Do You Enjoy Your Freedom?

During a small protest in Pretoria, the question a protester asked of South African President Mbeki was quite simple, according to the independent news outlet, IOL.

"Mr Mbeki, Sir, do you enjoy your freedom? If so, please help us to get ours too."

The protest was aimed at applying pressure to the South African government to do more to help oust Robert Mugabe from power in neighboring Zimbabwe. Despite Mbeki's assurances to President Bush, the soft diplomatic approach championed by South Africa hasn't resulted in anything resembling reforms or real talks about reform in Zimbabwe.

Instead, the situation grows steadily towards a government collapse and possible civil war as more than 2 million people will need to be fed by international aid this year.

Yes, Mr. Mbeki, what will you do to help the people of Zimbabwe find freedom from Robert Mugabe?

Read the story.
