Back in the day, I was a founder member of the Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF) in Gauteng in 2000. The APF was born of a merger of the Wits University Crisis Committee (fighting neo-liberal campus restructuring at the University of the Witwatersrand) and the Anti-Igoli Forum (fighting neo-liberal municipal reforms in Greater Johannesburg). It included unions (initially), left groups and (comprising the great bulk of its affiliates), township groups fighting against electricity and water cut-offs, evictions, housing shortages, awful sanitation and infrastructure. I ended up a Media Officer, and one of my responsibilities was the production of statements, analyses … and editing and producing the short-lived APF paper, the Anti-Privatisation Monitor. Below are the two issues that appeared:
