NTR Issue Divides Laotian Communities in U.S. - 2004-05-06


The issue of extending NTR status to Communist Lao PDR, which is now before the U.S Congress, has created division within Laotian communities throughout the U.S., resulting in demonstrations and counter-demonstrations that have turned violent.

A Laotian community activist and his sister and friend were mobbed by opponents of NTR for Laos in a recent rally in front of U.S Congresswoman Betty McCollum’s office in St. Paul, MN.

Patrick Xaphakdy talks to VOA about the attack and his reasons for supporting NTR for Laos.
