To All Swaziland Vigil Activists (19/03/2020)
Given that, because of the coronavirus, the UK government is asking people not to travel and to minimise social interaction, it has been decided not to continue with the Swazi Vigil for the time being - a difficult decision after over 9 years of continuous protest - until such time it is safer to do so. Therefore, we will start up again when things normalise and you will be advised well in advance. Please see the following link for government Travel Advice on the Corona Virus (COVID-19)
The Vigil co-ordinators know our activists want to continue / increase their activism with the Vigil for a better Swaziland (Eswatini) and will continue to need our support. We are currently looking at ways activists can continue to show their commitment to Swazi Vigil and its human rights work in Eswatini so we can continue to bring hope to Eswatini – possibly some sort of virtual Vigil. We will keep you informed of progress on this. If you have any ideas how this can be done, please let us know.
Please circulate this message to others who may need to be aware that the Vigil is not meeting for the time being. Thank you.
