Background to Community House

Community House situated in Salt River, Cape Town is a unique and historic site of living heritage. It has always been known as a site of activism from around the mid 1980s which has shaped and continues to shape the socio-political landscape of its extended communities. The building itself houses NGO’s and Trade Unions as well as a labour and community history museum centered on the Trade Union Library and its archive. It presently houses twenty-four organizations that focus on labour research, popular education, gender advocacy, HIV/AIDS education, environmental issues, youth development, media production and union organization.

In the mid-1980s, anti-apartheid trade unions and civic and service organizations began searching for a new headquarters for their resistance campaign. The Western Province Council of Churches (WPCC) and an NGO, the Social Change Assistance Trust (SCAT) met this need. They purchased a dilapidated auto-workshop in Salt River, an area known for its textile and light metal factories and which marks the origins of industrial unions in the province.

The site was declared a provincial heritage site in 2010.

Feeling the spirit

10/06/2010

Salt River and Woodstock was abuzz yesterday as many people in South Africa took to the street to blow their vuvuzelas.

Bush Radio shares some of the concerns around the impact of the World Cup on the country, especially in the areas of human trafficking, moving of the homeless, risks to children because of the long holiday, and sex work, etc.

We addressed some of these issues directly with FIFA‘s Jerome Valcke and the Local Organising Committee’s Danny Jordaan when they visited the station and have continued to interact directly with other NGOs and social movements on-air through our programmes (eg Sakhisizwe).

However, yesterday was a celebration and we couldn’t help catching the spirit, and like we say at Bush Radio: “Instead of cursing the darkness, light a candle!”. Let’s celebrate what we can and work on what we must.

Catch Everyday People broadcasting live from the Swartklip Fanjol tomorrow from 15h00 – 19h00.
