A woman crosses the street in front of minibus taxis in HarareBy MacDonald Dzirutwe HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabweans on Wednesday largely ignored a strike called by political activists to protest against the government's handling of growing discontent and economic woes, with organisers accusing state security of intimidating people and businesses. Public anger is rising in the southern African nation where citizens have in the last two months used social media to organise demonstrations against President Robert Mugabe, including the largest strike since 2007 on July 6. On Wednesday, businesses, including banks, informal markets and shops were open, ignoring the strike call by social media groups #ThisFlag led by pastor Evan Mawarire and #Tajamuka, whose leader is in custody on public violence charges.
