ANCYL to protest at Board conference
Gauteng Premier David Makhura, and Dr Zweli Mkhize, ANC Treasurer General, will be among those participating in the SA Jewish Board of Deputies’ Gauteng Council, to be held this afternoon at Investec from 14:30 to 15:15.
The ANCYL media release, co-signed by Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) Chairman Matome Chiloane; PEC Secretary Bonisile Modise; and PEC Spokesman Mbali Hlophe, states that the “SAJBD are proving to be a bunch of hypocrites; we hereby inform them to spare their celebratory comments and rhetoric about freedom whilst on the other hand they support the Israel-led genocide against Palestine.”
“In the words of President Nelson Mandela,” says the release, “our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.”
They say they “remain unequivocal in our support for the Palestinian people in their struggle for self-determination, and are unapologetic in our view that the Palestinians are the victims and the oppressed in the conflict with Israel.”
