Downtown Development Authority, a semi-autonomous agency, released this report.  Source:

Thor Halvorssen on Evan Mawarire’s Release

by Chris Holden - March 4th, 2017

Thor Halvorssen is the founder of the Human Rights Foundation. After his father was imprisoned by the Venezuelan government because he uncovered corruption there, his mother was shot during a protest over his father’s arrest. Therefore, it only seems natural for Thor to be an outspoken supporter of human rights around the globe.

One of the people that Thor is proud to support is pastor Evan Mawarire of Zimbabwe.

This pastor first rose to prominence in his country when he took to social media calling for changes in human rights under the rule of President Robert Mugabe. His #ThisFlag movement led to a work stoppage in the country.

Evan had left the country in July with his pregnant wife and two daughters. His youngest daughter was born in November. In early February, Evan returned to Zimbabwe where he was arrested. Many feel that the reason that Evan has become so outspoken is that he fears that his daughters will be unable to get a good education under the present system.

On February 8, 2017, a judge released him on a $300 bond saying he posed no risk of fleeing the country. Since he was released, Evan has become an outspoken critic of conditions within the prison. He says that it really upset him that his appearance in court had to be once delayed because there was no fuel to get the prison vehicle there. He describes the lack of privacy in using the commode as being a problem. Evan also says that the lack of hot water is a sanitation issue.

After being released, Evan says that the whole country is like being in prison. He says that people living in the country are not free as the government makes everyone answerable to it.

Thor is still hopeful that the pastor who may be toying with the idea of running for president will be able to speak at his Oslo Freedom Forum in May. This three-day event is attended by human rights advocates and journalists from around the world. Before his arrest, Evan was to be one of the keynote speakers at this conference. for more.

The Beauty Of America

by Chris Holden - February 24th, 2017

Doug Levitt is doing something very important with “The Greyhound Diaries”. Aside from making a living by doing what he enjoys, something most of us only dream of, he is making us all aware that we have more similarities than differences. You can see this in the pictures of travelers that he puts on his website. While there are obvious physical differences, there is a commonality that runs through everybody: They are all poor. Or at least what the rest of us may consider poor by financial measures. What this commonality does is bring people together in a way that is not really talked about in the living rooms across America. While the rest of us are concerned with paying our bills, working our jobs and keeping up with the Jones’s, there is a large cross section of America who live hand to mouth and day by day. They know more about the importance of friendship and helping one another out than the people who are busy running in the rat race.


Life is different on the road in a Greyhound bus and in the bus stations across America. Some might say it is a shiftless life, but others would argue that it is a life free of the stress and worry that the 9 to 5’ers have to put up with. You can see it in the faces and in the eyes of the travelers that Doug Levitt has photographed. They may be “down” by others’ standards, but they are not out. They are simply out there, doing what they do, with smiles on their faces and, for the most part, stress free. It is not a life for everyone, that’s for sure, but for the people who have made it their life……they stick together, they don’t argue about petty subjects and they get to see the beauty of America every day. This too is self evident after you learn more about Doug Levitt and what he is doing out there.
