On April 27, Abahlali baseMjondolo, the shack dwellers movement, organized an event called “Unfreedom Day” in rejection of what they call ‘fake freedom’. “Freedom Day” is a public holiday celebrated on 27 April in South Africa. Abahlali, which celebrated its 15 years last year, is the only movement formed in the post-apartheid era, organizing for land, housing and dignified living, to have survived and sustained itself for so many years.
