Support the Uyghurs and Stop the Genocide
The HGI Center is calling on all individuals to support the call for abuses against Uyghurs to be considered genocide. Uyghrus are a Muslim minority group that lives mostly in East Turkistan (refereed to China as the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region). It is believed that the Chinese government has detained millions Uyghurs over the past few years in what the state defines as “re-education camps.” The government is now also accused of a program of forced sterilization against Uyghur women.
Salih Hudayar, founder and president of the East Turkistan National Awakening Movement, will be the featured speaker. The event is co-sponsored by Manhattan College’s office of Campus Ministry and Social Action, Religious Studies department, Peace and Justice Studies department, as well as the Kehillat Etz Chayim JCRC/AJC of Detroit, the Voice/Vision Holocaust Survivor Oral History at the University of Michigan, the Martin Springer Institute and the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom.
