A Conversation with Abahlali BaseMjondolo – 29 April 2010

Is Abahlali baseMjondolo a threat to national security and peace, or a grassroots movement seeking the basics for survival and social justice?
What exactly happened on 26 September 2009 in Kennedy Road?
What are the implications of this event to our democracy and good governance?
