Zimbabwe on the Edge | Freedom House

Zimbabwe on the Edge

Wednesday, November 4, 2009 - 11:30am to 1:30pm

1800 Massachusetts Ave, NW
SEIU Building
Washington, DC

Since the disengagement of Morgan Tsvangirai’s MDC from Zimbabwe’s Government of National Unity two weeks ago, frequent reports of renewed violence and intimidation are raising fears of a return to 2008 conditions, a crackdown on Zimbabwean democrats and a breakdown of the SADC-brokered Global Political Agreement.

Please join Freedom House for a discussion with Zimbabwean stakeholders on the situation within Zimbabwe and their views on the best way forward.

Zimbabwe Civil Society participants from Johannesburg, South Africa, via video conference link will include:

Rev. Useni Sibanda, National Director, Zimbabwe Christian Alliance, Bulawayo
Dr. Frances Lovemore, Medical Director, Amani Trust, Harare
Okay Machisa, National Director, ZIMRIGHTS, Harare
McDonald Lewanika, Director, Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition, Harare
Moderator: Vukasin Petrovic, Freedom House, Senior Program Manager for Africa
