Diepsloot

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

Ask most people about Diepsloot and they will talk of vigilante justice, political unrest, poverty and unemployment, a scene of recent political protests and xenophobic violence, a haven for criminals and undocumented foreigners in the middle of one of the country's wealthiest areas. Diepsloot is a microcosm - a post-apartheid settlement with about 250,000 crammed into five square miles, with more than its fair share of youth, foreigners and unemployed - a way of understanding the politics of this country on the ground, a place which presents so many of the questions facing this country. Why are people still living under these conditions? Why are the local politicians tearing each other apart? How do people survive? Do they still believe in democracy? This title takes you inside, walking the streets, meeting the people, probing the bitter local political battles, and asking what and area like Diepsloot portends for the future of South Africa. These are the stories not being told, these are the voices not being heard and these are the insights you can't get from parliament or Luthuli House.
