Happy Valentines Day from WOZA, MOZA


700 members of Women and Men of Zimbabwe Arise – WOZA and MOZA marched through Harare with Valentine cards, roses and copies of the WOZA report on the state of democracy in Zimbabwe

In typical WOZA fashion, six protests started separately and converged on the offices of the Herald. The peaceful groups sang as they marched, handing out roses and Valentine cards to excited Saturday
shoppers who rushed forward to accept the gifts.

At the Herald offices, the peaceful protestors chanted slogans for a few minutes before leaving a copy of the report, a Valentine rose and a WOZA scarf at the door before dispersing without incident.

The report, entitled ‘Hearts starve as well as bodies — give us bread but give us roses too! Democratising Zimbabwe — an opportunity to shine!’ is a snapshot of community activists’ views on the state of democracy in Zimbabwe one year after the formation of the Government of National Unity (GNU). It also urges Zimbabweans to participate in democratizing Zimbabwe.
