Just google search Cambodia, Rwanda, or Tibet in the news and you'll find plenty of current stories of unrest and injustice in these three regions. Today in Cambodia a radio broadcaster was imprisoned without solid evidence for allegedly speaking out against the government, meanwhile the citizens of Rwanda are still plagued by rebel armies and a government that does not fully acknowledge the 1994 genocide that took the lives of nearly a million people. And just this past Saturday in Tibet a man self-immolated in protest of the exile of the Dalai Lama and the Chinese government's totalitarian and oppressive control of the region. As we've said before, all of three of these places lack the basic freedoms that we enjoy in the western world - freedom of speech, expression, and religion.
Each day people in Cambodia, Rwanda, and Tibet suffer human rights abuses and it is our responsibility, the responsibility of those of us who are fortunate enough to live in a democracy, to raise awareness for the on-going plight of these three countries. At 3 Generations we believe that education is a significant tool for inspiring global change and eradicating injustice and we use film to help shed light on these specific situations. We are launching a new website this month and with the launch of the website will come new videos highlighting the past and present situations in these regions. But if you'd like to get a jump start in educating yourself and others on these specific issues, we already have a number of videos housed on our current website featuring survivors' stories. We appreciate your continued support.
