The Empire In Africa

Great documentary about Sierra Leone, but it could be anywhere in the world. This storyline is pretty much the same everywhere in the Third World, with the horrors becoming particularly acute in Africa now with Chinese and Indian imperialists joining the hunt.

And it all comes down to one word: capitalism.

Warning: This film, much to its detriment I believe, contains unbelievably graphic scenes, worse than anything I've ever seen. There are decapitations, heads on pikes, and vultures feeding on cadavers. It shouldn't be attempted on a full stomach.

It really is a shame as this documentary would be more useful without the gore.
