THE OBSERVERS

A show produced with photos, videos and personal accounts from our Observers around the world - all checked by our staff here in Paris. Saturday at 10.15 am Paris time.

Latest update : 2014-12-23

Police harass monks in Cambodia... and humiliate Afghans in Iran

A news show produced exclusively from content provided by amateurs. Photos, videos and personal accounts from our network of Observers around the world - all checked by our staff in Paris. First run Saturdays at 8:10 am Paris time.

Story 1: Cambodia

We begin today in Cambodia. Every year to mark international Human Rights Day, December 10th, Cambodian monks hold a long march to the capital. They do it in part to draw attention especially to the plight of small farmers whose land is often expropriated by business interests. Our Observer is a monk with a degree in political science.

Story 2: Iran

To Iran now… The Islamic Republic has for decades had a huge population of refugees from Afghanistan. They have repatriated nearly a million of them in recent years, but the Afghans keep coming, looking for a better life. Our Observer is an Afghan who grew up in Iran.
