East Turkestan Exiles Create Data Base on Chinese Oppression
November 4 – “Beginning in the spring of 2017, the government of the Xinjiang-Uyghur
Autonomous District of China have been conducting a secret policy toward ethnic
minorities, primarily Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and Dungans, dispatching many
of them to concentration camps,” East Turkestani exiles say.
goal of this policy, they say, is “to destroy their ethno-religious identity
and to teach them to bow down to the Communist Party of china. In the opinion
of some experts, the number of people confined in the camps exceeds a million.
In addition, a significant number are in jails or illegally detained.”
Chinese denials and restrictions on the free flow of information, the exiles
have created a data base in which those with direct experience of Chinese
oppression can record their experiences.“We hope,” the exiles say, “that having heard their voices, the world
will gradually understand the real horror and seriousness of the catastrophe
which is taking place there.”
