Barrow Pushers at Warwick Market…

12 July 2009

…a new target in the Ethekwini`s war on the market`s informal workers and traders who oppose demolition of the market, were told that they could not enter the market unless they had permits. They refused as they had never had permits before as service providers in the market. The Metro Police blocked their entry into the market. The right of the barrow pushers to continue to work in the market until the end of the month, when the market is to demolished to make way for a R400m mall, was restored in a successful application to the court by Legal Resources Centre on July 11th.
