Sanctions lifted on MDC Advice: Miliband
by Gilbert Nyambabvu
The article that finally shoved the cat out of the bag. It was pretty obvious that of course there are economic sanctions on Zimbabwe, but this was the first time the British government broke ranks. Within the MDC, Tendai Biti had already made statements that the MDC could not govern with ZDERA in place (see my comments on the Amanpour-Mugabe interview on CNN).

The British High Commissioner to Zambia is trying to do damage control, but makes things worse by referring to 'restrictions' and 'targeted individuals' (as if that would make their sanctions any less illegal). She tries to push the lie that economic sanctions have not hurt ordinary people.
Sanctions debate: should they be lifted?
by Violet Gonda
Voice Of America's Violet Gonda asks a sundry of MDC supporters whether they 'feel' whether sanctions exist or should be lifted. The answers are ignorant or just straight line partisan. The affiliations of some of the participants are listed, including NED grant participants.
Tsvangirai rejects black quota law
More on the treasonous nature of the MDC. Not only is the 'former trade union leader' betraying the interests of the workers, he is explicitly putting the interests of capital and transnational corporations first. Betraying your country by calling for sanctions and military invasion is I guess a small step after betraying the working class.

(ZWNEWS) Mutumwa Mawere's empire crumbles further
Mutumwa Mawere, who has been pushing the history of Dead White Colonists (from Cecil Rhodes through Sir Otto Beit and Barney Barnato) on us in his column "Pushing The Envelope Of Knowledge" (in 22 installments) at NewZimbabwe.com, owns an asbesthos mine! What a fitting tribute to Cecil Rhodes. Anyone who knows anything about asbesthos knows that most or all the miners there are dead men walking. And a number of their children too through secondary exposure. Welcome to the MDC.
