We Call on TAC Comrades to Stop Making Divisive Statements and Accusation of ABM WC

The Treatment Action Campaign, Social Justice Coalition and Equal Education have accused Abahlali baseMjondolo in the Western Cape of promoting violence and disrupting their meetings.

I would like to make it clear that Abahlali baseMjondolo does not condone violence, meaning harm to persons. Our week of action in October was a strike by shack dwellers, by means of direct action common to protests in other countries.

Moreover the accusation that we have disrupted meetings of these organizations is a complete falsehood. Those responsible for disrupting the Irene Grootboom lecture by Comrade Vavi in Site B, and those who disrupted a more recent meeting, are associated with the ANC Youth League in Khayelitsha and not with Abahlali baseMjondolo.

We ask these organizations to stop making divisive statements and to publicly withdraw their accusations.

Mzonke Poni,
Abahlali baseMjondolo (Western Cape)
