Hunt is on for Uygur eight

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

Beijing has published a list of eight men from its Muslim northwest who it said are terrorists and had threatened the Beijing Olympics in August and appealed to other countries for help in finding them.
“All the eight terrorists listed are members of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement,” Public Security Bureau spokesman Wu Heping said.

“And they all took part in plotting, organizing and executing various terrorist activities targeting the Beijing Olympic Games.”

The movement, listed by China, the United States and the United Nations as a terrorist organization, has been striving for many years to create an independent homeland in the Muslim-populated Xinjiang region.

Xinjiang is a vast area of mountains and deserts that borders central Asia. Many of its 8.3 million Uygurs, a Muslim minority speaking a Turkic language, say they have suffered decades of repression under communist rule.

Further, Uygur dissidents and rights groups claim Beijing has exaggerated the terrorism threat in Xinjiang to justify a harsh security crackdown there.

Wu appealed to other countries for help in capturing the eight: “We hope the governments of relevant countries and law-enforcement agencies will track them down, immediately arrest them and hand them over to China so that we can hold them responsible for their crimes.”

All eight are Chinese nationals with Uygur names. Wu alleged some of them organized terrorist training, recruited members, raised funds for terrorist activities and manufactured poisons and explosives. Others participated in militant training.

China reported a wave of violence before and during the Beijing Olympic Games in Xinjiang and laid much of the blame on militant Uygurs. Authorities said more than 30 people died in violence in Xinjiang during August.

New Land Clash in China
2008-10-15
A new clash erupts in southern China over the value of farmland slated for development.

HONG KONG—Police fired tear-gas and detained more than a dozen villagers in China’s southern Guangdong province during a clash with hundreds of demonstrators protesting what they describe as inadequate compensation for their farmland, witnesses said.

A witness surnamed Li said violence broke out Tuesday when villagers from Guangning county tried to stop construction workers from filling in their farmland with soil for the building of an industrial park.

“Hundreds of us villagers tried to stop the equipment from reaching the farmland. They mobilized more than 1,000 police and used tear-gas on us. The villagers were incapacitated. Then they threw rocks at the villagers and beat them,” Li said.

Police moved into the villages and rounded up participants, he said. “The police have cordoned off the villages and many are unable to leave the villages. More than a dozen from Hebu, Chayuan, and Mabu villages were detained.”

Another witness, a woman surnamed Xie, said scores were injured in the incident, including many elderly villagers. “There were between 1,000 and 2,000 police. Many villagers were beaten,” Xie said.

I cannot make calls to the outside, but outside people can call me…Other villagers can make only local calls.”

“Villagers in their 70s and 80s marched ahead of the crowd. They didn’t want their children and grandchildren to lose the land. The police pushed them, they fell. The young ones went up to help them. And the police started beating people,” she said.

Ma Meiju, a woman in her 50s from Chayuan village, was beaten by armed police and admitted to Guangning county hospital for treatment, her son said.

When her husband, Li Hairong, and younger son, Li Jincai, tried to intervene, the two were arrested on charges of obstruction of official business.

“Three or four armed police pushed my mom down in the woods and beat her over the head with a wooden stick. They also kicked her in the stomach and the leg,” Ma’s elder son said.

“My dad and brother went up with a couple of bottles containing gasoline and were detained on charges of obstruction of official business. Who could stand by and watch when their mom and wife are beaten? Something is wrong with police beating a woman,” he said.

On Wednesday, villagers said hundreds of police remained on alert and were searching for three people identified as protest ringleaders, identified as Li Fujing, Li Qiaozhong and Lu Dahua.

A Dong, a resident of Cha Yuan village, said police had posted “wanted” photos of three people accused of “obstructing government work” and urged residents to share information about them. “We’re still wondering what crimes they are accused of committing,” he said.

Officials have warned residents that they must submit land compensation claims by Oct. 22.

Car torched

Villagers said that police had searched the home of one of the wanted men, Li Fujing, and that unidentified people set his car on fire. Another witness reported seeing four vehicles ablaze around 2 a.m. Wednesday.

“The fire broke out suddenly…Many people woke up and tried to put out the fire. There are many residential houses nearby,” one villager surnamed Li said.

Another villager surnamed Xie said Li’s home “was searched and somebody set his personal property on fire. I think they just want to smoke them out to turn themselves in.”

Checkpoints, phone trouble

Another villager surnamed Lin returned home Wednesday after leaving briefly to avoid trouble with the police. He said many villagers’ mobile phones weren’t working and police were out in force.

“Many armed police are standing guard at every entrance to the village and roadblocks have been set up too,” Lin said. “Passengers in cars are subject to ID checks. I saw hundreds of police just in our village—and lots of plainclothes police around all the affected villages. “

Officials at the county police station hung up the phone when contacted by a Hong Kong-based reporter.

“I cannot make calls to the outside, but outside people can call me,” one villager said. “And other villagers can make only local calls. I first noticed this problem on Oct. 13.”

