Know your rights campaign launched
The human rights cluster has started Community focus group meetings with the young people in Mbare.These meetings seek to provide a platform to learn, share experience on human rights abuses that took place during the time of violence and to proffer solutions on the protection of human rights to avoid further violations in the future and build sustainable peace.
The simplified version of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other human rights related material are being distributed. It is the mandate of the Cluster to take the campaign to other high density suburbs, rural and farm areas around Zimbabwe.
It is sad to note that very few people know all their rights, millions of people continue to suffer because their rights are not respected and thousands are in the prison for saying what they believe is true, this is not only a violation of the universally recognized human rights, but it is terrorism against the population.
