    Well, if she was deported you could have had a campaign. Admitting that you have done something illegal (particularly when it appears you have not) is not normal in any situation.

    So you have launched an international campaign on the basis of what some media source has speculated might happen? Things must be slow in trotsville.

    A bit late to start a campaign when the act of victimisation has already happened - it is much easier to stop the victimisation before it has happened rather than reverse it when it has.

    Then again - history has shown that you tend to be late for everything - so its not surprising you adopt this approach.

    As an aside - you really should feel some twang on your on your conscience - attempting to exploit the victimisation of a socialist activist to satisfy your continuous efforts at trolling.

    My conscience is completely clear. You have no reason to be concerned.

    Liv Shange is due to return to South Africa at 13h20 on Sunday 14th July, 2013 together with her three children. The South African Embassy in Sweden has invited her to apply afresh for a spousal visa. This appears to aid and abet the false claim by the Department of Home Affairs that they have no record of her spousal visa, despite the fact it was first issued to her as long ago as 2007 and re-issued in 2009. The SA embassy further argues that as it is holiday time in Sweden, the application will take up to three weeks. Liv has no choice but to return to the country as the children have to return to school on the 15th July. Apart from the possible consequences of the children not being able to resume their schooling on time, the financial implications of not being able to travel on the date their ticket are booked, are significant. Liv Shange has not committed any crime and all complications at the side of the Department of Home Affairs are there fault.

    Liv Shange has arrived back in South Africa.

    Before the weekend the Dept of Home Affairs offered a compromise where the said that Liv could reapply for her spousal visa and return to South Africa when it was granted. The campaign to grant Live re-admission to South Africa and Liv arrived at OR Tambo airport as scheduled on Sunday in defiance of an order from the ANC government. Dozens of members of the Workers and Socialist Party were at the airport for her arrival and the authorities did an about turn and allowed he to re-enter the country on a temporary three month visitor's permit while she applies for a spousal visa. Members of the Amplats mine workers committee hoisted her up on their shoulders and led her out of the airport.

    Speaking to those who had supported her at the airport she thanked the campaign of WASP and international solidarity for forcing the ANC government to back down. The attack on Liv Shange was not an isolated act. There is a low intensity civil war going on in the mines including suspension of shop stewards, harassment of trade union activists and court proceedings against trade unions. Additionally the expulsion of the Tlokwe ANC Councillors who ousted a corrupt major shows how the ANC government deals with political opponents inside and outside the ANC. This defeat of the repression against Liv Shange is a victory for everybody facing repression in the country.
