Lindela S. Figlan

Social movements in South Africa are divided, which renders them amenable to external pressures, according to Lindela Figlan. Unless they unite and pursue a common vision against capitalism, they will not succeed in their objectives.


If South Africa’s government ‘is really implementing the Freedom Charter, why are people complaining everywhere?’ asks Lindela S. Figlan. If ‘the ruling party was on the side of the poor it would encourage us to organise ourselves and to speak for ourselves…But instead it is always repressing the struggles of the poor’.
