Rebiya Kadeer speaks at Oslo Freedom Forum 2010
In the keynote address for the Oslo Freedom Forum 2010, Uyghur leader Rebiya Kadeer reveals the plight of her people under the repressive Chinese government. Like the Tibetans, the Uyghurs are living in an open prison, forced to abandon their culture, subjected to torture, imprisonment, and execution for speaking out. According to Ms. Kadeer, indifference is not an option. At great personal expense, she fights on behalf of mothers whose children are being tortured, wives who are afraid to ask where their husbands are, and a youth that is not allowed to speak its own language.
