Banjul, Gambia, January 10 (Infosplusgabon) - Rights group, Amnesty International, has screened a documentary on the roles played by human rights groups in toppling of ex-president Yahya Jammeh, according to a media release, made available to  Infosplusgabon Tuesday.




The documentary, titled “We Never Gave Up: Stories of Courage in Gambia”, is almost ready and the international rights group plans to premiere it in The Gambia on Wednesday, January 17.


“We are really pleased with the documentary and very excited to launch it. The documentary aims to show the important role played by Human Rights Defenders in Gambia,” the right group said in a statement.


“Our plans include a screening at the Ebunjang Theatre on 17 January 2018 and we would also like to have a panel discussion after the screening. It would be a three  panel member discussion open to the audience for their reactions to the film.”


For over two decades, Gambia has been an affront to protection of human rights.


The international rights groups such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have contributed significantly in putting Jammeh’s regime under the spotlight for abuses.
