We went out onto the streets on 14 July to stand in solidarity with the people of Zimbabwe as they marched to the embassy demanding change in the country. I have never been to a march with so much emotions. It felt as if people were worn down after so many decades of corruption and abuse of power. The cries of people in this video reminded me of many of the biblical cries of the Egyptians in exile and Moses crying out... "Let my people go!"
Just a few days before I spoke to Advocate Gabriel Shumba to ask what we could all do to support Zimbabweans at this time. Here is the interview with him where he gives some background to some of the human rights abuses and crimes against humanity in his country and calls for international solidarity.
