The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Uyghurs and the Coalition for Genocide Response would like to invite you to a webinar:

“The Persecution of the Uighur Muslims in China – Where to Go From Now?”

16 November 2020 at 4 PM (GMT)

Zoom Webinar (Side event to the Ministerial on FoRB)

Over the recent months, more and more evidence has been coming to light about the atrocities against the Uyghur Muslims in China, including of arbitrary detention of over 1 million Uyghur Muslims, killings in detention, torture and inhuman treatment of detainees, the forced separation of children from their parents, forced sterilisation, forced labour, forced organ harvesting, enforced disappearances and much more. Considering the powerful position of China in the world order, including at the UN Security Council, it is unlikely that decisive actions will follow to address the crimes. However, this does not mean that there are no options. The speakers will consider what are the options that can and should be taken in the case.

Speakers include:

Alistair Carmichael MP, Member of the UK House of Commons, Co-chair of the APPG on Uyghurs

Lord Alton of Liverpool, Peer at the UK House of Lords, Patron of the Coalition for Genocide Response

Sir Geoffrey Nice QC, British barrister and former prosecutor at the ICTY

Nury A. Turkel, US-educated Uyghur-American lawyer, USCIRF Commissioner

Erin Farrell Rosenberg, Senior Advisor, Ferencz International Justice Initiative at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of GenocideClick here to join as Attendee
