This morning the Anti-eviction Campaign (AEC), together with the community of Symphony Way in Delft, made their way to Wale Street. There representatives met with MEC for housing to discuss the situation of the Symphony Way Pavement Dwellers. The AEC says that the department continued to make promises that it continued to break.

Families who have been living on the pavement for months fear that they will be evicted as soon as the elections are over.

Kareemah Linneveldt from the Delft AEC says that the community wants to know where they stand with the department.
“We’ve been in the struggle for 11 months now and we want to know what is going to happen from now on. The community will be standing outside in support,” said Linneveltd.
