It has been six days since the occupiers of Arcadia Place were evicted and living on the streets outside the building in Observatory.
Widespread protests for land and housing are taking place with backyarders and landless people occupying vacant land in Cape Town.

A group of backyarders in Gugulethu began to occupy vacant land in the township last week and started erecting shacks. By Sunday, the protestors had barricaded the busiest routes in the township, demanding to speak to the Mayor about housing delivery.
