The situation in Zimbabwe getting more critical

Reports are coming in that the situation in Zimbabwe getting even more critical. It would seem that the offices of the Christian Student Movement and other church organisations in Harare have been raided by armed police.
Tomorrow here in Geneva the regular Wednesday lunchtime meeting on Zimbabwe will be held. The time for action is here but what action will it be possible to take?
Like Desmond Tutu I too would like to believe in "the triumph of goodness" in this ghastly situation but I fear that things will first get even worse and this will cost the lives of many individuals and lead to the further civil breakdown of an already critically weak country.
this is such a desperately sad time.
