Nelson Mandela gets Monument

His lifetime fight for freedom pays off with monument.

Life in Prison

Nelson's actions resulted in a lot of jail time. In fact his protests they got so out of control the government wanted him to suffer the death penalty. But instead they gave him life in prison plus 5 years. This means that even if he was put on parole he would still have to serve five more years. His life in prison was cut short when a new president was elected and released him from prison.

Freedom for All

Nelson Mandela was a freedom fighter till he died. When he finally got his point across from the government he went beyond just blacks rights in South Africa, he continued to fight for human rights everywhere.
