Victory in Court!

On Friday, beginning at around 10 am, the notorious Security Management Unit illegally, brutally and violently evicted more than 40 families in the Barcelona 2 ‘transit camp’. The eviction was carried out until 1 am in the morning on Saturday. A number of people were wounded during the attack.

This morning Abahlali baseMjondolo went to court in defence of our members. We defeated the eThekwini Municipality in court. The movement has obtained a spoilation order to reinstate our members who have been illegally evicted by the Municipality. The court ordered that those who were illegally evicted in Barcelona 2 must be reinstated, and that the municipality does not carry out any further evictions in the area
