In December last year, the ANC adopted a policy favouring land expropriation without compensation. The issue is being discussed in Parliament and increasingly South Africans are polarised along traditional Apartheid lines with white commercial farmers, traditional leaders, parties claiming to represent landless black people and other racialised groups jostling to be heard above the throng. Meanwhile, not much attention has been given to working class interests and whether the urban and rural poor are likely to benefit from land reforms, whether for housing or for subsistence farming. In this week’s Workers on Wednesday, we consider what interest workers may have in going back to the land.
