Title: Human-rights consequences of the proposed trans-Siberian natural gas pipeline. Hearing before the Subcommittee on International Finance and Monetary Policy of the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, United States, Senate, Ninety-Seventh Congress, Second Session, June 18, 1982

Abstract

A Russian human-rights activist and several Vietnamese participated in a hearing panel exploring reports of Soviet plans to use imported Vietnamese labor form reeducation camps to build the trans-Siberian pipeline in exchange for Soviet assistance to the Communist government of Vietnam. The panel investigated moral as well as economic and strategic consequences to detente and East-West trade relationships. At issue was US political and economic support of a regime drawing on labor from concentration camps. The panel reviewed the record of conscripted labor, the death rate of prisoners, and the experience of Vietnamese workers in France in the context of East-West trade. (DCK)
