"There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories".
This thread is dedicated to the victims of the past 5 days. Their stories matter. Buried in articles & reports are stories we need to tell #WeWillNotBeSilent
Let's start with the numbers. Remembering always that numbers are merely a numerical representation of real people who have real lives, friends, families, hopes, dreams & a right to human dignity. #WeWillNotBeSilent
844 human rights violations.
12 killed
78 gunshot injuries
At least 242 cases of assault, torture, inhumane & degrading treatment including dog bites
46 cases of destruction of property
466 displacements (under verification).

20 reports of mass violence

Behind every number is a story. Here are a few. This is Isaac's story from @mailandguardian. "They shot one young guy. They shot him dead on the spot. They shot him in the ribs and the bullets came out of his back" #WeWillNotBeSilent
Chitungwiza, Mbare & Epworth lived in terror as they were assaulted, terrorised, dragged from their homes, arrested & denied access to medical attention. #WeWillNotBeSilent

Then there are those who have been denied due process. Arrested under dubious charges. Denied bail. Facing fast tracked court hearings without due process. #WeWillNotBeSilent

Our stories matter. Let's tell them. They can take away the internet but the truth of their brutality cannot be hidden. What is done in the dark should come to the light. #WeWillNotBeSilent
More heart breaking stories continue to emerge. #WeWillNotBeSilent Source @christinalamb thetimes.co.uk/article/zimbab…
