Unwelcome Guest

For those of you who care about the guest list at this Friday's royal wedding in London, there's one invitee who should not be welcome at any gathering, royal or not: Swaziland's absolute monarch, ruler and serial human rights abuser, King Mswati III.

There are quite a few ways you can register you disgust at this man's appearance in London as a guest of the British royal family. Start by signing this online petition: http://positivewomen.org/?page_id=763 - then write to your MP or elected representative - and if you are in London, take part in the peaceful protests organised by Swaziland Vigil against this man's visit.
