With the country’s meteorologists fore-warning us of  some treacherous winds from the Arctic aggravated by an icy storm from the North Pole, 22 Novemeber lived up to its predictions. However, the foot solders of Vigil - galvanised by their resolve to continue raising Glasgow’s awareness to the problems of Zimbabwe – proved that weather is no barrier to their commitment to the struggle. 


Also braving the weather were our colleagues from ROHR coming from England (LondonKent, Birmingham and Newcastle) and an interim committee of ROHR was set up enabling the official set up of a ROHR chapter here. A substantive committee will be in place soon and we will keep you posted. 


We at the Zimbabwe Vigil Glasgow eagerly await our proposed street march on 29 November 2008 where we will have the support of the Unity Centre Glasgow and broader civic society in bringing the Zimbabwe crisis, home and abroad, to the Scottish community at large. 


For the record we were joined by roughly 40 people.
