Pavement dwellers' short trek to Blikkiesdorp

Dozens of families who had been living on a pavement along Symphony Way in Delft for nearly two years finally relented and moved to temporary relocation area, Blikkiesdorp in October 2009 after the City of Cape Town secured an eviction order.

Our Word is Our Weapon

While the city of Cape Town intimidates residents with shotguns and tank-like vehicles, the people of Symphony Way respond with their words - and a round of applause.

Promised housing by the South African government, more than 100 Cape Town families found community through their struggle as squatters on a sandy road known as Symphony Way. Community members reflect on that road in their past and on the road ahead.
