Zimbabwe 'Braces' For Street Protests

Noticed this article tucked away, on what has been otherwise a relatively quiet period for Democracy across the globe.

Apparently the Zim-opposition MDC will be launching 'street-protests' next year. All a lot of hot air? Considering it was 2 years ago that Tsvangirai launched his infamous 'final push', I think the boat may have been missed on that front. It's a shame that its taken 4 rigged elections for the opposition to realise; "It is now clear that Mugabe's misrule will not be liquidated through elections." Unfortunately I really do believe people are so worn down by Mugabe, that whilst having nothing to lose, they dont have the motivation to bring about change. Expect more of the same in 2006
