THE EMPIRE IN AFRICA (1:20) Dir - Phillipe Diaz
The rebels who started the civil war in Sierra Leone 15 years ago wanted only one thing: to reclaim the richness of the country from foreign corporations in order to end the exploitation of its people. In response, the international community decided to wage a war on this country with bombs, executions, torture, rigged elections and manipulation of the international media, creating one of the worst humanitarian disasters of the 20th century.
