  • Abahlali baseMjondolo PressThe notorious Michael Sutcliffe continues to launch illegal attacks on our basic democratic rights
    high price for our rights When we ask for what is promised to all citizens we are attacked driven from our homes slandered beaten tortured and jailed A simple procedure like arranging a legal march becomes a complicated game that takes all of our time and energies Now it is clear that we will have to go to court to ask a judge to defend our basic rights against Sutcliffe We are briefing a lawyer right now But why do we have to pay such a high price to realise our basic rights The only logical answer seems to be that these rights are no longer intended for us that we are the people that don t count and who must be silent as we are driven out of the cities When the media first reported on Sutcliffe s illegal ban of our march the police spokesperson said that all marches would be banned due to the World Cup If it is true that our basic democratic rights are being removed as a result of the World Cup then we say very clearly that the World Cup is a new kind of colonialism that every person who is right in their mind must reject and resist with all their force in their mind and in their muscles Sutcliffe insults Human Rights Day he insults our democracy and he insults Pixley KaSeme and the memory of the struggle for our democracy when he bans us from marching down Pixley KaSeme Street and taking our anger to its rightful home the City Hall on the national public holiday to celebrate Human Rights Day We strongly recommend that journalists and the police familiarise themselves with the legislation governing the right to march The system whereby permits had to be granted for marches to be legal was struck off the statute book in 1993 These permits have had no basis in law since then And the Gatherings Act prohibits the authorities from imposing unreasonable conditions on our right to protest Our right to protest is not negotiable There is a good summary of the Gatherings Act available online at http fxi org za PDFs Publications RGAHandbook pdf For further information and up the minute updates on the legal battle to have Sutcliffe s attack on our basic democratic rights overturned please contact S bu Zikode Abahlali baseMjondolo President 083 547 0474 Troy Morrow Chairperson of the Abahlali baseMjondolo Hillary Branch 071 511 8446 Zodwa Nsibande Abahlali baseMjondolo General Secretary 082 830 2707 Uyishayile To view the short video by Umhlanga Rocks on the September 2009 attack on Abahlali baseMjondolo in the Kennedy Road settlement visit http www youtube com watch v 8gQv19cD4Y Abahlali baseMjondolo together with with Landless People s Movement Gauteng the Rural Network KwaZulu Natal and the Western Cape Anti Eviction Campaign is part of the Poor People s Alliance a national network of democratic membership based poor people s movements Western Cape Anti Eviction Campaign http antieviction org za To contact

  • International Women`s Day Workshop on Counting the Costs of FIFA World Cup to Informal Economy Women.
    that recognises that attention needs to be paid to informal economy development instead of treating the informal economy as a nuisance We have and continue to contribute to both the local and national economy We call for our rights as women workers to be respected as our rights to livelihood are stated very clearly in the Constitution and for which we have struggled side by side with men for political as well as economic liberation We demand that the city look at possible ways for more land to made available for markets to be developed to increase opportunities for street and market women vendors and for the existing markets to receive the attention they deserve and their policies to be brought in line with the policies affecting hawkers and street traders as it is the same sector Policies for social protection infrastructure and services for the informal economy are a priority in order for the needs of the informal economy to be taken out of the periphery and moved into the mainstream We demand that the city returns its attention to the rights based development policy and to abandon the policing approach where women street and market traders and hawkers are harassed and abused by the police and that a moratorium is put on any plans to which we have not agreed and for which no proper alternatives have been discussed We demand that the Municipality develops a proactive approach to fight xenophobia before during and after the World cup as this seems to be completely lacking We demand that at least a Xenophobia Hotline be linked to the existing Women and Children Trafficking toll free number that is still to be widely popularised throughout the municipality We demand that special attention be given to women living with disability with regards to developing opportunities that will use their skills and knowledge Compiled by the WCCA Task Team from presentations and testimonies from the workshop posted 19 March 2010 World Class Cities for All Brazil Portuguese Blog There is also a portuguese version of the Blog where one can access personal updates on news and events It can be found on this link http streetnetbrasil wordpress com Latest Additions Cambodian Trade Unions oppose adoption of a new Trade Union Law Online crowd funding a new experiment of StreetNet International StreetNet affiliate from Azerbaijan helps street vendors in villages and promotes ILO Recommendation 204 Free Trade Unions of Ukraine marked a World Day for Decent Work Nothing for us Without Us NewsBox INDIA DP is irreparable scrap it say activists Times of India 10 April 2015 TANZANIA College plans to identify trade opportunities for hawkers Daily News 10 April 2015 by Ludovick Kazoka INDIA No street vendors cycle rickshaws in Lajpat Nagar market NGT Zee News 8 April 2015 by PTI New Delhi BOTSWANA EDD is the way to go Mmegi Online 8 April 2015 USA Five Courses Hawkers street food flair more Creative Loafing Tampa Bay 8 April 2015 by Meaghan
