April 21, 2014 -- Former leading member of the South African Communist
Party (SACP) and former government minister *Ronnie Kasrils*, together
with another former minister Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge, has launched the
Vukani! Sidikwe! (Wake up! We are fed up!) Vote No! campaign. It calls
on South Africans to "vote no" at the May 7, 2014, general election to
the corruption and neoliberal economic policies of the African National
Congress (ANC) and the right-wing oppostion, the Democratic Alliance
(DA). Kasrils' call has provoked widespread debate on the South African
left and condemnation from the SACP and the ANC.
Below, /Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal/ publishes an
article by Kasrils on the reasons behind the campaign, as well as some
commentary from the left.
