Presenting the People’s Demands to the Political Parties

Abahlali baseMjondolo will be discussing the political, social and economic situation of the country leading up to the election on 29 May 2024 at our General Assembly on 7 April.

Since the first General Assembly of the year we have held an extensive process of meetings and discussions at all levels of our movement, and in all our 87 branches in good standing across the four provinces where we have members, to develop a collective strategy for the election.

The discussions in our monthly General Assemblies have all been open to the public and have been attended by representatives from a number of other membership based progressive organisations from South Africa, and elsewhere in the world. The process culminated in a three day camp for leaders from all provinces and has produced a set of People’s Demands.

We also held a successful voter registration drive with the aim of mobilising all of people who are coming from shack settlements, hostels and rural areas, including farm workers, to participate in the election, and to encourage our members to engage their families, neighbours and others on the importance of registering for the election in order to be able to deal a collective blow against the ANC.

We invite political parties to our General Assembly where we will be presenting The People’s Demands. However due to space constraints we cannot accommodate more than three representatives from each party.

The General Assembly will be held at 10:00am at the YMCA Hall, 29 Beatrice Street, Durban.
