28 October 2011
The ANC Youth League Economic Freedom Mass Action finally arrived at the Caledonian Stadium for the night vigil in preparation for the economic freedom mass action to the Union Buildings. The Economic Freedom Mass Action started in Johannesburg on the 27th of October 2011 and proceeded to the Chamber of Mines, JSE and will culminate at the Union Buildings on Friday, the 28th of October 2011.
The first economic freedom fighters to arrive in Pretoria on foot from Johannesburg arrived at 02H56 and many are still arriving. This qualifies the economic freedom mass action to be the longest and greatest mass action ever lodged in history across the world. The ANC Youth League has once again proven to be an extra-ordinary organization with political, ideological and organizational capacity to influence massive progressive change in society.
The message sent to the people of South Africa, Africa and the world is very simple and clear-that the youth of South Africa will do everything in their power to realize total political, social and economic emancipation. The youth of South Africa are saying to the world that we are ready to take the baton from generations of political freedom fighters and fight for total economic emancipation, which is the real essence of any struggle in the world.
In the morning of Friday, the 28th of October 2011, the economic freedom mass action will proceed to the Union Buildings where a memorandum of demands to the South African State and government. Our demands should be responded to with immediate effect. It is now or never! Victory is certain!
