An architectural complex in some ways shocking, combining a red-brick building that had housed a drum factory since the s — well proportioned, in the style of British factories — with three huge and unconventional concrete towers connected by aerial walkways.

Support for Comrade Jacob Zuma 5. The Recall of President Thabo Mbeki 7. Walking Through the Open Doors 7. Comrade Violet was a good example of the shop floor based and shop-stewards activism that has characterised COSATU for more than two decades. In honour of this fine comrade, the movement must continue to be rooted in the workers at the shop floor, in the mines, factories and public services.
Shop-floor activism and internal dynamic participation by all the structures is the only guarantee of the movement's survival. Further, we acknowledge the many members and leaders that have laid down their lives in service of the movement and the cause it is fighting for.
These comrades are the bedrock and lifeblood of the Federation; and continue to work tirelessly, often without reward, to continue the struggles of the workers.
It is for this reason, that your efforts must be acknowledged. COSATU is a movement of ordinary working men and women that have joined together to fight for a better life for the workers in the thousands of workplaces across the country.
COSATU members also understand that workplace struggles are integrally linked to community and the broader struggle for social transformation. Hence, they form the backbone of our allied formations, the leading formation of our national democratic revolution, ANC and the vanguard of the South African working class, the SACP.
Introduction The task of the political report to the Congress is two-fold. First, it must provide a political analysis of the domestic and global situation; identify opportunities and challenges; and assess the strengths and weaknesses of the forces fighting for change.
The second task of the report is give feedback to delegates on what actions were taken to implement the mandate of the previous Congress, i. For that reason, the Political Report is divided into two parts, reflecting on the broad strategic challenges facing the democratic movement, and a report to delegates and members on the execution of the mandate.
The political report is obviously tabled in a different context than the one that prevailed at the 8th National Congress: The changes it has proposed are still at an early stage, but mark a decisive landmark in the post history of the ANC; The subsequent formation of an opportunist splinter group which, in its bid to steal the legacy of our National Democratic Revolution, calls itself the Congress of the People; The historic fourth democratic general elections that took place on April 22, Regular elections are important sign of the health and maturity of democracy.
The elections affirmed South Africa's march towards a free, united, democratic, non-racial and non-sexist South Africa. This year also marked also the 15th Anniversary of the democratic breakthrough.
The tumultuous economic developments at a global and national level. The world is still struggling to shake off the massive impact on jobs, livelihoods, national economies and financial markets unleashed by the global economic crisis. The effects are still working their way in the South African economy and have prompted a national response involving government, labour and business to address the ramifications of the global economic crisis.
The question facing us as delegates is what has changed since the previous time we met? The dominant theme of this report is to provide an answer to this question.
There is no doubt that there has been significant change since the last Congress. Before, reflecting on what the post-Polokwane moment represent, the report briefly recalls the mood and context of the previous Congress.The first instalment launched at the Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast on the 3rd August and focused on Wilson’s more recent practice.
The second instalment, at the Millennium Court Art Centre, Portadown, 6th October – 22nd November , features examples of work dating back to the early s.
