  • Durban - WCCA Campaign calls for City to stop dividing traders
    eThekwini municipality and that they have given their report of their findings and recommendations on a way forward However the non co operation with this process and recommendations given that we have noticed on the part of the eThekwini Municipality is threatening the success of this initiative by the Provincial government and causing a major and dangerous division within the street vendors This is observed through a programme of action that was discussed during the Unicity Informal Sector Forum meeting held recently against other traders who do not support Warwick development in the way the City has planned We urge the national government to bring the eThekwini municipality and other local government authorities to account as we have these concerns eThekwini Municipality seems to have totally ignored all recommendations of the Provincial Task Team stated in its report for an example the re instatement of the so called illegal traders and consultation process with all Warwick stakeholders The eThekwini Municipality seems to be pouring money and other resources into the Unicity Informal Sector Forum supporting all their activities aimed to intimidate and agitate the other street vendors thus causing a HUGE divide between street vendors with a potential of causing endless violence between them For example the planned march for the 14 October 2009 and other demonstrations throughout the month of October The City has supported these activities by printing pamphlets and distributing them using City resources and officials This is a clear abuse of public resources and a democratic structure where all informal traders need to be equally represented The mismanagement of public funds such as rentals paid for tents on which the Early Morning Market traders were going to be moved to and have been sitting vacant for over 6 months We call for the following The head of the Business Support Unit Phillip Sithole to be removed from this position with immediate effect as he has shown to be working against the broader interests and rights of the informal traders sector The eThekwini Municipality must account for all resources and money used in the Warwick development project The head of the Provincial Task Team Mr Mike Mabuyakhulu to address informal traders and give them a status report The renegade SANCO who have been seen to be working very closely with the City to stop supporting developments that were introduced to informal traders without any consultations and have no benefit to them Phumzile Xulu On behalf of WCCA campaign task team WCCA campaign task team co ordinator Durban StreetNet International Tel 031 307 4038 StreetNet 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

  • Durban: Street Vendors` Protest Letter to eThekwini Municipality
    confirm that no recognized approaches have been made to any of our trader organizations or their members Of further concern is that although the suspicion exists that the development is imminent it is only now that the preparatory activity appears to be increasing precisely at the busiest time for traders and then their customary annual leave for the early weeks of January We believe this is inconsiderate and that if substantial decisions are deliberately taken over this period which prejudices the involvement and the futures of the traders it can only be seen as having been implemented in bad faith We the undersigned believe that an agreed and transparent process must be urgently established to dispel our fears that the traders of Warwick Junction are being ignored and that the development will be proceeding regardless of our opinion or preferences We have become accustomed to a local authority that values respectful community participation Yours faithfully Jabulani Ntsele Chairperson The Eye Traders Association Sisonke Alliance Tel 073 4961670 Gaby Bikombo Siyagunda Association Sisonke Alliance Tel 073 2570686 Mzwandile Mayula ACHIB Tel 082 9604256 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
