.

When, for example, fighting patriarchy, one would not encourage those negatively affected (women) to discuss the issue among themselves, but to rather include men in the discussions for the purpose of men understanding the effects thereof from a female perspective, and in that regard, being part of finding solutions in effecting change that recognises women’s rights as equal partners.

In this regard, the oppressor must form part of the discourse with the oppressed if any progress is to be made.

By De Klerk claiming the sanctions against Israel would be counter-productive is equivalent to regretting the end of South African apartheid, and as an apartheid President himself, we would have thought he would take a different posture towards what is currently happening in Palestine.

Sanctions against South Africa played an instrumental role in forcing business to arrange negotiations between the Apartheid regime and the ANC-led alliance, and therefore would have perhaps shaped the country in a different manner had they not taken place. It would have meant the regime would have continued funding the terrorism and killings of black South Africans for longer.

In the midst of daily killings of the Palestinian people, our view is that De Klerk is not rehabilitated from his ‘glorious’ past, and should be stripped off his Nobel Peace award.

How shameful it is that the Democratic Alliance insists on honouring this man who still has firm beliefs in apartheid. Again, being that the DA emanates from the National Party resembles can only confirm it runs in the family.

EIGHTH [08TH] NATIONAL CONGRESS DECLARATION http://popcru.org.za/eighth-08th-national-congress-declaration/ http://popcru.org.za/eighth-08th-national-congress-declaration/#comments Mon, 22 Jun 2015 06:01:32 +0000 http://popcru.org.za/?p=2647  

15TH – 19TH JUNE 2015




The POPCRU 8th National Congress which brought together the National Office Bearers, Provincial Office Bearers, Officials, Locals and members from various institutions around the country within the Criminal Justice. We convened here from the 15th to the 19th of June 2015 at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre in Durban – KwaZulu Natal representing almost 160 000.

We, convened this historic 8th national congress at the time of celebrating our 25th year of existence within the Criminal Justice under the theme Transforming the Criminal Justice Cluster in defence of the working Class struggle for the advancement of the National Democratic Revolution acknowledging the most critical role that we have to play in pursuance of a more radical change towards the second phase of transition in the country. We are mindful of the fact that transforming the criminal justice is necessary as we continuously seek to advance the National Democratic Revolution [NDR].

We gathered here at a very crucial time in the history of a trade union movement is confronted with massive restructuring at various workplaces where workers are faced with massive retrenchments, casualisation, employment of illegal vulnerable immigrant workers and labour brokerage against the working class in the 30 years of neo-liberalism.

We were inspired by the pioneers of POPCRU since its inception in 1989 and the continued revolutionary and transformative role we continue to assert in the South African Police Service, Correctional Services and the Traffic component, wherein we are organising, mobilising and fighting for our membership conditions of work.

We were joined and welcomed by the KZN MEC for Economic Development, Tourism & Environmental Affairs – Mr Michael Mabuyakhulu and inspired by messages of support from the Minister of Transport Dipuo Peters, the General Secretary of the SACP Blade Nzimande, the COSATU President – Sidumo Dlamini, international union representatives from Mauritius, World Federation of Trade Unions in Athens, CTC from Cuba, NPB from Netherlands, Bopeu in Botswana, Leposa in Lesotho, from DRC, ICPRA representative from New Zealand, Minister of Police – Honourable Nkosinathi Nhleko, Political Analysts from Academia, Safer South Africa Foundation, Commissioners from SAPS and Correctional Service.

We gathered here after four [04] years since our last 7th national congress convened in Mangaung – Bloemfontein in 2011. We are now bigger, stronger and united than ever before as we pursue the working class struggle within the Criminal Justice.  We are certain that POPCRU remains a beacon of hope to Correctional, Police and Traffic Officers and it is the only available vehicle to champion the course of these workers in South Africa and elsewhere in the World.

The 8th national congress reflected extensively on the most pertinent issues affecting ordinary members and the society at large ranging from organisational, political, socio-economic factors and international. Our analogy through the deliberations is that transformation of the Criminal Justice can no longer be delayed anymore and we concede that the National Democratic Revolution remains the only direct route to socialism.

We re-affirm POPCRU’s 7th national congress resolution on building the Alliance. The Alliance is the only reliable structure to advance the NDR and to rally the entire society towards attaining the National Democratic Society.

We further re-affirm that the unity of POPCRU, COSATU, SACP and the ANC is sanctified and that the SACP remains and should forever remain the vanguard of the working class and the poor. This 8th national congress calls on the strengthening of the alliance in pursuance of the second radical transition.

We note the most critical political role played by members and the entire leadership of POPCRU during the turmoil within the federation. We re-affirm the COSATU’s CEC resolutions on the dismissal of both NUMSA and its former General Secretary – Zwelinzima Vavi. We declare that the unity of the Federation can never be compromised by organisations and/ or individuals, who have ulterior ideological motives to weaken, destroy and divide the unity of the working class.

