Teachers Call For Civil Disobedience To Force Govt Reverse Austerity Measures

Amalgamated Rural Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe president Obert Masaraure said that Zimbabweans should engage in peaceful demonstrations to force the government to deal with the economic challenges currently prevailing in the country.

Masaraure is against the concept of stone-throwing or violent action as this gives the state an excuse to use force against unarmed civilians. Said Masaraure,

The State commands institutions of brutal force; it will be naive to engage in stone throwing in a bid to avert the looming catastrophe. We should never give them a reason to shoot at our defenceless citizens. The morality of our struggle will be judged by how much we can resist provocation and remain loyal to the principal cardinal of non-violent action.
