Human Rights in the World - The Uyghurs


Here are the videos and discussion questions for this hangout: About human rights in general: About the Uyghurs in particular: 1. Do you know what commonly accepted basic human rights are? Do you follow the UN Declaration or do you use another standard? 2. How happy are you with your knowledge of human rights around the world? 3. What did you know about the Uyghurs before seeing the videos? 4. What did you know about China's treatment of different ethnicities inside its borders? 5. Are you aware of similar actions by other governments with other groups? 6. Are there political or religious groups whose members do not deserve to have their rights respected, i.e. membership itself is criminal? 7. Is there ever a justification to suspect each and every member of a group of being a threat when one member commits a crime? 8. What do you expect from your government in terms of protection of human rights for its citizens? Should your government also take an interest in citizens of other countries and protecting their rights to some degree? 9. Should there be an international or supranational organization to oversee compliance with human rights in the world? 10. Do we need to adjust our ideas of what human rights are - should we include things like internet access, data protection and online privacy? 11. Can nations ever truly atone for infringing on or stripping people of their human rights? Whose responsibility is it to apologize and make amends? How much time are we allowed to be angry? Please remember to watch at least a few videos before you arrive since we’ll be discussing them when we begin. Once the hangout begins, everyone will introduce each other and then take turns asking the provided questions in order to keep the discussion on topic. Hangouts typically last 90 minutes, and once the hangout is over you will have the opportunity to add people to your buddytree to organize private hangouts and develop friendships. As always, these hangouts provide the opportunity for a thoughtful, respectful and engaging discussion in a safe space where disrespectful behaviour is not tolerated.

That is an informative article. Devastating I spent 6 weeks in Kashgar in 94 - I can only imagine the tension there.
