    Uyghurs: Prisoners of the Absurd - film screening

    Amnesty International Group 75 Oakville invites you to the screening of

    UYGHURS: PRISONERS OF THE ABSURD

    This feature documentary recounts the incredible odyssey of 22 men from China’s persecuted Uyghur minority who were detained in Guantánamo as terrorists. These Turkic-speaking Muslims, persecuted by the authorities in Beijing, escaped to the Middle East where they were captured and sold as terrorists to the American forces. From northern China to Guantánamo, Cuba, this new documentary by Patricio Henríquez charts the incredible odyssey of three of these “prisoners of the absurd,” linked to worldwide terror networks through no fault of their own. 

    When: Monday, November 14th at 7pm (doors open at 6:30)

    Where: Film.ca, 171 Speers Road, Oakville.
