NCA SHIFTS DATE FOR PLANNED PROTESTS

The NCA wishes to advise the public and other stakeholders that peaceful demonstrations that were meant to take place tomorrow, Tuesday 25 November 2008, will now take place on Wednesday 26 November 2008. human_rights_1.jpg

This change has been due to some logistical issues emanating from
consultations with strategic partners who are joining the NCA in the
organizing of the peaceful protest actions.

The demonstrations will be carried out in Harare, Bulawayo, Mutare,
Masvingo and Gweru and continue to be part of the NCA push for its
suggested three-point plan that will help bring democracy and
prosperity to Zimbabwe.

The three-point plan that the NCA has proposed in response to the country's political, social and economic crisis is as follows:

1.    Transitional Government. There must be set up a Transitional
Government, whether composed of the political parties engaged in the
current dialogue or by neutral people with the immediate responsibility
of addressing our humanitarian tragedy: food crisis, health crisis,
water crisis, cash crisis. It must avert starvation and save lives. It
must restore normalcy to other aspects of our national life.

2.    People-Driven Constitution. During the lifespan of the
Transitional Government, Zimbabweans must be given full freedom to
write their own constitution in an open process such as that outlined
in the Zimbabwe People's Charter. The process must end with a
referendum.

3.    Free and Fair Elections. Free and fair elections must be held
under the new constitution and the new government emanating from the
elections must be installed. The elections must be internationally
supervised and monitored.
