OUR SIXTH ANNIVERSARY IS NEXT WEEK – SATURDAY, 11TH OCTOBER. COME AND JOIN US.

Blustery weather saw out the 6th year of our Vigil outside the Zimbabwe Embassy. But mercifully the threatened downpour held off. Many passers-by were puzzled about what is going on following the power-sharing agreement. We were unable to give them good news. But we are happy to say that Glenys Kinnock MEP will join us next week to mark our anniversary. Mrs Kinnock has taken the Zimbabwe cause to her heart and will pass on our petition to the European Union calling for action to alleviate the suffering of Zimbabweans. (See press release)

As we ended our 6th year, we were pleased to hear from Roy Bennett, Treasurer-General of MDC, with encouraging words for the Vigil. The Vigil was started at Roy’s suggestion at an MDC Central London forum in 2002. When he visited us in August 2005 he described the Vigil as “A fire in Mugabe’s bum”. His latest message: “Thanks for the tremendous work you guys have done around the Vigil. It is the most positive, united and constructive effort that has come out of the UK. Well done you Vigil guys and thanks again for all your commitment and work to free Zim. God bless.”
