Tesco Boycotts Zimbabwe: “Every Little Helps”

Tesco UK and Ireland has said that it will not stock produce from Zimbabwe “as long as the political crisis persists in that country”. This is a welcome first step towards the isolation of the regieme in Zimbabwe more need to join in to make the point a lot more acute.

Tesco say that they don’t stock a lot of goods from Zimbabwe but, this isn’t the most factor it is the symbolism of rejecting anything to do with the currupt governement that if adopted more widely will be made more explicitly. It is fair to say that this action may be hurting the producers of the products who may be innocent of the crimes of Mugabe but, getting them help in other ways will be a lot more effective overall.
