In Sierra Leone, Mohammed Sidibay was conscripted to be a child soldier during his country's brutal 10 year long civil war in which he lost his parents and siblings. Today, he uses the power of the internet to let the world know about his experiences.
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.
