“Electricity, Information, and traffic were cut off, with piles of human bodies on the road. All that could be heard was the swish, swish, swish of high-pressure hoses cleaning buildings, streets, and even trees. Every trace of blood and human remains were wiped clean within hours through the night” [by Ruth Ingram, BITTER WINTER, 2009]. “An estimated 1,000 people were killed during the 90 minutes. For the next few days, thousands of armed Han mobs killed thousands of Uyghurs, destroyed their shops, restaurants, and demolished mosques” [ by anonymously named witness].

Commemorate the 13th Anniversary of the Urumqi Massacre

The Urumqi Massacre is one of the numerous genocidal crimes China’s government has committed since it occupied East Turkestan in 1949. China’s plan is to systematically eliminate Uyghurs and other Turkic people from the East Turkistan land where the people of East Turkistan have lived and flourished from generation to generation.

After Uyghur workers were brutally killed and hundreds injured in a Guangdong toy factory on June 25th, a peaceful protest in Urumqi was held on July 5, 2009 by mostly students from East Turkistan University and the other colleges to push the government to answer to the brutal incident. The Chinese government responded with blood by moving heavily armed forces toward the peaceful protesters and the people around them.

“Electricity, Information, and traffic were cut off, with piles of human bodies on the road. All that could be heard was the swish, swish, swish of high-pressure hoses cleaning buildings, streets, and even trees. Every trace of blood and human remains were wiped clean within hours through the night” [by Ruth Ingram, BITTER WINTER, 2009]. “An estimated 1,000 people were killed during the 90 minutes. For the next few days, thousands of armed Han mobs killed thousands of Uyghurs, destroyed their shops, restaurants, and demolished mosques” [ by anonymously named witness].

Since 2014, China has been openly setting up concentration camps, arbitrarily detaining, brainwashing, organ harvesting, sterilizing, forcibly separating children, gang-raping, and murdering Uyghurs, Kazakhs, and other Turkic people.

We, the East Turkistan Government in Exile, strongly demand the UN Security Council, all peace-loving people, and leaders worldwide to wake up. Follow the United States and seven parliaments in recognizing China’s atrocities against Uyghurs in occupied East Turkistan as genocide. We urge you to take decisive action such as deploying the Peacekeeping Force and abolishing trade agreements to end China’s ongoing genocide. We urge all to wake up, reject the evil authoritarian regime, and say “NO” to the tyranny before it’s too late. We urge all to wake up and refuse to sell the dignity, rights, and most importantly, the happiness of generations for China’s trade deals.
