  • WHEN:  Thursday, March 18, 11 AM - 1 PM Eastern Time
  • WHERE:  In front of the Harry S. Truman Building, U.S. State Department, 2201 C Street NW, Washington, DC

The U.S. sanctions for the Uyghur Genocide are hurting China, but they are not enough. The live event of the protest is being telecast at at concentration camp victim Zumret Dawut and political refugee Prime Minister Salih Hudayar are among the speakers at the event.

“The U.S. can take meaningful action to end the genocide of Uyghurs by bringing East Turkistan to the agenda of the UN Security Council, prosecuting China's diplomats under US Code Section 1091, increasing tariffs, applying more sanctions, boycotting the Beijing 2022 Olympics, and recognizing East Turkistan as a Captive Nation,”  Prime Minister Salih Hudayar of the East Turkistan Government in Exile.


In recent years, the Chinese government has executed a terror campaign against the indigenous Uyghur population in East Turkistan (renamed Xinjiang). 

The United States, Canadian, and The Netherlands governments have officially designated these actions by China a genocide. 

About 3 million Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples are currently held in concentration camps throughout the occupied Uyghur homeland and other parts of China. They face rape, sexual and physical violence, torture, organ harvesting, and summary execution.

About the East Turkistan National Awakening Movement

Formed in 2017, the East Turkistan National Awakening Movement (ETNAM) is an international movement striving for the restoration of East Turkistan's independence as an open, pluralistic Republic guaranteeing Human Rights and Freedoms for all.

About the East Turkistan Government in Exile:

The East Turkistan Government-in-Exile (ETGE) is the democratically elected official body representing East Turkistan and its people.

On September 14, 2004, the government was established in Washington, DC, by prominent Uyghur and other East Turkistani independence leaders from across the East Turkistani / Uyghur diaspora.

The ETGE and ETNAM filed a joint complaint in July of 2020 urging the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate and prosecute Chinese officials for genocide.

“We also hope the U.S. and other countries will support our case against China at the International Criminal Court so that we can obtain justice through international law,” said Prime Minister Hudayar.
