When Uyghur rights activist Rushan Abbas’ sister goes missing, she rallies thousands of Uyghurs from around the world and draws global media attention to the plight of Uyghurs in China, as she tries to find the truth behind her sister’s disappearance.
Her activism garners attention from world leaders including prominent US senators from both sides of the aisle, Nancy Pelosi and Marco Rubio, who are instrumental in passing the “Forced Labour Prevention Act” in the U.S. Senate. The Act aims to hold China accountable for its forced labour of Uyghurs.
Eventually Rushan finds her answer, her sister was accused and convicted of state terrorism and sent to 20 years in a detention camp. Reports indicate the camps are used to rape, torture, sterilize and enslave an entire ethnic population in an attempt to silence and subjugate them.
Rushan and her allies and supporters across the globe demand the release of her sister and over 1.8-3 million Uyghurs from Chinese concentration camps.
With the participation of Rushan Abbas and director Jawad Mir, who will participate in the discussion with the audience.
