invite you to the


Water Rights Webinar Series

Expropriation as a tool: the Marikana experience

The Marikana informal settlement in Cape Town is home to over 60 000 people.  For years, the residents of Marikana have persistently and innovatively engaged in a diversity of strategies to improve their living conditions. These strategies have included community mobilisation, engagement with the authorities, protest, self-supply, and ultimately, precedent-setting litigation in the Fischer case which is the first case in South Africa to examine the possibilities of expropriation in terms of the Housing Act. The lessons which might be learned from the experiences of the residents of Marikana are documented in the SERI’s ‘Claiming Water Rights in South Africa’ research project, as one of four case studies.

When:  Tuesday, 6 October 2020; 10h30-12h00 via Zoom

Who:    Mandisa Dyantyi (Social Justice Coalition); Marikana community member (TBC); Thulani Nkosi (SERI);  Sipho Kings (Mail & Guardian); and Thato Masiangoako (Facilitator, SERI).
