Free Zimbabwe

  • Facebook update Facebook update "Friends, I am looking beyond the constitution to a more fundamental issue. Some might say there is nothing more fundamental than a constitution. But that is only true when you have already established the conditions for the rule of law. So let's be logical. First we have to get rid of Zanu-PF.

  Roy Bennett welcomes you to Free Zimbabwe

Thanks for your interest in the struggle against oppression in Zimbabwe. We need your help. The people continue to suffer. Zimbabwe may not be in the news, but make no mistake: thousands continue to die under the venal rule of Robert Mugabe and his party, Zanu (PF). Brave men and women are murdered—battered to death, thrown into dams, buried in unmarked graves. Untold numbers perish every week from preventable causes—women in childbirth, and the old and young alike from the AIDS epidemic that has swept across our country like a tsunami. The 'lucky' join our more than one million AIDS orphans, our little ones living like dogs on the street. Mugabe is unmoved in body or soul.

You can make a real difference. Many have understandably become cynical about Zimbabwe, feeling that stagnation has set-in, that Zimbabweans have given up, that change can never come. But that is not true. The people remain resolute and committed. Help us by spreading the word about what is happening in Zimbabwe and by contributing financially to the cause. You may not be able to fight with us in the trenches, but you can join the struggle. Every time you tell someone about Zimbabwe and every dollar you give will bring us closer. Together we can make Zimbabwe free.
