Talkshow with Morgan Tsvangirai at De Rode Hoed

In November 2004, after being forced to stay at home for two years because of vague charges of high treason, Morgan Tsvangirai went on a European trip to find international support for the cause of the MDC. At the time of the talkshow the MDC had not yet decided whether to join the upcoming elections or not.
