The Plight of the Uyghurs in ChinaThursday, December 8, 2022 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm EST/GMT-5
P98A Lecture Hall
A Virtual Reality Documentary Screening and Panel
Join us for a virtual reality screening of the documentary Re-educated: Inside Xinjiang’s Secret Detention Camps, including a panel with one of the writers of the documentary, Ben Mauk. This film takes viewers inside one of Xinjiang’s “re-education camps” guided by the recollection of three men who were imprisoned together at a facility in Tacheng.
This event’s purpose is to shine a light on the human rights violations occurring in China and gain support for our campaign to gain visitation rights for Professor Ilham Tohti, a Uyghur professor wrongfully imprisoned by Chinese officials. The ongoing protests across major cities in China represent a larger desire for systematic change from the Chinese people as they demand human rights. This could be a turning point for the Uyghur plight, and acting now may save millions.
