Peter Jan Honigsberg, University of San Francisco Law
More than one million people, mostly Uighur Muslims, are in
indefinite detention in a secretive network of prisons in
Northwest China. Xinjiang has become an open-air prison-a
place where Orwellian high-tech surveillance, political
indoctrination, forced cultural assimilation, arbitrary arrests and
disappearances have turned ethnic minorities into strangers in
their own land. Kumi Naidoo, secretary-general
of Amnesty International. Lunch will be served.
