At 3AM, two bakkies travel towards the affluent suburb of Newlands. In the back, packed next to each other, are several members of the People’s Housing Movement. They’ve come to occupy the vacant land, which belongs to the government, partly to finally get a roof over their heads, but also to draw attention to the lack of housing in the City of Cape Town. If they can last for a full 48 hours, they can’t be evicted by law, and the city will have to seek a court order to throw them out. Despite all being part of the same movement, the comrades have little in common, and some even have their own personal baggage that makes working together difficult.
