About the book

In doing this, the authors actively refuse to travel the path of transition. Instead, they write from the articulatory cauldron of the current social movements in South Africa to seek something better as well as something other than a language of transition. With intense and speculative critiques of sites of struggle, the essays in this collection range in focus from the campaigns of outsourced workers at the University of Cape Town, to the ‘informal high school’ Masiphumelele in the Mandela Park section of Khayelitsha, from the Anti-Eviction Campaign to the Soweto Electricity Crisis Committee, from the Anti Privatisation Forum, to the Congress of South African Trade Unions and the African National Congress, from the millions to the thousands, from the neighbourhood to the nation.
