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 Uyghur Muslims in China – Where to Go From Now?”

16 November 2020 at 4 PM (BST)

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.
