Since the re-emergence of the land question, Abahlali had to look deeper into how, as a movement, they will engage the debate with a deeper sense and also use their own experience. In doing so, they decided to make sure that the land question was on the agenda of each meeting that they held.
Meetings on the 5 March 2018 and 8 April 2018, all had the land question on the agenda and intensive discussions were had with the leadership as well as members of the movement.
A 2 day summit was held where ‘land’ was discussed. The summit took place at the Denis Hurley Centre on 14 & 15 April. All the branches in Durban, Eastern Cape, Volktrust andGauteng had representatives. At the end, they came up with a declaration on land which was made public at their Unfreedom Day event on 22 April 2018.
