The ANC persists in amending the Constitution to enable it to expropriate any property without compensation.
The parliamentary ad hoc committee on amending section 25 of the Constitution to allow for expropriation without compensation accepted its report this month. The next step is for parliament to consider the amendment bill and committee report.
AfriForum has already submitted its commentary, in which it unequivocally rejects the bill in its entirety. Expropriation without compensation will have a detrimental effect on the economy. It is not only about land: The proposed amendments make it clear that the state will be able to expropriate any kind of property.
The fight against expropriation without compensation continues and AfriForum needs your support to give our opposition of this destructive policy even more momentum. Give us your mandate to continue the fight:

The public has until 31 January 2020 to comment on the Bill.
It seems that the government wants to push through the process while the public’s attention is focused on the festive season.
AfriForum has already brought a court application to have the process to amend the Constitution that was until now followed by the Parliamentary Committee declared invalid because of procedural irregularities. AfriForum will also submit comprehensive commentary on the Bill and continue its legal battle against expropriation without compensation in 2020.
However, we need your help!
It is not necessary for you comment on all the details of the Bill. All you have to do, is to add your voice to AfriForum’s objection against the Bill. Until now, AfriForum has been the most important role-player in giving the public a voice to take a stand against expropriation without compensation. We plan on continuing the fight in greater numbers.
IMPORTANT: If you have already added your name to the campaign, please do so again. The previous petition was against the irregularities in the public participation process. AfriForum is already involved in a legal battle in this regard. This time, however, the petition is not about the public participation process, but against the Bill that has been published to amend the right to private property in the Constitution.
Do not let the ANC and this government push this matter through over the festive season. Help AfriForum to stop this constitutional amendment!
Add your name to AfriForum’s action against amending the Constitution!
