PodcastPodcast, The essentials of the Middle East
We hear of a Uyghur American activist directly impacted by the actions detailed in the leaked documents.
China is experiencing a humanitarian crisis. More than a million Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities are forcibly detained in mass detention camps in Xinjian province, where they face countless human rights violations resulting from forced labor, sterilization forced and the destruction of their culture and religious identity.
Recently, unknown hackers broke into Xinjian police servers, leaking thousands of photographs and documents that provide strong evidence of the Chinese government’s policy targeting the Uyghur population.
In this episode, Sami Zeidan speaks with an American Uyghur activist whose family members have been detained by Chinese authorities.
