Uyghurs condemn 74th anniversary of Chinese invasion of East Turkistan

Washington [US], October 14 (ANI): The East Turkistan Authorities in Exile has referred to as upon the worldwide neighborhood to formally recognise East Turkistan as an occupied nation, assist East Turkistan’s case on the Worldwide Prison Court docket, and take rapid steps to deal with the continuing genocide and crimes in opposition to humanity perpetrated by the Folks’s Republic of China.

October 12, 2023, marks the deplorable 74th anniversary of China’s belligerent invasion of East Turkistan, a rustic that China subsequently renamed “Xinjiang,” which interprets to ‘new territory’ or ‘colony’ within the Chinese language language. The East Turkistan Authorities in Exile (ETGE) solemnly underscores the importance of this darkish day within the ongoing wrestle to revive freedom, justice and nationwide sovereignty to East Turkistan and its folks, stated East Turkistan Authorities in Exile in an official launch.

“China’s invasion was a brutal act of aggression that has led to many years of colonisation, genocide, and occupation,” stated ETGE Prime Minister Salih Hudayar. “The worldwide neighborhood should handle the foundation reason for China’s ongoing Uyghur genocide by recognising East Turkistan as an Occupied Nation like Tibet,” he added.

Simply 11 days after the Chinese language Communist Social gathering (CCP) proclaimed the institution of the so-called “Folks’s Republic of China,” they executed a calculated and belligerent invasion of the sovereign nation of East Turkistan on October 12, 1949. This invasion was facilitated by the assassination of over 30 prime political and senior army leaders of the East Turkistan Republic by the Soviet Union from late August to September 1949. Opposite to China’s misleading narrative of a ‘peaceable liberation,’ the Chinese language Communist invasion of East Turkistan was a ruthless act of aggression that killed over 1,20,000 East Turkistanis from the time of the Chinese language invasion on October 12, 1949, till the top of 1952, the discharge added.

When the Folks’s Liberation Military (PLA) invaded East Turkistan on October 12, 1949, the East Turkistan Republic was an unbiased state. The East Turkistan Republic remained unbiased till December 22, 1949, when it was forcibly overthrown by the PLA. This invasion and subsequent occupation are clear violations of worldwide legislation, as said by the Worldwide Committee of the Pink Cross.

“China’s occupation of East Turkistan is a blatant violation of worldwide legislation and an ethical outrage that tramples upon the elemental rights of our folks,” stated President Ghulam Yaghma, including, “It is a darkish stain on the conscience of the world, and the worldwide neighborhood should rise to its moral obligations to finish this ongoing tragedy.”Because the invasion, East Turkistan and its folks have been subjected to a brutal marketing campaign of colonisation, assimilation, and occupation, escalating into genocide after 2014. This marketing campaign contains the mass internment of over 3 million Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and different Turkic peoples in focus camps, prisons, and compelled labour camps; the mass sterilisation of Uyghur and different Turkic ladies; the destruction of over 16,000 cultural and non secular websites; widespread surveillance; systematic rape of Uyghur and Turkic ladies; and the compelled separation of over 880,000 Uyghur youngsters from their households. These atrocities have been formally recognised as genocide and crimes in opposition to humanity by the US authorities, greater than a dozen Western parliaments, and the UN, the discharge added.

As a consequence of an absence of worldwide motion and even complicity, China was shamelessly re-elected to the UN Human Rights Council, regardless of its ongoing genocide in East Turkistan. The UN, worldwide our bodies, and governments should uphold their commitments to “By no means Once more” and handle the humanitarian disaster in East Turkistan by means of their respective channels, together with the UN Normal Meeting, UN Safety Council, UN Human Rights Council and the Worldwide Prison Court docket.

“China’s latest re-election to the UN Human Rights Council is a grotesque mockery of the rules that the United Nations was based upon,” stated ETGE Vice President Abdulahat Nur. “This isn’t only a slap within the face to the folks of East Turkistan; it is a betrayal of human rights and world justice.”The folks of East Turkistan stay unyielding of their quest for independence, a wrestle that’s not simply political however existential. The restoration of East Turkistan’s sovereignty is the one path to securing the liberty, human rights, and really survival of Uyghurs and different Turkic peoples. Confronted with China’s relentless genocide, the East Turkistan Authorities in Exile points an pressing plea to the worldwide neighborhood: confront the foundation cause–China’s unlawful invasion and occupation of East Turkistan.

“Restoring independence for East Turkistan is not only a political aspiration; it’s a matter of survival for our folks,” stated ETGE Strategic Advisor Mamtimin Ala. “We’ll by no means surrender our wrestle for freedom and independence for East Turkistan, as it’s the solely path to acquire justice and human dignity,” he additional added, the official launch stated.
