ISO Zimbabwe appeal

Following his expulsion from the Movement for Democratic Change and ejection from the Zimbabwe parliament, International Socialist Organisation leader Munyaradzi Gwisai (pictured) is contesting the subsequent by-election in his Highfield, Harare constituency. Comrade Gwisai was expelled for publicly opposing the rightwing policies of the MDC, which was set up in 1999 by trade unionists following the militant working class struggles of that year, but came increasingly under the control of business, farming and pro-imperialist interests. He was expelled from parliament under the terms of the anti-defection clause of the constitution, introduced by Robert Mugabe's Zanu-PF in 1996. The ISO - fraternal organisation of the Socialist Workers Party in England and Wales - has issued this call for financial support
