According to Chinese Government, some 8 million Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and other Turkic peoples were sent to Concentration Camps from 2014-2019. We believe that when including those being held in prisons and labor camps, the number of people detained could be much higher.
ETNAM firmly believes that without restoring East Turkistan’s national independence, we cannot truly preserve the existence of East Turkistan and its people, let alone safeguard their basic human rights and religious freedoms. Thus, ETNAM is fully committed to peacefully struggling to restore East Turkistan’s independence, whilst adhering to the principles of non-violence.
One of the fundamental missions of ETNAM is to expose China’s brutal campaign of genocide in East Turkistan and to shut down China’s concentration camps. Ultimately, our goal is to end China’s brutal ongoing campaign of genocide, colonization, and occupation in East Turkistan, with the support of the wider Free World.
ETNAM is fully committed to the preservation and advancement of Women’s Rights, both in East Turkistan and throughout our diaspora community. We are especially focused on documenting and opposing China’s violations of women’s rights in East Turkistan in order to bring an end to the systematic rape and trauma perpetrated by China and its Occupation forces.
