Second Life for Zimbabwe

Amidst the growing violence and intimidation in the run-up to the Zimbabwean election, the leaders of Zimbabwe’s union movement, Lovemore Matombo and Wellington Chibebe have been arrested for speaking out about the situation, and are being tried on Monday 23 June.

Unions around the world will be taking actions on Monday, in support of Wellington and Lovemore. Come to Union Island at 3pm GMT (4pm CET, 7am SLT) to meet campaigners and find out what you can do to help. We’ll also be unveiling a giant mural of Lovemore and Wellington in Second Life, made up from 2,000 photos of unionists from around the world.
