The activists who were grabbed by cops from Harare Gardens have been charged with disorderly conduct.
The activists, including Patson Dzamara and Linda Masarira, have been asked to pay fines for the offence.
“They said we must pay a fine and we refused. We cannot pay a fine for seating on a lawn in a public park. We cannot allow these people to treat us in a willy nilly manner,” said Dzamara.
The activists are now spending the night in cells and will appear in court tomorrow.
