I am Gardea Kotee Mayon alias Canon D'BOSZ: why should people vote me as President Liberia Movie Union

1. Team player: Gardea is a team player. This has been proven by people he has worked with over the years. He has shared most of us here events, attended most of our functions, provided spaces for our voices to be heard. He has worked with some of us here, this we can testify.


2. Gardea is trained in the field of filmmaking and he knows what is means to have a struggling industry like ours. He is willing and knows how to breach the gap between some of us not being schooled to filmmaking, thus preparing us for professional filmmaking. 


3. He is not as new in the industry as some of us are thinking. Gardea joined the industry in 2002 back in Ghana, so if u calculate well u know how long he has stayed. 

4. Advocacy and promotion: Gardea has advocated for a 💯 local content on LNTV. Even though it hasn't fully materialized, the rest have been left with the filmmakers to make it successful. Many of u here are witnesses of his numerous messages calling on Liberian producers to bring content at the state broadcaster for airing. He has encouraged most of us here to continue doing what we are doing and help identify our short comings and provided ways forward for many of us in reaching a reasonable standard in the industry. 

5. Canon/Gardea has high on his platform the negative impact of foreign content dominating our market and how we can tackle them. He has plans to further decentralized the movie Union, empowering the guilds and associations. 

6. Gardea has not abused any opportunity. He has barely spend one year in Nigeria, yet he goes to Nigeria to work and teach periodically. He has always shared his experience with us and willing to link any filmmaker to his little contacts he has in Ghana and Nigeria. 


Finally, this brother has been providing training for groups, individuals, county levels, etc. Gardea hopes to launch his platform he has termed: REDEEM in few days from now. Reconciliation/Recruitment, Education, Decentralization, Empowerment, Entertainment/Awards and Marketing(REDEEM). This he believes can work with all of us being part of this great process. He can't work in isolation, that he has acknowledged. Anyone who has followed this young man knows him from how he started and where he is today, humble, cooperative, understanding, reasonable, I can go on and on and on.... Let's support Gardea/Canon and work with him for the growth of this industry.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

Collins, 54, will be the city's first new mayor in 16 years after running a long campaign based in progressive principles.
“The people of Helena have spoken, and I am honored to be able to serve them,” Collins said as the night drew to a close. “I intend to work with commissioners, work for the people of Helena and find what is best for this city.”Collins also sought to praise Smith for his work over the past decade and a half.
“I commend Mayor Smith. He’s done a great job for the city, and I hope to work with him in the future," Collins said. 
At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
The feeling was festive as Collins received a call from U.S. Sen. Jon Tester congratulating Collins on his victory. Victory cigars were passed around the room at the …
