18 July 2020, a day to remember Mandela

On 18 July each year, the United Nations invites us to mark Nelson Mandela International Day by taking positive action in our communities. Everyone has the ability and responsibility to change the world for the better! Mandela Day is an opportunity for everyone to take action and be a change maker. For the Brazzaville Foundation it is an opportunity to be inspired in terms of mediation:

“If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner’’.

To celebrate this day, we invite you to discover the documentary Plot for Peace. It unveils the story of the "conspiracy" that led to the release of Nelson Mandela. For the first time, heads of state, generals, diplomats, master spies and anti-apartheid fighters reveal how African countries on the "front line" contributed to the end of apartheid. A mysterious French businessman was at the heart of the negotiations that brought peace to southern Africa and paved the way for the new South Africa. His code name: "Monsieur Jacques".

In agreement with the film's producer, we are offering you free access to the screening of the documentary film.
