The Uighur Crisis in China: One Million Prisoners and Counting

Wednesday, March 6, 2019 @ 12:50 pm - 2:00 pm

More than one million people, mostly Uighur Muslims, are in indefinite detention in a secretive network of prisons in Northwest China.

“Xinjiang has become an open-air prison, a place where Orwellian high-tech surveillance, political indoctrination, forced cultural assimilation, arbitrary arrests and disappearances have turned ethnic minorities into strangers in their own land.”
—Kumi Naidoo, secretary general of Amnesty International.

Lunch will be served.
