On Friday 17th April, the legal team in the years-long Phiri water case filed an application for leave to appeal to the Constitutional Court. The application is to appeal the judgment handed down on 25th March 2009, by the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) in Bloemfontein. The SCA judgment was the result of an appeal by the City of Johannesburg/ Johannesburg Water (the ‘City’) and the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) of the previous ruling of the Johannesburg High Court in April 2008, which declared that prepaid water meters were both illegal and unconstitutional and ordered the City to provide residents with 50 litres of free water per day. ... read full story / add a comment

Vemos como la crisis global tiene un impacto directo que sigue profundizando las condiciones de pobreza, exclusión, discriminación y marginación de nuestros pueblos, que se ha venido agravando con la entrada en vigencia del TLC con Estados Unidos y que nos ha hecho más dependientes de la economía de ese país, lo que provoca una mayor vulnerabilidad económica y pérdida de soberanía como pueblos y como región centroamericana.

He was arrested for an incident that happened on the 17th March 2009, when members of the community visited the house of the Community Police Forum (CPF) patrol officer, Thulani Bam, who arrested was arrested (and given free bail) for the murder of a community member Teboho Tsotetsi.

On Friday, the Kliptown 5 were sentenced in the Protea Magistrates Court following their previous conviction on charges of “public violence”. Handing down very harsh sentences, the magistrate made her intent very clear: the defendants must be deterred from participating in any future protest action. Four of the five – comrades Charlie, Sibongile, Ricardo and Oscar – were sentenced to 2 years in prison, or a R3000 fine each, both suspended for 5 years. The fifth defendant, comrade Thabo, was sentenced to 2 years in prison suspended for 3 years or a R3000 fine (payable immediately). ... 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

On the 03rd September 2007 more than twenty comrades were arrested in community protests organized by the Anti Privatisation Forum against the slow or non-delivery of services in Soweto (Kliptown and Protea South). Fourteen comrades were arrested in Protea South though only four of those charged were taken to the Protea Magistrate’s court on the 4th of September 2007 and the others were released after being held captive for more than 24 hours without any charges being laid. In Kliptown, twelve comrades were arrested for public violence including five juveniles (underage, school-going children) and have been appearing in court since September 2007. After more than twenty appearances and almost two years, five were found guilty of public violence yet the community was arrested for demanding housing. ... 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

In its historic judgement handed down on the 30th April 2008, the Johannesburg High Court declared prepaid water meters both illegal and unconstitutional and ordered the City of Johannesburg (CoJ) to provide residents with 50 litres of free water per person/per day . Despite the judgement being celebrated by poor communities across South Africa and supported by a wide range of domestic and international unions, political parties and non-governmental organisations, Johannesburg Mayor, Amos Masondo – alongside Johannesburg Water and the Department of Water Affairs & Forestry (DWAF) – appealed the judgement. More recently, the National Treasury has applied to be an amicus in support of the appeal. And so, now into its sixth year, this landmark case to secure basic constitutional rights to water for all, heads to the SCA. ... read full story / add a comment

Old skeletons are trembling in their closets as the traditional weapons of South African political play are sharpened at this time of elections. The split in the ruling party has done little to pacify the grudge match between the IFP and the ANC in Nongoma in KwaZulu-Natal. Instead, Cope's emergence has opened another front for beatings and intimidation between the sparring partners. Cope members in East London have been left to wonder "if the ANC is declaring war on us." And amongst the APF's own affiliates, the office of the Kliptown Concerned Residents was broken into. Electioneering material for the organisation's 28 January by-election campaign in the ward were removed by unknown 'comrade tsotsis.' ... read full story / add a comment

No one could predict that the joint camp in Masha 12 years ago of Israeli and Palestinian activists will ignite a wide movement of a joint non armed struggle which the Israeli occupying system will fail to extinguish. The thousands of activities and the tens of thousands of participates were not expected. Many small victories and the international B.D.S. warm the hearts of the not too many who persist in the joint struggle in spite of the mourning of those killed, empathy with the injured and solidarity with those arrested. The strong bond of partnership between the Palestinian activists and the Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall initiative was surprising. Disappointing but not surprising is the way the people of the Israeli anarchist scene refrained from adopting the initiative as the main recruiting mission. Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Ma'asara, Nebi Saleh, and Qaddum are still holding high the banner.

28 de agosto de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

"Há uma evidente confluência de ideias-guia entre os que defendem o impeachment nas ruas (os grupos neoliberais) e os políticos de tradição oligárquica no Congresso Nacional. É por isso que no atual momento o povo perde de todos os lados. Seja pela direita que é governo, com o tucano e Chicago Boy Joaquim Levy à frente da pasta do Ministério da Fazenda (o mais importante dos ministérios); seja pela Agenda Brasil e a “salvação” do governo implicando em abrir mão de quase tudo para manter o mandato; seja pela oposição política formal que sem nenhum pudor apresenta um projeto entreguista de exploração de petróleo como o do senador José Serra (PSDB-SP), e na ponta direita da política, o povo brasileiro corre sério risco se as ideias reacionárias expressas nas ruas de 16 de agosto se tornarem realidade em alguma proporção. Logo, há muito mais em jogo do que a continuidade institucional a qualquer custo", constata Bruno Lima Rocha, professor de ciência política e de relações internacionais.

Over the Last 12 months, particularly since Christmas the housing and homeless problem has deepened significantly. From last summer the amounts of families’ registering as homeless went from 264 to now, which are 531. The number of families that are registered as being in need of emergency accommodation is 792 adults with 1,112 dependent children. These statics were issued by the Dublin Regional Homeless Executive. This is a 100% rise within 12 months, but yet the state has not come out and said there is a crisis in housing.

Those in power don’t want to confront the status quo of hatred against immigrants, or South Africa’s imperialist role in the region. They have a narrow set of interests: getting votes, accumulating wealth and power. However, the recent wave of attacks on immigrants and the ruptures of relations with other African countries – especially where South African corporations are operating – have touched the most delicate nerves of the established political powers, who have vowed to advance corporate interests in making profits.
