Ronnie Kasrils on Nationalisation and the History of South Africa's Economic Policy Choices
 
19:19
On 13 March 2014, The South African Civil Society Information Service and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) South Africa Office co-hosted a panel discussion, Beyond Nationalisation, which interrogated how South Africa's mineral resources could be exploited to bring greater benefit to the people of South Africa. The discussion was opened by Renate Tenbusch, the Resident Director of the FES South Africa Office and facilitated by Fazila Farouk, Executive Director of SACSIS. Ronnie Kasrils was actively involved in the ANC during a crucial time in South Africa's history. It was the time when the ANC opted to turn away from nationalisation as a policy choice. He provided valuable insights into how that came to be and talked about the Norwegian Sovereign Wealth Fund, as a model for consideration. Ronnie Kasrils was Minister for Intelligence Services from 27 April 2004 to 25 September 2008. He was a member of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the African National Congress (ANC) from 1987 to 2007 as well as a member of the Central Committee of the South African Communist Party (SACP) from December 1986 to 2007. Other panelists at the event were Cosatu Straegist, Neil Coleman and Duma Gqubule founder and director of KIO Advisory Services.

De Klerk: ANC split would be 'healthy' for South Africa -Talk to Al Jazeera
 
24:51
Former President of South Africa Frederik Willem de Klerk has criticised current leader Jacob Zuma's African Nationalist Congress (ANC) party for failing to realise the country's potential after the end of apartheid. The man who helped to bring an end to the country's apartheid policy by developing a one-person-one-vote policy across the country told Al Jazeera he was "very concerned" that race continues to dominate politics in the country, calling for South Africa to "normalise" its politics. 'The ANC is being torn apart' "[South Africa needs to move] away from ethnically driven politics towards policy-driven politics where people ... irrespective of race or colour can ... work together because they believe in the same things," he told Al Jazeera's Yehia Ghanem. Pointing to poor economic policy and corruption under Zuma, de Klerk said that the ANC could not continue to exist in its current form. "Bad leadership has led us to a point where the president of a country has lost his credibility. The ANC is being torn apart by faction fighting at the moment, and we don't have clear, well-balanced, credible and morally sound political leadership in South Africa," he said. "[The ANC] will split because you have in the same party true red communists, you have people committed to free enterprise, you have people with totally different ideological and policy principles in which they believe," said de Klerk. "It cannot last. So, I see a split and I think that can be healthy for South Africa." - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Cosatu says ANC leaders who are saying nationalisation of mines is not an option are ill-disciplined
 
01:33
Cosatu says ANC leaders who are saying nationalisation of mines is not an option for South Africa are ill-disciplined. This follows ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe's comments yesterday when he warned investors not to blackmail the ruling party on the issue. The ANC is contemplating the findings of a report it's commissioned to look into the feasibility of nationalisation. Mining Minister Susan Shabangu and Planning Minster Trevor Manuel's insist it's not an option.

The South African Shack Dwellers Trying to Find a Voice (2008)
 
30:43
A Place in the City (2008): Inside the struggle of South Africa's post-apartheid shack dwellers For downloads and more information visit: http://journeyman.tv/59335/short-films/a-place-in-the-city.html More than a decade after apartheid ended millions of South Africans still live in basic home-made shacks. We hear from the inhabitants as they eloquently argue their case for real citizenship rights. The shack dwellers movement, Abahlali baseMjondolo, began in 2005. Their slogan is 'Talk to us, not about us.' 'It's not that people like to live in shacks. No one will ever want to live in these conditions but they need to be close to their work' explains S'bu Zikode, Abahlali's elected leader. However, the group has not been welcomed by the ANC. They've been met with aggression rather than with negotiations. Police shot Mariet Kikine with six rubber bullets at a peaceful demonstration. 'I'm not stopping to fight the government for my rights. Now they've made me brave.' In the build-up to the 2010 soccer World Cup, Durban shack dwellers fear they will be bulldozed out of the city, or arrested. 'This new legislation makes it a crime to build shacks or resist demolition and eviction.' But the shack dwellers are determined not to give up.

