THE APF & THE 2009 NATIONAL ELECTIONS: (Debate & discussion)

Tuesday 13 January 2009 by Dale

Ever since the formation of the APF in 2000, there has been a well known and ongoing debate within our movement around participation in elections as well as our strategic and tactical approach to electoral politics. This debate has again resurfaced within our ranks given the 2009 national elections scheduled to take place within the next few months. In the spirit of this ongoing debate and as a specific response to those in our ranks who are pushing for the APF to participate in the 2009 elections as part of a ‘United Front of Socialist Movements & Parties’, I offer the perspectives/arguments below for APF members.

Distorted theory, distorted revolution

The theory of 2 stages of revolution and the NDR is a myth (Debate & discussion)

The SACP must not be allowed to repeat or rehash its theoretical & strategic mistakes
Wednesday 4 October 2006 by Trevor

The South African Communist Party has recently given birth to the Young Communist League. It is very important that these young lions do not get misled by the theoretical shibboleths, myths and confusions of the SACP. One of the greatest myths propounded by the SACP over the years of struggle against apartheid is the theory of 2 stages of revolution contained in their National Democratic Revolution perspective. History has now exposed this theory as utterly wrong and false. We must not allow the SACP to rehash this theory and continue spreading confusion among ordinary workers and youth.

Let us unite to smash corrupt, capitalist municipalities (Debate & discussion)
