On 5 February 1997, a demonstration by thousands of Uyghurs in Ghulja was met with deadly force by the Chinese state. At least 100 protesters were massacred for protesting against repression of their culture and freedom. In the days afterwards, thousands were arrested, hundreds of whom were imprisoned, abused or executed.
This Sunday, on the anniversary, Stop Uyghur Genocide is leading a demonstration at London’s Chinese Embassy: to remember the dead, and fight for freedom for the living. We are co-sponsoring, alongside the World Uyghur Congress and UK Uyghur Community. We hope to see you there.
