to use military force against demonstrators condemned
Liberators' Platform (ZLP)
May 30, 2003
Liberators Platform representing genuine war veterans, would like
to remind ZNLWVA that:
by any Zimbabwean citizen or group of nationals is a constitutional
right as long as it is peaceful.
- No one has
legal or moral authority or right to use military force to stop
a demonstration. Real war veterans will not use their "own
military experience" to suppress a peaceful demonstration.
Only rogue elements masquerading as war veterans threaten to fight
and intimidate the people. After all, genuine freedom fighters
took up arms to dislodge a colonial regime that used military
force against the people who were demanding their basic rights
and freedoms, including the right to demonstrate peacefully.
condemns the use of force, by anybody whatsoever, to suppress peaceful
demonstrations by any citizens or group of citizens.
ZLP would also
like to appeal to any members of the public who plan to demonstrate
to do so peacefully.
