Probably this is the only video document - published on the net - of the Anya-Nya guerrillas of South Sudan Liberation Front in the First War of South Sudan's Independence (1956-1972).

Giorgio Rapanelli met in the Adodi's village Samuel Lolik Lado and Abdel Rahman Sule. www.giorgiorapanelli.wordpress.com
The legendary Dinka of Southern Sudan are one of the most outstanding groups of pastoralists on the African continent. Covered with ash and up to seven foot six inches tall, the Dinka were referred to as gentle giants by the early explorers. Living in perfect harmony with their cattle, they believe their animals are their essential link to God. During the dry season they move their herds in search of pasture through the vast swamplands of the River Nile, crossing its many tributaries and surviving on the milk of their cattle. Numbering more than two million and one of the largest ethnic groups in Africa, the Dinka are also among the least touched by western ways. Angela Fisher and Carol Beckwith have spent a lifetime studying the peoples of the Horn of Africa, and have published their ...

Read the entire issue devoted to South Sudan: http://www.vice.com/read/saving-south-sudan Late last year, South Sudan's president, Salva Kiir, accused his former vice president, Riek Machar, of attempting a coup d'état amid accusations of rampant corruption within the government. Infighting immediately broke out within the presidential guard, sparking what has now become a brutal tribal and civil war that has pitted Machar's ethnic Nuer loyalists against the majority Dinka, who have sided with Kiir. Machar narrowly escaped assassination, fleeing to the deep bush as Kiir's troops razed his home and killed his bodyguards. And now the world's newest sovereign nation is in imminent danger of becoming a failed state. In February, journalists and filmmakers Robert Young Pelton and Tim Freccia ...

Now they’re sounding the alarm, warning that South Sudan, the world’s newest country, is “on the brink of catastrophe” that could rival the horrors of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. In that conflict, some 800,000 people were slaughtered in the span of just 100 days while the international community watched, unable or unwilling to stop the bloodshed. Former President Bill Clinton has called his decision not to intervene one of the biggest regrets of his presidenc...
