Exiled Uighur activist Rebiya Kadeer has written a new book about her experiences. From the CQPolitics blog:
“Yes, my telephones are tapped by Chinese emissaries here in America, too. Yes, I am always watched by them here, too. Yes, I am threatened by them here, too,” she writes in “Dragon Fighter: One Woman’s Epic Struggle for Peace with China,” scheduled for publication by Kales Press on May 21.
Kadeer came to the United States in 2005 after six years’ imprisonment by Chinese authorities for “leaking state secrets” — a newspaper clipping she sent her husband, who was already here. Her children remain in jail.
In “Dragon Fighter” (written with Alexandra Cavelius), Kadeer adds details to an incident she described to me in 2006, in which a white van sliced across a highway median in suburban Virginia and slammed headfirst into her compact car. Her assistant Sureyya was at the wheel.