Massacre of  South African Labor Unionists
 
26:37
Paul and Joanie join Alison Dundee and Barry James to discuss recent violence against strikers in South Africa. The Partisan Defense Committee (PDC) is calling for a demonstration to protest the August 16 massacre of 34 striking South African miners at the Lonmin Platinum-run Marikana mine northwest of Johannesburg, South Africa. We say: Protest Massacre of South African Strikers! Free Jailed Miners—Drop All Charges! Victory to the Striking Miners! The PDC calls to protest outside the South African Consulate, on the corner of East 38th Street and First Avenue in New York City. Thursday, August 30, 2012 4:30 pm -- 6 pm The South African cops of the Tripartite Alliance government of the African National Congress (ANC), the South African Communist Party (SACP) and the COSATU trade union federation, perpetrated this slaughter—one of the worst in South African history. The blood of working people is on their hands. And yet, outrageously, the miners were blamed for this massacre! Some 260 workers were arrested the same day as the massacre and are now rotting in jail; they were denied bail and are facing charges ranging from public violence to murder and attempted murder. Workers internationally should demand: Drop all charges against the Lonmin striking miners! In response to the massacre, other miners have been raising demands similar to those that sparked the Marikana strike. We say: Victory to the striking South African miners!

Deb Haaland is hoping to become the first Native American woman in Congress. She’s running for the Democrats in the state of New Mexico. She wants to change the face of US politics and take a stand against US President Donald Trump. Deb Haaland thinks that the policies of President Trump’s administration are racist and sexist. She does not believe that they are in the interests of ordinary Americans. She wants to take a stand against them in Congress and be an outspoken voice for women and Native Americans. Though her explicit left-wing views are not uncontroversial within her own Democratic Party, she has good chances of winning the state of New Mexico.

Gold Mine Geology Trip
 
08:08
At the beginning weeks of my first year of college in pursuit of my geology degree, I had the pleasure of being invited to go on a trip to a couple of gold mines with my instructors along with many well known and respected geologists. I learned much on this trip as we were taught about the local geologic formations in the area along with the origins of local deposits and the history of the mining activity. In the video I show a couple of ore and bore hole samples from a few of the mines and give some information about them. Hope you enjoy the video, if you have any questions let me know.

Christopher Hitchens on Racism and Ending South African Apartheid (1985)
 
