Abdurusul and Elkun defend Nurmuhemmet Yasin

Photograph of Kaiser Abdurusul, president of the Uyghur Centre (2006-14), on the left, and Aziz Isa Elkun, secretary of the Uyghur Centre (2017-) posing in front of a banner of the Free the Wild Pigeon Campaign. This campaign raised awareness about Uyghur writer Nurmuhemmet Yasin, author of the story Wild Pigeon, who was arrested in late 2004 by the Chinese government and sentenced to ten years of prison for inciting “separatism”. He allegedly died in prison, in 2011. This photograph was taken during the 2nd Congress of the Uyghur Centre, which was held simultaneously with the Ural-Altay PEN Network Conference on 20-24 February 2011 in Budapest.

Photographie de Kaiser Abdurusul, président du Centre ouïgour (2006-14), à gauche, et Aziz Isa Elkun, secrétaire du Centre ouïgour (2017-) posant devant une bannière de la campagne Free the Wild Pigeon. Cette campagne avait pour objectif de sensibiliser au sort de l'écrivain ouïgour Nurmuhemmet Yasin, auteur de l'histoire Wild Pigeon, arrêté en 2004 par le gouvernement chinois et condamné à dix ans de prison pour avoir «incité au séparatisme». Il serait vraisemblablement décédé en prison, en 2011. Cette photographie a été prise durant le 2e Congrès du Centre ouïgour, qui s'est déroulé simultanément avec la Conférence du réseau PEN Ural-Altay, les 20-24 février 2011, à Budapest.
