The LPM is organising a march from 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. This march is a response to the ANC’s hijacking of the 16th June as they have turned it into a bourgeois event. We as the LPM believe we should not celebrate this day, as our government does, but commemorate it by reflecting on the struggle for the liberation of the youth that is still being fought for by poor communities 15 years into our so-called democracy.. We would like to invite all the civic organisations and social movements, regardless of their political affiliation, to be part of this march. read full story / add a comment

On the 26th March, the day before we, the LPM youth, were to have our march to demand that our councilor step down, the JMPD prohibited us. The reasons the police gave for this were that we are violent and unruly and that they “know” us. They referred to a march organised by the Gauteng LPM that happened in 2002 when we refused to leave Mbaziama Shilowa’s office. This march, we explained, was not organised by the youth. Regardless, they said they didn’t have the time and manpower to plan a safe and peaceful march and that if we carried out the march, they would be “hard” on us. We took this to mean that they would arrest us over the weekend and also brutalise us by beating us and shooting us with rubber bullets. The government will not meet with us, and now we believe they are even working with the police to suppress our right to express ourselves openly by marching. There is a real problem in our democracy when the government and the police have time to suppress and brutalise us, but not to help us publicly express the demands that we feel will improve our futures. read full story / add a comment

The Landless People's Movement (LPM) in Protea South is thankful for all the support that organisations and individuals have provided over the past week especially as we seek to revive the LPM across Gauteng and hopefully reunite it with the landless people in South Africa and around the world. Your solidarity has given us strength and encouragement and we are as determined as ever to push forward the struggle of the poor in our battle against injustice. No amount of threats by the government, the police or by individuals will stop us from fighting for our rights. read full story / add a comment

Over the years we, the Protea South branch of the Landless People's Movement, have marched many times and we have been arrested, beaten and tortured. Tomorrow will meet the City of Johannesburg in the High Court.
Our demands to the court are the same demands that we have taken to the streets: read full story / add a comment
