Where does ACT stand on Zimbabwe?

Rodney Hide put this on his blog:

Does it strike anyone else as odd that National and Labour are opposing totalitarianism and socialism in Zimbabwe by making it illegal for New Zealanders to travel where they choose and play sport with whom they like?

So, does ACT thus think that the New Zealand Cricket team should go to Zimbabwe?
While it would be up holding a contract, which is required for capitalism and is thus an ideological core value for ACT, it is supporting a non-free regime. I suppose ACT is desperate enough to cling onto any issue, and as nearly every other party is against the tour (haven't heard what the Maori Party think) the could be going for the pro-tour vote.
Trying to create political mileage by ignoring human rights abuses is a sad sad state of affairs.
