In this episode we sat down with Nury Turkel, a Uyghur lawyer who is currently Vice Chair of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom and Chairman of the Board of the Uyghur Human Rights Project. During the episode, Nury discusses how his personal experience with China’s long-standing persecution of the Uyghurs has shaped his work. He details the Chinese government’s systematic campaign of genocide against the Uyghurs and calls on the international community to be more outspoken against China’s atrocities, as highlighted in his new book entitled “No Escape: The True Story of China’s Genocide of the Uyghurs.”
