EFF calls for dismissal of AU Chairperson and officials

Published on

The EFF has called for the immediate removal of the AU Chairperson and all officials who were involved in granting Israel observer status in the union.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), on Wednesday, 28 July 2021, called for the dismissal of the African Union (AU) Chairperson. In a statement by the party, it rejected the decision by the AU Commission to grant what it has called the “racist Zionist apartheid state of Israel” observer status in the AU.

The EFF called the decision shameful and expressed that it believes that it undermines the struggle against an assault on Palestinians human rights, supported and sustained by what it referred to as Western imperialist regimes. The EFF stated that this decision makes the AU complicit in the continued killings of Palestinians and goes against the AU’s commitment to principles of self-determination and decolonisation.

The party emphasised that the solidarity for the freedom of oppressed people for Africa should be unconditional and that Africans, guided by the spirit of the founders of the AU, should always be on the side of the oppressed people. The EFF called on the AU to lead by example and get the continent to isolate and boycott Israel, and not rest until the people of Palestine are free, further calling for the immediate removal of the chairperson and officials.
