Ellen Johnson Sirleaf: There was a Liberian Independence Day celebration in 1985, July 26.  I spoke in Philadelphia on behalf of the Association of Liberia in the United States.   I was a keynote speaker at that celebration, and I said a few things about the government.   I had been home trying to register the party, and I left and came to Philadelphia to make the statement, and then went back with the intent of just forgetting it, since the party was not registered, and going back to Nairobi.  That’s when I was put under house arrest and subsequently was jailed.
