After a community meeting that was held yesterday, 19th March, by the residents of Sebokeng Zone 20 called by the Radical Youth Network (RYN), the police again arrested a community member Malefafane “Search” Letsele.

As a single mother of five and a prominent activist who has come under threat by the police, government and now even the middle-class in her own community, Maureen Msisi asks for solidarity and advice to give her more courage to push forward the struggle of the poor. This is not the first time that Maureen’s life and family has been in danger because of her campaigns for the interests of poor people. In 1995, Maureen formed the branch of the ANC in Protea South hoping it would bring about a change that would better our lives. But members of the local civic at the time felt that she was challenging their power and they responded violently by attacking her. She was shot in the back and stabbed 3 times with a machete, breaking her leg and scarring her neck and hand. Almost 15 years into our new democracy, she continues struggling for the same changes in the lives of her people in Protea South, but now under the banner of the LPM. Today, she fears that if she continues on with the struggle, her life and her children’s futures will be in danger. ... read full story / add a comment

Helen Zille and the City of Cape Town need to stop trying to score cheap political/elections propaganda points and be honest with the people of Cape Town (see press statement of City of Cape Town below). The so-called ‘water management devices’ are simply pre-paid meters in drag. Like the pre-paid meters which have been declared unconstitutional and illegal by the Johannesburg High Court, these devices dispense the 6000 ‘free’ litres per month/per household and then automatically cut off. ... read full story / add a comment

Last week the ANC-run Emfuleni Municipality, together with its water utility - Metsi A Lekoa - called a community mass meeting at Kwa Masiza hostel in Sebokeng. Residents came in their droves thinking that an announcement would finally be made about kick-starting the municipality’s long awaited water provision project for the hostel. Instead, local ANC councillor M. Maqutyana and municipal official responsible for water and sanitation, Jonny Thabane told residents that even those residents who are accessing municipally-supplied piped water must “conserve’ that water and not use more than 25 litres of water per person/per day. When residents protested, they told them to vote for the ANC again (for a fourth time) if they wanted to have long-term and sustainable access to water. ... read full story / add a comment

On November 2008, the Emfuleni Mayor, Mr. Mushutudu addressed angry residents of Kwamasiza who have been without water and sanitation for the past seven years. The mayor, like many others promised that first thing as soon as his office opens, there will be different contractors working in the area and that Kwa-masiza hostel will be his priority this year. When he was told by members of the CAWP that this is just one of those false promises, he guaranteed residents that they will see change this year.

The Soweto Concerned Residents (SCR) held a community mass meeting in Orlando East at the A.M.E church to discuss the 2009 national elections and the state of the poor working class in the country. The meeting is normally attended by elderly pensioners and unemployed residents who are receiving various state support grants, many of whom were in the forefront of the struggle against apartheid. The meeting took a resolution to go and pay R5.00 zonke for basic services to their ward councillor, Ruby Mathang, on the 21st January 2009 at his office. This is a defiance campaign against market related charges for basic services for the poor and unemployed. ... read full story / add a comment

"As anarchists, we felt we should support a fellow human victimized by blind violence," an organization calling itself Anarchist Initiative said in a statement sent to Eleftherotypia daily. ... read full story / add a comment

Since November last year, the Coalition Against Water Privatisation (CAWP) has heard complaints from residents of Kliptown that the City has been sending many people statements saying they should pay for services to avoid cut-offs or face legal action. These are the very same people who do not have running water or taps in their yards but make use of communal taps and at the same time use paraffin to cook. All 7 people who came to report this matter to the CAWP said that they owe the City R194. Is this a flat rate or a coincidence based on estimations? ... read full story / add a comment

In this film, shot in the vast shack settlements in and around Durban, members of Abahlali baseMjondolo, the grassroots shackdwellers' movement, lay out their case – against forcible eviction and for decent services – with passion, eloquence, and sweet reason. The film captures the horrible conditions in which shackdwellers live – but it also captures Abahlali's bravery and resilience, in a political climate where grassroots campaigners like them are more likely to be met with rubber bullets than with offers to talk. ... read full story / add a comment
