Description: This newspaper clipping titled "Plakkers: Ons sal die wereld omkeer" appeared in the Beeld of August 10, 2007. Here, the youth burning tyres become yet again, as in the apartheid era, the symbol of community protest against broken promises and government indifference. In this case, the protest organised by the Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF) community affiliates in the Vaal region, was over long-delayed promises of proper housing and basic services in the informal settlement on Dunusa, Sebokeng along with anger over corrupt local councillors. Included in SAHA virtual exhibition - 'Transition's Child: The Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF)'
