March 26, 2018

After witnessing the rampant corruption, injustice, and poverty in his country of Zimbabwe, pastor-turned-activist Evan Mawarire started the #ThisFlag movement, calling on Zimbabweans to demand Robert Mugabe's resignation. In his talk at the first Oslo Freedom Forum in Johannesburg, he describes the peaceful protests that led to the resignation of President Mugabe and how there is much work that needs to be done to continue rebuilding Zimbabwean democracy.
