The Final Call: Mandela, America, Israel and systems of oppression

(FinalCall.com) - In the 23 years since Nelson Mandela walked from his notorious Robben Island prison cell, leaving behind the rotting corpse of South Africa's system of racial and economic oppression known as apartheid, a new generation has grown into adulthood there, literally unaware of the cruel exploitation and indignities the tiny White minority population inflicted on the masses of that country's people.

"Apartheid, like Jim Crow and slavery, were essentially economic systems," Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the online, "Pan African Newswire" told
The Final Call. "The reason why you had such repression against the people of South Africa is because they constituted the majority inside their own country, and they were sitting on top of some of the most valuable resources in the world, i.e. gold, diamonds, platinum, and other strategic minerals that were essential to the world's capitalist system.
  
The U.S., Israel and the United Kingdom were the apartheid government's chief clients and collaborators. 

"When we hear today, all of these accolades about Nelson Mandela, they don't mention that it was the American CIA which was instrumental in his capture in 1962 and they had never recognized the ANC all the way up, really until 1990 after the release of Mandela when it became obvious that they had to normalize relations."
