ZimRights launches "Reflections" in South Africa
Human Rights Association (ZimRights)
July 06, 2010
Rights Association (ZimRights) yesterday launched the "Reflections"
photo exhibition at John Moffat Building. Witwatersrand University
Main Campus in South Africa.
Over fifty people
attended the launch to view the pictures, among them were representatives
Constitution Assembly (NCA) and Crisis Regional office as well
as individuals who have been forced into exile as a result of the
political turbulence. In their solidarity speeches, the representatives
of NCA and Crisis
Coalition highlighted the need to continue telling the story
of Zimbabweans. They iterated that the struggle in Zimbabwe is not
isolated, but is a struggle for the Southern African region. The
whole Region must join hands in the struggle against the continued
human rights violations and restoring the respect for the rule of
ZimRights only managed
to launch Reflections in Harare, Bulawayo and Mutare but not without
difficulty as the police continued to interfere. However the launch
in Masvingo was a total failure after the police impounded the pictures
and have since returned them to date. They arrested the ZimRights
regional Chairperson for Masvingo, Mr. Joel Hita for organizing
the exhibition without police clearance, Attorney General Tomana
has sanctioned the prosecution of Mr. Hita, barely two weeks after
endorsing the prosecution of Owen Maseko, Matebeleland Gukurahundi
Echoing the solidarity
speeches given by NCA and Crisis Coalition, the struggle in Zimbabwe
is African's responsibility. The people of Zimbabwe have suffered
enough at the hands of politicians. It is time that people join
hands to put an end to gross human rights violations, attack on
human rights defenders and demand the respect for the rule of law.
