The 'team' that went in through the 'secure gates' of Downing Street, got to spend some time within the confines of the domain of the Prime Minister - and next door the Chancellor. The petitioners were subjected to intense ID checks, with bags and equipment X-ray'd. The petition itself was signed by 5 CCC members and Chief F Ndiweni as the petitioners, with several other supporters signing the overall written document.

The importance of these interactions at the top level of British politics cannot be over emphasised, Last year we managed to secure vital discussions with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, due to a similar petition presentation. This time around we anticipate further traction in the UK, EU, UN arena's - to see if democracy could be attempted within Zimbabwe!
