Voices of Protest!
The socio-economic transformation of South Africa is necessary
for the consolidation of its democracy. This can only be fully
realised when poor people’s voices are heard in the corridors of
power. Voices of Protest documents the first post-apartheid initiatives of
poor people to mobilise and organise themselves. It analyses social
struggles and movements in a variety of arenas. The book illuminates their demands, leadership and membership, organisational structure, and most importantly, their politics.
It also assesses the collective effect of South Africa’s social movements
on the country’s democracy and its socio-economic system. This is
a compelling book for anyone interested in understanding
contemporary South Africa and its future.
