Amnesty letter-writing guide
ACTION TYPE EMAIL Women of Zimbabwe Arise (WOZA) is a Zimbabwean activist group that speaks out about social and economic inequalities and human rights conditions in the country.
WOZA members have been demonstrating peacefully against social injustice for ten years.
Urge the Zimbabwean authorities to respect the rights of WOZA members
Since WOZA was formed 10 years ago, we have documented numerous incidents in which the group's members have been arrested, harassed and severely beaten by police after exercising their right to peaceful protest. They have been charged with everything from 'kidnapping and theft' to 'criminal nuisance'.
Please email the message below to the Zimbabwean Ambassador in London to
urge the government to respect the rights of WOZA members.
