Zimbabwe in Context

The post election crisis in Zimbabwe is a manifestation of much deeper, complex issues to do with global capitalism and its vampire-like tendencies. At the root of the problems is the failure of our nationalist governments to deal with these dimensions of the global crisis: food shortages and price hikes; oil speculation; financial meltdowns and higher interest rates. It is only by addressing these issues that we can meet the aspirations of the masses for freedom and decent lives.
