Artist Muhagant contributed this piece titled “Free… we want freedom.” Muhagant read a lot about Xinjiang human rights crisis on social media since Indonesian national TV seldom reports on it. He presents this illustration in solidarity with Uyghur struggle today. In our correspondence he told me, this picture shows the sadness on the countenance of Uyghurs and the wound of discrimination they receive. The tears are unstoppable because the freedom is stolen from them.
Muhagant said: “You have to know, in Indonesia we stand together with Uyghurs, Palestinians, Syrians, and Rohingya Muslims, even though mainstream media don’t always do so.” Original post see here.