We re-affirm our 2014 CEC resolution in support of ANC election mobilisation campaigns and the Violet Seboni Brigade towards the 2016 Local government elections and beyond. Any other political work should be continuously coordinated within the Violet Seboni Brigade. We have to closely work with the ANC and Sanco to make tangible impact in ensuring another overwhelming victory during the coming 2016 local government elections.

We have indeed reflected on the escalating violence and senseless attacks on Police Officers by criminals in pursuance of their criminal and immoral deeds which poses a serious threat to social country’s safety.

We are coming out of this 8th national congress to vehemently oppose a unilateral decision taken by the employer to contravene renege a signed wage agreement and we therefore call upon our membership and all Public Servants to confront this matter with the urgency it deserves to resolve the impasse. It is our steadfast conviction to declare and resolve on the following:

  1. Building POPCRU
  • To revive and strengthen advocacy in institutions through, amongst others, ‘Umrabulo’ campaigns that would also target Managers.
  • To strengthen political education and consciousness targeting members at institutional level.
  • To develop a retirement preparation programme that would not only focus on financial planning but re-skilling in preparation for life beyond formal employment.

That the leadership and members shall at all times confront and nab in the bud any foreign tendencies from within and outside the Organisation and the unbecoming tendencies of some former leaders of the movement that may have a potential to divide the organisation.

We are content that building POPCRU as a strong union movement within the Criminal Justice requires maximum unity of the working class built on the basis of worker democracy, collective leadership and membership service.

We declare to defend and protect POPCRU against the new liberal offensive, opportunistic and divisive characters and to develop our own strategy and tactics document which will enhance organisational growth over a period of eight years. With all this in mind we declare:

  • People focus and organisational structure
  • To enhance capacity at provincial and institution level through a comprehensive research and need analysis to determine a clear framework;
  • To embark on a country-wide empowerment and orientation programme for newly appointed office bearers and shopstewards within 6 months of their appointment.
  • To embark on a national mass participation and marketing campaign to conscientise the younger members – a marketing strategy will have to be developed in the short-term to start with this campaign.
  • To revive and strengthen advocacy in institutions through, amongst others, ‘Umrabulo’ campaigns that would also target Managers.
  • To strengthen political education targeting members at institutional level.
  • To develop a retirement preparation programme that would not only focus on financial planning but re-skilling in preparation for life beyond formal employment.
  • That the leadership and members shall at all times confront and nab in the bud any foreign tendencies from within and outside the Organisation and the unbecoming tendencies of former leaders of the movement that have a potential to divide the organization.
  • Membership service
  • We re-affirm that a POPCRU member is still our Priority and that membership service is key.
  • That we will do everything in our power to expose all managers who deliberately destabilize, victimise and cause labour unrest at various institutions and centres where we organise.
  • That we shall continue at all times to abide by the organisation’s policies to manage and account for the union’s resources without failure. 
  • Systems and processes
  • To strengthen the current internal communication strategies and ensure that we have a working mechanism to our members by investing in an alternative media channel on radio and TV to create a platform for information sharing and political education.
  • To enhance internal capacity for mandating processes for negotiators to improve operational efficiency.
  • Policy development and interaction
  • POPCRU should deliberately deploy comrades to the statutory bodies in the Criminal Justice Cluster to influence policy and transformation.
  • The discourse on a single bargaining structure for the cluster must be re-opened and taken to the political level for engagement. This will also be in line with the Polokwane ANC Congress Resolution on a ‘Single Police Service’.
  • In support of the alliance driving the National Democratic Revolution, it is imperative to initiate discussions on the review of Chapter 9 Institutions to ensure transformation.
  • Community participation and involvement

In order to fulfil its social transformation obligation, POPCRU must be visible in communities by partnering with progressive organisations to drive community projects, celebration and commemoration of national and international events or days.

  • Socio-economic transformation

Having regard to the growing socio-economic challenges facing the country, we noted that black people control only 3% of the JSE listed companies and hence the economy, which is an insult to the martyrs that died for freedom.

