WE ARE VERY THANKFUL AND SUPPORTIVE THAT US SENATORS HAVE SOUGHT TO DECLARE THAT CHINA IS COMMITTING GENOCIDE
We were thrilled with teary eyes when we found out that the US senators sought to declare that China is committing genocide against Uyghurs and other Turkic speaking Muslims in occupied East Turkistan.
China has long viewed East Turkistan’s lands as vital to its strategic interests, such as rich natural resources, space for nuclear warhead and ballistic missile testing, symbolizing Chinese authority in Central Asia, the gateway to the west, and hub of the Silk Road.
Since China occupied East Turkistan in 1949, it has been systematically using genocidal policies such as being forced to undergo political indoctrination, forced starvation, forced medication, forced child separation, forced sterilization, rape, and organ harvesting. There has been a mass internment of over 3 million Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and other Turkic people in over 1400 Concentration Camps. Thousands of mosques have been destroyed, damaged, or converted into bars.
From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, the factors that increase the spread of Covid-19 are crowded situations, physical contact, enclosed space, and duration of exposure. People at increased risk are those that are disabled, pregnant, breastfeeding, elderly, etc. Can you imagine what has happened in the concentration camps where millions of innocent people have been locked up? Who are forced to work at factories as modern-day slaves? How many invisible massacres have been held? How many people have been killed?
The evidence described above has already met the five criteria set forth by the United Nations Convention for the Punishment and Prevention of the Crime of Genocide from 1948.
Therefore, to prevent more innocent people from dying inside and outside of the concentration camps, The East Turkistan Government in Exile and East Turkistan people urge President Trump and secretary of state Mike Pompeo to recognize what China is doing against Uyghurs and other Turkic people is genocide and pressure the United Nations Security Council to deploy peacekeeping troops into East Turkistan immediately. East Turkistan people desperately need your help to survive.
