<nettime> [Mute-announce] REMINDER - Mute Talks - Richard Pithouse - Tonight


THE SHACKS FIGHT BACK:
THE SHACK DWELLERS MOVEMENT IN SOUTH AFRICA

7pm, Thursday 7th June, Centerprise, 136 =96 138 Kingsland High Street, =

Dalston, London E8

A talk by Richard Pithouse of the South African shack dwellers movement, =

Abahlali baseMjondolo

http://www.abahlali.org/

Abahlali have fought for the right of Durban's shack dwellers to basic
amenities - housing, water, land. This democratic grassroots movement
has confronted the lies and evasions of local government and aid
agencies to show that real participatory democracy is possible: when it
is organised by and for the dispossessed.

Richard Pithouse, an academic and journalist who has been active in the
movement since its inception, will talk about the struggle, show some
short videos, and answer questions.

We hope that the parallels between Abahlali's struggle and
that of Londoners who face the decay and privatisation of their services =

will become clear. This is an opportunity to make connections and find =

inspiration.
