Disappeared: The Women Gone Missing in Afghanistan's Prisons

First hand reports from Afghanistan, Cambodia, Estonia, Lebanon and the German village of Oberammergau. Taliban promises to respect women's rights seem to be fading. Reports have emerged of Afghan women being arrested for alleged “moral crimes,” and thrown in prison without charge. Ramita Navai managed to get into one of the prisons where these women are being held. Cambodia has some of the greatest Buddhist sites in the world, but many of these have suffered at the hand of looters. As Celia Hatton discovered, some of this theft has occurred very recently. Estonia is attempting to win over its Russian-speaking minority. One third of the country speak Russian as their first language, and in some regions, almost everyone does. Could Vladimir Putin use an alleged attack on Russian speakers' rights as an excuse to intervene? Estonia's innovative strategy is to offer them a series of fun events in the Estonian language, which Lucy Ash went to watch. The politics of Lebanon are complex, and often bitterly divided. Lebanon held an election last weekend, against a backdrop of economic collapse. Leila Molana-Allen found many voters hoping that this time round, change may be afoot, although predictable cynicism was also evident. This year, there is a new donkey for the Oberammergau Passion Play. In a tradition going back to the Seventeenth Century, two thousand residents of this small village in Bavaria present the tale of Jesus Christ and the crucifixion, for one season, every decade. Obergammerau has once again welcomed spectators to what is a unique performance. Adrian Bridge went to meet the cast.

Are Chinese Manufacturers Rerouting Solar Panels to Avoid U.S. Tariffs?

Leslie is joined by Scott Paul, President of the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM), a partnership established by some of America's leading manufacturers and the United Steelworkers union. For roughly 15 years, Mr. Paul and AAM have worked to make American manufacturing a top-of-mind issue for voters and our national leaders through effective advocacy, innovative research, and a savvy public relations strategy. Leslie and Scott discuss the Department of Commerce's investigation into whether Chinese manufacturers are re-routing solar panels through four Asian countries in an attempt to avoid U.S. tariffs. Here is more background on the subject from Scott's colleagues at AAM, Elizabeth Brotherton-Bunch and Matthew McMullan: The investigation came about after California solar panel maker Auxin Solar filed a petition with the Commerce Department asking for the investigation, arguing imports from Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand were actually made in China. Auxin also had support from Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle and in the Senate and House, with Ohio Sens. Rob Portman (R) and Sherrod Brown (D) writing to Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo:     “As we understand it, these operations use raw materials, labor, capital investment, and research and development from China. Moving to a third country to assemble a product with inputs from the country subject to the original AD/CVD order is textbook circumvention. (AD/CVD stands for Antidumping and countervailing duties, which are intended to offset the value of dumping and/or subsidization, thereby leveling the playing field for domestic industries injured by such unfairly traded imports). As you know, if legitimate circumvention allegations go unaddressed, entire domestic industries and thousands of American manufacturing jobs are at risk.” It all seemed pretty straightforward; Commerce would investigate the claims and issue a decision. If you follow this blog, you know that these sorts of trade cases happen all the time. But ever since Commerce moved forward with the probe, solar importers have done a full court press to convince everyone that the investigation would spell doom for the industry. There have been many, many many stories in recent weeks arguing that the solar industry is now “frozen” because of the investigation and that it will hinder the Biden administration's climate goals. They've also argued that shipments have already slowed because of the investigation. It all strikes us as somewhat odd, given that no decision has been made (and thus no new tariffs have been issued). What do these folks have to fear? That's the argument that Auxin CEO Mamun Rashid made in a recent interview with E&E News. “If there's been no cheating going on, there's absolutely nothing to worry about,” he said. “If I'm a manufacturer overseas, or I'm an importer, and I know I wasn't participating in any kind of circumvention, I wasn't cheating, I don't have anything to worry about. I don't understand why the concern is there.” Rashid also rejected the argument that tariffs, if they are eventually placed on these products, will harm the industry and limit progress on reducing climate emissions. He said:     “I can only speak to my experience. In the last 14 years, we have seen tariffs being instituted and we've seen the predictions that were made on what would happen if the tariffs were put in place. And it has never materialized. Deployments have continued to grow double digits and outperform predictions, even prior to tariffs being imposed, and pricing has continued to fall. I have no reason to believe it'll be any different this time.” So why is SEIA mounting such an aggressive campaign against this investigation? Well, solar is an obviously important source of green energy and therefore plays a huge role in our national climate goals, but it's also an industry, and a business. And as a trade association representing lots of importers it's performing its primary function: Protecting their profits. It could also be because some of its member companies are the same ones that were originally targeted by the tariffs that these imports are accused circumventing, as the Prospect points out, and that some indeed source from suppliers that use slave labor in China's Xinjiang province — where the government has forced an estimated 1 million Uyghur and other typically Muslim ethnic groups into detention camps, according to researchers and news organizations. And this big push could also be because it could be gearing up to take a run at overturning a ban on imports made by that labor that's set to take effect in about six weeks. WEBSITEs: 1.

Vietnam along with several other countries have decided to drop pretests for fully vaccinated visitors. That makes entry to Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam relativeily easy to enter now with no required pretests for fully vaccinated travelers. It's now possible to have an extended stay in Southeast Asia with the least amount of restrictions since the pre-pandemic days of traveling. Vietnam has yet to authorize stays longer than 30 days but if you were looking to spend more time in Vietnam it would be very easy to break up your long stay with trips to Cambodia, Thailand, or even Laos allowing you to start a new 30 day eVisa cycle in Vietnam.

