The Zimbabwe Children of War Liberators Association says the ongoing anti-sanctions programme, which has seen many Zimbabweans appending their signatures on the petition, is the loudest call the country has made in denouncing the vicious illegal sanctions regime.
The ongoing programme, in which many Zimbabweans from across the social spectrum are signing the anti sanctions petition, has been hailed by children of war liberators, saying it is a clear demonstration that Zimbabweans are fed up with the global arrogance demonstrated by the west through the imposition of the illegal sanctions.
The President of the Zimbabwe Children of War Liberators Association, Lawrence Manyezu said it is time for all Zimbabweans to unite and speak with one voice as the evil sanctions have caused untold suffering on the majority.
â€œThis is a good programme as we want to demonstrate that we are tired of the sanctions. As young people, we are the worst affected, no jobs,â€ he said.
The organisations Secretary General, Leonard Makombe blasted the MDC-T for failing to participate in a national programme, saying this shows that the formation is working in cahoots with the west in the regime change agenda.
â€œWe want Mr Tsvangirai to participate in this national campaign. His partyâ€™s silence is worrisome, it only confirms that they are working with the west in trying to topple the Zanu-PF government,â€ Makombe said.
The National Anti-Sanctions Petition Campaign was launched by the Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe on the 2nd of March and was decentralised to all provinces and districts.
At least 2 million signatures are expected to be appended on the petition to show the rest of the world that Zimbabwe is united against the imposition of the illegal embargo.
