The well known Yemeni activist and journalist talked about the government repression being carried out in Yemen in the name of the "War on Terror" and about the ongoing struggle for freedom of the expression, including the recent jailings of journalists.
This interview first aired live by phone from Yemen on September 23, 2010 as part of a larger interview with Pardiss Kabriaei, staff member of the Center for Constitutional Rights. This version is presented for easier listening and has been edited for sound quality. Tawakul Karman has been an activist for the rights of women, and democratic rights in Yemen for many years. She was the first to start sit downs in what is now called Liberty Square. She has been jailed repeatedly by the current regime in Yemen bringing thousands into the streets to demand her freedom.
