Tokyo: Slamming China for its policies in respective regions, about 300 Uyghur, Tibetan and Hong Kong demonstrators marched in Tokyo city of Japan on Sunday.

Taking to the streets of Tokyo, Uygurs and Tibetan minorities shouted slogans and carried banners calling for independence from what they term “Chinese repression,” which is considered a form of colonialism, reports Arab News.

The Uyghurs, a Muslim ethnic group in the region of Xinjiang, demanded their region to be renamed as Eastern Turkmenistan.

The demonstrators said people belonging to the minority communities are subjected to repression and forced labor in camps.

During demonstrations, Hong Kong exiles expressed concern about the new national security law passed on June 30, threatening the “one country, two systems” policy.

This security law allows the extradition of Hong Kong nationals to China and threatens those found to have committed crimes of secession, subversion, terrorism or collusion with life imprisonment, reports Arab News.
