Description: This picture appeared in This Day of October 6, 2004 titled "Police use stun grenades to disperse protesters" and symbolises the standard response of the state to the vast majority of protest actions that were initiated by the Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF) and its community affiliates. Here, a Phiri (Soweto) senior citizen is being man-handled/arrested by police during a protest over prepaid water meters - a protest that saw several arrests and detentions. As the accompanying artciles makes clear, residents engage in such 'illegal' protests as a direct result of the failure of representative and institutional democracy. Included in SAHA virtual exhibition - 'Transition's Child: The Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF)'