Villagers ‘causing trouble’

A Wuhe township government official who refused to give his name and job title acknowledged that efforts were made to expropriate farmland on Monday, that police were called in to maintain order, and that some villagers had been detained.

“On Monday a small number of villagers caused trouble. We requested assistance from police to maintain order. After the crowd was dispersed on Monday, the construction went ahead as planned today,” the official said.

He declined to say exactly how many villagers had been detained.

According to the Wuhe township government official, the industrial park requires the expropriation of more than 1,000 mu (67 hectares) of farmland.

He said the villagers had been compensated at an above-market rate and only a small number had resisted the land expropriation because of their belief in fengshui, an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics believed to create harmony through physical surroundings.

“The industrial park is a municipal-level priority project. The entire expropriation process was conducted in accordance with the law, but some villagers refuse to turn the land over because of their superstitious belief in fengshui,” the official said.

The villagers claim that they were only offered a one-off compensation scheme at the rate of 16,000 yuan (U.S. $2,344) for each mu expropriated. Many were unhappy with the offer and said they had signed several petitions during the last year.

Intimidation tactics

One woman, surnamed Li, said that the authorities pressured villagers to sign the land-sale agreement, and in late September even began to intimidate their children.

“The kids came home from school and said they were forced to sign statements vowing not to cause trouble. It’s the right thing to do for farmers to protect their farmland. We never signed the agreement to sell the land,” she said.

“But they carried out the scheme anyway. And now they are after those of us who petitioned our case. The people’s police [are] in full gear, including bullet-proof vests, and with police dogs,” Li said.

Villagers said that as of late Tuesday between 40 and 50 villagers were still under surveillance.

Some were taken away and their whereabouts are unknown. They said that when reporters from the Zhujiang Daily, a local newspaper, tried to go to the protest site, the trip was inexplicably cancelled.

Land protests spreading

Land disputes have spread across China in recent years, with local people often complaining that they receive only minimal compensation when the government sells tracts to developers.

In June, 900 vegetable farmers in China’s central Hubei province were involved in violent clashes with police over the course of ten days when authorities tried to seize their farmland for redevelopment.

The local government attempted to develop the land despite the fact that the farmers had rejected a compensation package that many said was too low. Scores of farmers were detained during the protests and at least one was detained.

In April, one villager was killed and five critically wounded when armed police opened fire on up to 100 protesters demanding a halt to the building of a mine in China’s southern Yunnan province.

Villagers had refused a compensation package offered by the mining company for the tract of land and were angered when the company proceeded with construction plans.

Press Statement

The Chinese have in October 1949 Eastturkistan occupied. In the years 1933 and 1944 the Uyghurs twice managed through insurgencies, from the occupation by the Chinese people to liberate. The Republic was last through the cooperation of internal and external enemies busy and has existed since no more than Republic, the Republic still exists still in the hearts of the Uyghurs.

Since the occupation by China Eastturkistans the Chinese have on the destruction of culture, ethnicity and religion of the Uyghurs and help them try the Uyghurs from history to banish by a systematic genocide operate. There, 49 in Ostturkistan nuclear test carried out several 100,000 Uyghurs are thus lost their lives and there are still Uyghurs, who are thus a physical (disability, deformity, etc.) and mental harm to the disease in many forms shows.

The minerals were systematically exploited and thus was an ecological disaster leave. The water and soil were thus poisoned. Many animals and plants are therefore extinct. The climate has changed, the snow on the mountains is geschmolzen.Um to destroy our people, the Chinese have a dictatorial policy of birth control in the uyghur population, while several million were killed uyghuris babies.

Since the occupation of the Chinese people, we have our values and culture to our children can impart. There has recently been closed our schools and our mother tongue and writing were viewed as inferior. The lesson was to the detriment of our people is changing, our children are in school forced the Chinese language to learn and use. Our national education system was destroyed and the teachers who taught in our mother tongue, were removed from the school. Our history and our people were considered non-existent and as a lie taught to our children.

Although we could not say what we think, there are media, in the language uyghur disseminated, but even these have to reckon with a ban. The into Eastturkistan unemployment has made the Uyghurs gained the upper hand, while at the Chinese in Eastturkistan unemployment hardly exists. The Uyghurs have in their own country little opportunity to work or to start companies. Our nation has thus become one of the poorest peoples of the world.

Since 2008 has been the Uyghurs in Ürümchi, Hoten, Kashgar, Kucha, Peyziabad, Yengisheher, Yengihisar, Kargalik, Gulja, Aksu,Kumul and Turfan, which are against the injustices of the Chinese of their state as “terrorists”, “religious fanatics” and ” Separatists “and was titled, without respecting international human rights and condemned to 10.000en plugged in prisons, sometimes for life. Many of them were in an unbelievably brutal way and tortured and killed.

In those days in October before 59 years the Chinese have our free country Eastturkistan Republic occupied. We remember our Republic and want to make our country Eastturkistan again a free and independent country. We as Uyghur Organisation in Europe today to remember the injustices of the Chinese. We ask the civilized world and its Democratic countries, nations, peoples, organizations, associations and citizens and us financially and politically support to this eyesore of the history of mankind to clean up.

