SAFTU demands reversal of historic land dispossessions

Published on

SAFTU took to Twitter to demand the expropriation of land from agribusiness and mining houses without compensation, calling for it to be allocated to women and the youth.

The South African Federation of Trade Unions (SAFTU) took to Twitter on Wednesday, 18 November 2020, to detail its land demands. The post called for the expropriation of land, specifically from agribusiness and mining houses. According to SAFTU, the expropriation should occur without compensation to the aforementioned groups.

SAFTU stated, “Reverse historic land dispossessions and looting by settler-colonialists through expropriation without compensation, giving communities – especially women and the youth – the best land to use themselves and their future generations.”

The expropriation of land has been a topical matter in recent years, especially with various entities calling for the expropriation of land without compensation. However, the suggestion of expropriating agricultural land remains contentious, considering the value that agriculture brings and its contribution to the economy.
