A River In Peril

Radio Free Asia

 The Mekong has long been a river of empires, with distant rulers imposing their visions on local peoples whose fate is inextricably linked to its flow. The river is the lifeblood of more than 60 million people who depend on it for food, transportation and commerce. An RFA cameraman travels more than 2,700 miles down the Mekong, and records his interactions with the people whose lives depend on this mighty river.

'It's not OK' is a collection of portraits of Asian women caught in the struggle for human rights in their communities, some willingly, others forced by circumstances. Each is a testimony to the courage and determination of these women.
