THE MAKING OF MY OCTOPUS TEACHER by Sea Change Project

Fascinating beings

The ocean looked especially lively. White horses rode hard towards rocks while the occasional spindrift lifted towards the sky. It was one of those days when the South Easter howled down False Bay and anyone with even a modicum of common sense would not attempt a swim. However, there I was on my dec...

DEVELOPERS BLOK & PRIME PROPERTIES AND NORTON ROSE FULLBRIGHT SHOWS COMPLETE DISRESPECT TO BO KAAP COMMUNITY DURING MONTH OF RAMADAAN -
MEDIA RELEASE
13 May 2019
The Bo Kaap community is back in the Western Cape High Court this morning opposing the substitution of ownership of 40 Lion Street by BLOK properties ( SJJMC PROPERTIES PTY LTD ) to PRIME POINT PROPERTIES PTY LTD. BLOK served the application on the 6 May 2019, the first day of the holy month of Ramadaan and set the matter down for hearing on the 13 May 2019. The application was also brought on the eve of the Bo Kaap’s victory of having 19 sites declared as National Heritage sites by the National Department of Arts and Culture.
Jacky Poking, the secretary of the Bo Kaap Civic and Rate Payers Association ( BOCRA) , has been joined to the proceedings in her personal capacity and she will be opposing the application.
BLOK Properties is owned by Jacque Van Embden and Ronen Zekry bought 38 and 40 Lion Street for R55 million rand after the City of Cape Town unlawfully, illegally and unconstitutionally cancelled the reversionary rights on the properties. The City of Cape Town received approximately R13million for the lifting of the reversionary right. The Community submitted more than 500 objections to the City of Cape Town in respect of the development of the property in November 2017. Community protesting commenced in April 2018 and in June and subsequently November 2018, BLOK properties brought an interdict application against “all other persons causing obstructions, unlawfully conducting themselves or attempting to cause obstructions or unlawfully conduct themselves”.
The interdict application directly impacted on the peaceful protesting rights of the Bo Kaap Community, which caused the unlawful and unconstitutional violation of the protest rights of the Bo Kaap community by BLOK, SAPS and Metro Police and the City of Cape Town traffic department on the 20 November 2018. The Bo Kaap community opposed the interdict application and it will be heard on 18 June 2019. BLOK has also joined 10 individual protestors to the proceedings as a form of legal chicanery to intimidate and divide the community.
The joinder and substitution applications have also been brought against a backdrop of Civic Capture by developers. BLOK properties entered into a collaboration agreement with an organisation called the Bo Kaap Youth Movement (NPC) who is vigorously attempting to overthrow the legitimate leadership of the area. BLOK’s lawyers Norton Rose Full Bright provided legal assistance to BKYM in its attempts to capture the BOCRA. The Company with no prior Civic or Heritage experience, had also registered with the Western Cape Heritage Body as a heritage conservation body, which allows them to give comment on plans as it relates to heritage. BOCRA will be requesting Heritage WC to investigate their qualification as a conservation body. BOCRA will further be requesting SARS to investigate the sale of the property from BLOK to Prime Point Properties.

The Bo Kaap will remain resilient and steadfast in its fight against gentrification as the City of Cape Town and Developers attempt to purge the City of poor and working-class people. It will continue to oppose developers who have no regard for the heritage, culture and history of the area and whose only goal is to fill their capitalist pockets.
The struggle for land justice continues.

Milky Way over Lion's Head

This is a 12 image panorama of the milky way body over the iconic Lions Head in Cape Town, South Africa. I have been wanting to get this photo for a while now, but is only possible when the conditions are perfect due to the extreme light pollution from the city centre and surrounding suburbs. The perfect conditions require a new moon and low fog rolling over the city from the atlantic ocean to help reduce the light pollution so that the milky way is visible. I have attempted this shot several times which includes hiking part way up Table Mountain and more often then not just sitting in the fog. I finally managed to capture this photo at 5am yesterday morning just as the fog was starting to roll back out over the ocean. Bucket list photo for me :)

Place Of Sweet Waters

Place Of Sweet Waters

Cape Town is in the midst of its worst drought in recent history, yet millions of litres of naturally occurring fresh water run under the city's streets, to be dumped straight into the sea, every day. This award-winning film, directed by Sven Harding, aims to raise awareness of this criminally neglected, but desperately needed, historical resource, in the hope that it might be reclaimed to help sustain Cape Town's ever-growing and increasingly water-stressed population.
