Subject: Anti-Privatisation Forum - APF;
Description: This document titled "Platform of the Anti-Privatisation Forum" was the Anti-Privatisation Forum's (APF's) first attempt to enunciate and explain its core raison d'etre, demands and objectives. This platform was adopted, and then amended by the APF's main democratic body at that stage in its organisational development - the APF Council - at a time when the APF still had some Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) and independent unions, the SACP Johannesburg branch and other ANC-aligned organisations as members. As such, its dominant character and language reflects a less ideologically-laden politics and does not specifically mention or criticise the ANC and the government itself as the main forces behind the privatisation agenda. When these member organisations left the APF (all by 2002), the APF's political-ideological platform began to reflect a much more independent and critical stance towards the ANC and government.
