Zim’s #ThisFlag Protest Leader Faces Potential Death Sentence – #FreePastorEvan.

Zimbabwean Pastor, Evan Mawarire has been denied bail and charged by police with “subverting a constitutional government.” In other words he is now facing treason, which according to the Zimbabwe Constitution means he faces a possible death sentence if convicted.

The #ThisFlag campaign started in April when the 39-year-old Mawarire took to his Facebook page to voice his concerns in a video, captioned with the hashtag #ThisFlag, that’s been viewed 150 000 times and counting. The hashtag spread quickly and last week resulted in a shutdown of shops across Zimbabwe’s major cities. Zimbabwean journalist John Cassim is in Harare following the story as it develops.
