Racist Magistrate’s Court evicts black family from own property

Racist Magistrate’s Court evicts black family from own property

A Magistrate’s Court in Cape Town has evicted a black family from its property and given it to a white racist. This is happening today in South Africa. It goes to show once more that blacks are not protected by law in this country. The courts side with whites to oppress black people.

The white man has been squatting at the property for almost a year without paying any rent and without a lease agreement. The owners, because they are black and have bought property in a white suburban area, are denied the right to occupy their own family home.

Black First Land First (BLF) condemns the decision of the magistrate to evict blacks from their own property and to hand it to a white squatter who has no right or permission to occupy the property.

COVID-19: BLF calls on Ramaphosa to stop the apartheid forced removals

COVID-19: BLF calls on Ramaphosa to stop the apartheid forced removals

The goverment of President Cyril Ramaphosa is using the lockdown of the country as a pretext to institute apartheid forced removals of the poor. The harassment of Abahlali baseMjondolo by the EThekwini Municipality with the assistance of the police and army is part of the grand plan to forcibly remove the poor from the cities during the lockdown.

The announcement by the Minister of Human Settlements, Water & Sanitation, Lindiwe Sisulu, for the “decongestion” of crowded spaces, is a code name for apartheid forced removals.

Black First Land First (BLF) calls on Ramaphosa to immediately stop all forced removals and evictions. To this end we call for the following:

1. A moratorium on all planned forced removals – apartheid forced removals must end.
2. A moratorium on all evictions including evictions from farms.
3. No one should be evicted for non payment of rentals during the lockdown.
4. Ramaphosa to immediately instruct the EThekwini Municipality to stop harassing Abahlali baseMjondol.
5. Provision of food parcels to the poor.
