Article about Uyghur People of Western China

Elizabeth forwarded this link to an article about the Uyghur people, which she mentioned in our Heaven Lake book discussion. It's a fascinating, but sad article. It doesn't sound like the Uyghur are living the happy, nomadic existence that Vincent witnessed.
"In Heaven Lake, the Uyghur people of western China figure prominently.

This is a link to an article by Ted Rall that I ready recently. He's basically a political cartoonist, but he has taken a particular interest in Central Asia, and has traveled there quite a bit."
