Abhalali baseMjondolo Non-Elective Annual General Meeting
Abahlali baseMjondolo Movement SA will be holding its Annual General Meeting tomorrow at the St. Paul's Church (Rubin Hall) in central Durban. The meeting will begin at 10:00pm tomorrow and finish after 2:00pm. The elective AGM will be held in October this year.
All branches and affiliated settlements in good standing have been invited to elect and mandate representatives to attend this meeting. Those representatives will then report back to the next meetings of their branches and affiliated settlements.
This meeting will give our membership an opportunity to discuss the state of the movement and the challenges we face, to reflect on how we are doing in dealing with those challenges and to make sure that the elected leadership is held accountable in an open public discussion. We will be able to deliberate on our strengths, challenges, threats and opportunities. The living politic and ubuhlalism will also be discussed.
We remain committed to our politic of dignity. Our movement struggles for a future world in which every one must count - a world in which land, wealth and the right to speak, to be heard and to decide together is shared fairly. But our movement also insists that it is necessary, right now, to organise and to think and be together in struggle in such a way that everyone counts. The struggle is for dignity and it is founded on dignity.
