Fighting to preserve the Liesbeek Black River Confluence

The proposed development is destructive, non consultative, and without consideration of the unique heritage and environmental importance of the Two Rivers Convergence

Who We Are

Here at Liesbeek Action Campaign, we are driven by a single goal; to preserve this unique area of vital historic and environmental significance. Our decision-making process is informed by comprehensive empirical studies and collaborative partnerships with all stakeholders.

With your help, we are fighting to prevent the destruction of this vital site

Why it's Important

The confluence of the Liesbeek and Black Rivers is sacred land. It is a lynch pin for the green corridor of Cape Town, sensitive indigenous plant and animal life. It is a site of memory for the First Nation community and all of South Africa - associated with Khoi ritual and resistance since 1510. 

 

The approval process was flawed on heritage, environmental & legal grounds
