From the Indy Archives: Reporting From Pakistan

Sarah Stuteville / The Common Language Project | As turmoil engulfs Pakistan, the Indypendent takes a trip back through its archives for recent firsthand coverage of the country.

(from the June 29, 2006 Indypendent): "Walking Out of Slavery: For Pakistan’s Bonded Laborers, Freedom Is The Beginning Of A New Struggle."

(from the January 10, 2007 Indypendent): "Reflections from Pakistan." I was in Pakistan for a little over a month last year reporting on the issue of bonded labor and debt slavery in the country. Though Pakistan was only one of the ten countries I visited in an eight-month tour, it looms the largest in my memory. I was fascinated by this country so at odds with itself: as feudal as it is modern, as isolated from as it is harassed by the international community, as hospitable as it is hostile. But the real reason Pakistan is still on my mind is because America won’t let me forget it.
