Protest banner against arms consignment to be displayed at Zimbabwean Embassy at 12:00 today

The leadership of AfriForum, the civil rights initiative established by Solidarity, will today (21 April) display a protest banner against the Zimbabwean Defence Force’s purchase of arms from China at 12:00 in front of the Zimbabwean Embassy — Zimbabwe House, 798 Merton Street, Arcadia, Pretoria.  The banner reads “Zimbabwe needs Ballots, not Bullets“.  AfriForum would have displayed this, as well as other banners in Durban this past Saturday with the aid of two chartered fishing boats at the site where the Chinese ship carrying the arms consignment had been anchored.  The protest action was however cancelled after the ship had hurriedly departed from South African territorial waters.
