Non-collaboration, thus was an irrefutable principle.

Hosea Jaffe (Author of A History of Africa)

This document supplements the material we published in Revolutionary History Vol. That radical statement was by none other than Mr Jaffe himself. Jaffe declined to hosa suit and made the NEF his kindergarten. He also wrote tracts on the situation in Ethiopia; the Solidarity Movement in Poland and the creation of Bangladesh.

I cast my vote against Jaffe, and his motion was lost by one vote. Human society was part of nature. Very soon it became the established form in the broad liberation movement, and reached its apotheosis in the late eighties when even De Klerk was compelled to accept non-racialism as the prescription for a future South Africa.

He presented tables and diagrams referring hoxea the period in support of his contention. The inescapable stumbling block to unity lay in the divisions among the non-White communities. The new situation required a radical rethink of the aims and objectives of the organisation that seemed becalmed in the ideology of the past.

To keep the Coloureds in the White kitchen they were reminded that they had white blood that flowed in their veins. Somehow Apartheid South Africa survived its worst crisis. As evidence he cited the fact that during the Nazi invasion of the USSR naffe were obliged to make use of the collective farm organisation, which was historically irreversible. On the 21st Marchthe massacre of Sharpeville occurred.


I suggested that perhaps the organisational aims were flawed: This article will attempt to trace its origins within yosea context of both national and international developments at the time and assess the parts played by some of those active in it. I take as my starting point the year with Nazi Germany on the retreat following the decisive battle of Stalingrad.

The tacit belief of the leadership of the NEUM was that the way towards Socialism lay via the national movement. The views expressed have been dealt with in more detail in Searchlight South Africa No. Membership lay only through joining one of the affiliated organisations.

The situation seemed apposite for a return of Jaffe to a — if not the — leading role in the movement.

The full franchise, free education to the age of 16, freedom of speech, press, movement, the right to own land with a new division of the land as a first requisite of a new democratic parliament hosfa, penal reform and the rights of workers to organise themselves. My differences are not personal, they are political!

Thus it was believed that it would be impossible for the state to ban the movement because of its diverse composition. Non-collaboration — the refusal to participate in or work the instruments of their own oppression, became a cardinal feature of the hpsea. This was interpreted by Tabata as meaning that any redivision of the land could take place only after the achievement of democratic rights.

Joe Rassool: Role of Hosea Jaffe

The words sent a chill through all those present at the meeting. In the last mentioned work Jaffe propounded one of his most controversial theories, namely that the European worker produced a negative surplus value.

All those who accepted those minimum demands without reservation could become part of the NEUM. The Movement gave the Soviet intervention its complete support. It drew forth fierce denunciations from members of the Forum Club, a Trotskyist political forum in Cape Town. The signposts Jaffe has pointed out in my opinion do not reflect the situation as it really hoesa during the period Jaffe cited the French revolution where the peasants had seized the manorial estates, during the uprising and thereafter were granted title deeds.


Tax records show that conversions were slow. Society consisted of social classes between which there were irreconcilable differences.

About the Author

Inwhen the letter was written the existence of races was not seriously contested. The movement did what none of the other organisations thought important or even necessary, which ohsea to explain the nature of their oppression to ordinary working hosra. From this base Jaffe attacked the federal structure of the movement and proposed a unitary structure, which was narrowly rejected in before he departed from the country. This we interpreted as a pro-middle class step.

The structure was considered to be invulnerable to the attacks of the state machine. There had only been one lecture, and the more pointed criticism, that the oral delivery differed substantially from the published one.

For someone who was so integrally involved hosra the split, he certainly is economical with the truth. One could skip the bourgeois stage and go straight to socialism.

The early fifties was a period of enormous intellectual ferment. Prior to the banning of Ben Kies in Jaffe had kept his views on the three pillar federal structure of the movement relatively low-key.

The clarion call of Apartheid by the Malanites found the majority of the White population rapturously responsive. What on the other hand has been researched is the fact that Turkish rule did not force Christians to become Muslims.
