Melbourne activists protested outside Zimbabwe Airlines office on Monday 21 March to call for the release of six Zimbabwe activists who are facing charges of treason with threat of a death penalty.

The activists were arrested while watching a film about the uprising in Egypt and have been tortured in prison.

Forty-five people were arrested but 39 have since been released. The remaining six are still in serious danger.
