Nationalisation and the Freedom Charter

Ben Turok

Abstract


When the ANC talks about “nationalisation”, it is necessary to return to exactly what was said in the economic clause of the Freedom Charter. This article argues that a close reading reveals that what was meant had nothing to do with seizure of resources. It was all about sharing and recovery of resources that were lost due to colonial expropriation.
