More than 20,000 people are threatened by farm evictions in the Western Cape. Farm dwellers will picket outside the final public hearings to be held in Cape Town to call on President Ramaphosa to keep a promise he made in Paarl in 2014: that there will be a moratorium, an immediate ban on legal and illegal farm evictions.
