Amazon’s Liesbeek development: Preserving ‘the Place of the Stars’ from corporate plunder

This week the Goringhaicona Khoi Khoi Traditional Indigenous Council and Observatory Civic Association went to court to prevent the destruction of the intangible heritage of the Liesbeek Riverine Valley and the environmental harms inherent in this development. They have 56,000 supporters on their petition website, more than 60 organisations backing Heritage Grading for the Two Rivers Urban Park, and support from multiple professionals who argue the development is contrary to all planning, environmental and heritage considerations.