55:19
While international opposition to apartheid grew, the Nordic countries in particular provided both moral and financial support for the ANC. Hitchens' books: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=7d003f18a0506229f225ec2f864ae762&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=hitchens On 21 February 1986 -- a week before he was murdered -- Sweden's prime minister Olof Palme made the keynote address to the Swedish People's Parliament Against Apartheid held in Stockholm. In addressing the hundreds of anti-apartheid sympathisers as well as leaders and officials from the ANC and the Anti-Apartheid Movement such as Oliver Tambo, Palme declared: "Apartheid cannot be reformed; it has to be eliminated." Other Western countries adopted a more ambivalent position. In Switzerland the Swiss-South African Association lobbied on behalf of the South African government. In the 1980s both the US Reagan and UK Thatcher administrations, followed a 'constructive engagement' policy with the apartheid government, vetoing the imposition of UN economic sanctions on South Africa, justified by a belief in free trade and a vision of South Africa as a bastion against Marxist forces in Southern Africa. Thatcher declared the ANC a terrorist organisation,[103] and in 1987 her spokesman, Bernard Ingham, famously said that anyone who believed that the ANC would ever form the government of South Africa was "living in cloud cuckoo land".[104] By the late 1980s, however, with the tide of the Cold War turning and no sign of a political resolution in South Africa, Western patience with the apartheid government began to run out. By 1989, a bipartisan Republican/Democratic initiative in the US favoured economic sanctions (realised as the Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act of 1986), the release of Nelson Mandela and a negotiated settlement involving the ANC. Thatcher too began to take a similar line, but insisted on the suspension of the ANC's armed struggle.[105] Britain's significant economic involvement in South Africa may have provided some leverage with the South African government, with both the UK and the US applying pressure on the government, and pushing for negotiations. However, neither Britain nor the US were willing to apply economic pressure upon their multinational interests in South Africa, such as the mining company Anglo American. Although a high-profile compensation claim against these companies was thrown out of court in 2004,[106] the US Supreme Court in May 2008 upheld an appeal court ruling allowing another lawsuit that seeks damages of more than US$400 billion from major international companies which are accused of aiding South Africa's apartheid system.[107] By 1980, as international opinion turned decisively against the apartheid regime, the government and much of the white population increasingly looked upon the country as a bastion besieged militarily, politically, culturally, ideologically, economically and socially by communism and radical black nationalists. Considerable effort was put into circumventing sanctions, and the government even went so far as to develop nuclear weapons, with the help of several different sources; these sources allegedly include Israel.[110] In 2010, The Guardian released South African government documents that revealed an Israeli offer to sell Apartheid South Africa nuclear weapons.[111][112] Israel categorically denied these allegations and claimed that the documents were minutes from a meeting which did not indicate any concrete offer for a sale of nuclear weapons. Shimon Peres said that The Guardian article was based on "selective interpretation... and not on concrete facts."[113] The term "front-line states" referred to countries in Southern Africa geographically near South Africa. Although these front-line states were all opposed to apartheid, many were economically dependent on South Africa. In 1980, they formed the Southern African Development Coordination Conference (SADCC), the aim of which was to promote economic development in the region and hence reduce dependence on South Africa. Furthermore, many SADCC members also allowed the exiled ANC and Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) to establish bases in their countries. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apartheid_in_South_Africa

Spain's Plan to Quit the Coal Industry Explained | NowThis World
 
05:03
Climate change is happening. And one industry in particular will have to undergo a huge transformation and all but disappear by 2050…. The coal industry. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2TVSSsk But what does this mean for that industry and governments around the world? And what about the workers the coal industry employs? We’re taking a look at the steps one country is taking to prepare for a clean energy economy, while trying to make sure no one gets left behind. To avoid the most devastating consequences of climate change, a United Nations panel of scientists has recently warned that drastic action is required around the world. In Spain. Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez government's priorities was taking immediate action to address climate change. That meant drastic action to limit Spain’s coal industry. The country had to comply with a European Union directive that said that public funds could no longer be used to keep unprofitable coal mines open. This meant that those mines had to be shut down by the end of 2018. And that is exactly what happened. By December of 2018, roughly three out of four of Spain’s coal miners clocked out of work for the last time. Spain’s socialist government cut a deal with several affiliated miner’s unions, referred to as the ‘Just Transition’ deal.” So we’re taking a look at the innovative steps Spain is taking to prepare for a clean energy economy, while trying to make sure no one gets left behind.

Jack Shenker: Marikana, the ANC and poverty in South Africa today
 
02:00
Author Jack Shenker discusses the Marikana massacre in the context of the South African economy and the role of the ANC. "Marikana" by Jack Shenker is available as an ebook here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Marikana-Jack-Shenker-ebook/dp/B00VS1HVFW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1429107607&sr=8-1&keywords=marikana+jack+shenker On 16 August 2012, the world looked on in horror as South African police gunned down striking mine workers at Marikana, leaving thirty-four dead and many more wounded. It was a massacre that echoed apartheid-era violence at Sharpeville and Soweto, shattering the international image of South Africa as a liberated 'rainbow nation'. The bloodshed laid bare the lingering inequalities and class tensions that have endured beyond South Africa’s democratic transition, and which the ruling African National Congress has done little to address. Marikana, an ebook exclusive by award-winning Guardian journalist Jack Shenker, explores the origins of the massacre and the truth behind the establishment’s attempted cover-up, which has played out against a backdrop of growing popular disillusionment with the ANC and a spike in worker militancy. Weaving together the history of international mining interests in southern Africa, the mutation of the ANC from economic radicals into free-market cheerleaders and the emergence of new forms of popular resistance, Marikana poses vital questions about the massacre’s legacy both within South Africa’s borders and beyond. Offering a new and invaluable insight into one of the darkest episodes in South Africa’s modern history, Shenker’s work could not be more timely.

