Landless People’s Movement Press Statement
27 May 2009

The Landless People’s Movement in Gauteng will march from the Maurice Issacs High School to the Hector Peterson Museum in Soweto on the 16th June 2009 to repoliticise the meaning of the 1976 Soweto Uprisings.

We, as the Landless People’s Movement, met with different social movements in Gauteng on 18 May 2009. Decisions were taken that the march should be done as a coalition, under the banner of the Poor People’s Alliance. We took this decision as we are trying not to own this march as the LPM. We are trying to revive the history of 1976. As part of this we will be holding workshops with the youth communities in Soweto.
