About the Book
Today, more than four hundred years later, despite the advent of the new democratically elected government and the introduction of a series of land reform laws, landlessness, forced removals and evictions continue unabated. The continuing struggles for land takes place in the context of a land reform programme that is being implemented by the new government. This booklet summarises the process of land reform that was underway at the time of publication (2000). Its aim is to inform and equip activists who are involved in the struggle for land, by giving an overview of the land reform programme and make these programmes more accessible by summarising, simplifying where possible, and consolidating them.
