China: A Human Rights Failure
November 16, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
John Jay’s Students Without Borders, ESF (advocate for international human rights) is organizing a crucial event on assessing the human rights conditions in China today. There will be a panel of four individuals addressing the status of human rights defenders and the general application of human rights standards in China. There will be speakers from the Tibetan, Southern Mongolian, and Uighur muslim human rights advocacy groups, along with academics involved in this filed.
The panelists comprise of Dr. Jianli Yang (a Tiananmen massacre dissident and a vocal human rights activist based in D.C), Pema Yoko (Interim Executive Director for Students for a Free Tibet, SFT), Enghbatu Togochog (Director at Southern Mongolian Human Rights Information Center, SMHRIC), and Mr. Omer (Representative from World Uighur Congress). This event will be moderated by the President and the Co-Founder of John Jay’s Students Without Borders, Mr. Lodoe Gyatso.
Do not miss this great opportunity to learn more about the important subject of human rights in China and to be a part of this movement. While the international media fails to consistently capture this important subject and the United Nations offers China a seat in the Human Rights Council, we must all work together to highlight the irony in these development. This event is hosted by the Students Without Borders at John Jay in collaboration with International Criminal Justice Club and United Nations Student Association. This event is free for public.
