My Brothers and sisters!
I don’t have enough words to express my appreciation to all our friends, who have come from near and far to be with us, on a day as important as this.On behalf of the Uyghur Educational Assocciation I also thank all of those who have stood with us in East Turkistan’s difficult journey of freedom Struggle.
We are gathered here to remember those who lost their lives in the Urumqi Genocide and comfort those who survived.
We are all here to remember what happened in the Urumqi Genocide. At the same time we want to warn the world powers about China that “Chinese communist party is not only our enemy, it is the grand enemy of all mankind”
We must never forget that Urumqi Genocide was not a simple Ethnic Clashes between the Han Chinese and Uyghur people, but it was the real Genocide Committed by the Chinese occupation army.
There are Witnesses between us who explained that the protest in Urumqi began at around 5 pm local time, and that “the police’s beating, arresting and chasing started at that time, and lasted for many hours after that.” By about 8:30 pm, when it was becoming dark, “Chinese army police chased the Uighur protesters into three alleyways mostly populated by Uyghur’s,” and cut off the city’s electricity supply for about 90 minutes. They continued:
During this time, the army police, who were fully armed with armoured vehicles and machine guns surrounded the crowds in the three alleyways from both sides, and fired at them with full military power en masse. The sounds of these gunshots can be heard in many YouTube videos filmed that night and posted on the Internet.
According to the witnesses, “an estimated 800 to 1000 people, most of them Uyghur’s, were shot to death during that one and a half hour period of time. For this reason, the Turkish Prime Minister compared this violence to genocide.”
Chinese communist occupation forces may change the reality of the all accidents in East Turkistan by using media and diplomatic relationship around the world, ultimately they must give up in front of a reality that china occupied East Turkestan and East Turkistan must be free.
