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.

‘As If You’ve Spent Your Whole Life In Prison’: Starving And Subdued In Xinjiang Detention Centers

Gulbahar Jelil was told not to mention the stench and sickness that hounded her and pervaded her crowded cell. She was not to mention that 30 women were forced to share a 14-square-meter space. She was not to talk about their starvation diet, how detainees received only about 600 calories per day — equivalent to two or three plain bagels — and that she had lost close to 100 pounds over the course of her internment.
