A bit of follow-up on the post I made on shackdwellers attacked by a mob in South Africa. Many are still in hiding, and the vibrant movement that was built by South Africa’s poorest people has been damaged. But they’re still organising, democratically, for change. If you’d like to support them, the South Africa Development Fund is collecting checks. Please mark them ‘for Abahlali’, and send em to
South Africa Development Fund

In the UK, War on Want supports Abahlali’s work, and you can find out more here.
