Solidarity demo for WOZA

Women of Zimbabwe Arise (WOZA) was formed in 2003 to give women an united voice against the social and human rights conditions in Zimbabwe. Since then, WOZA members have been repeatedly arrested, harassed and beaten by police after exercising their right to peacefully protest.

Next week will be the tenth anniversary of WOZA’s first Valentine protest and to mark the occasion Amnesty activists are organising a demo in London on 16 February. The details are below if you're interested in taking part.

The demo will take place from 1-2pm outside the Zimbabwe Embassy in London.

Embassy of the Republic of Zimbabwe
429 Strand
The nearest underground station is Charing Cross

Please bring a single paper rose (or real if you prefer) to lay outside the embassy gate before the demo.

For more information, please contact Maggie Towse, the Zimbabwe Country Co-ordinator:
