Where: Cape High Court
When: First thing in the morning

Abahlali baseMjondolo of the Western Cape will be approaching the Cape High Court first thing this morning to secure an urgent interdict against unlawful and criminal evictions by the City of Cape Town in the case of Macassar Village.Macassar Village backyarders have been made homeless by the extremely high rents that they are charged to erect shacks in other people’s backyards. For the past week, homeless residents have been occupying an empty piece of land owned by the City of Cape Town with the intention of housing them and their families.

Land is the building block of any healthy and sustainable community. We are merely fighting for our own livelihoods which have been denied to us by past governments and this current government.
