On 18 April 1980, Zimbabwe was declared independent and strategies were put in place to restore ownership of the land and its riches, to the locals.
37 years later, the struggle for the majority of Zimbabweans to; not only own a piece of their land, but also to just survive…..obtain the basics....continues!
Zimbabwe is now a cashless, jobless, opinion quashed land riddled with potholes and empty mine holes, God knows where those mine contents went. From Gukurahundi to foiled bearers cheques to bond notes; the nation has suffered all facets of abuse and Zimbabweans emotions, aspirations and pockets are just rags!
We ZHRO say enough is enough! The time to rectify all this is now!
ZHRO, in conjunction with other like minded activist groups, are protesting against this continued struggle, in the biggest voice yet; through a demonstration themed “What Independence? Take 2 Zimbabwe,”
Please join us at Zimbabwe House in London at 1100 hours through to 1500 hours, on Tuesday 18 April 2017.
Come and be the voice for the voiceless, those who were denied the chance to express themselves and had their opinions drowned by torture and abuse.
Zimbabwe needs you, you are her only hope!
Please bring your flag, your trumpet and a comfortable pair of shoes and take part in the expressions of the day.
Remember, YOU need to be the change you want to see!

U.K. HUMAN RIGHTS PROTESTERS CAUSE THE CLOSURE OF SOUTH AFRICA HIGH COMMISSION IN PLANNED ANTI XENOPHOBIA PEACEFUL PROTEST.
As Africans in the U.K. on the 11th September 2019, (11/09/19) we united to protest at SOUTH AFRICA HOUSE against the Xenophobic attacks on black migrants by indigenous South Africans carried out mostly in the capital city Johannesburg and the port city of Durban.
In the past weeks, we have seen yet again, Xenophobic atrocities happening in SOUTH AFRICA against fellow black Africans. Zimbabweans, Nigerians, Ghanaian's and so many other Africans have been affected. One of the videos shows a man being burned alive, in another video a man is apparently beaten to death, he is effectively being summarily tortured by mob rule.

MDC co-vice president, Tendai Biti has bemoaned what he calls “State Capture” in Zimbabwe characterised by the formation of cartels in command agriculture, fuel sector, banking sector, communications sector, to mention but a few.
Biti opined that the crude ecosystem of State Capture now a reality in Zimbabwe has never been seen before. He writes:
"Beyond legitimacy and the economic crisis, the country suffers from an unprecedented, unparalleled and unmitigated, scourge of capture and corruption. The current regime has redefined kleptocracy, patronage and patrimonialism. The current regime has invented its own set of cronyism. A new blend of Mobutism that makes Mobutu Seseko a toddler, in the art of State Capture."

PRESS RELEASE ###STARTS###
On Wednesday April 18, 2018, Zimbabwe Human Rights Organisation (ZHRO), and other Human Rights organizations including Restoration of Human Rights Zimbabwe (ROHR) & Zimbabwe Citizens Initiative (ZCI), some political parties, and citizens movements are uniting to demonstrate outside the Zimbabwean Embassy in London.
ZHRO is initiating an ongoing campaign for a second independence for Zimbabwe termed, '#Take2Zimbabwe' in support of a united citizens ‘front’ coming together against the betrayal of independence irrespective of parties, groups, movements etc. In effect ‘the people’ will be rejecting the Independence Day celebration in favour of triggering their own “Zexit” – leaving behind the failed State of Zimbabwe in favour of a new Independent Zimbabwe.
"#Take2Zimbabwe What Independence? concept was birthed from realization that I/you/we and those past have been tragically betrayed by the military regime & government. The very definition of independent is not what Zimbabwe is today or has been for decades. Look around you, What Independence?" - Mable Kayiya; Marketing Department ZHRO.
"We feel that the protest is necessary to highlight the Human Right abuses in Zimbabwe, we cannot celebrate being Independent when we are being denied the right to vote and our people are being abducted and tortured for speaking out the truth," stated Farai Nhakaniso, spokesperson for ROHR Zimbabwe U.K. Chapter.
