Joint press release: Earthlife Africa Jhb, Anti-Privitisation Forum 21st May 2008
The Anti Privatisation Forum attended the Energy Summit on the 16th May 2008 and the ongoing NERSA Public Hearings on the 23rd & 27th May 2008 in regards to ESKOM’s proposed 53% tariff increase. It is clear that these processes were necessary to find a common solution to the current energy crisis in the country so that there could be a common vision.

Electricity is a right and the poor must have access to clean, alternative energy. South Africa needs democratic control of energy for all!
