Housing for the Urban Poor
From Local Action to Global Networks

November 19 – 20, 2012, Visit by Abahlali baseMjondolo

Abahlali baseMjondolo is a right-based social movement of shack dwellers from Durban, South Africa. Their litigations in the housing field have created much attention as they have managed to defend the right to housing and prevent unconstitutional eviction legislation to pass. The Urban Management Programme and Habitat Unit at TU Berlin show “Dear Mandela”, the new and multiple-award winning movie about AbM. Muziwakhe Mdlalose and Thembani Ngongoma of Abahlali are visiting Berlin during the time and we accompany them and use the unique opportunity for discussion and reflection on social movements in housing in South Africa.
