On Sunday, 24 June 2018, SERI was invited by the South African National Civic Organisation (SANCO) to give a presentation on housing and evictions law to the organisation’s branch HODs of Housing. The workshop forms part of SANCO’s strategic vision and programme to prevent evictions in the City of Johannesburg.
SERI presented on resisting evictions and legal principles contained in the Constitution. The presentation provided participants with insight on how to use the Constitution and legislation such as the Prevention of Illegal Eviction from and Unlawful Occupation of Land Act ("PIE Act") to challenge illegal evictions. The presentation was offered by SERI research and advocacy officer, Edward Molopi.
