The organisation says the group's members have been arrested while taking part in demonstrations, and that Williams and Mahlangu spent nearly six weeks in detention in a Harare prison for protesting against state-sponsored violence at the time of the Zimbabwe elections in June.

Amnesty's annual Greetings Card Campaign encourages supporters to add a couple of extra Christmas cards to their lists by providing free online packs about people at risk, and addresses and postage information.
