Khulumani responds to the misrepresentation of today’s march to Parliament by desperate pensioners from Nyanga Township, demanding restitution for homes that were demolished thirty years ago today, as an action driven by Khulumani Support Group

Today, a group of elderly pensioners from Nyanga township in Cape Town marched to Parliament in an attempt to draw attention to their demands for the restitution of their homes thirty years after they were demolished on 3 September 1984. Claims were made in the television footage screened by eTV that the group was comprised of Khulumani Support Group members. While Khulumani campaigns for these matters finally to be resolved fully and satisfactorily, we wish to clarify that the organization had nothing to do with the action that took place at Parliament today.

US District Court Judge Scheindlin dismisses the Apartheid Litigation on grounds that the recent narrowing of the scope of application of the Alien Tort Statute now prevents claims that involve foreign subsidiaries of American corporations

After twelve years of sustained advocacy towards ending the impunity of transnational companies for aiding and abetting the perpetration of gross human rights violations in South Africa, through their collaboration with and provision of military and other strategic equipment to the security agencies of the apartheid regime, the presiding judge, Shira Scheindlin has ruled that ATS jurisdiction following Kiobel II no longer extends “to claims involving foreign conduct by foreign subsidiaries of American corporations.” In the Khulumani case, all the conduct in question relates to conduct by subsidiaries of the American parent companies, Ford Motor Company and IBM.
