Durbans Corruptions & Disruptions

Brutus protesting against Mike Sutcliffe at Warwick Junction Early Morning Market, 2009

Our goal is to disrupt the corrupt. Dennis Brutus, who died in 2009 after living most of his last five years in Durban, would look down on our city centre from Musgrave’s western heights and pass harsh judgment on a political transition that replaced racial with class apartheid, on a sports tourism paradise replete with SA’s most extreme eco-social contradictions, and on redevelopment that further squeezes and pollutes the poors.
