​​We call upon the US Government to

  • Expedite asylum cases and grant refuge to Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples fleeing China's genocide.
  • Support East Turkistan's case in the International Criminal Court (ICC) against China's officials.
  • Bring the plight of East Turkistan to the agenda of the UN Security Council
  • Boycott the Beijing 2022Winter Olympics
  • Call on the UN to enforce the UN Genocide Convention and uphold the Responsibility to Protect commitment
  • Recognize East Turkistan as an Occupied Country
  • Empowerthe East Turkistani People to safeguard and ensure their culture, freedom, human rights, independence and existence.

China's Actions Classified As Genocide

The United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Lithuania, and the Netherlands all classify China's actions as genocide 1. Genocide is the most grievous human rights designation.

Uyghurs are an ethnic group based in central Asia. Uyghurs practiced their culture, language, and diverse religions throughout human history. It is estimated that 2-3 million Uyghurs, and other Turkic peoples, are held in concentration camps 2.

Uyghurs are subjected to constant intimidation, coercion, and physical violence, and surveillance.  Methods range anywhere from physical and psychological abuse to threats against families.

While in the camps, government officials force Uyghurs to erase their culture, language, and religion. Women are sterilized, and children are separated from their families.

They are also used for slave labor to benefit Chinese factories 3. This practice occurs in two ways.

The first way is using factories located in the East Turkistan region (renamed Xinjiang) to produce goods at no labor cost 4.

The second is relocating Uyghurs from their homeland in East Turkistan to factories elsewhere in China. The latter is used as a tactic to prevent advocacy for workers' rights 5. Other sources claim it is to dissociate Uyghurs from their culture and homes 6.
