Cocerning ViolenceThe award winning film documents African struggles vs colonialism. It is based on the writing of Franz Fanon and narrated by Lauryn Hill

The film:

  • Has documentary footage of anti-imperialist liberation movements from the 1970’s onward showing us face-to-face the people who led the liberation struggles in Africa;  It is timely now given the questions movements for change are grappling with
  • Is directed by Göran Hugo Olsson, known for his recent documentary ‘The Black Power Mixtape’;
  • Shows rare interviews and footage from Angola to Zimbabwe, to coercive measures used to stop employees from striking in the Liberian town of Nimba, to women’s participation in the struggle for liberation in Mozambique.

The Fundraiser is to help get a multi-racial delegation of grassroots women and men members to the upcoming international conference, Caring, Survival & Justice vs the Tyranny of the Market, in London, England on November 14-15. It’s rare we have the opportunity as grassroots activists from different movements around the world of coming together to share and plan.  The conference is part of the global campaign for a living wage for all workers including mothers and other caregivers.
