March 31, 2021
WASHINGTON: Around 50 Uighurs and their supporters gathered outside the Chinese embassy in Washington on Tuesday to raise awareness of Beijing’s human rights abuses and push the US government to take further action to pressure China on the issue.
“Every Uighur has a family member in a camp,” said Elfidar, an activist with the Uyghur American Association, using only her given name due to concerns for her family in China and referring to reported forced labour camps in the country.
