Support the women of Zimbabwe!

Hello Athenites!

Women of Zimbabwe Arise (WOZA), a group of over 75, 000 human rights defenders in Zimbabwe, frequently suffers from political persecution from the government. Although the formation of a unity government in Zimbabwe has meant that day-to-day conditions have marginally improved, there is still a lot of work to do before good governance is a reality.

On February 2nd, 2010, 22 WOZA members were arrested in Zimbabwe's second city of Bulawayo, because they were discussing the constitutional reform process. It is clear that WOZA needs the help and moral support of fellow activists all over the world.

Please use Amnesty Canada's campaign in order to send a message of solidarity to WOZA members or make a donation that will go to public awareness and directly to WOZA. Click here to get involved.

If you live in the United States, you may prefer to make donations or participate through their branch. you can find some information about their Valentine's Day campaign for WOZA here.

Your help, whether it is a simple message of hope or a financial donation, is appreciated.
