The Solo Sandeng Memorial March, April 14th, 2018, The Gambia, took place to commemorate the prominent activist – of the opposition party, UDP, and youth leader –  and other victims. Sandeng was murdered whilst in custody on this day in 2016, under the old dictatorship of Yahya Jammeh. His death sparked a national outcry and the beginning of the end of Jammeh’s brutal rule – Gambians had decided that enough was enough. Today’s march would never have been possible under the former regime, without there blood being shed and/or lives lost
