Demonstration Remembering the 10 year Anniversary of the Ürümchi Massacre

Dear Fellow East Turkistanis and Supporters,

The East Turkistan National Awakening Movement will be organizing a peaceful demonstration to remember the 10 year Anniversary of the Ürümchi Massacre that took place on July 5th, 2009.

As you may already be aware, China’s brutal policies of repression and genocide is continuing at this very moment. Over 3 million innocent East Turkistanis are locked up in Concentration Camps where they are facing torture, forced starvation, political indoctrination, rape, forced medication, organ harvesting, and a brutal death.

Outside of the camps, the Turkic peoples of East Turkistan are subject to mass surveillance and systematic state sponsored racism with tens of thousands of Turkic women forcibly married to Han Chinese men, and hundreds of thousands if not millions of Turkic children being separated from their families and sent to state run boarding schools and orphanages for indoctrination.

We will be gathering in front of the United States White House on Friday July 5th, 2019 at 11 AM and plan on marching to the US State Department, where will be calling on the US Government (US Congress, White House, and State Department) to pass the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act, recognize the China’s Genocide in East Turkistan, Recognize East Turkistan as an Occupied Territory, enact sanctions against the Chinese government officials responsible for crimes against humanity, pressure the UN to uphold the Genocide Convention, and take necessary action to prevent a 21st century Holocaust.

We call on all East Turkistanis and our supporters across the world to join us in remembering China’s brutal history of atrocities in Occupied East Turkistan.

For those outside of the United States, we ask that you organize peaceful demonstrations outside of US Embassies & Consulates echoing our message calling on the Free World led by the United States to save East Turkistan and its people.

Thank you,

Salih Hudayar,
Founder & Political Officer
