Minority Repression

William Nee, China Researcher, Amnesty International

Minority Repression

China's Xinjiang region has long been a troubled hotspot. The government is drafting a counter-terrorism law that would allow any unauthorized religious activity to be deemed "extremist." This surely won't sit well with Xinjiang's majority ethnic Uighur population, who are Muslim. Amnesty International's William Nee discusses Beijing's ongoing campaign to quell dissent and the likely Uighur reaction to that.
