THE COMMEMORATION OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE EAST TURKISTAN REPUBLIC

 

THE COMMEMORATION OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE EAST TURKISTAN REPUBLIC

 

Today, we are commemorating the establishment of the East Turkistan Republic as the representative of the people in occupied East Turkistan, especially Uyghurs who are on the verge of disappearing from the face of the Earth because of China’s ongoing genocide. We pray for and honor those brothers and sisters who sacrificed their lives for defending the nation. We hope and we believe their heroic spirits will encourage us to unite under the independence flag and restore our state soon. 

China occupied East Turkistan in 1949 by moving in hundreds of thousands of troops, killing high-ranking officials, including the president of East Turkestan Ahmetcan Kasim, spreading disinformation, and giving empty promises as China is doing today. Since China occupied East Turkistan, 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 mass internment of over 3 million Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and other Turkic people in concentration camps. Thousands of mosques have been destroyed, damaged, or converted into bars.  

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. The U.S. government and the seven parliaments have declared, Dr. Zenz and more scientists have proved, many camp survivors have testified, China’s atrocities as a genocide. Therefore, we urge world leaders 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 to prevent innocent people inside and outside of the concentration camps from dying.

 

Sincerely,

 

President:  Erkin Ablimit
