In December 2021, campaign partner, APCOF crafted an OP-Ed in South Africa’s Daily Maverick entitled ‘City of Cape Town’s ‘broken windows’ policy demands more than a criminal justice response’, in response to the City of Cape Town’s highly controversial “deliberate decision to fine the homeless”. The article makes explicit the urgency required to replace criminalisation with rights-based alternatives already contained within existing laws and policies.
