"In the Mouth of the Dragon: U.S./China Relations in the 21st Century with Harry Wu" is Feb. 10

The University Program Council (UPC) presents “In the Mouth of the Dragon: U.S./China Relations in the 21st Century” with human rights activist Harry Wu at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 10 in the Nebraska Union Auditorium. Free for UNL students with a valid NCard and $5.00 for faculty, staff, and public.

Harry Wu is a former Chinese political prisoner who moved to the United States and founded the Laogai Research Foundation in 1992, which aims to raise public awareness of China's system of forced labor camps. Having spent 19 years imprisoned in a Chinese labor and reform camp, Wu is especially concerned with China’s mistreatment of its prisoners. Wu has written several books recounting his experiences, including his autobiography Bitter Winds: A Memoir of My Years in China’s Gulag and Troublemaker: One Man’s Crusade against China’s Cruelty. Wu’s presentation will provide graphic proof of China’s mistreatment toward its own people, and will offer a glimpse into its future role as a superpower. Wu will also discuss a growing Cold War between China and the United States that may darken the bright hopes of the 21st century.
