      Uyghur Human Rights Coalition Presentation at the Stompin' Grounds Coffee
      House in Washington, DC:

      THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT'S EGREGIOUS HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS AGAINST THE
      UYGHURS OF THE XINJIANG UYGHUR AUTONOMOUS REGION

      The Uyghurs are the indigenous Turkic Muslim people of the Xinjiang Uyghur
      Autonomous Region of China (known to the Uyghurs as East Turkistan). For
      decades, they have protested the Chinese government's policies of political
      repression, religious and cultural persecution, racial discrimination, and
      colonization. Since September 11, the crackdown on the Uyghurs has
      intensified, as the Chinese government tries to falsely portray the Uyghurs'
      political dissent as terrorism and as it tries to use America's war on
      terrorism to justify its oppressive policies against the Uyghurs.

      Come hear several Uyghurs' accounts of the Chinese government's horrific
      human rights violations against the Uyghur people. Find out what you can do
      to help end the Uyghurs' suffering.
