SERI Research Report available: Protection against Eviction

This user-friendly guide explains the rights of farm dwellers and the law in relation to evictions from farmland, and gives advice on how farm dwellers can navigate the legal processes involved in eviction proceedings and practically resist evictions.

The report acts as a resource for farm dwellers facing eviction from their homes, as well as for farm worker unions, community-based paralegals and lawyers. The guide was developed by SERI and the Commercial Stevedoring Agricultural and Allied Workers Union (CSAAWU), and was written by Tim Fish Hodgson and Dasantha Pillay.
