watch / the island president

Mohamed Nasheed – President of the Maldives, founder of the Democratic Party and a real legend pounding out the hard hours to save his nation.

He also holds a record for hosting the world’s first underwater cabinet meeting in order to highlight the danger faced by global warming and climate change.

a documentary was made last year of his tireless efforts to make a change that will save his land and country from a veritable extinction.

and as he so wisely pointed out to fatcats sitting easy State side, ‘Manhattan is as low as the Maldives.’
