How commies deal with "dissent"

Police torture union chiefs after protests in Zimbabwe

POLICE in Zimbabwe severely tortured a dozen trade unionists held for trying to stage a protest over poor wages, leaving some with fractured limbs and a top official in hospital, lawyers told a court.

Riot police arrested scores of members of the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) on Wednesday, disrupting a planned march in the latest clampdown on opposition by President Robert Mugabe's government.

The United States today demanded the immediate release of the men following their first court appearance yesterday...

In other Zimbabwe news, they're essentially admitting that their agriculture policy was a failure.

This is no excuse for aparthied but we were told that the troubles of Africa will disappear with colonialism. Nobody starved in Rhodesia and the country is less free than ever. The left has created a mess and said nothing about Muggabe the thug.

The sole focus of the left is with fake indigenous people who are prone to violence.
