Every free action is produced by the concurrence of two causes; one moral, i. When I walk towards an object, it is necessary first that I should will to go there, and, in the second place, that my feet should carry me. If a paralytic wills to run and an active man wills not to, they will both stay where they are. The body politic has the same motive powers; here too force and will are distinguished, will under the name of legislative power and force under that of executive power.
Introduction The heroic upsurge of the Azanian South African people against the racist South African regime has been going on for well over a year and a half. We have witnessed mass demonstrations, strikes, boycotts, etc. But even these killings have led to new mass demonstrations, as thousands have attended the funerals, to mourn the casualties as well as to organize for further actions.
This movement shows the determination of the Azanian people to be masters in their own land, an independent Black republic. For it is clear that the only way the settler regime can be defeated is militarily.
We have seen the hypocrisy of the U. The liberals, on the other hand, would like to see a negotiated compromise between "responsible" Black leaders and more flexible elements among the settlers, a compromise that would lead to some form of "power sharing.
Both tactics are designed to keep South Africa friendly to the U. We in the U. We must understand the origins, history and tasks of the struggle of the Azanian people, and the organizations leading this struggle.
We must particularly understand the ties between the South African regime and the imperialist monopoly capitalist countries, especially U.
This is necessary to be able to give genuine political and material support to the Azanian liberation movement. It has been protracted, has often involved large numbers of people, and in certain cases, especially among students and their supporters, it has been militant.
However, its fundamental weakness is that it is led by liberals and reformists, who want to confine its aims and outlook to what is acceptable to the liberal bourgeoisie.
Revolutionaries in the U. We must also encourage working class participation and leadership of the support movement here, as well as rallying other forces. We should learn from the experience, both positive and negative, of the work of the African Liberation Support Committee during the early s, in which revolutionaries took the lead, mobilizing people for the first mass African Liberation Day demonstration in The revolutionary movement in the U.
The Afro-American movement can learn what the Azanian people well know, that the struggle against oppression is a revolutionary one.
And the Azanian movement can see that getting rid of the apartheid legal system is just the beginning. For we in the U.
These are some of the questions we would like to take up in this pamphlet. The information and views expressed in this pamphlet are by no means the final word on any of these questions. We realize that it may not represent a full picture of the South African revolution. As our research continues and more information becomes available, we will strengthen or revise our analysis.
As we go to press, the struggle in Azania intensifies. The masses have just conducted a general strike for May Day, in which half a million workers demonstrated; and they are preparing to commemorate the fallen martyrs of the Soweto rebellion. In New York City, thousands are expected to march and rally in Central Park in commemoration of this rebellion.
In Greensboro, North Carolina, as well, Azanian and Namibian students, along with community people and workers, will hold a small commemoration. This effort on our part is a tribute to the youth of Soweto. History of Colonization and Formation of the Settler State The history of South Africa and its peoples, like that of all peoples, does not begin or end with contacts with other nations, states and peoples.
More precisely, the tendency to begin the history of African peoples at the point of contact with Europeans is both ahistorical and racist. The history of any society is based on how its people fashion a living for themselves, how they contend with the forces of nature and consequently how the relations between people develop.
These production relations give rise to the development of classes within a given society, and the resulting struggle between them. However, the internal developments of a particular society are not isolated from other societies. In particular, the histories of the peoples of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East have been profoundly shaped by the rise of capitalism in Europe.
For this led to the European exploration and colonization in the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries, and later, imperialist plunder of the colonial world it created. In fact, all of the various struggles that rage today in the former colonies and semi-colonies have their roots in this colonial legacy.Over the next decade, women will control two thirds of consumer wealth in the United States and be the beneficiaries of the largest transference of wealth in our country’s history.
