The Western Cape Anti-Eviction Campaign (AEC) is expected to appear at the Cape High Court this morning, where they will apply for (what the call) an “urgent interdict against unlawful and criminal evictions by the City of Cape Town in the case of Macassar Village”.
The AEC says that since being evicted from their previous dwelling, homeless Macassar Village residents have been staying on a vacant piece of land owned by the City.
“Land is the building block of any healthy and sustainable community,” said the AEC.
The AEC says that they will fight for their livelihoods which have been denied to them.
