Media Outlet Monitoring Uyghur Persecution in China Vows to Continue Work Despite Ban, Arrests

The director of an online magazine that monitors religious freedom in China has vowed to continue his organization’s work documenting the oppression of Uyghurs in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR), despite the arrest and interrogation of dozens of its contributors in recent months. Bitter Winter, a website launched in May 2018 by the Italian research center CESNUR, routinely publishes articles by scholars on the state of religion in China, as well as testimonies from victims of religious persecution, and photos and video documenting human rights violations submitted by citizen journalists from inside the country.
