Reclaim the City is a movement of tenants and workers campaigning to stop our displacement from well-located areas and secure access to decent affordable housing. We believe it is time to take the struggle for housing to the centre of the city, to the heart of power, to the people who should live there, and to the land that matters. Land for people, not profit!
Reclaim the City members want to build an inclusive spatially just city. We are campaigning for the redistribution of empty and underutilised public land to poor and working class people. We provide support and solidarity to our members who are struggling with landlords and being evicted into homelessness. We believe they can be no just eviction in a housing crisis and we will give advice, defend and resist unjust evictions in the courts and on the streets. We provide the only temporary accommodation for evictees and homeless people at Ahmed Kathrada House and Cissie Gool House.
