Alexandra residents refuse to back down


    The Alex Shutdown Movement held a meeting on Thursday night after houses were demolished last week.

    The movement is threatening to shut down Sandton and disrupt businesses.

    One the Alexandra resident said that they are planning to reclaim their dignity by occupying the land as it was donated for the people of Alexandra since 1912.

    “We are going to occupy the land, we are going to disturb capital in Sandton City to say you’re making of us, importing labour and there is nothing you are bringing back to us as a community,”.
