The Rally that was held at VE informal settlement on the 25th September 2010 by Abahlali baseMjondolo of the Western Cape resolved that the last week of October 2010 which is the 25th October till 29th October must be a week of informal settlement strike through out the country.
Immediately after that call, the residents of TR informal settlement took to the street where they closed Mew Way road with burning tyres, rubbish and stones.
Today after 5th day of continuous action of TR section residents, one of other Abahlali baseMjondolo community i.e. RR also took to the street where they also closed Lansdowne road (just opposite the Mew Hall) with burning tyres, rubbish and stones as well.
As Abahlali baseMjondolo of the Western Cape, we are immediately calling upon all communities that affiliates to the movement and to those informal settlement that does not affiliate to the movement from Khayelitsha and through out the City of Cape Town to immediately took to the street with immediate effect and we are saying instead of calling the last week of October as a week of informal settlement strike lets us declare the month of October as a Month of informal settlement strike.
We call up on informal settlement through out the City of Cape Town to take to the street and barricade, let us make the whole City of Cape Town ungovernable, and let us create chaos through out the City.
Let us expose the fail or of corrupt DA and ANC led government to provide services for people residing within informal settlement.
Power to all informal settlement residents. We are saying umanyano ngamandla. Unity is Power
