Blikkiesdorp photo gallery

Symphony Way - the central site of resistence to forced removal to Blikkiesdorp

Blikkiesdorp (i.e. 'tin can town) is one of a number of 'Temporary Relocation Areas', concentration camps, set up to house the urban poor in Cape Town. There are similar abominations in Johannesburg and Durban. This photo gallery has some pictures of Blikkiesdorp as well as the Symphony Way Occupation - which held out against eviction to Blikkiesdorp for many months before being defeated.

This is horrible, and also why 'District 9' was a great movie. Had it involved actual people though, it probably would have received very little interest.
