James Zogby interviews key Uighur leader Rebiya Kadeer

Exiled Uighur leader Rebiya Kadeer has become a prominent voice in the fight against what she describes as Chinese oppression of the Turkic speaking Muslim group, the Uighurs (or Uyghurs). Demonstrations in July have brought the conflict, centered in the Xinjiang region of China, into the media spotlight. Recently Chinese hackers attacked the Melbourne International Film Festival website in an attempt to stop the prestigious international festival from screening a documentary about Kadeer, The Ten Conditions of Love. In this Link TV video host James Zogby interviews Kadeer.
