Our social movement was formed in 2016, since then we have achieved a lot in the struggle for affordable housing in the inner-city and well-located areas.
Today we have 5 occupations and more than 1 500 people have access to the city. We have been able to redress some of the apartheid spatial planning in Cape Town.
As we host comrades around Cape Town and the rest of South Africa in our second annual congress we continue to reaffirm that we will continue to fight for affordable housing for the poor and working-class people.
This video takes us through some of Reclaim the City’s first moments and its current state.
Our long term goal is to try to change the political discourse so that residents understand what the problem is and see our vision of an inclusive spatially just city as the new normal and achievable rather than something we can only dream of.
Land for people, NOT for profit!