  • Black people have been systematically exploited and oppressed economically and South Africa now has one of the world’s most unequal patterns of distribution of income and wealth. We further declare:
  • That all COSATU affiliates in the public sector should advocate to re-direct the Government Employees Pension Fund [GEPF] and Public Service Corporation [PIC] operations and functioning to be in the forefront for advancement and radical transformation of the South African economy.
  • To mobilise all COSATU affiliates in the private sector to advocate for and campaign that their respective retirement’s funds should be at the forefront of funding infrastructure development projects in South Africa. In approaching this task, the GEPF and PIC laws must be immediately attended to for immediate amendment.
  • That POPCRU must develop a practical programme towards the establishment of a first Workers Bank in South Africa.
  • That POPCRU must develop a programme of consolidating the efforts of government in prioritising agriculture as a means towards ending poverty and ensuring food security to the masses of our people.
  1. Political
  • We adopt the comprehensive secretariat report and the political overview of the president, presented to the 8th congress, its detailed political analysis and its intended resolution.
  • We reaffirm historical strategic relationship of the role the alliance between ANC, SACP and COSATU played over the years and continues to play in transforming the lives of the poorest of the poor to the better. This strategic relationship of the alliance is beneficial to the working class and therefore must be jealously guarded.
  • We re-affirm our 7th National Congress resolution for COSATU to disaffiliate from International Trade Union Confederation [ITUC] and affiliation to World Federation of Trade Unions [WFTU] be speeded up. 
  • Security of the country
  • The regulation of the private security industry should be strengthened. The Private Security Industry Regulation Act as amended and adopted in 2014 should be enacted by the President. This should also look at vetting those employed by the security companies.
  • Government should stop using private security in securing its buildings.
  • Re-integrate the private prisons into government. [g. prisons run by G4S which is a private security company].
  • We further re-affirm the ANC Polokwane resolution on having all Police agencies under one Command.
  • Migration vs Xenophobia
  • That we condemn by all means the attack on foreign nationals that are in the country.
  • That the challenges related to lack of control of illegal immigrants is a serious threat to the security of the country and as an ingredient to criminality and xenophobic attacks.
  • That there should be stricter control of immigrants and visitors to the country.
  • The department of Home Affairs should be capacitated in order for it to be able to deal with migration and alleged corruption at all Ports of entry.
  • Non – Governmental Organisations [NGOs]
  • That the existence of and operations of these NOGs in the country should be seriously scrutinised.
  • That their real ideological agenda which is directed at weakening and dislodging the current government should be exposed.
  • We must look at the source of funding for these NGOs and that the agency tasked with regulating NGOs should be strengthened.
  • Security of State information
  • That State information must be adequately secured in order to ensure that it is not exposed to external forces.
  • That protection of information at the disposal of the State and the partnership between the banks and the Department of Home Affairs should be re-looked.
  • That the signing of the Protection of Information Bill must be promulgated into law. As we move towards the COSATU National Congress, we should advance this position at the level of the federation for the immediate review of the initial position.
  • That community participation should be enhanced in the security of the country, crime prevention and reform of the criminal justice.
  • That there should a better mechanism to ensure appropriate management of community protests and better response by the criminal justice and national security agency. 
  • Power and influence of the media
  • That GCIS should be strengthened.
  • That we should engage and campaign against the use of these hostile media houses by government for advertising and other businesses.
  • We re-affirm the previous COSATU resolution on the need for a left alternative – a worker owned and controlled media.
  • That the SACP be strengthened in terms of funding to establish its own media ownership and resuscitate the discussion on Media tribunal.
  • That we will join forces together with the SACP to lead a programme of media transformation.
  1. The Unity of the Federation – COSATU

We the delegates to this 8th national congress rejects any form of attack waged against our federation – COSATU and declare further declare:

  • That we have capacity to defend and protect the unity and cohesion of our beloved federation to the bitter end and that the unity of the federation is sacrosanct.
  • That we will together with other progressive COSATU affiliates, develop strategies and tactics to unite all workers and that we will not run the federation through Courts and waste the little resources at our disposal.
  • That we will fully participate in the coming Special national congress convened for July 2015 in order to advance the working class unity and that the leadership must remain resolute in enforcing discipline.
  • That the decision to accept LIMUSA as an affiliate organising metal workers was correct and progressive. 
  1. International solidarity
  • That we pledge solidarity with the people and workers of the countries that are currently experiencing Western driven wars that disrupt normal life.
  • That all countries of the world are sovereign and have a right to maintain it without any interference from the Western powers.
  • That we fully support the participation and membership of SA into the BRICS and the efforts made to establish a Development Bank.
  • We re-affirm that our programme to unionise the SADC region to continue in order to free the majority of Police officers from exploitation.
  1. Conclusion

As we conclude this historic 8th national congress, we come out as united as ever to continue to build a strong POPCRU for a united and a strong COSATU – our beloved federation.

We commit ourselves that the resolutions taken in this 8th national congress will be communicated to the entire structures and membership of POPCRU.

Dear comrades,

Brothers and sisters of POPCRU,

Delegates and guests,

Allow me to transfer to you the best wishes of the 92 million members of the WFTU, from 126 countries all over the world, and the personal wishes of the GS of WFTU to POPQRU and to the POPQRU leadership for a successful congress.

Your congress, your decisions and resolutions will become a valuable asset, not only for your members but to the class trade unions of the world, as your congress takes place in a very special period.

