Uighur trouble in China: Women march in Istanbul

| @indiablooms | 12 Mar 2021, 06:23 pm

A large number of women staged a march in Istanbul recently to demand an end to China's  ‘genocide’ and protection of Uighur women’s rights, media reports said.

About 500 protesters, mostly Uighurs, gathered outside the Chinese consulate in Istanbul on International Women's Day, reports NHK.

They protested the detainment of their mothers and other relatives in China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, the website of the Japanese broadcaster reported.

A protester told the broadcaster her mother looked forward to International Women's Day every year, but is now struggling in a detention center.
