Description: This picture of graffiti done by members of the Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF) community affiliate in Orange Farm appeared in October 2003 in The Star under the title "Are you listening?" The graffiti on the side of a shack captures the anger and frustration felt by so many poor communities at the lack of socio-economic development (basic services) since the fall of apartheid. It is a profound statement of desire and resistance, a message that as long as there is no retribution of socio-economic opportunity and greater equality, there will always be class conflict. Included in SAHA virtual exhibition - 'Transition's Child: The Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF)'
