Subject: ACTION AGAINST POVERTY 08 OCT 2005- JOIN IN!

Cdes

the ZCTU has declared tomorrow a day of action against poverty. this call is
coming at a time when daily survival is now a huge struggle for the masses
of poor working people in zimbabwe. with the government's move to a full
neo-liberal program since May this year, life has become totally unbearable.
the ISO is calling on the masses of zimbabwe to come out in full support of
this action. those who can not make it to construction house at 1200hrs
tomorrow can express their solidarity by banging pots and pans outside their
houses to show that we are starving. those who are driving can hoot in
solidarity with the demonstration when it starts at 12.

the poor working people of zimbabwe need support from the working people and
other progressive forces in the region and internationally. as such we are
calling on international comrades to organise pickets and demonstrations
outside zimbabwe's embassies.

Shinga Mushandi Shinga!