Jack Shenker: Marikana
 
09:48
"Marikana" by Jack Shenker is available as an ebook here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Marikana-Jack-Shenker-ebook/dp/B00VS1HVFW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1429107607&sr=8-1&keywords=marikana+jack+shenker On 16 August 2012, the world looked on in horror as South African police gunned down striking mine workers at Marikana, leaving thirty-four dead and many more wounded. It was a massacre that echoed apartheid-era violence at Sharpeville and Soweto, shattering the international image of South Africa as a liberated 'rainbow nation'. The bloodshed laid bare the lingering inequalities and class tensions that have endured beyond South Africa’s democratic transition, and which the ruling African National Congress has done little to address. Marikana, an ebook exclusive by award-winning Guardian journalist Jack Shenker, explores the origins of the massacre and the truth behind the establishment’s attempted cover-up, which has played out against a backdrop of growing popular disillusionment with the ANC and a spike in worker militancy. Weaving together the history of international mining interests in southern Africa, the mutation of the ANC from economic radicals into free-market cheerleaders and the emergence of new forms of popular resistance, Marikana poses vital questions about the massacre’s legacy both within South Africa’s borders and beyond. Offering a new and invaluable insight into one of the darkest episodes in South Africa’s modern history, Shenker’s work could not be more timely.

This is Botswana: An Independence Special
 
05:41
Botswana gained independence from The Great Britain on 30 September 1966 Before independence, it was called the Bechuanaland Protectorate A transformation from Bechuanaland to Botswana was a very interesting one One of the first things anybody from Botswana would tell you is that unlike a lot other countries in Africa, Botswana was not colonised Britain originally established the Bechuanaland Protectorate on 31st March 1885, that’s a long time ago And they decided, “we’re not going to give much attention and development to this little piece of desert whose profitability is dubious Just when they thought they’d won the battle, another threat to their power came from an Englishman by the name of Cecil Rhodes and his British South Africa Company (BSAC). By 1894, the British had all but agreed to allow Cecil Rhodes to control the country. The three Chiefs, decided, “you guys aren’t taking us seriously, so we’re gonna go straight to England, where we will see Colonial Minister Joseph Chamberlain to ask for continued Government protection of Bechuanaland.” Accompanied by WC Willoughby on their trip to England, their pleas to the British Government were unsuccessful. As a last resort, they turned to the London Missionary Society (LMS), which, out of fear that this man, Cecil Rhodes, would allow alcohol into the country, got support of other Christian groups and together with the Chiefs’ pressurised the British government. Public pressure mounted and the British Government was forced to concede. The capital of the protectorate was established at Mafikeng actually in South Africa. In 1924, South Africa began pressing for Bechuanaland’s amalgamation into the Union of South Africa, and when the Tswana chiefs refused, economic sanctions destroyed whatever was there as Bechuanaland’s economy. During WWII, 10, 000 Batswana volunteered for the African Pioneer Corps to defend the British Empire. After the war Seretse Khama, the legitimate heir to the Bangwato tribe, went to study in England where he met and married an Englishwoman, Ruth Khama. Tshekedi Khama, Seretse’s uncle, was furious at this breach of tribal custom, and the South African authorities, still hoping to absorb Bechuanaland into the Union of South Africa (these guys were patient. I think it was the alcohol), were none too happy. The British government blocked Seretse’s chieftaincy and he was exiled from the Protectorate to England. Bitterness continued until 1956 when Seretse Khama returned with his wife to Bechuanaland to serve as a minor official. The road to independence In 1955 it had become apparent that Britain was preparing to release its grip on Bechuanaland. Following the Sharpeville massacre in 1960, South African refugees Motsamai Mpho of the African National Congress (ANC) and Philip Matante, a Johannesburg preacher affiliated with the Pan-Africanist Congress, along with KT Motsete, a teacher from Malawi, formed the Bechuanaland People’s Party. Its immediate goal was independence for the Protectorate. In 1962, Seretse Khama and Quett Masire formed the Bechuanaland Democratic Party (BDP), and were joined by Chief Bathoen II of the Ngwaketse. The BDP formulated a schedule for independence and promoted the transfer of the Capital from Mafikeng, to Gaborone, which was within Bechuanaland. A new non-racial constitution was drafted under the BDP, and a countdown to independence was set up to allow for a proper transfer of power. That’s how on 30 September 1966, the country, now called the Republic of Botswana, gained independence from The Great Britain. Going forward as Botswana Botswana was economically transformed by the discovery of diamonds near Orapa in 1967. The mining concession was given to De Beers with Botswana taking 75% of the profits. After the death of Khama in 1980, Sir Ketumile Masire took the helm. His presidency ended in March 1998 when Dr. Festus Mogae took over. Mogae’s rule ended in 2008, where, on first April, his vice president, Lieutenant General Seretse Khama Ian Khama became the fourth and current President of Botswana. Today Botswana boasts as the shining example of democracy in Africa And the world A transparent nation, whose governance has been praised by international organisations of repute Botswana’s economy, which was at ground level at independence, has seen the country grow from that little vagabond in the middle of Southern Africa, to a powerhouse and an envy of many African states. Covering 582, 000 Square kilometres in area Botswana is the 48th largest country in the world by area, A shocking detail about Botswana is that for a country that goes to bed early everyday, it has a population of only a little over 2 million people.

