Mr Monopoly à la conquête du Cap! - NdifunaUkwazi
You simply can’t make it up. In the midst of a housing crisis in our City, entrenched segregation and spatial injustice, post-apartheid forced removals and state led evictions, devastating gentrification, a student uprising and a nationwide call for transformation of white capital - Monopoly decides to launch a Cape Town edition!
Here your generic #white international venture #capitalist is roaming the streets, demonstrating our Big 7. It illustrates, a now common sense logic, welcomed by the current City administration that both public and private homes and land are commodities to be sold and accumulated.
Mr Monopoly has already walked all over De Waterkant which is now dead for 9 months of the year, sold to tourists. He is nearly done with Bo-Kaap, though he may be in for a fight still. He is currently evicting across the central CBD, Woodstock and Salt River to make way for his friends.
Forward to urban land justice, forward!
