Leader of the GOOD Party, Patricia de Lille, says she will continue to fight for the integration of the people of Cape Town who were forcibly removed from their areas under the apartheid government’s Group Areas Act.
She wrapped up her election campaign on an open piece of land in the CBD on Sunday.
De Lille says her fights with the Democratic Alliance (DA) started after it refused to support the idea of making the land available for suitable affordable housing. She says she will continue to fight against what she calls special injustice.
“We come here to illustrate what is possible, what can we do to integrate our City, I think as all leaders around the country have failed to integrate our Cities and towns and I just become more determined when I travel around the country in all provinces and see apartheid special planning is still alive and well,” says de Lille.
Today @ForGoodZA demonstrated how public land can be used to address spatial justice. We visited public land under the city’s control that @PatriciaDeLille & I wanted to use for integrated development with affordable housing but which @Our_DA block #WherePeopleLiveMatters pic.twitter.com/Pv9yrrCzXe
