Roots of the freedom struggle: land in Zimbabwe

Dear Friends,

I have pleasure in inviting you to take part in our 1996 Dayschool on Saturday
12 October in Conway Hall, London WC1.  Our theme this year picks up on issues
which are fundamental to Zimbabwe's history and freedom struggle - and
remembering that this year marks the 100th anniversary of the first Chimurenga
uprising.

Zimbabwean historian and writer Professor Ngwabi Bhebe, from the University of
Zimbabwe, has been invited to open the day's programme with a keynote address on
the land issue in Zimbabwe's history.

Chartwell Dutiro and Kristyan Robinson of Spirit Talk will lead a full-day
hands-on mbira music workshop, with special emphasis this year on songs of the
land, farming and food.

Talking about food - as usual you can expect a delicious Zimbabwean lunch from
the Zimbabwe Women's Co-op, who will also lead a demonstration workshop on
Zimbabwean food and food products, traditional and contemporary.

Have you ever bought Zimbabwean mangetout peas or baby sweetcorn at your
supermarket? Chenzira Mutasa of the Zimbabwe Women's Co-op will lead a workshop
discussion on the globalisation of the food trade and how it affects
Zimbabweans.

Alan Mills will explain how satellite data can be used to monitor Zimbabwe's
natural resources of land and vegetation, and to forecast weather patterns.
Frances Cleaver will examine the connections between control of water resources
and power structures in rural Zimbabwe.

The programme will also feature a debate on debt and Zimbabwe, resourced by
Jubilee 2000 and the Debt Crisis Network. And there will be a full programme of
activities for children, plus a creche for the youngest ones, organised by Jane
Llewellyn.

Conway Hall is partly accessible to wheelchairs.

Registration for the Dayschool costs 10 pounds per person (waged), 5 pounds
(unwaged), 2 pounds for participants under 16, and/or registered for the
children's programme or creche.

Register at the door or in advance to Richard Brown, BZS Dayschool, 26 Cornwall
Gardens, Brighton BN1 6RJ (makes cheques out to 'Britain Zimbabwe Society').

For further details of the Dayschool programme and speakers, contact Alison
Parsloe, c/o Oxfam Asia Desk, 274 Banbury Road, Oxford OX2 7DZ  (Tel
