It is most likely that on Tuesday October 14th there will be an eviction wave. Pretoriusstraat 28, where Joe’s Garage is located, will then be evicted.
The building that offers housing to 7 people, 3 cats and the neighborhood Social Center Joe’s Garage, will then be turned over to a group of speculators that don’t have any link with the neighborhood and and are only after financial gain.
The inhabitants of the building and the Social Centers volunteers however, have a very strong link with the Transvaal neighborhood and are not willing to let that go. Joe’s Garage is determined to assume its role towards the neighbors until the very last moment.
Thats why on Saturday October 11th the free shop will be open as usual from 14.00-18.00 and the restaurant will serve food on Monday October 13th as of 19.00
