Original motion text

That this House admires the bravery shown by the Zimbabwean cricket players Andy Flower and Henry Olonga through their act of defiance; notes that by bringing direct attention to the death of Zimbabwean democracy under the rule of Robert Mugabe, they have put their own lives in serious danger; and urges others in the cricketing world to demonstrate solidarity with these brave men by defying Robert Mugabe and shunning his illegal regime.
