About the Book

This edition of the State of Social Movements in Southern Africa brings together political platforms and declarations by South Africa’s anti-neoliberal social movements over the last 20 years or so. The post-apartheid social movements developed a range of platforms on a number of struggles that they engaged in over this period. A constant thread that runs through the documents assembled in this volume is a critique of neoliberalism, its global institutions and the implementation of neoliberal policies by the African National Congress since it adopted GEAR in 1996.

This edition of the Documents of the Social Movements therefore also reflects the key platforms of this global movement, including the anti-war movement, the struggles against global institutions of neoliberalism, and the World Social Forum process. The volume goes on to include documents reflecting the re-entry of South Africa’s trade union movement into the anti-neoliberal struggles and movements in the post-Marikana period, including declarations from the Working Class Summit held in 2018.
