ACT Ubumbano Learning Hub #3
Solidarity as facilitation – Giving voice to people’s struggles!
Today, ACT Ubumbano is hosting the 3rd in a series of Learning Hubs to reflect on our practice of organising, solidarity and resistance against injustice. Using the Pine Road victory in Cape Town as a case study, the session will examine the complex set of skills, strategies and experience needed to facilitate change and to consolidate the gains that our activism brings.
The Pine Road community in inner-city Cape Town has been neglected for more than two decades and has faced numerous attempts by the municipality to forcibly remove them to locations far away from their lives, history and livelihoods. The Development Action Group (DAG), acting in solidarity with this community, facilitated a set of processes and engagements which supported the people affected to actively engage the City of Cape Town to develop an appropriate solution to meet their housing needs.
The Learning Hubs are designed to facilitate deep reflection and learning among community activists, and so participant numbers are kept small. Today’s session is already fully subscribed, but you can apply for forthcoming Hubs here.
Organisations and activists are invited to contact us if you have work you would like to be profiled and shared as a learning resource with others.
