Arturo Commando Interviews Human Rights Activist Matthew McDaniel

Arturo Commando, host of the Arturo Commando Show on Portland Indymedia Web Radio, recently interviewed human rights activist Matthew McDaniel. The interviewed aired live on Sunday (8/28/05), the regular day of Commando's show.

McDaniel spoke at length on his human rights activism in Southeast Asia, specifically with the Akha tribe. They also talked about the United States involvement in Southeast Asia, the US funded drug war, and the vast measures the United States is employing to keep McDaniel and his wife out of the United States. The interview is 45 minutes long and available for download and for streaming. It is a great introduction to the horrors that exist in SE Asia and provides insight on how we can help bring justice to SE Asia.

mayhaps the u.s. government is afraid of what he will find in the us. while they are touting how they are supporting human rights all around the world, they don't want the people of the world to find how little human rights are observed in the u.s.a. kind of hard to complain about your neighbors if your own yard is a mess!
