National Constitutional Assembly (NCA)
image gallery from this demonstration
In an act of clear determination
and courage, more than 300 NCA activists staged a demonstration
from Harare's Copacabana area to the Parliament Building. They were
however violently dispersed by riot police who were heavily armed.
The police launched a severe attack on the activists and the general
public who were in the vicinity of the area that they were marching.
The activists who were chanting songs about the need for a new constitution,
braved the wet weather as they marched. The demonstration was staged
so as to protest against the Constitution of Zimbabwe Amendment
Number 18 Act as well as the degenerating situation of ordinary
Zimbabweans who are experiencing a dire political, social and economic
The struggle to have a new, democratic and people driven constitution
will continue as long as the issue remains unaddressed. We say no
to willy-nilly amendments of the constitution. Rather, the people
of Zimbabwe should be consulted so that they contribute to the process
of making a new constitution. Demonstrations will therefore continue
so as to pressure the government to embrace our cause.
The struggle continues, we are indeed ready to die for a new constitution.
