Expropriation without compensation (EWC) is the most ominious reversal on the road to true liberation for black South Africans since apartheid.

It will deny the rights for which black South Africans fought and died.

Ironically, it will be the children of those perpetrating EWC today who will be affected for the next 100 years. Yet again, black people are and will continue to be the main victims.

Changing the Constitution to amend the property rights clause is not required or desirable and is dangerous in the long term.

Land reform is necessary – but this is not the way to do it.
Real property rights come with secure title deeds.

Terence Corrigan's talk will focus on the ideological and policy roots of EWC and the extensive impact that a sustained government drive to weaken private property rights and expanding state interference in the economy over the past decade have had on the South African economy - the implications of which go far beyond the agricultural sector.

Temba Nolutshungu will share his view that EWC is a betrayal of the struggle of black people. Secure property rights will be lost for generations. EWC will return South Africa back into the jaws of apartheid. Property deprivation has never ended since apartheid but continues on a massive scale for public purposes and affects almost exclusively black citizens.
