Zimbabwe: stop the treason trial!

Submitted by Matthew on 15 February, 2012 - 10:15

A group of socialists, trade unionists, student activists and human rights activists are on trial in Zimbabwe for treason.

Many of them are members of the International Socialist Organisation of Zimbabwe. If convicted they face years in prison.

At one point the government was prosecuting 39 individuals, but this has now been reduced to seven (though the charges against the others have not actually been dropped).

The comrades will fin out on 15 February whether the government will proceed with the trial. They need solidarity!
