The Homeless targeted - for what they don’t have.


Imagine being homeless and jobless with your family in a country which guarantees you, through its Constitution, the right to dignity, food, shelter, security, education etc and you can’t get access to any of these inalienable right. Your continued poverty is a nuisance to the affluence of the bureaucracy who is supposed to provide you with services to mitigate your poverty. You can’t afford education. You can’t afford housing. You can’t afford food to feed your family. You are on Council housing lists for decades. You migrated to the Western Cape and you can’t access any services.


And then imagine that same government punishes you for not being able to access those inalienable rights.

Clifton's Sheep in Wolves' Clothes

Kleurlinge... yes that is the only way I feel like describing these adherents of a false consciousness... Kleurlinge losing their minds over a sheep being slaughtered on a beach which they themselves as people are regularly being bullied to vacate and until a few decades ago were not even allowed the privilege to visit or set foot on.

In what seems to have become a cruel pattern in Cape Town, the evictions of large numbers of people take place in the coldest months of winter and in virtually all those cases, the City of Cape Town's Metropolitan Municipality in some or other manner, to some degree, happens to be a stakeholder.

Cape Town’s largest social housing project, Steen Villa which has 700 Units, developed by SOHCO Property Investments, a Social Housing NGO on land leased from the City of Cape Town for R150 per annum.

With almost every other film made on the Cape Flats that end up showing at mainstream cinemas, there is almost always a negative backlash and usually it's even before anyone who is complaining had actually seen it.
Nommer 37 is no different in that there is already a backlash from people who have most certainly not yet seen the film which opens at cinemas on Friday 1 June 2018.

Equally ridiculed and celebrated in our communities for their perceived flamboyance, while also in many straight circles accepted with a bit of confused caution, almost everyone on the Cape Flats knows someone who is stereotypically described as a "Kaapse Moffie" but seldom the stories of transgender persons are told from the point of view of and as the main character in a theatrical play.
The transgender persons in most theatre works are usually cast as secondary characters and many times as comic relief, but the plays usually do not revolve around them.

Jan van Riebeeck - UNPLUGGED

For many years in our youth under the shadow of Apartheid 6th April was a public holiday called Van Riebeeck’s Day or Founder’s Day... BUT who was the real van Riebeeck?
 Those who place Jan van Riebeeck on a pedestal elevating him to playing a much larger and benevolent role in our past than is factual, and who project him as a fair and blameless man, are often rather ignorant of the bigger picture that make up this man’s life. Few people can present an actual biography of this man and few people have read his detailed journal and his letters from the Cape. In fact his present day supporters are much less honest about what happened, than Jan van Riebeeck himself.
