Uyghurs led by East Turkistan Govt in Exile demostrate against China’s hypocrisy in US

Members of the Uyghur community led by the East Turkistan Government in Exile (ETGE) demonstrated against China's hypocrisy in front of the UN headquaters in New York recently.

The Uyghurs urged the international community to address the China-East Turkistan conflict and “act against China’s ongoing campaign of colonization, genocide, and occupation in East Turkistan", reported ANI.

The protest was held simultaneously as Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi led a UNSC meeting on the Israel-Hamas conflict and “served to expose China’s hypocrisy and denounce its colonial and genocidal policies in Occupied East Turkistan",the news agency reported.

The protesters were seen holding posters that read: "Stop China’s Uyghur genocide.”

In the press release as quoted by ANI, the East Turkistan Government in Exile stated that the protest was not only a show of resistance but a powerful statement against the hypocrisy of the Chinese government.

It said that Wang Yi in his address advocated for the “right of the Palestinian people to statehood” and “their right to existence.”

However, China wages a brutal campaign of colonization, genocide, and occupation against Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and other Turkic peoples in Occupied East Turkistan with the goal to stop the restoration of East Turkistan’s independence.

The East Turkistan Government in Exile said that the duplicity was the central theme of the East Turkistani protest. East Turkistan Government in Exile’s Foreign Minister, Salih Hudayar, participated in the protest and expressed his outrage at China’s duplicity.

In the press release, Salih Hudayar said, “The hypocrisy of the Chinese government, which calls for recognition and support of Palestinian statehood while simultaneously opposing and denying East Turkistani statehood and the most basic human rights to the people of East Turkistan, must be exposed and challenged.”

“The global community cannot claim to stand for justice and peace while allowing such blatant double standards to persist,” he added.
