Our Collective Duty to Zimbabwe Horace Campbell and Eusi Kwayana

Zimbabwe, a week before the run off elections for the Presidency, presents
many progressive Pan-Africanists with a conflict, be it in analysis or

There are four main competing interests in Zimbabwe, as it is today. First,
but not in order of importance are the interests of the ruling party and its
supporters. These are followed by those of the Opposition, the Movement for
Democratic Change (MDC) and its supporters. Next are the vested interests of
the white minority settlers supported heavily by the United Kingdom and the
neo-conservatives of the Bush Administration in the United States. Finally,
but first in rating, there are the interests of all the producers (workers,
poor peasants, farm workers, traditional healers, cultural workers,
students, traders, hawkers etc.) in Zimbabwe. This last group has been
rendered poor and powerless by the present government of Robert Mugabe and
the ruling party, the Zimbabwe African National Union, Patriotic Front
