An Arena Friday Drinks Extended Edition:
Arena Magazine consulting editor Mark F, along with Robyn G, recently travelled independently overland from Northern Pakistan, via Kashgar in Western China’s Xinjiang province, to Lhasa in Tibet.
On this trip it became clear the Chinese authorities are oppressively treating the Uighur people, the indigenous inhabitants of this region. Although less obvious, the same colonial relationship could be observed in Tibet where Chinese authorities dominate the land’s traditional owners.
Come along, have a drink, and learn more about this troubling situation as Robyn and Mark walk us through photos and talk through their trip in an informal presentation.
Feel free to arrive for an after-work drink from 5pm, with the presentation to begin from 6.30pm.
