Where are the hooligans when you need them

Squatters in Jo-burg will likely be evicted in a plan to clean up downtown in time for the 2010 Football World Cup, Reuters reports, via the Pakistani paper DAWN.

"City officials hope that by the time the world's gaze rests on Johannesburg for the 2010 World Cup, squats will have been replaced by upmarket loft apartments, smart delis and trendy boutiques."

Call it the globalization of desire. Even under ANC rule.
