watched this today, really inspirational and moving stuffPray the Devil Back to Hellhttp://www.channel4.com/programmes/pray-the-devil-back-to-hell/episode-guide/series-1/episode-1liberian-women-seek-peace-3.jpg

In 2003, the African nation of Liberia was in turmoil; its president Charles Taylor was involved in a vicious civil war with war lords who wanted to take his place. Caught in the middle were innocent civilians who bore the brunt of the violence. One woman, Leymah Gbowee, had had enough and she and her fellow church members, soon to be joined by their female Muslim counterparts, began their protests. Their plan was simple; every day they would gather in the central market of the capital of Monrovia wearing T-shirts and carrying placards simply asking for peace. As their numbers swelled, Taylor reluctantly bowed to the pressure and peace talks were set up in Ghana. From their actions came Taylor's exile and the election in 2005 of Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Africa's first woman head of state.
once these women managed to get the men to agree to come to peace talks in Ghana, they actually physically locked the men in so that an agreement could be signed

2 prison documentaries i watched the other dayFarm_tout-origfilm_02.jpgthe first one is called The Farm: Life inside AngolaAngola is a prison in Lousiana, it was a slave plantation for 2 centuries, and was called Angola cos thats were the slaves were said to have come fromits now a high security prison, an this documentary was filmed in 1997 i believe, follows the stories of around 6 guys, the injustices are mad, specially with the guy who supposedly raped twinshttp://channel.nationalgeographic.com/episode/a-decade-behind-bars-return-to-the-farm-4329/Overview42#tab-Videos/06700_00this link is to the original documentarythe second one is called Maximum Jail - the farm 10 yrs laterhttp://www.channel4.com/programmes/maximum-jail/4od#2930939lookin at the same men, an where they have got to now, really good watch, i watched this one first, an u can see further how them twins are just mockin this black man 100 yrs inside.

In 1997, Jonathan Stack spent a year inside Angola Prison, Louisiana's maximum security prison, where he captured the lives of six men who, because of their sentences, are likely to die in prison.Over the years, Stack has remained in touch with them and the warden, Burl Cain, and this film reconnects with some of the characters, to witness the impact of the passing years on their spirits, body, and hopes. Do family members still visit, have they become hardened as the years roll by and have their memories of life outside faded? This revealing, moving film answers these questions.
The last ten years have been a time of great change and frustration for the four surviving men featured in the decade-old prison documentary, THE FARM: LIFE INSIDE ANGOLA. The cameras first met Bishop Eugene Tanniehill, Ashanti Witherspoon, Vincent Simmons, and George Crawford in Angola's Louisiana State Penitentiary in 1998 as they served out their long sentences. Ten years later, George Crawford finds himself almost exactly where he began his first day in prison, tending the fields of Angola. An older and wiser man, the years since he entered Angola at age 22 have been difficult. He struggles to maintain relationships outside of prison and tries to work towards trustee status. Ashanti Witherspoon was freed from Angola on parole shortly after THE FARM was broadcast. and now works as a motivational speaker and mentor. In 2007, the governor of Louisiana pardoned Bishop Eugene Tanniehill after the Bishop had spent nearly 50 years behind bars. Now living in Brooklyn, New York, the Bishop is adjusting to life on the outside, and testifying to others about his remarkable journey. Vincent Simmons maintains his innocence and continues to fight for a new trial. The victims of the crime for which he was charged have grown and moved on. Louisiana State Penitentiary, led by Warden Burl Cain, has seen many changes over the past decade, including a new Bible college, a prisoner-run television station, and record-low incidents of inmate-on-inmate violence.

Prison docs were deep.Absolute travesty of justice about the evidence that was never considered, and the guys still had 7 appeals rejected.Makes you shudder thinking about being banged up like that.
