If Something is Wrong

The invisible suffering of commercial farm workers & their families due to 'Land Reform'



If Something is Wrong is the first in-depth report on the violations committed against farm workers during Zimbabwe's 'land-reform' programme. The report examines the preliminary results of a study conducted by field officers of the General Agriculture and Plantation Workers, Union of Zimbabwe (GAPWUZ). This publication presents statistical evidence alongside first-person testimony to provide a chilling account of the physical and psychological violence perpetrated against Zimbabwe's farm workers.


This timely publication dispels the myth that land reform was undertaken in the name of the poor. When farm workers seek restitution and the perpetrators of violence are held to account, If Something is Wrong will make an invaluable contribution to the quest for justice. - Dale Dore
