The Homemade Politics of Abahlali baseMjondolo, South Africa’s Shack Dweller Movement

Abahlali baseMjondolo protest against assassinations - 8 October 2018

S'bu Zikode interviewed by Vijay Prashad.

The shack-dwellers’ movement– Abahlali baseMjondolo, or AbM— is among the organizations of the world’s poor and dispossessed fighting for land reform and dignity. Despite waves of repression by the state, AbM membership now numbers over 50,000 in settlements across the country since their founding in 2005. In an interview with Tricontinental Institute, Zikode talks about the essence of AbM—what they are fighting for, who they are, what they have achieved, and what we can learn from them.
