Zimbabwe's Illegal News Conference

Morgan TsvangiraiZimbabwe's opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has been arrested again by armed riot police, who sealed off the headquarters of Zimbabwe's Movement for Democratic Change party in Harare shortly before its leader was due to hold a news conference. He was expected to address regional leaders beginning later today in Tanzania at a special summit of the Southern African Development Community focusing on the region's political and security situation.

How much longer will we simply look on?

I am reminded of a quote from South Africa's Steve Biko: "The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed."
