Lesson from Sarita-
“Allow those most effected to lead their own campaign”
Sarita talking about the ‘symbolic occupation’ of the Cissie Gool house that has now became a permanent home for many residents’ within Woodstock.
Sarita Pillay is Deputy Head of the Organising Team at NU.
We first met her in October 2016 in Cape Town, South Africa.
Sarita was tasked with and played a vital role in organising the residents who we joined in their occupation of a site known as Woodstock Hospital. The residents renamed it Cissie Gool House.
