Anti-Eviction Campaign Marches Again

On Thursday 13 May, around 100 members of the Anti-Eviction Campaign (AEC), supported by people from the Anti-Privatisation Forum and the Anti-War Campaign amongst others, marched in Cape Town to Parliament in order to present a memorandum of grievances and demands to the newly inaugurated Minister of Housing, Lindiwe Sisulu. The march was precipitated by the news that the Senior Public Prosecutor plans to evict 6 000 residents of Khayelitsha from their homes over the next few weeks, a very short period after the electioneering ANC had promised an end to evictions.

The demands of the Anti-Eviction Campaign are:

- Housing subsidies for all without further delay
- An end to all evictions
- Drop the charges laid against anti-eviction activists
- Government must reclaim the land in Mandela Park, Khayelitsha, that was sold out to banks
- An urgent meeting between all the stakeholders in the struggle over evictions must urgently be held

A representative from the housing minister’s office accepted the memorandum on her behalf and promised to get back to the Anti-Eviction Campaign in the near future.
