Barotse Activists Arrested

This is worrying. Barotse. Barotseland is part of western Zambia but many who live there reject the 1964 Barotseland Agreement that made them part of Zambia and a growing movement of people is clambering for their own country. This is not necessarily to side with the secessionists, but arresting people for tearing up copies of a draft constitution they don't agree with isn't a great sign for Zambia's democracy.
