.Dear TSR Friends,
We would like to let you know about a documentary that, although in a very different region of the world than Estonia, shares a similar story of empowerment with The Singing Revolution .
Pray the Devil Back to Hell chronicles the remarkable story of courageous Liberian women who came together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their shattered country.
Thousands of women — ordinary mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters, both Christian and Muslim — came together to pray for peace and then staged a silent protest outside of the Presidential Palace. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions, they demanded a resolution to the country’s civil war. Their actions were a critical element in bringing about an agreement during the stalled peace talks.
A story of sacrifice, unity and transcendence, Pray the Devil Back to Hell honours the strength and perseverance of the women of Liberia. Inspiring, uplifting, and most of all motivating it is a compelling testimony of how grassroots activism can alter the history of nations.
The Singing Revolution and Pray the Devil Back to Hell are both examples of how change can be created through nonviolence and perseverance. We are partnering with the filmmakers to help spread the word about both of these powerful stories.
