East Turkestan & the Uyghurs

China must be convinced to give permission to investigate independently

Honorable President Recep Tayyip Erdogan,
 

The recent news reports about your comments on the Uyghur situation after your official visit to China have deeply hurt us, the overseas Uyghur community around the world. That is not because of the false reports about our situation, but because these reports do not match your international image as a world leader and friend of the oppressed people all around the world. Ten years ago, you were the only foreign government leader who called the Chinese massacre on July 5 in Urumqi a genocide.

Message from Dr. Katrina Lantos Swett in Support of the April 6th Rally to Urge Action on the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act

Good Afternoon- I want to congratulate all of you who are here for this important rally and I wish that I could be with you in person. It was just a year ago that I was proud to stand with Rebiyah Kadeer and nearly 200 members of the Uyghur community as we stood in the rain outside the Chinese embassy demanding freedom for their imprisoned family members in East Turkestan.  Sadly, in the intervening year the situation for the Uyghurs of Xinjiang province has only become even more dire. 

Thanks to Indonesian people and response to Chinese embassy’s statement

On behalf of more than 3 million Uyghur, Kazakh and Kyrgyz brothers and sisters who are languishing in the concentration camps in East Turkestan, and their family members who can’t even talk about their loved ones, I thank Indonesian people who demonstrated against the Chinese concentration camps on December 21st.
