Zimbabwe: Stop this year’s elections descending into violence

In 2008 it took the intervention of Zimbabwe’s neighbours in the Southern African Development Community (SADC)  to stem the bloodshed. This time, we want them to use their influence to prevent the violence from happening in the first place, and send in human rights monitors so that human rights defenders and activists can carry out their work without fear.

Tanzania is chair of the group responsible for peace and security within the region. Help prevent the bloodshed returning in 2013 – click here to sign our petition to the Tanzanian President, Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete.
