New Report: How International Sanctions on North Korea Harm Women & Prevent Humanitarian Aid
A new report shows that international sanctions imposed on North Korea are having adverse consequences on humanitarian aid and economic development in the country, with a disproportionate impact on women. The report, titled “Human Costs and Gendered Impact of Sanctions on North Korea,” was commissioned by Korea Peace Now! and produced by a panel of independent experts. Its authors say it is the first comprehensive assessment of the human impact of sanctions against North Korea. According to the report’s findings, existing U.N. mechanisms to exempt humanitarian-related items from sanctions have failed to prevent negative impacts, and delays and funding shortfalls may have resulted in the deaths of thousands of people. We speak with the report’s authors, Joy Yoon and Henri Féron, as well as Christine Ahn, the international coordinator of the campaign Korea Peace Now! She is also the founder and executive director of Women Cross DMZ, a global movement of women mobilizing to end the Korean War.
How Investigative Journalism Sparked a Revolution in Puerto Rico & Brought Down Gov. Rosselló
As anti-government protests rage across the globe, from Chile to Hong Kong to Iraq, we look back at this year’s historic demonstrations in Puerto Rico that ousted Governor Ricardo Rosselló in July. The protests were propelled in part by the reporting of the Center for Investigative Journalism in Puerto Rico, which published hundreds of pages of chats between Rosselló and other government officials. The exposé was known as “RickyLeaks.” The leaked documents exposed rampant corruption within the Puerto Rican government and revealed Rosselló had mocked victims of Hurricane Maria. The messages also included violently misogynistic and homophobic remarks. We speak with three members of the Center for Investigative Journalism in Puerto Rico: executive director Carla Minet, journalist Luis Valentín and development director Rigel Lugo.
