Zimbabwe land restoration is a good thing

Mugabe's hardly an Angel - which world leader is? But he is no more a
'loathsome thug' than the white colonists that took hold of his nation and
that he is attempting to oust. 

There's a lot of Bristish taxpayers money gone into making the world hate
Mugabe. An indication that he might be doing something right this time. The
land reform programme in Zim. has been the subject of concerted propaganda
attacks by the UK Foreign Office and MI6. 

And the Movement for Democratic Change is a Western Neo-liberal invention.
Not a grassroots party.  Effectively 'our guys' from a British perspective.

There was a banner on last night's Channel 4 news saying
"The Land Is Now Yours"

Reason for celebration I'd say ;-)

involved with THE LAND IS OURS landrights network (based in the UK ..web
ref. www.thelandisours.org). The list was originally concerned with the
350th anniversary of The Diggers (& still is concerned with their history).
The Diggers appeared at the end of the English Civil war with a mission to
make the earth 'a common treasury for all'. In the spring of 1999 there
were celebrations to remember the Diggers vision and their contribution.
