If I'm not mistaken these photos are from a few years back when they were on strike.

Korrek ja!

essentially cut from the same cloth.

This is the problem. The ANC and EFF are just degrees of the same ideology.
The EFF being intent on taking it to its conclusion. I wouldn't be surprised if a Soviet style revolution is their wet dream. Why else would you claim to be a Leninist organisation. I wonder if it is with tact that they do not confess to being Stalinists. I suspect that most whom support the EFF have no idea who Stalin or what the Soviet Union was and likely couldn't care less.

The danger of the ANC is not only that they are incompetent and corrupt. It is that they will continue to fail meeting their responsibilities and proceed to completely disappoint the poor in the country, but most egregious is that they will thereafter blame all the tragedy that follows from their own idiocy on an oppressive conspiring minority.

It is the incompetence and failure of the ANC that have created the demand for an EFF type group, but the red hat revolutionaries don't realise that after a genocidal massacre (if they can pull that off) the EFF will only be able to manifest abject poverty and its many blessings.

Here are some gems from EFF documents:

4. The EFF draws inspiration from the broad Marxist-Leninist tradition and Fanonian schools of thought in their analyses of the state, imperialism, culture and class contradictions in every society. Through organic engagement and a constant relationship with the masses, Economic Freedom Fighters provide clear and cogent alternatives to the current neo-colonial economic system, which in many countries keep the oppressed under colonial domination and subject to imperialist exploitation.

and

Expropriation of land without compensation for equitable redistribution.
 
1. The EFF’s approach to land expropriation without compensation is that all land should be transferred to the ownership and custodianship of the state in a similar way that all mineral and petroleum resources were transferred to the ownership and custodianship of the state through the Minerals and Petroleum Resources Development Act (MPRDA) of 2002. The state should, through its legislative capacity transfer all land to the state, which will administer and use the land for sustainable-development purposes. This transfer should happen without compensation and should apply to all South Africans, black and white.


In their vacuous reading of history everything is reduced to a one sided victim and oppressor narrative.

This is something to watch in ourselves. Victim mentality is a virus.
Nietzsche's slave morality has a lesson to teach here. As does Hegel's master–slave dialectic.

As soon as we consider ourselves to only be victims of the actions of an oppressor ruling class we are in danger of jumping onto a slippery slope of gradual ceding of agency and responsibility that leads to uselessness.

If we want to fix our situation, or create a place that we wish to stay in, it has to become our responsibility.
How does one start with that I wonder? Perhaps we start with ourselves and honesty.
"Thanks for asking neighbour, it's going kak actually. Some karton wants to take away my right not only to own land, but to own any means of production. He thinks it is better than he and his criminal friends dictate the actions of me and my family. So it's not going well, it's going quite kak actually."



Not really my place to comment regarding the state of SA.  Though I have been residing here in excess of 11 years, I still am an outsider looking in... but I would like to share a bit of wisdom from the Finns that I have picked up during my time up north which I have taken to heart and try to live by wherever I go.  For them (those that I know anyway) Finland is their home, anywhere else in the world, they are 2nd class citizens, so leaving their home is not an option.  Thus they do their best to beautify and make their country better, for what good is being rich when all around you is poverty and you only become a prisoner in your own home with high walls not only for keeping people out but also keeping you in.  Rather than constantly raising the height of the wall and in constant fear, improving the quality of life of your surroundings will negate the need for a wall and improve your quality of life as well...

I appreciate the general thrust of your thinking, focusing on improving what is in front of you. As Jung would say not considering your surroundings as being in any way separate from yourself and then proceeding to attend to all the parts of yourself that need tending to.

It must be noted that the Finns do not run into the problem of multiculturalism in the same way as what we do here in South Africa. This presents its own unique set of challenges. Ideology takes over from here onwards regarding what the appropriate thing to do is, but then it is ideological narrative that has been in the front seat this whole time. The mistake to make is to opine that all ideology stands on equal footing.

On that note in 2010 Angela Merkel said that multiculturalism has failed in Germany.
In 2015 she said that there should be no limitations on Muslim immigration from the Middle East to Germany.
You cannot have it both ways.
The line between honest acknowledgement that particular aspects of some doctrines are in direct conflict with certain aspects of other doctrines and unsophisticated low resolution group based discrimination is a fine one to traverse for some.
