University of KwaZulu-Natal Press, 2006 - History - 437 pages
The socio-economic transformation of South Africa is necessary for the consolidation of its democracy. This can be fully realized only 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 mobilize and organize themselves. The book analyzes social struggles and movements in a variety of arenas. It illuminates poor peopleā??s demands, leadership, organizational structure, and most importantly, their politics. The book also assesses the collective effect of South Africa's social movements on the country's democracy and its socio-economic system.
