The Western Cape High Court is hearing arguments over the protection of the Liesbeek River.

Amazon had disregarded a provincial heritage council ruling that earmarked the area for protection investigations.

The company went ahead with construction of its new headquarters on the historic and culturally significant land.

But the property is significant to the Khoi community, as it’s the first site of their resistance to colonialists.

High commissioner of the Goringhaicona Khoi Khoin Indigenous Traditional Council, Tauriq Jenkins, says that the environmental significance of this land must also be protected.

The urgent interdict is to be heard by the high court over the next three days.
