Join the Uyghur Human Rights Project for a discussion of our most recent report, “The Government Never Oppresses Us”: China’s proof-of-life videos as intimidation and a violation of Uyghur family unity. The report analyzes the phenomenon of the family members of overseas Uyghurs appearing in state-produced videos denying human rights abuses in the region, calling on their relatives to cease speaking out. These videos serve as a tool of misinformation, intimidation, and fear directed at the overseas Uyghur community.

Speakers include:

Emily Upson, Author of “The Government Never Oppresses Us”
Ferkat Jawdat, Uyghur Activist
William Nee, Chinese Human Rights Defenders (CHRD)
