This matter involves a challenge by, amongst others, the movement #ReclaimTheCity against a decision by provincial and city officials to sell publicly-owned land to a private school in the prime area of Sea Point.

#ReclaimTheCity argue that the relevant government officials have acted unlawfully by failing to redress spatial apartheid in the City of Cape Town.

As a friend of the Court, Equal Education’s submissions highlights the need for government, at all levels, to recognise the interrelated nature of socio-economic rights, and the link between spatial justice and education justice.

Current Status: Judgment was granted on 31 August 2020 in favour of the Applicants
