Human Rights Around the World

Human Rights Around the World

This classic program first offers a profile of Father Ricardo Rezende and his work defending peasants in the Brazilian Amazon. To many Rezende is an unsung hero defending the poor though his efforts have also angered many cattle ranchers, which has led to several attempts against his life. Next, the death penalty is an-going controversy in the United States; in some states it is abolished, while in others it is strongly supported; here we hear from a victim's family apposed to the death penalty, saying it doesn't properly measure the anguish of losing a loved one. Next, since 1983 the Sri Lankan Civil War has been ongoing intermittently between the government and a militant organization called the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), who are fighting for the creation of an independent state, which they want named Tamil Eelam. Over 68,000 people have been killed since the conflict began. This segment takes a look behind a number of the assassinations and features author William McGowan (Only Man is Vile). Next, a view of Cambodia as it moves toward democracy features Elizabeth Farnsworth (The NewsHour) and Sidney Jones (Asia Watch). Next, we learn of experimental documentaries in the UK produced by the Black Audio Film Collective from filmmaker John Ahomfrah and Wilfred Little, Malcolm X's brother. Lastly, the Romanian music video, Revolution, ponders whether anything has changed in this country since its revolution in 1989. 02/12DE JSCA 30 min.
