Audio not available
With the debate over the Affordable Care Act descending into hyperbolic political theater, it's not always clear exactly what is at stake. According to the Asian & Pacific Islander Health Forum, the latest bill would have eliminated coverage for an estimated 24 million persons and 2 million Asian Americans and Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders.

Erin Fuse Brown, a professor at Georgia State University College of Law, explains the impact repealing the ACA would have on the Asian Pacific Islander American diaspora, and why healthcare is so highly politicized.

The U.N. agency Unesco earlier this month sided with China and declared the Kekexili region of Tibet to be a World Heritage Site which Tibetan activists say gives a green light to China to tighten control over Tibet and round-up nomadic herders in the name of conservation. Pema Yoko from Students for a Free Tibet and Tenzin Dorjee (Tendor) and Lhadon Tethong from Tibet Action Institute discuss how the international system treats and mistreats stateless nations like Tibet.
