  • Syrian Refugees Escape to Turkey Dozens of Syrians were seen waiting by the Turkish border on June 15, escaping the brutal crackdown of President Bashar Al-Assad's security forces. Around 8500 Syrian refugees have been provided shelter camps on Turkey's border. Refugee camps have been made available in Turkey's Hatay province, across from the Syrian city of Jisr al-Shughour. Turkey is preparing to receive more refugees in the east along the 800 km Syrian-Turkish border. Syrian rights groups have said an estimated 1300 civilians have been killed, since the uprising began in March this year. By: Ikram AL Yacoub Al Arabiya with Agencies
  • Turkish Authorities Sets Up Fifth Camp for Syrian Refugees Turkish authorities built a fifth campsite on June 14 ready for another influx of Syrian refugees as their numbers rose above 8538. Some of the tent camps were already full although they were extended on June 13. Refugees who have fled Syria face anxiety and boredom as they wait around for shelter. Thousands of others are living rough in rural areas just inside Syria under bad conditions. A night of heavy rainstorms worsened the condition of the thousands of Syrians sheltering in the hills within sight of the Turkish border, hoping to escape the advance of Syrian forces towards them. Families on Tuesday tried to dry rain-sodden blankets by hanging them on tree branches, children washed in rain water, and people lay under plastic sheets.

  • Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars ++ Discussion on ++ Directed by Zach Niles and Banker White (USA) The remarkable story of a group of six Sierra Leonean musicians who come together to form a band while living in a West African refugee camp. First-time filmmakers Zach Niles and Banker White started SodaSoap Productions in 2002 in support of their the documentary film 'Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars' (2006). "SodaSoap" comes from the title of an All Stars song that encourages people to take pride in what they can produce on their own. It has become a guiding artistic theme for the duo, who are recipients of a 2008 Creative Capital Foundation Grant for "We Own TV," a collaborative media project that promotes self-expression through visual media by bringing filmmaking education and equipment to Sierra Leonean youth. Project participants will collaboratively create and produce their own independent media which will be distributed via "We Own TV's" broadcast and online partners. Zach and Banker also continue to work closely with their friends "Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars" who, since the release of the film have become international stars and strident advocates for refugee rights. The SodaSoap Productions schedule is full as planning is under way to record a new album with the band later this year and documentary projects in Haiti and Cuba are currently in production.

  • Asian Refugee Caught in "Old White Man" Disguise Canadian officials are demanding a probe into what border guards say was an "unbelievable" security breach that let an Asian man in his early 20s bluff his way aboard a Hong Kong-to-Vancouver flight by disguising himself as an aging white man. The unidentified Asian showed up at Hong Kong International Airport on Oct. 29 and traded boarding passes with a white, 55-year-old American in order to board an Air Canada flight later that night, authorities said. But that doesn't explain how he got past airport passport control or Air Canada officials at the gate, officials in Ottawa said. Investigators suspect he finessed the checkpoints after putting on a silicon head and face mask that made him look like an old white man, complete with glasses, a brown cardigan and a brown leather cap. Canadian media said such masks go for about $1000 on the Internet. But to get aboard he had to show a valid passport and a Hong Kong Departure Card, given to visitors upon arrival. The only ID he was known to have was an Air Canada frequent-flier credit card, prompting suspicion he also got a US passport from his accomplice. In any event, he boarded the 6:10 pm flight and took his seat. Hours later, above the Pacific, he removed his disguise in a lavatory and hid it in a carry-on. But the flight crew had become suspicious after spotting his hands, which they thought looked much too young for his face. It contacted Air Canada, which alerted the Canada Border Services Agency, which was waiting for ...

  • Tibetan Refugee Part One DVD is available at Recent refugees who escaped Chinese torture in Tibet and arrived in Dharamsala, India to an uncertain future. In light of the recent events in Tibet I've decided to post the entire documentary I shot in India about Tibetan refugees who had just escaped from Chinese torture in Tibet. It's available at Netflix, and other online areas, but it's more important that the words of these eyewitnesses is put into the public airspace. Tibetans have been tortured, beaten and jailed since the Chinese invaded their country, I have footage of a doctor who left because he could no longer sterilize Tibetan woman in good conscience. Most of these interviews are children or monks - their stories are heartbreaking. If you want to see Tibet, check out my doc Journey Into where I take a trip with Robert Thurman across Tibet. I also feature HH The Dalai Lama, Robert Thurman, Grammy winner Yungchen Llamo, the Nechung Monks, the State oracle of Tibet, the 17th Karmapa and others. I couldn't put the entire hour long movie at one time, but it's in 5 edited clips of ten minutes each on youtube, and the other clips will soon appear. Long live the great Tibetan culture and people, and please pray for Tibet.

  • North Korean Refugees October 2007 They risk all trying to make it across the North Korean border to China, only to find no guarantee of a better life. At constant risk of being deported, these refugees live a half life in the shadows. "I thought if I came to China life would be better", laments one woman. "I was wrong". Without Chinese language skills, most North Korean refugees remain at risk of being discovered by the police. "The police pay 200 yuan to anyone who discloses the whereabouts of North Koreans", explains one refugee. "That's what I'm most afraid of. I'm always hiding". Easy prey for the unscrupulous, they're forced to do dangerous jobs for little money. "Most North Korean women fall into the hands of human traffickers", states activist Tim Peters. "They're sold into prostitution". Unlike other countries, China classes North Korean refugees as economic migrants. If caught, they face return to Pyongyang and almost certain execution. "North Koreans are being sent back by the hundreds", complains Peters. Without external pressure, the situation for these refugees is unlikely to improve. Their only hope is that scrutiny surrounding the 2008 Beijing Olympics will encourage China to change its policy.
  • Angelina Jolie Visits Syrian Refugees in Turkey Jolie-Pitt TV News - June 17, 2011 ---- (CNN) -- Actress Angelina Jolie met with Syrian refugees in Turkey on Friday, June 16, 2011 and drew attention to the anguish faced by families -- and families torn apart -- by the violence in Syria. More than 9600 refugees are living in four camps managed by Turkey and the Turkish Red Crescent, according to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Jolie, a longtime goodwill ambassador for the United Nations' refugee agency, visited the Altinozu camp in Turkey's Hatay province, about 20 kilometers (12 miles) from the Syrian border, the UNHCR said. "The people in this camp have fled in fear for their lives, and many told me they were distraught about the safety of loved ones still in Syria," Jolie said, according to the refugee agency. Jolie met with one woman whose husband was killed. The woman fled to Syria late in her pregnancy and gave birth at the camp, the UNHCR said. Another woman told Jolie about her husband who was too afraid to cross the border. A wave of Syrians have fled their country for Turkey to escape violence, including a military offensive in the Jisr al-Shugur area. Refugees at Altinozu are housed in warehouses at an old tobacco factory, and they staged a demonstration at the camp in solidarity with the many anti-government demonstrations occurring across the border in Syria. They held up signs that said, "Our military is killing its own people, please make it stop" and "UN, help us please ...
