Zimbabweans, Swazis in freedom march at WSF
Students Solidarity Trust
January 23, 2007

Zimbabwe and Swaziland have hogged the limelight for all the wrong reasons at the on-going World Social Forum.

Activists from Zimbabwe and Swaziland today held a solidarity march at the Moi National Sports Stadium, in Kasarani - the venue of the World Social Forum in Nairobi. Swaziland is the only remaining absolute momarch in Southern Africa, and like Zimbabwe, the mountain kingdom is a dictorship

In a solidarity speech, Hopewell Gumbo from the Zimbabwe Social Forum, held that Robert Mugabe is one the remaining dogs of imperialism in Southern African, and as such, his neo-liberal inclinations have to be exposed and resited at all costs.

There were solidarity speeches by activists from South Africa, Kenya and Ghana.

Zimbabwe's social movements and CSOs are holding marches everyday at 4.30 pm, in an effort to raise awareness on the appaling state of human rights in Zimbabwe and the tyrannical rule of Robert Mugabe.
