ITUC: Lovemore Matombo, Wellington Chibebe Website

Zimbabwe: New ITUC Solidarity Website Supporting Lovemore Matombo and Wellington Chibebe

Brussels, 28 July 2008 -- The ITUC has launched a new website with a photo mosaic of Lovemore Matombo and Wellington Chibebe, the President and General Secretary of the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU).

Lovemore Matombo and Wellington Chibebe 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 on 30 July, to defend themselves against these charges. 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.

The ITUC represents 168 million workers in 155 countries and territories and has 311 national affiliates. Website: http://www.ituc-csi.org
