Rebiya Kadeer is the head of the World Uighur Congress.

She’s emerging as a sort of Dalai Lama for the Uighurs, an exiled spokesperson who draws the ire of the Chinese government.

She plans to speak to journalists there and give a lecture this week.

Stefan CAMP spoke with Nury Turkel, an attorney and the former president of the Uighur American Association.
