New Rights Blog Focuses On Asian Abuses

I wanted to call your attention to a new human-rights blog written by K. Bjorklund and published by our colleagues over at Radio Free Asia.

"Free For All" will examine human rights issues in Burma, Cambodia, China, Laos, North Korea, Vietnam and the region at large:

We will look at a range of topics including freedom of speech, expression, religion, assembly and the consequences of living without them. We’ll explore what it’s like to live under One-Party Rule and totalitarian-led regimes. We’ll monitor the trials of dissidents and activists. We’ll go in-depth on human trafficking, child slavery and prostitution. We’ll keep an eye on media and press freedom, too. As our blog shines the light on rights abuses, we hope it won’t all be bad news. We’ll also highlight efforts that are being made to end them.

Check it out. It's a great complement to the human rights stories from RFE/RL's broadcast region found here on "Watchdog."