Mozambique: The child trafficking hub of southern Africa | Global 3000

The 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is a human rights treaty setting out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children. The nations that ratified it are bound to it by international law. One of them is Mozambique. But in fact, the country has developed into a major hub of child trafficking in southern Africa. The children come from Mozambique itself, but also from Malawi, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. Roughly two years ago, Mozambique introduced special legal and administrative measures to stop the kidnapping, sale and trafficking of minors, but violations are rarely prosecuted. Global 3000 visits the Maputo Corridor near the South African border.

MINERS SHOT DOWN Trailer
 
02:21
A film by Rehad Desai / An Icarus Films Release http://icarusfilms.com/if-msd In August 2012, mine workers in one of South Africa's biggest platinum mines began a wildcat strike for better wages. Six days into the strike, the police used live ammunition to brutally suppress it, killing 34 and injuring many more. The police insisted that they shot in self-defense. MINERS SHOT DOWN tells a different story, one that unfolds in real time over seven days, like a ticking time bomb. The film weaves together the central point of view of three strike leaders, Mambush, Tholakele and Mzoxolo, with compelling police footage, TV archive and interviews with lawyers representing the miners in the ensuing commission of inquiry into the massacre. What emerges is a tragedy that arises out of the deep fault lines in South Africa's nascent democracy, of enduring poverty and a 20-year-old, unfulfilled promise of a better life for all. A campaigning film, beautifully shot, sensitively told and accompanied by a haunting soundtrack, MINERS SHOT DOWN reveals how far the African National Congress has strayed from its progressive liberationist roots.

