Zimbabwean human rights lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa is making two appearances this week in Sydney, on Thursday and Friday.
From the Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA website:
“In spite of intimidation and beatings by police, Beatrice has courageously defended those jailed by the Mugabe government – peace activists, trade unionists, journalists, opposition candidates, farmers that had their land confiscated, and ordinary citizens that had the courage to speak up.”
On Thursday Mtetwa will give the annual public lecture at the Australian Human Rights Centre.
Friday’s event will include a screening of an hour-long documentary, Beatrice Mtetwa and the Rule of Law, directed by Lorie Conway.
