Description: This newspaper clipping is from the 'Mail & Guardian' (M&G) of August 16, 2002, titled "We'll take Sandton! - summit protestors". This was a front page story in the lead-up to the mass march on the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) which took place on 31 August, 2002 and in which the Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF) was centrally involved. The picture of Comrade Florence Nkwashu, a leading APF and Soweto Electricity Crisis Committee (SECC) activist was taken at a rally of the Social Movements Indaba (a collection of movements, NGOs and activists formed before the WSSD) as part of a range of activities in the run-up to the march. As it turned out, between 20 000-25 000 people marched from Alexandra to Sandton under the banner of the Social Movements United.
