Activists from Earthlife and the Anti-privatisation Forum say they were assaulted and arrested at the National Energy Regulator’s public hearings into Eskom’s proposed tariff hikes in Midrand yesterday.

They say posters they placed on the venue’s walls were torn down by security guards.

When they complained about being refused entry to the hall, police were called.

Three activists were arrested on charges of public violence and resisting arrest.