Firstly, as you discuss, your congress takes place in a period when the international capitalist crisis has advanced a new attack against workers all over the world. From wage cuts and layoffs in Europe and North America, to wars, starvation and poverty to Asia, Middle East, Africa. Under the crisis of capitalism, we witness the rottenness of system that feeds from our flesh and blood. We witness wealth, enough to feed the masses, to be spent for the provocative luxurious life of the few. The few who do not work, do not contribute the advancement of humanity. The few, for whom does not apply your slogan, JUSTICE FOR ALL, but the few who thrive through injustice and exploitation.

This phenomenon of injustice, of poverty for the many, and provocative wealth for the few, is the main cause that leads to crime, racism, xenophobia. The few, who in order to keep their power support neo-Nazi forces, who attack immigrants, trade unionists, communists. They promote a rise of oppression, a new attack against trade union rights and freedoms.

This attack, has the shameful backing of organizations that call themselves, workers’ representatives. Great example is the ITUC’s role in undermining the right to strike, as the ITUC has accepted the oppositions of the employers and the ILO on the right to strike. This is a development we will not accept. The growth of the attack we suffer, grows the need for a unified, organized class response by the working class. A response that the WFTU and its members have been fighting for 70 years now.

Dear comrades, this year our organization, WFTU, celebrates 70 Years of continuous fight for the rights of the working class. 70 years of fight for the abolishment of exploitation of man by man. 70 years that connect the struggles of the South African Workers, with the working class of Chile, Palestine, Nepal, Greece, of the heroic Cuba, as we all together in the great family of WFTU united our voices against fascism, against colonialism, against military dictatorships, against the apartheid, against imperialist wars, against the exploitation of Africa’s natural resources by monopolies. And today we continue to support the peoples who fight against imperialism. The people of Syria, of Palestine. Support not just in words, but with action. That is why the Israeli state arrested a WFTU cadre last Friday. They arrested, held and deported our comrade, because WFTU is a danger to the Israeli State, as they said. This provocation will not go unanswered. We will not be intimidated. We continue our unwavering support to the people of Palestine.

That is why this anniversary of the WFTU is not a typical issue. With events from India to Turkey, from Australia to Russia and from Egypt to Brasil the WFTU educates the new generation of trade unionists about the history, the struggles and the heritage of our movement. We make our history weapon against the lies, the slander and misinformation of the capitalist system. On the 70th anniversary of the WFTU, special part has the role and contribution of the South African trade union movement, of SACTU, of comrades like Moses Mabhida, Eric Stalin Mchali and so many others. All these lead to the duty we have today to continue their struggle, until the historic demands of the working class are realized. And allow me to say, that POPQRU has played an important role for this goal. POPQRU, along with NEHAWU, SEPAWU and of course with the great contribution of the SACP have played a key role for the South African trade union movement to become an important factor in the international trade union movement.

Comrades, here, from the 8th National Congress of POPQRU announce a great decision, for which you have played a key role. The Presidential Council of WFTU, which convened in June 6, accepted the request of COSATU for South Africa to host the 17th World Trade Union Congress of WFTU, in October 2016.This means, that for the next year and we wish also for the years to come, the Trade Union Movement of South Africa, will be the center of the world. Comrades, the world trade union congress will bring hundreds trade unionists from all over the world to South Africa. Trade unionists who are on the van guard of the workers’ struggles. Trade unionists from Cuba, Palestine, Vietnam, Venezuela, Greece, from wherever the workers are fighting against capitalism. But they will all come here, in South Africa. This brings a great duty to the trade unions of South Africa to represent, not only their homeland, but the whole African Region. To highlight the struggles of the working class of Africa against capitalism today. To propose action for the working class of the world. That is the role WFTU wants for you. To be the voice, the leader of the oppressed and the exploited not only of your country, but to be a loud voice, a strong voice for the workers of the world.

Dear comrades, this invitation is only one small part of the work we have done together the recent years. We, together, organized meetings, seminars, schools. We strengthened the exchange of information and experience, the support and solidarity of workers from all over the world. However, we cannot be satisfied. We must see our weaknesses, our delays. And by overcoming them, we will become stronger, more capable in our struggle.

In the next period, the trade union movement of South Africa will become the trade union center of the world. We trust though the World trade Union Congress you will be successful in promoting the interests of the working class of Africa, and pushing the whole trade union movement one more step forward. It is a great task, but your congress today, the steps you plan for the next period make us optimistic.

The success of your congress, your resolutions, your decisions will contribute a year from now to the 17th World Trade Union Congress of WFTU.

So dear comrades, be strong, keep the fire burning, we are with you!

    As labour, especially within the mining sector, faces challenges, we are hopeful that the Union leadership will play a decisive role in regaining lost ground.

    Our common strength lies in our ability as COSATU affiliates in jointly mobilising the workers and the working class for a united, solid federation with and for the interests of workers.
