Date : 27th April 2017
Venue: Freedom Primary School
We have a serious problem with overcrowding in black townships as the demand for housing has increased. This has resulted in some of the communities like Freedom Park, Eldorado Park, Orlando, Motsoaledi, Kliptown any many more communities accommodating the influx by letting out backyard space, hence there is overcrowding.
We are calling on all the landless people who some of them live in backyards, shacks and hostels or paying rents in various landlords to attend a land occupation rally in Freedom Park at Freedom Primary School. We believe unity of all the landless people in mass action to occupy the land can force the stubborn arm of the state to release land to the Black Majority. We believe land occupation is the legitimate means to flee poverty and unemployment. If the landless majority acts together in unity to occupy all the lands then real freedom for the Black Majority will be achieved.
IF OUR LAND IS NOT FREE THEN NO ONE IS FREE TILL OUR LAND IS FREE.

Caeleen Zietsman, 12 years old, demonstrating today on Main Road, Greyton, for the release of her father, land rights activist HAROLD ZIETSMAN who has been held in custody since Tuesday 4 April on trumped up charges of public violence. The arrests of eight land rights activists followed the burning of the Greyton Market by unknown arsonists in the early morning of 4 April. Instead of demarcating the burned out market a crime scene, police officers stood by and watched while towns people cleaned away all the evidence and effectively made it impossible to ever forensically investigate this crime. Was this a simple blunder? An example of utterly useless policing? Or something more sinister? A deliberate attempt to make sure a forensic investigation was impossible, thereby allowing the incident to be used in order to round up the leadership of the Greyton Land Rights Committee? We demand justice for the Greyton Eight. FREE HAROLD ZIETSMAN
But the body knows the score, recognizes the crisis before the mind. It not only gets the steel ball rolling onto the intestines, but also activates the senses, setting them to the frequencies, at which the signals of new dangers can be received. Those signals appear as noise to the previous – pre-war – mind, as a breakdown in communication. The new mind, which the body floods with adrenaline, begins, like a rabbit in a forest of foxes – to decode all the signals, even if it’s not capable of fitting them into any narrative. The unified, ontologically comfortable mind splits: on the one hand, the pre-war mind refuses the possibility of catastrophe; on the other the war mind perceives everything as the signal that the end is nigh.
Stop Making Sense: What is noise now will be music later

Metalepsis in Black is an intersectional film about an intersectional movement at the point of its capture and transformation into “a category” by the very system it would purport to undermine. Mandatory viewing for all those interested in the whiteness of academe and the inevitable complicity with whiteness that Universities in South Africa demand.
