Up to 2 million Uyghurs are currently being held in WW2-style concentration camps in China as we speak. They are being subjected to torture, forced indoctrination, human trafficking, organ harvesting, forced sterilization, and other egregious human rights abuses as part of a massive ethnic and cultural genocide effort. Nury Turkel is Commissioner at the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (most recently appointed by Nancy Pelosi), and a member of the Uyghur community who grew up in the Xinjiang region, or East Turkistan, and has served with the Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations. He was born in a "re-education" camp at the height of the Cultural Revolution and spent the first several months of his life in captivity with his mother. He joins us to talk about the targeting of his people in one of the worst human rights disasters in current times — and what we can all do about it.
