Posición de los movimientos sociales centroamericanos ante el fracaso de la VII Ronda de negociación
Las organizaciones populares y movimientos sociales centroamericanos reunidos en Tegucigalpa, Honduras continuamos expresando nuestra oposición al libre comercio, en el marco de la VII Ronda de Negociación del Acuerdo de Asociación entre la Unión Europea y Centroamérica (AdA). 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.

This morning, Wednesday 25th March, the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) in Bloemfontein handed down its judgment in the years-long Phiri water case. The judgment was the result of an appeal by the City of Johannesburg/Johannesburg Water (hereafter, 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

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. 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. They wanted to burn his house down but the RYN intervened and managed to calm the situation. The angry crowd left Thulani’s house in peace but promised to put more pressure on the police to ensure a fair trial. ... read full story / add a comment

The Coalition Against Water Privatisation and the SA Municipal Workers Union are participating in the alternative People's Forum
At 9.30 this morning (19 March 2009), a group of about 300 Turkish and international activists began a peaceful march towards the entrance of the 5th World Water Forum in Beyoglu to express their concerns about the political agenda of the event and prevent people getting inside. Turkish police forces, outnumbering by far protesters, quickly intervened and charged, using rubber bullets, separating Turkish activists from international protesters and violently dispersing the action. ... read full story / add a comment

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

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.

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

As the country waits anxiously for a probe into the arms deal, the African National Congress (ANC) government has approved a whopping R7.3 billion for the Lesotho Highlands Dam Phase 2. Water Affairs and Forestry Minister Lindiwe Hendricks, made the announcement after a cabinet briefing last Thursday. The government claims that the second phase of the Lesotho Highlands scheme will ensure water security for industry and consumers. During the struggle against apartheid, it was the African National Congress that launched a halt on the construction of Katse Dam. By 1996, at the same time as the ANC was adopting GEAR, the ANC-led government approved the project. The World Bank (WB) had already agreed in 1991 to finance this phase of the multi–dam water transfer scheme with a $110-million loan for the Katse Dam. The WB loaned a further $45-million for the completion of the first phase. ... read full story / add a comment
