PROTEST DAY ONE
Last week Abahlali baseMjondolo Western Cape made a call to MEC for human settlement M.R Bonginkosi Madikizela to sign an undertaking that he will never, ever again within the Western Cape Province demolish or evict people without any order from the court.
This follows number of illegal activities and intimidation carried by his office lead by him. ABM WC gave him seven working days to respond, and as an organization we were only expecting him to sign an undertaking that says he will not demolish people’s structures without following legal rout and a failure to sign such undertaking it simply shows that he is arrogant and thinks that he is above the law.
Now as an organization we have decided to go ahead with our campaign to call on his immediate resignation, and as from tomorrow we are going to make sure that every day there is a protest lead by different communities to call on him to resign.
Tomorrow: Mandela Park back yard dwellers will lead our first protest to call on Madikizela to sign an undertaking or resign.
Tomorrow the 13th APRIL 2011, ABM WC will protest in front of his office, calling on him to resign and the first community to protest is Mandela Park backyard dwellers
TIME: 10: AM TILL 12:PM
THE PROTEST WILL START@ KAIZERNGRACHT STREET, CAPE TOWN. (NEXT TO CAPE PENINSULA UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY)
