Join Ellis Martin for a conversation with Salih Hudayar, political refugee, founder of the East Turkistan National Awakening Movement and Prime Minister of the East Turkistan Government in Exile, based in Washington, DC.
The East Turkistan Government in Exile (ETGE) is a democratically elected body representing the interests of East Turkistan and its people. The ETGE seeks to restore East Turkistan’s independence as a democratic, secular, pluralistic, Republic that guarantees human rights and freedom for all.
East Turkistan has effectively been occupied by China since December 22, 1949 and is referred to by the Chinese Communist Party as Xinjiang. Our discussion today shall include the plight of the native Muslim population the Uyghur and their subsequent subjugation. How has the Chinese Communist Party used these people to fill gaps in their factories across the country due to the current pandemic Covid-19 coronavirus?
