The Workers International Vanguard League condemns the judges of the Labour Appeal Court as lackeys of monopoly capital. These judges have sentenced the 1400 VWSA dismissed workers to a hell of permanent unemployment. Their ruling today is nothing else but a death sentence for these workers and their families. This judgement highlights the true role of the courts as the guardian of capitalism, ensuring that the system of exploitation remains intact, that workers under capitalism will always remain slaves of the capitalists.
This case highlights also the true role of the ANC-SACP-COSATU tripartite alliance- it is an alliance with capital. The leaders of Numsa and Cosatu openly condemned their own members when their members stood up against GEAR policies on the shopfloor. The ANC leadership in the form of Kgalema Motlanthe and John Gomomo held secret meetings with the VWSA bosses before the mass dismissal, where they gave the blessing to the actions of the bosses. The Numsa leadership collaborated with the VW trade union bureaucracy on an international scale to dismiss the 13 democratically elected shopstewards at the VWSA plant in Uitenhage. The Numsa leadership used the very same courts to interdict their own shopstewards, instead of going to their own members on the shopfloor. The SACP leaders played a leading counter-revolutionary role in supporting the dismissal, from the then mayor Ndoni, to the regional Numsa leaders to the national SACP figures. They tried to pin the blame on others who came to help , such as WIVL, despite us only having come on the scene after the dismissal had already occurred.
The only way forward in this struggle and indeed for the broader working class is to break with the ANC and SACP and to form an independent revolutionary working class party, nationally and internationally. We salute the 9 fallen VWSA workers who perished in the struggle up to now. We salute all the VWSA workers for their brave stand against super-exploitation. We salute all the many thousands of workers nationally and internationally who rallied to the cause. The struggle now enters a very difficult new phase. Now is the time for all workers irrespective of union affiliation, to stand shoulder to shoulder to continue the battle until reinstatement is achieved. The struggle for reinstatement must be linked with the very struggle to overthrow this system that condemns many thousands of workers across the globe to a living death.
FORWARD TO MASS ACTION IN DEFENCE OF THE DISMISSED VWSA WORKERS!