Guantanamo Uyghurs Ordered Freed
2008-10-07

A U.S. judge orders the release of 17 ethnic Uyghurs held for almost seven years at Guantanamo Bay. But the legal fight isn’t over.

The court house in Washington DC where, on October 7, 2008, a U.S. District Judge ruled that 17 Uyghurs held in Guantanamo Bay must be freed because they are no longer considered enemy combatants.



WASHINGTON—A U.S. judge today ordered the release of 17 ethnic Muslim Uyghurs from China who have been held at Guantanamo Bay for almost seven years, in a move immediately welcomed by Uyghur exile groups. U.S President George W. Bush’s administration vowed to try and reverse the decision.

U.S. District Judge Ricardo M. Urbina ruled that the Uyghurs, Muslims from China’s northwestern Xinjiang region, must be freed because they are no longer considered enemy combatants.

“Because the Constitution prohibits indefinite detentions without cause, the continued detention is unlawful,” Urbina said. He ordered their release by Friday in Washington, and he also set a hearing for next week to determine where they should be settled.

In a statement, the White House said it “strongly” disagreed with the judicial order and would seek emergency measures to stop and subsequently reverse it, on grounds that it would create a legal precedent for the release of other detainees “including sworn enemies of the United States suspected of planning” the Sept.11, 201 attacks on New York and Washington.

Today we heard a voice from the court saying that Uyghurs are not terrorists.”
Rebiya Kadeer, World Uyghur Congress

Rebiya Kadeer, president of the World Uyghur Congress, welcomed the judge’s order and called it a victory for millions of Uyghurs inside China, some of whom Beijing has labeled terrorists committed to violent separatism.

“The Chinese government is trying to portray all Uyghurs as terrorists just because there are Uyghurs detained in Guantanamo. They try to classify any kind of fight by Uyghurs as terrorist activity, and they are trying to exterminate our ethnic group,” Kadeer said.

“But today, the Western world, and especially the United States through its Constitution, has proven that they are innocent. Now they will be released from the cages of Guantanamo to freedom,” she said.

“Today we heard a voice from the court saying that Uyghurs are not terrorists. Those who have fought for the freedom of the Uyghur people wherever they are detained, even in Afghanistan—they are not a threat to the world,” she said.

Terrorism alleged

Several of the Uyghurs detained at Guantanamo Bay were living in camps in Afghanistan in 2001 when airstrikes drove them across the border to Pakistan, where they were taken captive and turned over to U.S. forces.

The men were held in a military prison in Guantanamo Bay for nearly seven years. Cleared for release in 2004, the U.S. government has been unable to find them a home.

Rebiya Kadeer, seen here with her husband in front of the court on October 7, said: “Today we heard a voice from the court saying that Uyghurs are not terrorists.” Beijing has demanded the repatriation of all Uyghurs held at the U.S. Naval prison in Cuba, and most countries who might otherwise take them in fear diplomatic reprisals.

The Chinese government says the men are members of the outlawed East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM), which Beijing and Washington regard as a terrorist organization. Beijing blames ETIM for a series of violent attacks inside China in recent years.

Some sent to Albania

Five Uyghurs detained at Guantanamo Bay were released and given refuge by the Albanian government in 2006, despite protests from Beijing.

One of the detainees sent to Albania, Ababehir Qasim, said earlier that the men would have preferred to remain in custody in Guantanamo rather than return to China.

“Sometimes we thought that if that were the only option, instead of going back to China we would be better off staying there [in Guantanamo]… Going back to China would more than double the suffering of the Uyghur people’s spirits,” Qasim said.

“So our people wouldn’t suffer, we thought that staying at Guantanamo would be better. The time it took to apply for political asylum became longer and longer, and we heard from our lawyer that the Chinese government was pressuring other governments not to accept us. Naturally, we tried to comfort each other,” he said.

Chinese position

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said before the court hearing that Beijing wants the men sent back.

“China has urged the U.S. to repatriate these Chinese terrorist suspects to China on many occasions. We hope the U.S. will take our position seriously and repatriate these persons to China sooner rather than later,” he said.

Uyghurs twice enjoyed short-lived independence after declaring the state of East Turkestan during the 1930s and 40s, and many oppose Beijing’s rule in the region.

Chinese officials have said extremists among the region’s mostly Muslim ethnic Uyghur population plotted terrorist strikes during the Beijing Olympics.

More reaction

Henryk Szadziewski of the Uyghur Human Rights Project also welcomed news of the men’s release.

“We can see that the Chinese government’s assertions, that somehow the Uyghurs detained in Guantanamo were somehow linked to global terror, have all been denied by the United States courts here. This is a wonderful, historic day for Uyghur people,” Szadziewski said.

“What we’re looking at here is a decision that says that Uyghur people are not interested in pursuing their cause for increased democracy and human rights through violent means.”
