ARTUZ is deeply disturbed that our members and others taking part in a peaceful demonstration dubbed Pay Day Funerals were picked up by the police as they started demonstrations at Minister of Finance offices in Harare. We are a trade union and we are exempted from seeking permission to demonstrate against our employer under POSA. We condemn these arrests in the strongest terms and we demand the immediate release of our Cdes.
