A people’s plan to deal with crisis

2018-02-20 06:00

An alternative plan to manage the water resources in our land is being developed by the people of Manenberg.

The crisis has come about because we, as the indigenous people, have left decision-making in the hands of the government who only have the interest of the rich at heart. With this in mind we have commenced a process of consulting the with public meetings throughout Manenberg.

The purpose of the consultation is to:

. get the views of the people;

. bring together all the views;

. and, organise a march to the local municipal rent office tomorrow (21 February) at 10:00.

This process is part of restoring decision-making and placing it in the hands of our people. For too long we have been operating under a colonial construct in which decisions are made on our behalf.
