10 Amazing Women Who Led Rebellions

 “Male revolutionaries such as Che Guevara have gone down as heroes for leading rebellions against “the Man.” But forgotten by history are the women who took on far greater powers than Fulgencio Batista.

Jonestown- The Life and Death of Peoples Temple

19 Jul

by Elissa Haney
FULL VIDEO:

Jim Jones started out with good intentions….”Almost three decades ago an unusual series of events led to the deaths of more than 900 people in the middle of a South American jungle. Though dubbed a “massacre,” what transpired at Jonestown on November 18, 1978, was to some extent done willingly, making the mass suicide all the more disturbing.

The Jonestown cult (officially named the “People’s Temple“) was founded in 1955 by Indianapolis preacher James Warren Jones. Jones, who had no formal theological training, based his liberal ministry on a combination of religious and socialist philosophies.” Infospace
