The 1893 Mthwakazi Human Rights Restoration Movement's (1893 MHRRM's) UK Chapter hereby announces that it will be holding another Matebele "Gukurahundi" Genocide Demonstration against the Zimbabwean government on the 28th July 2018. The Demonstration will take place outside Zimbabwe's UK embassy, the Zimbabwe House, located at number 429 Strand, London, WC2R 0JR from 1pm to 5pm.

The Demo will be denouncing the following:

• Zanu PF Government's Matebele "Gukurahundi Genocide" and its on-going systematic Human Rights violations of the Matebele people using state security apparatus like the intelligence, army, war-veterans, ethnic militia youth groups and the police as well as using civil servant leadership, traditional leaders, leadership in institutions of academia and corporate businesses to enforce these Human Rights violations.

• The importation of violence, bombs and terrorism acts into Matebeleland by the genocidal Zanu PF government of Zimbabwe and the full scale deployment of the security apparatus of the state of Zimbabwe that includes the army, para-military intelligence, the intelligence and the police after the Zanu PF leadership wrangle inspired bombing incident at the White City Stadium in Bulawayo on the 23rd June 2018. This bombing incident draws parallels with the abduction and killing of White Tourists in Matebeleland in 1982 that was blamed on the Matebele, selling a dummy to the International world that Matebeleland was engaging in acts of terrorism while the real culprits were Zanu PF whose agenda was to unleash a genocide on the unsuspecting and peace-loving Matebele people.

• The importation of violence into Matebeleland by the MDC-T Chamisa faction party using its youth militia called "The Order of The Vanguard" that has descended into Matebeleland targeting Nkosazana Khuphe and the Matebele and shedding blood in the process.

• The elections that are being conducted in a heavy cloud of terrorism, full scale deployment of the security apparatus to intimidate the people and send shock waves across Matebeleland and elsewhere in Zimbabwe.

The Demo will also be calling on:

• SADC, ECOWAS and the African Union to intervene in Zimbabwe to prevent the country sliding quickly into a civic war.

• The International Community, particularly the United States of America, the former colonial power of Zimbabwe, Britain and the West to show leadership and avoid assisting and supporting Genocide-loving "strong man" leadership of Africa to continue to spill African blood wantonly while Africans suffer and emigrate, in large numbers to other African countries and Europe, whom Europe shuts out while at the same time contributing hugely to the problems they face in their countries of origin.

All human rights defenders are therefore invited to attend the Demo on the eve of the already rigged Zimbabwean elections.
