Private security have come to E Block, Khayelitsha, Khayelitsha (near Lingelethu SAPS) to illegally evict families.
For the community, this is the last straw. They have responded by taking to the streets and occupying the roads – even burning tyres to make a point. They are trying to remove the security guards from the community and restore the homes to the hands of the rightfull occupants.
The Western Cape Anti-Eviction is on scene supporting the community.
There will be an update tonight on these evictions as well as the skyrocketing number of evictions taking place all over Cape Town within the past week.
A luta continua! Power to the poor people!
