Product Description

by Ashwin Desai


While the end of apartheid in South Africa signaled the end of legalized formal inequality, material inequality in South Africa is on the rise and new political movements have arisen to combat oppression and the neoliberal agenda of the African National Congress and the corporate globalizers. Desai (Workers' College, South Africa) recounts the story of one of these community movements arising out of Durban, describing its origins and activities in resistance to evictions, privatizations, and other deprivations of neoliberalism.
