We look at the systematic oppression of Muslim minorities in China, from labor programs pushing Uyghurs and Kazakhs into low-wage work in Chinese factories to the indoctrination camps where at least 1 million adults from the Uyghur community are being imprisoned. In Part 2 of our discussion, we speak with Austin Ramzy, New York Times reporter who co-authored a recent exposé headlined “Inside China’s Push to Turn Muslim Minorities into an Army of Workers,” and Nury Turkel, a Uyghur-American attorney and board chair at the Uyghur Human Rights Project.
