South Africa: Unprovoked police attack on the Good Hope Settlement in Germiston

Yesterday afternoon all the shacks on the Zikode Extension Land Occupation were demolished again. 

Tonight a large number of police officers, from various units, including a SWAT team, launched an unprovoked, violent and brutal attack on the nearby Good Hope Settlement in an attempt to prevent people from moving back to the occupied land. Rubber bullets were fired and tear gas was used. Individuals were targeted and threatened. There has been at least one confirmed arrest. 

This is an emergency statement. Events are still unfolding, the police are still occupying the settlement and people are currently scattered and in hiding. We have not been able to account for everyone or to hold a meeting. Full details will be available tomorrow morning when people have been able to regroup.

Today is day six of the occupation. The struggle for land and dignity continues.

Land & Dignity!
