Anti Riot Police disrupt NCA meeting
National Constitutional Assembly (NCA)
December 29, 2010

Heavily armed Anti Riot Police details with guns, dogs and baton sticks today force marched and dispersed close to 250 NCA members who had gathered at Filabusi Town Centre for an NCA Take Charge campaign meeting.

The NCA National Chairperson Dr Lovemore Madhuku and National Youth Chairperson Alois Dzvairo were briefly detained at Filabusi for two hours and accused of holding a meeting without seeking the approval of the police.

The meeting is part of the ongoing 'Take Charge Campaign,' a campaign seeking to resist the constitution which will come out of the COPAC process.

The NCA condemns the overzealous behavior and action by the police; such actions are an affront to freedoms of association and assembly. We reiterate that no amount of fear nor intimidation will deter our conviction and commitment in the fight for a just and democratic society.