America During the Great Depression: Let’s Go America | Educational Film | 1936

America Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow" – is a dramatized educational film produced by the Audio Productions, Inc. in collaboration with the American National Industrial Council. It is one of many films sponsored by the National Association of Manufacturers during the Great Depression to foster faith in the economic leadership of its corporate members. Let’s Go America! suggests that the creative spirit that led to America’s development will continue to shape its economy. The narrator states that "new methods of modern industry have provided jobs, human comfort and greater opportunities for more people than our forefathers ever dreamed of by producing more of the things that people want." The film ends with two young men and a woman driving a swank roadster toward the glowing future, which promises television, air conditioning, innovative home design, streamline train, and air / space travel using "rocket ships". HISTORICAL BACKGROUND / CONTEXT The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, originating in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until 1941. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. The depression started in the United States after a major fall in stock prices that began around September 4, 1929, and became worldwide news with the stock market crash of October 29, 1929 (known as Black Tuesday). Between 1929 and 1932, worldwide gross domestic product (GDP) fell by an estimated 15%. (By comparison, worldwide GDP fell by less than 1% from 2008 to 2009 during the Great Recession.) Some economies started to recover by the mid-1930s. However, in many countries, the negative effects of the Great Depression lasted until the beginning of World War 2. The Great Depression had devastating effects in countries both rich and poor. Personal income, tax revenue, profits and prices dropped, while international trade plunged by more than 50%. Unemployment in the U.S. rose to 25% and in some countries rose as high as 33%. Cities all around the world were hit hard, especially those dependent on heavy industry. Construction was virtually halted in many countries. Farming communities and rural areas suffered as crop prices fell by about 60%. Facing plummeting demand with few alternative sources of jobs, areas dependent on primary sector industries such as mining and logging suffered the most. New Deal : The New Deal was a series of federal programs, public work projects, financial reforms and regulations enacted in the United States during the 1930s in response to the Great Depression. These programs included support for farmers, the unemployed, youth and the elderly as well as new constraints and safeguards on the banking industry and changes to the monetary system. Most programs were enacted between 1933–1938, though some were later. They included both laws passed by Congress as well as presidential executive orders, most during the first term of the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt. The programs focused on what historians refer to as the "3 Rs": relief for the unemployed and poor, recovery of the economy back to normal levels and reform of the financial system to prevent a repeat depression. The New Deal produced a political realignment, making the Democratic Party the majority (as well as the party that held the White House for seven out of the nine presidential terms from 1933–1969) with its base in liberal ideas, the South, traditional Democrats, big city machines and the newly empowered labor unions and ethnic minorities. The Republicans were split, with conservatives opposing the entire New Deal as an alleged enemy of business and growth and liberals accepting some of it and promising to make it more efficient. The realignment crystallized into the New Deal coalition that dominated most presidential elections into the 1960s while the opposing conservative coalition largely controlled Congress from 1939–1964.

Three Zulus arrive in Butte
 
01:59
Prince Siboniso Zulu of Nongoma, South Africa, is pictured upon his arrival at the Butte airport Friday afternoon. He's spending the summer in Butte -- a community he came to know through its public radio station, KMBF. He holds a degree in economics and is an entrepreneur who launched Nongoma 88.3 FM, a radio station in the hometown of Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu in South Africa's kwaZulu-Natal province. It's that radio station -- and Butte's KMBF -- that brought him to the Mining City.

Public protests are the voice of the voiceless | Ralph Mathekga | TEDxJohannesburg
 
10:12
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Ralph Mathekga is known for the clear and incisive analysis that he gives on politics and on the economy in a broad range of South African media. In this amusing but very serious TEDxJohannesburg 2014 talk, Mathekga makes the counter-intuitive posit that we should welcome the seemingly endless public protests that we see in South Africa on a daily basis as the essential struggle of ordinary people finding their voice in a fledgling democracy. Ralph Mathekga is the Founder and Director of ClearContent Research and Consulting. He holds a BA and MA in Political Studies, Law and Economic History from the University of the Witwatersrand. He is currently completing his PhD in Politics. He writes a weekly column in newspapers, and contributes to various media platforms on current affairs. His research interests lie in democracy and civil society in South Africa. Ralph on Twitter: @ralphmathekga Web: http://www.clearcontent.co.za About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
