Kumi Naidoo, Honorary President of Civicus and the Global Call to Action Against Poverty , recorded this video appeal to Avaaz members on 27 January—day seven of his 21-day hunger strike. You can read his latest blog-post here .

The movement for democracy in Zimbabwe has just raised the stakes: hundreds of activists in Southern Africa, including Desmond Tutu, have begun a rolling hunger strike to press for justice. This regional demonstration of commitment is putting real and growing pressure on leaders to demand a fair settlement in Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe has descended to an almost unimaginable state of desperation. Most of Zimbabwe's 11 million people eat one meal a day—or less. But as pressure rises at home, in the region, and around the world, Mugabe's grip on power may be slipping. Click below and join the one day global solidarity fast -(from sun up to sun down)- the more of us that fast the stronger the call for justice and democracy. Watch Kumi Naidoo's video appeal - he will deliver our global message of solidarity to African heads of state gathering in Ethiopia on Sunday, 1 February!
