Democracy doesn’t happen by chance – Official Trailer (2017)


Democracy doesn’t happen by chance. The challenge for me of always having to prove myself. That I can do it, I can do it as a black person. I can do it as a woman, in my own country. Looking at my parents I knew that nothing would change in the next 20 years… …and that nothing would ever happen until the final day. This was the reason for my escape. The regime had the monopoly on media. I knew that people were dying, I had to talk about that. They were not telling the truth. Democracy is not like the Andes, that it’s there forever. It’s like a garden, that you have to water every day. What will you do to safeguard democracy? Global State of Democracy Report, November 2017
