Source: HIC-GS

Habitat International Coalition (HIC) received very disturbing information about permanent attack by authorities and structures of the ruling ANC against Abahlali baseMjondolo (AbM).

We are very concerned about the treatment of shack dwellers from the Kennedy Road settlement in Durban by the regional authorities.


We strongly support the demand of Abahlali baseMjondolo for an independent commission of inquiry and that the judicial process should be halted until such an enquiry has been conducted.

We also demand that the right to free association in Kennedy Road must be immediately defended by the police and that all political organizations must be allowed to operate freely in the settlement.
