"Zimbabwe-Elections free from fear" workshop at the next meeting (8pm - 17th June)
Zimbabwe is due to go to the polls in 2013. The last election in 2008 was marred by extreme violence with over 200 killed and thousands more injured and displaced. Many of those targeted were human rights defenders and civil society activists. Now is a critical time to pressure Zimbabwe and it's neighbours to ensure that the bloodshed is not repeated and that the election is free from violence and fear.
As well as lobbying governments , Amnesty also wants to demonstrate international support for Zimbabwean human rights defenders through solidarity and appeal actions.
