How to support Abahlali Shackdwellers after recent muderous attacks

02-10-2009 18:41

Update from Kennedy Road by Abahlali_3 on Thu, 2009-10-01 in Kennedy Road

Friends and comrades, the movement is still under attack in Kennedy Road and the police are still failing to protect us. The settlement is now run by the chairperson of the local ANC branch, Jackson Gumede, and his armed mob. Gumede is asking people to show ANC cards. Senior people in the ANC and the police continue to offer open and public support for the attacks. None of the people that attacked us and destroyed our homes have been arrested. Many of us are still sleeping in the bush and in the streets. There has been another death in hospital. Our members from across 34 settlements in Durban, and some from other settlements as far away as Cape Town, will soon meet in a secret location. We will formulate a plan of action and draft and issue a full and official press statement.

Abahlali baseMjondolo, the Shackdwellers Movement
Here are some good links and statements about last weekend's murderous attacks on the Durban-based grassroots struggle Abahlali, the Shack Dwellers Movement. There was a small picket held in solidarity with Abahlali yesterday (Wednesday) outside the South African Embassy in London called by the London Coalition Against Poverty and other supporters. LCAP has only recently hosted two meetings by Abahlali activists who came to discuss and seek support for the movement and so these horrific attacks are particularly poignant.

Guinea: Bloody Repression Kills Dozens of anti-Junta Protesters

29-09-2009 02:47

Today opposition and labor protesters descended from the main boulevards of the city to the national stadium ("Stade du 28 Septembre"), but were met with a ban order, lines of troops, live fire, and rumors that the military is disappearing captives and bodies of the dead. As many as 80 bodies have been rumored to have been laid out in the stadium itself. If anything like the events of 2007 reoccur, the military would be willing to continue this crackdown for weeks or even months.
