The Ghulja massacre is part of China’s plan of systematic killings of Uyghurs since they occupied East Turkestan in 1949.
China has secretly facilitated the spread of AIDS and drugs among East Turkestan youth around the 1990s. As a result, the situation is exacerbated; with cases of multiple people infected with HIV in the same family, multiple siblings are addicted to drugs, and sudden deaths from heavy addiction or taking false drugs became more common, especially in the Ghulja region. East Turkestan’s youth are on the verge of spiritual weakening and severe moral decay.
Some progressive youth have organized sports, culture, and religious ethics clubs to remedy this tragic situation. Unfortunately, the Chinese government restricted or suppressed these club activities under various pretexts.
On February 5, 1997, those young people expressed dissatisfaction about the government’s restrictions, discriminations, and suppressions with a peaceful demonstration. They tightly lined up, crossed arms, and marched on the small streets of the town to prevent Chinese spies from infiltrating and disrupting traffic.
The Chinese government responded to the peaceful protesters, the people who looked for the whereabouts of their loved ones, the people who came from all around the city to do businesses with blood by moving heavily armed forces.
The detainees were subjected to brutal torture, including beatings with military batons, electric shocks, water splash freezing, and starvation.
Information and traffic were cut off for weeks. Amnesty said hundreds of Uyghurs were killed or imprisoned. Witnesses said more than four hundred young people were shot dead, and about 10,000 were arrested.
The Chinese government that created the Urumqi massacre in 2009, have not yet responded to international calls about the Ghulja brutal crackdown.
Since 2014, China is openly setting up concentration camps, arbitrarily detaining, brainwashing, organ harvesting, sterilizing, forcible separation of children, gang rape, and murder of Uyghurs, Kazakhs, and other Turkic peoples.
We urge all civilized worlds to follow the United States, recognize China’s atrocities against Uyghurs as genocide, and take decisive action such as deploying Peacekeeping Force, abolishing trade agreements and the 2022 Olympics to end ongoing China’s genocide.
