Description: This article, titled "Residents up in arms over Eskom's planned tariff hikes" appeared in The Star of April 24, 2008. This story speaks to one of the successes of the Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF), which was to take issues that seemingly were only of concern to anti-privatisation organisations and the poor, to a wider range of people/communities. One such issue/struggle was around the general increase in electricity tariffs in the late 2000s where the APF, in struggle with organisations like Earthlife, were able to effectively mobilise and generate action that linked this to larger issues of public energy needs and environmental concerns. The spaces opened up by such initiatives and struggles, continue to expand democratic voice and impact. IIncluded in SAHA virtual exhibition - 'Transition's Child: The Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF)'
