“Teaching people about Uyghur Genocide is the only option for us.”

Satellite images show the rapid expansion of a re-education camp in Shule county, near Kashgar, China from April 17, 2017 to Aug. 15, 2018. The camp has doubled in size since Wall Street Journal reporters visited it in November (2018).

Remarks by Omer Kanat, Director, UN Uyghur Human Rights Project on July 16, 2019: “In 2013, UHRP published a report on religious freedom documenting how the Chinese government has gradually criminalized faith and imposed harsh punishments for observing Ramadan and for parents who gave their children religious instruction. China has now taken the logics of this repression to the limit. The mass internment of one and half, possibly three, million Uyghurs includes repetitive propaganda on the so called “evils” of religion.”

Join us to learn more about the situation and show support for our Muslim sisters and brothers. This is a FREE event.
