Followers of Afropop and Zimbabwean political developments likely know about the #ThisFlag movement, which has breathed new life into the forces of change in this great but troubled nation. This coming week, world leaders, including embattled Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe, will gather at the U.N. in New York City. Friends of Zimbabwe are planning a series of meetings to demonstrate eagerness for change.
Thomas Mapfumo, the “Lion of Zimbabwe,” will be on hand, not to perform, but to speak and lend support to the demonstrations. Below, find a list of public events. All are welcome. We will see you there!
