Tents In Anti-Eviction Section Of Delft Removed

DA and police remove tents in Anti-Eviction section of Delft, leave their own tents standing

Delft, Cape Town - The Democratic Alliance (DA) controlled City of Cape Town along with scores of heavily armed police have just stolen four large tents donated by Islamic Relief to the homeless, evicted people of Delft, who are currently sleeping outside on Symphony Way.

The DA City of Cape Town claims that these tents are a "fire hazard".

However, just metres away in the DA Councillor Frank Martin controlled section of Symphony Way, the City has actually provided the same kind of tents for the people. Needless to say, these "fire hazards" have been left standing by the DA.

The Anti-Eviction Campaign is deeply angered. These four tents were supposed to be used for the children to play in, and in case of rain.

This is a good example of how all the political parties are totally against the poor. The ANC said last week that it completely supported the eviction of the Delft residents from the houses they had occupied, even though it knew that these vulnerable people had nowhere to return to.

The DA, who supported the occupation, is now using the police to repress the majority of the Delft residents who have rejected their racist, self-promoting DA Councillor. The DA is now trying to starve these residents into submission by blocking food aid to them and exposing their small babies and children to the elements by removing their tents. However, there are no signs that the residents are willing or interested in giving up their peoples' power to be used as pawns by the DA.
