Swaziland : for freedom, jobs, equality

The Communist Party of Swaziland supports all the demands of the workers, students, movements and individuals taking part in the days of action against the corrupt and oppressive regime of Mswati III and his “government”.

We stand with you and will fight for your freedom, for a fair and equal Swaziland where there is no more poverty and disease.

We will fight for work for all. We will fight for free education for all that leads to good jobs. We will fight to end the dictatorship.

Down with Mswati. Down with capitalism.

They are the reason Swaziland suffers so much HIV, TB, poverty, unemployment, oppression.

Yes to Socialism !

The Communist Party of Swaziland was formed just recently after years of preparation by Swazi women and men who want to give a Socialist direction to the fight against the Mswati dictatorship.

Socialism is the chance for men and women to share the wealth of the country, to be educated, to have work, to live in peace, to live in equality.

We call for :

• Unbanning of all parties and organisations. An interim government drawn from all parties, organisations, churches and trade unions to create the conditions for free and fair democratic elections in Swaziland.

• The ending of the monarchic autocracy and the transfer of much of its wealth to the immediate tasks of fighting disease and the worst aspects of poverty (such as access to water and sanitation) ; the confiscation of all crown property and the declaration of Swaziland as a republic.

• The dismantling of the hated tinkhundla system

• The isolation of the Mswati regime by all countries of the international community and the suspension of foreign business activity until the autocracy is dismantled

• The rights of all workers to organise into trade unions, that are in turn empowered to join the political process individually and through their federations

• Access to land by all who wish to work it under a controlled system of collective rights – in the short term to tackle the severe food scarcity that afflicts 40% of the population

• An emergency food security strategy, linked to the above demand

• The creation of radical processes to empower women in society, and to make women’s health a top priority in health care

• The creation of local workers and peasants organisations to articulate the needs of the urban and rural poor

• The creation of an emergency economic, industrial and employment strategy to begin to find a way out of the crisis brought about by the Mswati autocracy and the ruling class.

The Communist Party of Swaziland supports and is part and parcel of PUDEMO and SWAYOCO. They are the central players in the broad front for national liberation. The Communist Party of Swaziland calls for Swazi women and men to join PUDEMO and SWAYOCO and to further build them as dynamic forces for change.

Join the Communist Party of Swaziland to help the struggle against poverty, for equal chances for all men and women and youth.
