Please come and join us on Saturday 23rd March 2013 for the 15th round of the Free Zimbabwe Global Campaign. The campaign has seen monthly protests by the Zimbabwean diaspora round the world since the beginning of last year.

 

We will be delivering a letter to the Tanzania High Commission to pass on to President Kikwete, Chairperson of the SADC Security Troika.

 

The letter condemns illegal police harassment of civil society and opposition members and calls on SADC to insist that Zimbabwean police act within the law and respect the spirit of the Global Political Agreement.
