Description: This Johannesburg anti-eviction camapign flyer was produced in 2003. Some of the earliest community-based struggles of the Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF) centred around housing issues both within the inner-city of Johannesburg as well as within the East Rand region. As part of these struggles, in 2000 the Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF) helped initiate and then supported the Johannebsurg Inner-City Anti-Eviction campaign which sought to simultaneously advocate for pro-poor housing and provision of basic services as well as resist evictions of poor tenants by the City of Johannesburg (COJ). It was this foundation that laid the basis for what was to become a spirited, consistent and multi-faceted struggle for housing rights (and later linked to anti-xenophobia struggles) in the inner-city taken up by the successor to the APF's campaign in the form of the independent Inner City Resource Centre. This 2003 flyer tells part of the story of those struggles. Included in SAHA virtual exhibition - 'Transition's Child: The Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF)'
