When Hong Kong bookseller Lam Wing-kee decided that he was going to hold a press conference to reveal what had happened to him after he disappeared for months into China, he had to know the stakes were high.


The Uyghur American Association (UAA) organized a demonstration in front of China's embassy in Washington, DC on February 5, 2014 to commemorate the 17th anniversary of the Ghulja Massacre. At the event, the Uyghur Human Rights Project conducted an interview with Ilyar Shamseden, originally of Ghulja, about the history of the massacre.
