I move without notice:
That the House -
1) notes the expulsion of the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa from the Congress of South African Trade Unions, which has led to the disintegration of the historic trade union movement and thus the unity of the organised workers;
2) further notes that it is a matter of historic fact that Numsa was part of the founding union of Cosatu which emerged out of the Durban strike of 1973, that is, Fosatu, which became Cosatu in 1985;
3) acknowledges that Numsa remains part of the unions which have managed to defend the interests of the workers as encapsulated in the Workers Charter and the Freedom Charter;
4) further acknowledges that the reason that Numsa has been expelled is its rejection of the ANC as a neoliberal, comprador, nationalist bourgeois party with no interest in the working class and the poor;
5) recognises that all this division and disintegration of Cosatu is to be blamed on the ANC, including the fact that nine unions have now disowned Cosatu;
6) concedes that this means that the ANC is killing the single biggest union of the organised working class, simply because it opposed it with its neoliberal, murderous policies;
7) declares that the less said about the SACP, the better, because they have become a nonentity and irrelevant in South African politics, especially in defending the workers and the poor;
8) further declares that the SACP have become the enemy of the poor;
9) encourages Numsa, together with the other unions, to take revolutionary strength from the experience of the EFF, that indeed only outside the ANC alliance can a genuine working-class revolution be realised; and
10) concludes that the EFF has proved that it is warm outside the ANC, and that winter has now entered the ANC alliance.
Order! Is there any objection to the motion without notice? [Interjections.] There is an objection. [Interjections.]
Speaker, I don't have any objection. It is just that phrase. Could she read that phase again? I don't know what it means at all. [Laughter.] [Interjections.]
In light of the objection, the motion may not be proceeded with. The motion without notice therefore becomes a notice of motion.
