21 December 2020
We just ended the commemoration of 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence on the 10th of December on a high note.
However, the Artuz Gender and Social Welfare Desk is:
Disturbed by the sentencing of Cde Shilla Chisirimunhu on 21st December 2020 disturbing the mood to remember Unity Day commemorations done on 22 December annually.
Concerned by the judgement that is too harsh for a first offender,widow and trade unionist fighting for a genuine plea thus living wage.
Condemns strongly the persecution by prosecution of female teachers raising issues of decent salary and welfare matters.
Touched by the minor dependants left Cde Shilla Chisirimunhu.
Support all comrades and friends offering solidarity to our incarcerated fearless cadre.
Conclusively we loudly call for the release of Cde Shilla Chisirimunhu before Christmas Eve.
Injury to Shilla Chisirimunhu is injury to ARTUZ Membership
