“Why Workers Should Fight GEAR”: WSF meeting, Cape Town, 10 April 1998

Below:  poster for a meeting by the Workers Solidarity Federation (WSF) for Cape Town, 10 April 1998, meeting on , “Why Workers Should Fight GEAR.” The WSF was largely based in Durban and Johannesburg, but had some Cape Town connections; it was in Cape Town, unsurprisingly, that the translation of WSF materials into Afrikaans took place. GEAR was (and is) the South African state’s highly controversial, neo-liberal, macro-economic framework. It was (and is) widely derided in trade unions. This particular meeting was reportedly not, however, a success.
