Genocide Evidence

WE ARE VERY THANKFUL AND SUPPORTIVE THAT US SENATORS HAVE SOUGHT TO DECLARE THAT CHINA IS COMMITTING GENOCIDE

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.

Face à la répression des Ouïghours, l’ONU appelée à « déployer des troupes de maintien de la paix » en Chine

Face à la répression des Ouïghours, l'ONU appelée à « déployer des troupes de maintien de la paix » en Chine

Rédigé par Saphirnews | Mardi 24 Novembre 2020 à 20:15

Alors que les persécutions du pouvoir chinois à l’encontre des Ouïghours se poursuivent, le gouvernement en exil du Turkestan oriental, aussi connue sous le nom de Xinjiang, demande « fermement » au Conseil de sécurité de l’ONU de « déployer immédiatement des troupes de maintien de la paix » en Chine pour venir en aide aux minorités persécutées.

Le gouvernement en exil du Turkestan oriental, région aussi connue sous le nom de Xinjiang, appelle l’ONU à « déployer immédiatement des troupes de maintien de la paix pour mettre fin aux crimes de génocide chinois contre les Ouïghours, les Kazaks » et d’autres minorités turcophones.

Son appel, lancé fin septembre et réitéré en cette fin du mois de novembre, est parvenu à la rédaction de Saphirnews. « Même si le Conseil de Sécurité des Nations unies a sauvé des millions de vies innocentes en envoyant des troupes de maintien de la paix au Kosovo et au Soudan du Sud à temps, c’est une tragédie qu’il ait fermé les yeux sur le crime de génocide chinois dans le Turkestan oriental occupé pendant sept décennies », alerte le gouvernement en exil du Turkestan oriental, dirigé par Erkin Ablimit, pour qui garder le silence sur les exactions en cours de la Chine « équivaut à donner le feu vert aux régimes totalitaires et aux crimes de génocide pour se répandre dans le monde ».

Internement, travail sous contrainte, torture, stérilisations forcées des femmes,destruction de milliers de mosquées… Plusieurs rapports et témoignages étayent l’existence de crimes et leur ampleur, rappelle cette instance qui cite Amy K. Lehr, directrice de l’Initiative pour les droits de l’homme au Centre d’études stratégiques et internationales (CSIS) pour qui l’internement dans les camps des Ouïghours est « la plus grande détention de minorité religieuse depuis la Seconde Guerre mondiale ».
 

« Nous avons désespérément besoin de votre aide pour survivre »

La propagation du Covid-19 dans les camps est aussi une source d’inquiétude pour le gouvernement en exil du Turkestan. Citant les Centres pour le contrôle et la prévention des maladies, la principale agence fédérale des États-Unis en matière de protection de la santé publique, « les facteurs qui augmentent la propagation de la Covid-19 sont les situation de surpeuplement, les contacts physiques, les espaces clos et la durée de l’exposition. Les personnes à risque accru sont celles qui sont handicapées, enceintes, qui allaitent, les personnes âgées ».

« Pouvez-vous imaginer ce qui s’est passé dans les camps de concentration où des millions d’innocents sont enfermés ? Qui sont obligés de travailler dans les usines comme esclaves des temps modernes ? Combien de massacres invisibles ont eu lieu ? Combien de personnes ont été tuées ? », questionnent les dirigeants pour appuyer leur demande à l’ONU. « Les habitants du Turkestan oriental ont désespérément besoin de votre aide pour survivre », plaident-ils.

Cet appel au secours, les Ouïghours et leurs représentants l’ont lancé à de multiples reprises, sans effet à ce jour alors que l’heure est grave. Notons que la Chine fait partie des Etats membres permanents au Conseil de sécurité de l’ONU disposant d’un droit de veto. « On doit récupérer notre pays, c’est le principal. C’est vital. C’est une vraie question de vie ou de mort. Les Chinois exercent une pression totale sur nous. Tout le temps. Par conséquent, se séparer d’eux permettrait d’éviter un génocide déjà entamé. Sans indépendance, plus de vie possible », a fait savoir Rebiya Kadeer, la présidente du Congrès mondial ouighour, dans une interview parue sur Saphirnews en juin dernier au cours de laquelle elle encourageait la France à défendre les droits des Ouïghours.

