Despite calls to cancel due to human rights abuses, Bahrain's monarchy will host the Formula One race this weekend. The move to host the event amid protests signals an effort by the government to appear stable and secure. Worldview talks with Sanjeev Bery, advocacy director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International USA, about the decision. Also, the grassroots group, Gulu Women’s Economic Development and Globalization, was founded by women in northern Uganda whose children were forcibly abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army. Worldview speaks with Pamela Angwech Judith, co-founder and executive director of the organization. And, Jerome and Eight Forty-Eight/Radio M host Tony Sarabia discuss India’s heavy metal scene on this week's Global Notes.
