Zimbabwe demo this Saturday (29 March)

zim.jpg From the Zimbabwean Development Support Agency:

This Saturday the 29th of March, Zimbabwe is holding its national presidential elections once again. ZDSA Wales, in collaboration with Zimbabweans worldwide is demonstrating against continual electoral rigging, inhumane treatment of fellow Zimbabweans and utmost poverty of the masses under the Mugabe regime.
Zimbabweans in the diaspora have been stripped of their rights to vote in order to influence change in their own country.
-There is an average of 600 Zimbabweans living in Wales.
It is estimated half of them are been rendered destitute in the asylum process since 2002 and cannot be returned home due to the political situation.
-A high number of Zimbabweans have been living in limbo for more than 5 years with no light at the end of the tunnel since deportation was suspended in 2002.
-Mugabe’s repressive tyranny in the past of 27 years has brought the country to its knees.
-In Zimbabwe the average person lives in abject poverty with the highest inflation rate in the world.
Life expectancy of the average Zimbabwean male and female is now 32 years.
HOW LONG CAN THE WORLD WATCH THIS ATROCITY?
HELP US TO MAKE A STAND!!
HELP US CHANGE OUR FUTURE!!
HELP US TO BE HEARD!!
The Zimbabwean Development Support Association Wales is holding a demonstration in Cardiff at the Bevan Statue, Queen Street, Cardiff on Saturday the 29th of March and will be held from 12:30-14:00 hrs.
