The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions has been informed that a number of activits from the Progressive Teachers Union (PTUZ), including general secretary, Raymond Majogwe were abducted this morning by Zanu PF youths and were reportedly taken to the party offices along fouth street were they are being tortured. Reports we are getting is that some of them may have been beaten seriously. All their telephones have been taken away from them.
The PTUZ, an affiliate of the ZCTU, was distributing flyers on the State of the education system in Zimbabwe and were demanding that authorities act on the collapse of the education system.

Hi! Just saw you were blogging about human rights in Africa and wanted to let you know about my project.

I'm a student at the University of Southern California and I've recently launched, a site intended to spread awareness about promoting education in Africa that is targeted towards young people, especially students. The goal is to eventually reach American legislators in order to make them more aware of the issue.

It would be great if you could join! If you could also possibly link to my site or mention it in the blog, it would be deeply appreciated.

All the best,
