Date: November 2008
Subject: Coalition against Xenophobia - CAX;
Description: This offset litho poster was produced by the Coalition against Xenophobia (CAX) in November 2008 and the text reads: "Shut down Lindela : No one is illegal". In 2008, after widespread and violent attacks on immigrants, the majority of which took place in the Gauteng province, the Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF) together with a range of other social movements, community organisations, NGOs and immigrant associations, formed CAX. Over a period of several months, CAX organised a mass march through inner-city Johannesburg, helped provide legal and material assistance to victims of attacks, conducted educational workshops in communities and engaged in a 'Shut Down Lindela' campaign (Lindela being South Africa's main 'detention centre' for 'illegal immigrants' prior to deportation). Included in SAHA virtual exhibition - 'Transition's Child: The Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF)'
