Don't forget the Uighurs

China is cracking down on many minorities, not just Tibetans. The world has to keep an eye out for this. Tibet grabs the headlines, but there are many other groups also at risk. Case in point is the protests in Xinjiang. 70 Uighurs were recently arrested in the Silk Road city of Kashgar. And because they're Muslim, they're much vulnerable than Buddhists to being called terrorists in the eyes of the world.
