Zimbabwe remains squarely in the crosshairs of the United States and Great Britain. These Atlantic “cousins” remain committed to reversing the “land reform program” which returned Zimbabwe’s stolen land to its indigenous inhabitants and set a “dangerous” precedent in Africa where political independence did not develop into economic self-determination. The U.S. and UK are determined to remove President Robert Mugabe and his party ZANU-PF.
The demonstrators are demanding President Donald J. Trump repeal the U.S. Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act of 2001 [ZDERA] now. ZDERA has imposed economic sanctions designed to cripple Zimbabwe’s economy.
The December 12th Movement, a US-headquartered international NGO in consultative status with the UN’s Economic and Social Council, defends the human rights of African people in the US and throughout the African Diaspora. The organization acts on the credo of Malcolm X who said that the freedom of African people in the U.S. is inseparable from the existence of a truly independent Africa. Zimbabwe exemplifies that independence.
