From Shacks to the Constitutional Court

On May 14, Abahlali baseMjondolo traveled from the shacks of Durban to South Africa’s Constitutional Court in Johannesburg. In a landmark case they argued that a provincial law known as the ‘Slums Act’ violates the constitution. They were joined at the court by the Anti-Eviction Campaign, the Landless Peoples Movement, the Rural Network and AbM Western Cape.

This is a mobile update from Christopher Nizza and Dara Kell, who are in South Africa on their first production shoot for the feature documentary film ‘Dear Mandela’.
