Austrian parliamentarian announces event to report on grim plight of Uyghurs in China

Austrian parliamentarian Gudrun Kugler announced that she will organize an event on Thursday to address the situation of Uyghurs in China, local media reported.

The situation of Uyghurs in China has been grim under the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) rule and continues to worsen, despite widespread protests and criticism on international platforms.

The Uyghur community has staged protests, rallies and sit-ins against China’s atrocities and cruel behavior towards minorities.

Online, the event reported by Kugler will be addressed by former insider “star witness” Sayragul Sauytbay and Uyghur World President Dolkun Isa, among others, to point out the issue.

According to local media, former “star witness” Sayragul Sauytbay and Uyghur world president Dolkun Isa will report on the situation of Uyghurs in China, at the event to be held at the Burg Pavilion in Vienna at 6 p.m. September 22.

Sayraqul Sauytbay from the Xinjiang region is a doctor who had to do forced labor as a teacher in a labor camp. Sauytbay’s personal story is exemplary for thousands of destinies in Xinjiang. At the event, she will report as a “star witness” on the systematic human rights abuses, torture and murder of countless members of the Uyghur Muslim minority and other minorities.

Alexandra Cavelius, journalist and co-author of the books “The Crown Witness and the China Protocols” and Dolkun Isa, president of the World Uyghur Congress, their main organization in exile would also participate in this event and speak about the human rights violations of China.

The situation of Uyghurs in China has been grim under the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regime and continues to worsen. Scores of Uighur scholars have been detained in China as part of a crackdown on predominantly Muslim ethnic minorities that began in 2016 and has only intensified of late.

A recent US report, which exposed China’s human rights abuses in the Xinjiang region, stated that “alleged patterns of torture or ill-treatment, including forced medical treatment and the adverse conditions of detention are credible, as are the allegations of individual incidents of sexual and gender-based violence”.

Former United Nations High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet released the report that Uyghurs in China’s Xinjiang province and other predominantly Muslim groups were routinely placed in re-education camps where they were subjected to torture, rape, forced labor and abortion.

Recently, on Wednesday, the Uyghur community in Austria staged a protest against the genocide of Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples in China under the guise of controlling the Covid-19 pandemic by forcing lockdowns in parts of East Turkestan and imprisoning people in homes without food and medical help.

According to local media, several protesters carrying pictures of Uyghurs killed by the Chinese government staged a rally from Christian-Broda-Platz to Heldenplatz in Vienna. A large number of Uyghurs took part in this demonstration and raised slogans against human rights violations and genocide by the ruling Chinese Communist Party.

The Chinese government, under the guise of the COVID lockdown, has trapped residents in their homes, leaving them to starve. Hundreds of viral videos and other East Turkestan social media posts show East Turkestan families suffering from starvation after being locked in their homes for weeks. Videos show Uighurs pleading with the Chinese government to let them out and bring them food to feed their starving children.

They even include young children who are starving or have died of starvation or high fever but had no access to food or medicine, local media reported.

The contemporary situations in East Turkestan are that the people of East Turkestan have been suffering from massacres, genocides and other human rights violations for more than 70 years under Chinese autocracy.

Since 2014, the Chinese government, under the administration of Communist Party of China (CCP) General Secretary Xi Jinping, has pursued policies that have incarcerated more than one million Muslims (the majority of them Uyghurs) in detention camps. internment without any legal procedure.

This is the largest detention of ethnic and religious minorities since World War II. However, China publicly denies committing human rights abuses in Xinjiang.
