Solidarity with Zimbabwe Trade Unionists

Zimbabwe Mosaic

Show your support for Lovemore Matombo and Wellington Chibebe, the President and General Secretary of the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU). They were arrested on 8 May for speaking out about the state-sponsored violence in Zimbabwe – or as Robert Mugabe’s government put it “spreading falsehoods prejudicial to the State”.

Lovemore and Wellington are due to appear in court on 30 July, to defend themselves against these charges. The mosaic of Lovemore and Wellington on Union Island is made up from the pictures of over 2,000 trade unionists from around the world, who have come together to make this public demonstration of support for the ZCTU leaders and all unionists in Zimbabwe.

Please take a moment to add your voice to this growing tide of support for these brave trade unionists at www.wearezctu.org
