Vigil Diary – 7th January 2006

LONDON - Our first Vigil of the New Year was the coldest of the winter so far. But it was bright and, most importantly, dry. We had a reasonable turnout for this torpid time of year - about the same number who attended on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. It was certainly easier than New Year's E

ve when supporters had to brave a tube strike.

Some of our members agreed to speak about Zimbabwe at an Anglican church in Speldhurst, Kent. We are always keen to raise awareness in the churches and particularly welcome the opportunity to tell Anglicans about the Bishop of Harare, the Mugabe clone and part-time farmer.

As usual, supporters came from far and wide – Rugby, Leicester, Southampton, Canterbury. It is inspiring to know of the great efforts people make to join us outside the Embassy. For some it takes many hours and considerable expense.

As usual, Wiz’s newsboards attracted a lot of attention, briefing people on the latest dismal news from Zimbabwe. There is certainly a lot of interest and sympathy. We see our job as building on this.

FOR THE RECORD: 22 supporters came today.
