In 2008 Mike Campbell - one of the few remaining white farmers in Zimbabwe to have held fast in the face of the violent 'Land Reform' programme - took the unprecedented step of challenging President Robert Mugabe before the SADC International Court (SADC - South African Development Community) to defend his farm, which is also home to 500 black workers and their families, and to charge Mugabe and his government with racial discrimination and with violations of Human Rights.

Excellent Documentary made by some very brave people
8 October 2010 | by rggreavesSee all my reviews

It was a refreshing change to see such an accurate and vivid portrayal of life under Robert Mugabe. The almost comic dialog between Campbell and the son of a Government Minister who felt entitled so simply take the farm showed how ridiculous the whole situation in Zimbabwe has become. A once prosperous and thriving country now gripped by terror, sickness and starvation. Bravo to Mike Cambell for his lonely stand for what is right. There are millions of bitterly oppressed Africans in Zimbabwe who can only benefit from the stand of Mike Campbell and the widespread showing of this masterpiece documentary.
