Mohamed Nasheed - Island President

Thursday, Mar 29, 2012

After years as a political prisoner, Mohamed Nasheed was elected President of the Republic of the Maldives in 2008 in the first democratic election in that Indian Ocean nation's history. Trained as a marine scientist, President Nasheed emerged as one of the leading voices of small island nations threatened by sea level rise and climate change. He was forced out of office in February 2012 in what may have been a coup orchestrated by the repressive forces he defeated in 2008.

President Nasheed is coming to New York for the premier of a film about him, The Island President, which will be showing in theaters across the country.
