The Real USA - Solitary confinement

  • Whatsapp

The Real USA, hosted by Alexandra Hall, takes a look at the stories not making headlines in the US commercial press. Todays program deals with human rights violations in solitary confinement, a practice that is considered as a form of torture by the United Nations. U.S. journalists Shane Bauer and Sarah Shourd, formerly held in Iran's prisons, describe their experiences on the other side of the world, which was much like that of at least 80,000 people now enduring the same conditions in the United States.
