Zimbabwe Community Dialogue
Wednesday July 2nd at 6:00 pm
At the Neibyl Proctor Library, 6100 Telegraph Avenue in Oakland
Speaker: Phillip Machingura
Moderator: Nunu Kidane, Priority Africa Network
The aftermath of the March 29th elections in Zimbabwe have shaken the country to the core. The violence that has erupted, repression of opposition party members & activists and ensuring debates on who’s won by what margin continue to destabilize the country.
In mid April, Priority Africa Network held a community briefing on Zimbabwe – with Phillip Machingura, PAN founding member and native of Zimbabwe, and facilitated by Nesbit Cruchfield.
Phillip Machingura, gave a comprehensive report of what is happening in the current political battles to gain the parliamentary and presidential powers and prospects for moving forward in the months ahead.
The format is informative and education, starting from basic overview of the history of Zimbabwe. This dialogue will be held three days after the re-run elections scheduled for June 27, 2008.
The regular PAN community dialogues bring together diverse Africa-interested activists to gain common understanding from sound analysis and resources for engagement.
This event is sponsored by Priority Africa Network, it is free and open to the public.
Light refreshments will be served, please come on time.
