Africa: Deliberately Excluded, Deliberately Oppressed

Africa: Deliberately Excluded, Deliberately Oppressed - Sokari Ekine highlights attempts to 'turn the forgotten people into the deliberately excluded and deliberately oppressed people' with Abahlali baseMjondolo's challenge of controversial legislation on slums in South Africa. Political patronage machines, the pope's views on condoms, and the forthcoming Wiwa vs Shell trial are among the other topics in Ekine's round-up of recent blog posts on Africa. [AA Urbanisation]
