Anti-Privatisation Monitor;
Description: The first newsletter of the Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF) was published in September 2000. Not long after its formation, the APF decided that it needed to have a public ‘voice’ in the form of a regular newsletter in order to record and publicise its views/positions, various community and other struggles as well as provide a forum for activist opinion. This was the first four page newsletter produced by the APF’s media sub-committee in September 2000 under the name ‘APF Monitor’ – with the main features being coverage of the electricity struggles in Soweto and the City of Johannesburg’s pro-privatisation IGOLI2002 plan. As the APF grew, so too did the size/length of the newsletter as well as the number of copies printed. Over the ten years of the APF’s existence the newsletter (always produced by the media sub-committee) came out on average, twice a year with the average number of copies for each edition being in the region of 2-3000. The name eventually changed to ‘Struggle Continues” as the 16 page August 2006 edition shows (this particular edition providing good coverage of the various elements of the APF’s approach to and struggles around education - see B10.2.
