  The book, The Land Is Ours, written by Advocate Tembeka Ngcukaitobi tells the story of South Africa's first black lawyers, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. "THIS LAND IS OURS!' THE SHAPING OF XHOSA RESISTANCE TO EUROPEAN EXPANSION ALONG THE CAPE COLONY'S EASTERN FRONTIER, By Robert S. Ehlers, Jr. December Chairman: R. Hunt Davis, Jr. Major Department: History The Author: Robert S Ehlers.

  The Land Is Ours tells the story of South Africa’s first black lawyers, who operated in the late nineteenth and early twentieth an age of aggressive colonial expansion, land dispossession and forced labour, these men believed in a constitutional system that respected individual rights and freedoms, and they used the law as an instrument against injustice. The Land is Ours is a British land rights campaign advocating access to the land, its resources, and the planning processes set up in by George Monbiot and others.. Their first campaign was the occupation of the disused Wisley Airfield in Surrey by people in , from which there was a live broadcast on the BBC's Newsnight programme. Nearby St. George's Hill is symbolically.

  “Etymology is destiny,” Suketu Mehta writes in “This Land Is Our Land: An Immigrant’s Manifesto,” his searing new book about migration past and present. The Land Is Ours shows how these lawyers developed the concept of a Bill of Rights, which is now an international norm. Amid current suspicion of the Constitution and its protection of individual rights, the book clearly demonstrates that, from the beginning, the struggle for freedom was based on the ideas of constitutionalism and the rule of law.
