Photographer's Note

I introduced you to the Afrikaanderwijk in my last upload, we'll continue our walk. This street and its adjacent streets are destined to be pulled down, the streetartists have taken over and made the decrepit buildings a canvas for their work. There are still 45 inhabited homes. This couple have been fighting to stay for over three years, the poster on their doorway reads: "We are fine living here. Don't pull us down. We want to stay" . I stood and spoke with them for some time, and although I sympathise with their plight I do not think they will win to stay, but hopefully be moved to an affordable area that is not on the list to be pulled down in the next five years.
