Dzamara Protest

Now Daily

Occupy Africa Unity Square’s Dirk Frey (right) and colleagues say they will defy the authorities on Monday May 9 2016 by assembling in what has now been renamed Dzamara Square, the place where the group’s kidnapped and missing leader Itai Dzamara launched what has now become a national movement.

“A new Zimbabwe is possible. A new Zimbabwe is coming,” said Itai Dzamara’s brother Patson Dzamara, who will lead the protest Monday.

Itai Dzamara, a journalist, was beaten by the police and left for dead several times after handing dictator Robert Mugabe a petition calling on him to leave office for failing to run the economy. Both Frey and Patson Dzamara have been brutalized by the police for calling on the government to find the missing man, who was kidnapped by known state agents, sparking an international uproar.
