Multilateral Action: A Zimbabwe organization aiming to bring democratic reforms to its country is doling out condoms with a pro-reform slogan on them.

The condoms come from the United States. So the Zimbabwe government believes this has the backing of the U.S. government.

Condom use is highly encouraged to stem the spread of HIV. Many of the condoms sport the slogan "Get Up Stand Up", from the Bob Marley song encouraging people to stand up for their rights. Among the many interpretations of that phrase, the Zimbabwe government fears that it may incite revolution.
