    Panorama - 5 Days in Zimbabwe

    Did anyone see this pretty harrowing programme tonight?

    Terrible stuff anyway, lets hope this creates some awareness....

    They had a lot of stuff from the lords test and Andy Flower and Henry Olonga talking about life there....

    Yeah I saw it, it was one of the most brillant and moving yet extremely horrible programmes. When they were talking about how they were going to die anyway from starvation so they have no alternative but to protest. When the guy came in from a protest, went to bed then was woken up and brutally beaten in his own home. He couldn't move and had to be carried then laid down. In a short interview he just said he hoped it was worth it and then he died 24 hours later. Was extraordinarily moving to see these people coming back from getting the absolute **** kicked out of them by police then coming on camera and still being enthusiastic (if that's the word) about protests. :wow:. Did anyone see the bit with Henry Olonga's brother? It sounded like he supported the government but I only heard a part of it so could be wrong.

    yeah he supported Mugabes Land reclamation, and respected him hugeley as a politician... Maybe he just wants to stay alive....
