Your Call: Human rights activists working for change from Syria, Afghanistan, and China

Sep 28, 2016

 


On the September 28th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with human rights activists from the Middle East and China.

We'll speak with a Syrian activist who helped form an NGO that smuggles video out of ISIS controlled territory, an Afghan activist who faces death threats from the Taliban for teaching girls computer science, and a Chinese activist who is working to expose the harvesting of organs from prisoners of conscience and selling them for profit.

How are these activists fighting oppression and creating social change? Tweet your questions and comments to @yourcallradio and join us live at 10am with me, Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Anastasia Lin, a Chinese-Canadian actress who speaks out against the widespread systematic torture and harvesting of organs from prisoners of conscience

Abdalaziz Alhamza, a Syrian activist who helped found "Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently"

Roya Mahboob, an Afghan tech entrepreneur dedicated to teaching girls computer science
