    The Young Communist League of South Africa condemns the continued violation of human rights and the harassment of the members of the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Union (ZCTU) by the ruling ZANU-PF government.

    This shows that the Zimbabwean government is engaged in a brutal offensive to ambush the people of Zimbabwe and deny them their fundamental rights to enjoy freedom and democracy.

    It is now clear that as long as Robert Mugabe is still at the helm, there will always be 26 years of hell and a reversal of the liberation gains waged by the people of Zimbabwe 26 years ago.

    As the YCL we are bitter and aggrieved at the brutal murder of Gift Tandare, the Youth Chairperson of the National Constitutional Assembly in the Glenview suburb in Harare, the arrest, beating and torturing of the leadership of the main opposition. The YCL sends its deepest condolences to the Tandare family and the struggling youth of Zimbabwe and his death should not deter the people of Zimbabwe in general and the youth in particular from their struggle to restore freedom and democracy in Zimbabwe.

    We call on the ANC and the government to condemn in strongest terms these outrageous violations of human rights, torture and harassment of pro-democracy forces in Zimbabwe.

    The ANC cannot afford to be quiet when those who offered solidarity when South Africa was fighting and engaged in the struggle against apartheid are being brutally attacked by the ruling ZANU-PF.

    The YCL commits itself to maximum mobalisation in solidarity with the ZCTU organised general strike scheduled for the 3rd and the 4th of April 2007. Further as a formation of the working class, the YCL is convinced that Zimbabwe's salvation is not possible without the full support and involvement of the organised working class.
