Cathy Buckle - Zimbabwe. Book called "AFRICAN TEARS"

Democracy, as understood by the “free” world, no longer exists in Zimbabwe. Huge swathes of the countryside have been turned into “no go” areas by the ruling party’s thugs who are now known as “war veterans”. This means that no news, other than Government spin doctoring, comes forth. When the ugly truth finally does come out, the world will be horrified. The truth is that there is absolutely no rule of law. The elections which were held in March 2002 were rigged by the ruling party. Currently, ZanuPF are illegitimately “ruling” the country. Human rights abuses have continued unabated. Cathy Buckle is just one of the people who have the courage and conviction to let the world know what she sees and experiences on a daily basis.
The reality is that while you read this, crimes against humanity are in progress and very little, if anything, is being done to stop this madness. State sponsored terror and anarchy continues unabated…..

You may well ask what you can do to help. If you live in a free and democratic country, all Zimbabweans would ask is that you make your concerns known to your representatives in Government and urge them to put pressure on the government of Zimbabwe.

What shall we do about Robert Mugabe?

(Later) in the thirteenth century, St Thomas Aquinas, who was perhaps the greatest of all Catholic theologians, and other philosophers developed the theological argument for limits on royal power. Aquinas worte” A king who is unfaithful to his duty forfeits his claim to obedience. It is not rebellion to depose him, for he himself is a rebel whom the nation has a right to put down. But it is better to abridge his power, that he may be unable to abuse it.” Thus was theological authority put behind the idea that tyrants could be deposed. Both John of Salisbury, an English bishop who witnessed Becket’s murder in the twelfth century, and Roger Bacon, a thirteenth century scholar – whom John Acton describes as the most distinguished English writers of their respective epochs – defend even the right to kill tyrants…

The Star had a report today (5 October 2007)

which gave details of a talk gave by former cabinet minister Kader Asmal in which he delivered a devastating attack on the Zimbabwean Government, accusing it of conducting a tyrannical war on its own people, and dramatically confessed that he should have spoken out sooner. (Angela Quintal – Group Political Editor)

The talk was given at a book launch – _Through the Darkness_by activist Judith Todd
