Reports from communist China’s propaganda machine Xinhua state that 140 people have been killed and more than 800 injured following a brutal crack-down by Chinese security forces of a peaceful demonstration in the capital city of Urumchi, East Turkestan (renamed as Xinjiang by communist China. Other sources in the region have claimed that the death-toll “was still climbing.”
Uyghur exiles condemned the crackdown, Alim Seytoff, vice president of the Washington, D.C.-based Uyghur American Association said
“We are extremely saddened by the heavy-handed use of force by the Chinese security forces against the peaceful demonstrators. We ask the international community to condemn China’s killing of innocent Uyhgurs. This is a very dark day in the history of the Uyghur people”
Meanwhile Beijing has again been actively msirepresenting events, describing the protest as a violent riot, which they claim was orchestrated by exiled Uyghurs. The occupying regime in East Turkestan has accused former businesswoman now living in America, Rebiya Kadeer, of generating events via the telephone and Internet.
Communist Chinese puppet-governor, Nur Bekri, said in a televised address earlier today that “Rebiya had phone conversations with people in China on July 5 in order to incite and Web sites … were used to orchestrate the incitement and spread propaganda.”
China’s Ministry of Deception was eager to present the protests as “a pre-empted, organized violent crime. It is instigated and directed from abroad and carried out by outlaws in the country.”
Alim Seytoff, in a telephone conversation from Washington, D.C., replied that that the accusations were baseless.
“It’s common practice for the Chinese government to accuse Ms. Kadeer for any unrest in East Turkestan and His Holiness the Dalai Lama for any unrest in Tibet” he said.
One thought on “Death Toll Rises in East Turkestan Protests”
The violence is just a sign of frustration over China’s bullying and persecution of Uighurs over the years. This incident should tell the Chinese to leave E.Turkestan and TIbet and go back to their own country. It is only getting to get worse.