Exclusive: In latest China jab, U.S. drafts a list of 89 firms with military ties

Exclusive: In latest China jab, U.S. drafts a list of 89 firms with military ties

By Karen Freifeld

(Reuters) – The Trump administration is close to declaring that 89 Chinese aerospace and other companies have military ties, restricting them from buying a range of U.S. goods and technology, according to a draft copy of the list seen by Reuters.

The list, if published, could further escalate trade tensions with Beijing and hurt U.S. companies that sell civil aviation parts and components to China, among other industries.

A spokesman for the U.S. Department of Commerce, which produced the list, declined to comment. The Chinese foreign ministry did not immediately response to a request for comment.

Commercial Aircraft Corp of China Ltd (COMAC), which is spearheading Chinese efforts to compete with Boeing and Airbus, is on the list, as is Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) and 10 of its related entities.

The list is included in a draft rule that identifies Chinese and Russian companies the U.S. considers “military end users,” a designation that means U.S. suppliers must seek licenses to sell a broad swath of commercially available items to them.

According to the rule, applications for such licenses are more likely to be denied than granted.

U.S President Donald Trump has stepped up his actions in recent months against China. Ten days ago, he unveiled an executive order prohibiting U.S. investments in Chinese companies that Washington says are owned or controlled by the Chinese military.

The pending list comes after the Commerce Department expanded the definition of “military end user” in April.

The April rule includes not only armed service and national police, but any person or entity that supports or contributes to the maintenance or production of military items — even if their business is primarily non-military.

The export restriction applies to items as disparate as computer software like word processing, scientific equipment like digital oscilloscopes, and aircraft parts and components.

In terms of aircraft, the items include everything from brackets for flight control boxes to the engines themselves.

News of the list comes at a sensitive time for the U.S. aerospace industry as Boeing seeks Chinese approval of its 737 MAX after it was cleared by U.S. regulators last week. In March 2019, China was the first nation to ground the jet following two fatal crashes and it is already expected to wait months to lift the ban. A spokesman for Boeing declined to comment.

Washington trade lawyer Kevin Wolf, a former Commerce official, said Commerce had shared the draft rule with a technical advisory committee of industry representatives, and it should have been kept confidential.

Wolf said the rule and list still could be modified and that the clock was running out for it to go into effect under the Trump administration since it would need to be cleared and sent to the Federal Register, the official U.S. publication for rules, by mid-December.

In the draft rule seen by Reuters, the Commerce Department said being able to control the flow of U.S. technology to the listed companies was “vital for protecting U.S. national security interests”.

But a former U.S. official who did not want to be identified, said “merely creating a list and populating it is a provocative act.” An aerospace industry source said it could spur China to retaliate.

The inclusion of COMAC would come as a surprise to at least one major U.S. supplier, which had determined the company was not a military end user, the industry source said.

A list also would provide European competitors with an opening to promote their manufacturers, by pointing out they do not have to clear such hurdles, even if the U.S. grants the licenses, the industry source said.

General Electric Co and Honeywell International, both supply COMAC and have joint ventures with AVIC.

A GE spokesperson said its global joint ventures operate in compliance with all laws, and that the company has worked to obtain licenses related to military end users.

A Honeywell spokeswoman declined to comment.

Besides the 89 Chinese listings, the draft rule also designates 28 Russian entities, including Irkut, which is also aiming to break into Boeing’s market with its MC-21 jetliner development.

The 117-company list is “not exhaustive,” the draft rule said, and is considered an “initial tranche.”
