Featuring interviews with several current or former presidents from around the world, such as Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, the film follows The Global Commission on Drug Policy on a mission to break the political taboo over the United States led War on Drugs and expose what it calls the biggest failure of global policy in the last 40 years.

Zimbabwe, once one of the most prosperous nations in Africa, now has the lowest life expectancy and highest inflation rate in the world. Life has become an everyday struggle for survival. The supermarkets in Bulawayo are all empty. According to the shopkeeper, the last time they had bread was “a month ago”. Filming secretly undercover, journalist Ginny Stein captures the desperation everywhere. “There is no water. Nothing, just nothing”, laments ‘Tony’. “Children are hungry, everyone is hungry. Our government is a monster”. Even if there were things in the shops, most people couldn’t afford them. A teacher’s monthly salary now buys the equivalent of one McDonald’s family meal. Malnutrition is taking its toll on people’s health. “Up to 75% of the people coming in have diarrhea and vomiting”, states Dr Thandazani. The fear is that these problems will only get worse. In July, the government forced businesses to half their prices. Now it’s proposing to nationalize 51% of all white-owned businesses. “The economy must be in the hands of Zimbabweans”, states Ambassador Khaya Moyo. But unsurprisingly, manufacturers and retailers feel they’re being made new enemies of the state.

    This was filmed in 2007 ~ it is disgusting that an organisation professing to be unbiased and supporting the side of fairness can publish it now. It makes everything else you do suspect!

  • Robby T, the year this was filmed is irrelevant, the fact is the documentary is valid as the situation on the ground has not changed. The channel here is to highlight what is available and allow people to view them from one place and make up their own minds to do more research. The organisation of the UN, UNHCR, NATO, NGO’s, African Union’s etc…is who you should be criticising having done nothing with the assistance they have access to, the money forwarded to them for humanitarian purposes and to mitigate the military excess of Mugabe.

    This is not correct just go to google and google images of Zimbabwe and you will get a better picture up todate than this outdated vengeful version yes they have made lots of mistakes but Zimbabwe is actally a work in progress and there is lot of positives.