The party's existence was kept secret until 1977, and no one outside the CPK knew who its leaders were (the leaders called themselves “Angkar Padevat”). While the Khmer Rouge was in power, they set up policies that disregarded human life and produced repression and massacres on a massive scale.

Tune in TOMORROW, 5/13/22 at 7:00am EST for a new episode of The 13th Avenue Media Show featuring CEO and Founder of West Coast Medical Resources, LLC, Randy Ware! ▪︎ ▪︎ ▪︎ ABOUT OUR GUEST: Randy Ware is CEO and Founder of WestCMR, LLC, the world's leading healthcare industry surplus surgical supply company. After facing health challenges with his newborn son in 1991, Randy's perspective as to what mattered most was forever changed. His family's experience with the hospital that saved his son's life became the silver lining that inspired his future vision for WestCMR. In 1997, Randy founded WestCMR as the first company to create a niche marketplace to allow hospitals and surgery centers to manage inventory sustainably, by capitalizing upon surplus products that would normally have gone to landfills. From its headquarters in Clearwater, Florida, WestCMR employs a national and international sales team that buys and sells throughout the U.S. and over 65 countries, while maintaining its sustainable mission as a zero landfill company. With all the success WestCMR has enjoyed as a company, it is the ups and downs in Randy's life that inspired a passion for corporate and personal giving back that never wanes. Since 2013, Randy has served on the board of the Children's Dream Fund, where he has raised half-a-million dollars to fulfill dreams for children with life-threatening illnesses. In November of 2019, he took three WestCMR team members Cambodia, to join 90 other volunteers from around the world to participate in a Global Village build with Habitat for Humanity. Through Randy's life-long commitment to pay his passion forward, he personally charges his family of companies with serving the community and partnering with charitable organizations that are making a difference in people's lives. As a result, WestCMR proudly donates more than 1% of its annual revenue to charity. #clearwater #westcmr #lucky13 #clearwaterbusiness #mediacompany --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/13th-ave-media/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/13th-ave-media/support

Amid international anxiety at Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Finland confirms its wish to join the NATO alliance. We hear from our correspondent in the Finnish capital, Katya Adler, talk to the former Finnish prime minister Alexander Stubb and seek a sense of Russia's likely reaction from Moscow-based analyst Dmitry Suslov. Also in the programme: the government of Cambodia calls on the UK to return treasures looted from their country's temples; North Korea's first admission of a coronavirus outbreak; and why a lack of suitable drug research is killing women and children in Britain.

While some countries fight to reclaim antiquities that were stolen centuries ago, Cambodian investigators are dealing with far more recent thefts. Many of the country's prized treasures were taken by looters in the 1980s and 1990s and then sold on to some of the world's most prestigious museums, including the British Museum and the Victoria & Albert museum. At the centre of many of the sales was a rogue British art dealer. Celia Hatton joins the Cambodian investigative team and gains unprecedented access to looters who have become government witnesses. The Phnom Penh government has now launched a legal campaign in the UK to get some of its most prized statues back. For many Cambodians these are not simply blocks of stone or pieces of metal, they are living spirits and integral to the Khmer identity. The Gods, they say, are cold and lonely in foreign collections and they want to come home. Producer: John Murphy Producer in Cambodia: Eva Krysiak

Tonlé Sap is one of Southeast Asia's, if not one of the world's, natural wonders. Between the dry and wet seasons, the lake expands almost six times in size to cover an area the size of Kuwait. The flows are so strong that the Tonlé Sap river actually reverses course, with water from the lake flowing into the Mekong river. And that means the lake is one of the most biodiverse in the world, with fish populations that have sustained fishing communities for generations. But the lake is currently stressed by climate change, overfishing, and hydropower damming. Abby Seiff's Troubling the Water: A Dying Lake and a Vanishing World in Cambodia (U of Nebraska Press, 2022) tells the stories of those who live along the lake's shores, and how they try to keep their lives and livelihoods going. In this interview, Abby and I talk about Tonlé Sap, how it's changed in recent years–and what the lake's communities tell us about what it means to be a climate refugee.

Energy, and who controls it, has emerged as a major issue in Southeast Asia in recent years. Nowhere is this issue more evident than in the Mekong region, where China's influence on the politics of energy has been steadily on the rise under the umbrella of its Belt and Road Initiative. China's investments have supported Cambodia in being able to meet its increasing domestic energy demand, and are also helping Laos to fulfil its vision of becoming the ‘battery of Asia'. Meanwhile, renewed US commitment and additional funding to the Mekong region has been welcomed. Nevetheless, whether that translates into viable alternatives to Beijing's massive trade and investment, and growing influence, remains to be seen. Joining Dr Natali Pearson on SSEAC Stories, Dr Andrea Haefner unpacks the role of Chinese energy politics in Laos and Cambodia, and reflects on the impact of the recent economic downturn caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. About Andrea Haefner: Dr Andrea Haefner is a Lecturer at the Griffith Asia Institute and has over 15 years of experience working with academia, government, and international organisations across Australia, Germany, and Southeast Asia, especially the Mekong region where she lived and worked for four years in Laos. Andrea's research focuses on transboundary river basin, geopolitics, and governing civil society in the Mekong region. Besides publishing several peer-reviewed articles, Andrea's book on Negotiating for Water Resources - Bridging Transboundary River Basins was published with Routledge in 2016. In addition to focusing on impact research and policy relevance, Andrea also works on several projects on the ground and regularly leads capacity building programs.

Jason talks about the new regime for e-visas. He also explains which airlines are preparing to return to Laos - and which new routes might be developed.
