Lindokuhle Mnguni speaks at the eKhenana Commune after his release from prison

Bishop Rubin Phillip, a partisan of liberation theology and at one point the deputy to Steve Biko in the Black Consciousness student organisation remains committed to the self-organisation of the oppressed. He has just released a statement of solidarity with the eKhenana Commune, a land occupation organised by Abahlali baseMjondolo in Durban, that has faced sustained state violent, and now a series of arrests on trumped up charges. The Commune includes the Frantz Fanon Political School, which is used for radical education for activists around South Africa.
