Rebiya Kadeer Reacts to Shen Yun in Washington D.C.

Rebiya Kadeer is a prominent Uighur businesswoman and activist from China’s Xinjiang region. She saw Shen Yun in Washington, D.C. last week, and says the show appealed to her on many levels.

[Rebiya Kadeer, Uighur Activist]:
“I especially liked the Buddhas at the very, very end. And I also liked the Tibetan one, the Mongolian one. I liked them all. Each performance seemed to get better and better. The singers were also especially good. The two singers, the man and the woman, were both very good. Their voices were very good.  And they looked very pretty. Everything is very good.”

Ten years ago, when Kadeer was still living in China, she was imprisoned after she criticized the Chinese regime’s brutal response to a protest in Xinjiang. A Shen Yun performance about Falun Gong practitioners resisting persecution brought back memories of what she had seen in prison.

[Rebiya Kadeer, Uighur Activist]:
“When I was in jail, I saw Falun Gong practitioners being beaten. And then I saw someone’s leg being broken. I saw it with my own eyes. He was next to me. Because I see them as heroes… Although a lot of people were beating him, he did not even make a sound. I was thinking about it a lot. So today I am really touched.”

Shen Yun’s next performance will be in Portland, Maine on September 19 and 20.
