The December 12th Movement, a black human rights organisation based, in New York City, United States of America, has organised a rally in solidarity with President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who is on a mission to woo foreign capital to Zimbabwe in a bid to revive the country’s economy.

An unidentified member of  the December 12th Movement said the purpose of the solidarity rally was to show that ‘black folks’ in the New York area support the policy of land reform, the New Dispensation, and are welcoming President Mnangagwa to their city.

“We are demanding that the United States of America end the sanctions against Zimbabwe. That the country be allowed to develop in the best manner that it can,” said the December 12th Movement member.

The December 12th Movement is known for organising  political actions leading toward local and national mass mobilisations on racism, self-determination, reparations, quality health care, housing, criminal justice and education.

Zimbabwe has been reeling under the effects of the US imposed sanctions under ZIDERA since 2001, which resulted in the economy’s downward spiral as the country failed to attract investors and fresh capital.
