NEW YORK (July 17, 2009)— The Oslo Freedom Forum brought together some of the world’s leading minds to honor heroic survivors of political oppression and persecution this May 18-20 in Norway. The conference showcased the testimonies and noble purpose of these men and women who risked their lives for freedom.

Arne Liljedahl Lynngård, Chairman of Norway’s Rafto Foundation:
“Today there is a cultural genocide going on Xinjiang. The old tone of the historic city of Kashkar is being demolished. I therefore call on every government in the free world, also the Norwegian government, to receive Mrs. Rebiya Kadeer on a political level and listen to her story. It is time for the world to speak out for the Uyghurs.”
