Zimbabwe is  hurtling toward a disaster. Hyperinflation and police violence, set against the  backdrop of AIDS and the intractable dictatorship of Robert Mugabe, have brought  the country’s people to the brink of economic and social collapse. On March 11,  opposition activists gathered for a peaceful prayer meeting and called for  Mugabe to resign. Even this peaceful protest was too much for the authorities.  Mugabe’s police descended upon the meeting with tear gas and clubs. In the days  that followed, many of the protestors suffered beatings and torture.

The Open  Society Institute has launched

Eyes on  Zimbabwe

, a new campaign designed to raise awareness of the  humanitarian, democratic, and economic crisis in Zimbabwe. As the human-rights  situation deteriorates and election season draws near, this project combining  video, blog, and social networking features is intended to inform and to  encourage the international community to turn its attention to the crisis in  Zimbabwe—and act.
