Community struggles

But of course there is also struggle. The current struggles take the form of legal challenges to the evictions and cut-offs; forming community organisations and linking with other groups from other areas; ‘emergency’ reconnections by ‘struggle electricians’ and ‘struggle plumbers’; mass actions against evictions; demonstrations at and occupations of the houses of the councillors and officers responsible for the decisions; disconnecting the water and electricity of these officers; land invasions and workplace strikes that involved the whole community.
