LPM Protea South Press Release
The Protea South Branch of the Landless People's Movement Has Won a Breakthrough Court Order Against the City of Johannesburg
Since 2003 the Landless People's Movement in the Protea South shack settlement in Soweto has been trying, without success, to engage the City of Johannesburg around the future of the settlement. The Protea South LPM branch has clear demands:
1. There must be no evictions.
2. Every effort must be made to build houses for the people in Protea South.
3. If it is genuinely not possible to build houses for all residents in Protea South then discussions must be held to find the closest possible alternative site.
