Mugabe’s Birthday Bash: 21st February 2012

The Vigil joined with the MDC in the UK in a demonstration outside the South African High Commission in London on Mugabe’s birthday, 21st February.

It was the second demonstration in a monthly campaign organized by the 21st Movement Free Zimbabwe Global Protest with the aim of putting pressure on South Africa to enforce the Global Political Agreement.

A Vigil supporter wearing our Mugabe mask was given three birthday presents: sanctions eased, looted diamonds and typhoid. He also carried a poster: ‘Mugabe’s 88th Birthday – vote for me or DIE’.

The Vigil, outside the Zimbabwe Embassy, 429 Strand, London, takes place every Saturday from 14.00 to 18.00 to protest against gross violations of human rights in Zimbabwe. The Vigil which started in October 2002 will continue until internationally-monitored, free and fair elections are held in Zimbabwe.
