Abahlali baseMjondolo & the Popular Struggle for the Right to the City in Durban, South Africa

Marina Urquidi ¤ 28 January 2014
Translations: English (original) .

First, if you are not familiar with dph (dialogues, proposals, stories for global citizenship), we hope you will be glad to learn of it. We have chosen for this issue from their database an experience report that highlights what we all know: that just abolishing Apartheid and instituting democracy is only a first step in the right direction, and that the road left to travel remains full of hardship, obstacles, and struggle for every man and woman’s rights. The theme here is one we have frequently pointed to: the right to the city in a rapidly urbanizing world generating masses of urban dwellers with no proper housing.
