Zimbabwe referendum: Vigil Saturday 16 March 3pm

13 March 2013

Support Peace, Human Rights and Democracy 3pm-5pm Outside the Zimbabwe Embassy, Strand, London, WC2R 0QE Nearest tube: Charing Cross, Embankment


Zimbabwe is entering a critical period for human rights, democracy and development.

On 16 March Zimbabweans will go to the polls for the first time since the violent presidential run off in 2008, to vote on the new constitution.

ACTSA will be joining the Zimbabwe Vigil outside Zimbabwe House to support the call for peace, human rights and free and fair elections later this year, will you join us?

Given the main political parties all support a 'yes' vote in the referendum it is unlikely to be affected by the widespread violence that occurred in the presidential election run off in 2008. There is concern however that the elections, which will take place after the referendum, possibly July, could see a return to the terrible violence and intimidation experienced and vote rigging of 2008.

Do join us for an hour on Saturday 16 March between 3pm to 5pm to stand in solidarity with the people of Zimbabwe for peace, human rights and democracy.
