A Deeper Look
program date: 
Thu, 09/23/2010

The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded today (10/7/2011) to three activist women from Africa & the Middle East: Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee and Tawakul Karman.

Linda Olson-Osterlund spoke with Tawakul Karman in September 2010 on A Deeper Look. 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.

The conversation also included Pardiss Kebriaei, staff attorney for the Center For Constitutional Rights, who spoke about the CCR lawsuit to end targeted assassinations.
