Undermined community in Zambia

The film is describing how a disempowered community through linking up with the Zambian Vicepresident hereby receive some degree of recognition of their situation and lack of access and representation in the political system.

It is interesting and inspiring how the community has organised themselves and is able to articulate their case and through a gatekeeper raise their voice at highest political levels. The question is how they could have used evidence building tools and approaches more? Alliance creation? And what could be an advisable next step?
