THE AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL EVENT
An unmissable chance to meet Emmanuel Jal who was forced to become a child soldier with the rebel army in Sudan's bloody civil war, then was put into battle in Ethiopia. He finally escaped, told his story in War Child, and now spreads messages of peace and reconciliation with his unique style of gospel rap.
