This is a photo mosaic of Lovemore Matombo and Wellington Chibebe, the President and General Secretary of the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU). They were arrested on 8 May for speaking out about the state-sponsored violence in Zimbabwe - or as Robert Mugabe's government put it "spreading falsehoods prejudicial to the State".
Lovemore and Wellington are due to appear in court, to defend themselves against these charges, though their trial has been postponed many times, keeping unfair bail conditions of no public gatherings in force during this critical time for their country. The mosaic is made up from the pictures of over 2,000 trade unionists from around the world, who have come together to make this public demonstration of support for the ZCTU leaders and all unionists in Zimbabwe.
Please take a moment to add your voice to this growing tide of support for these brave trade unionists. Everyone can do something to help, just follow these 3 simple steps.
