Conference Rush on Zimbabwe Petition

I had been thinking of going to the "fixing our broken society" debate at 2.30, but now realise the afternoon has flown by without my noticing - such has been the interest from people wanting to sign The Difference petition calling for tougher sanctions against Mugabe's regime in Zimbabwe! Literally hundreds have been coming forward to sign, a good number sharing their recollections of the country, one even having served for eight months in Zimbabwe's army because he didn't read the small print when he went to live there for two years!

If you haven't yet signed the petition, follow the link at Zimbabwe: Will Anybody Help? to do so online.

(Someone has just told me that the debate was excellent, with a number of contributors receiving standing ovations.)
