Das Recht auf die Stadt…

Morgen beginnt die FussballWM in Suedafrika — einige von uns sind durchaus fussballbegeistert und nehmen auch an antinationalen und antirassistischen Fussballturnieren teil. Womit eigentlich schon genug zu den inter-nationalen und hochprofitorientierten Veranstaltungen wie FussballWM oder zuletzt europäisches Schlagerfuzziwettsingen gesagt ist.

Wie an einigen anderen Stellen schon gemeldet (s.a. den Hinweis auf den Film „Im Schatten des Tafelberges“) ist das Township „Sinfonieweg“ nahe des Flughafens in Kapstadt inzwischen so gut wie geräumt ---
nun beginnt parallel zur o.a FussballWM eine Kampagne der beiden Organisationen Abahlali base mjondolo und Anti Eviction Western Cape gegen diese und weitere Vertreibungen --- sie werden in die Stadt gehen, nach Kapstadt, leerstehende Räume wie Häuser, Hotels u.ä. besetzen --- sie werden gegen das Versammlungsgesetz verstossen, gegen das Eigentum und jede Menge anderer Gesetze, die nicht die ihrigen sind (und unsere auch nicht).

Wir veröffentlichen hier den Aufruf im Originaltext (englisch) und wollen versuchen in dieser Zeit weiter an Informationen zu kommen Amandla – awethu

Count Down

The Right to the City Campaign

Abahlali baseMjondolo of the Western Cape, 21 days ago launched it’s
campaign ‘the right to the city campaign’ today the world and South Africans
are counting few days before the kick off of the 2010 FiFa World cup, also
Abahlali baseMjondolo of the Western Cape is counting few hours before kick
starting it’s campaign.

Part of the aim of the campaign is to build shacks outside Green Point
soccer stadium at Cape Town, occupying governmental offices, invading open
public spaces within the city and occupying unused hotels, flats and schools
within the City.

Tomorrow, the 11th June 2010 is the first day of our campaign, about 100
members of Abahlali baseMjondolo will meet at Cape Town next to Cape
Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) at Keizerngracht Street at 10:00
from there we will proceed to where our protest is going to take place.

Our action in terms of South African gatherings Act is viewed as illegal, as
it suggest that we need to notify the police 14 days before such action but
according to us our action is genuine and legitimate and we see no reason
for us to notify them while we are going to occupy their offices because we
refused to be controlled in any way in our actions.

All media agencies are invited to expose the police and governmental
arrogance towards the poorest of the poor. We want the world to see how the
poor are denied the right to well located land by South African Government
and by the City of Toilets or the ‘Shit City’ (The City of Cape Town)
