 Not "Terrorism" But Fight Against Oppression!

YES  WE  ARE    Not  :"Terrorism" But 

  WE  : "Fight Against Oppression!"
 

 

The Xinghua Chinese News Agency issued a press release on December 21st,
2001, titled "The Eastern Turkistan terrorists will not escape justice".

The statement concentrates on three main issues: "History of the
Eastern Turkistan problem", "Terrorist crime committed by Eastern
Turkistan terrorist groups" and "Links between the Eastern Turkistan
terrorist organizations and the global terrorism". The statement
outlines that "so-called Eastern Turkistan terrorist groups committed
acts of grave crime over the last ten years".
The press release eventually accuses the Eastern Turkistan liberation
organizations of having close ties with Osama Bin Laden and his
international terrorist network.

We, the representatives of the Eastern Turkistanis in exile and the
members of all Eastern Turkistan human rights groups, strongly deny
all Chinese accusations made in the above-mentioned report.
We view such statements made in the Chinese media as a deliberate
attempt to portray Uyghurs and their liberation movement abroad as
terrorist groups in the eyes of the world community.

The Xinghua Chinese News Agency outlined in its report that "there is
no historical ground whatsoever for [calling this region] Eastern
Turkistan. The foreign invaders used this term in the 19th century
in an attempt to split our Motherland. Xinjiang is a an inseparable
part of our nation."

Anyone who has at least some basic knowledge of the Central Asia's
history would know for sure that the Uyghurs, one of the most ancient
Turkic ethnic groups, have lived in Eastern Turkistan for more than
one thousand years. Uyghurs together with Uzbeks, Kazakhs and other
Turkic people refer to their language as to "Turkic"; equally they
define their identity as "Turkic". Over centuries the Arabs,
Persians and other neighbors called this region Eastern Turkistan.
The Western Orientalists defined the Uyghurs' territory in 19th
century as Eastern Turkistan. This term has long been accepted as a
proper geographic reference and as an official name of the region
among the locals and the world community. "Eastern Turkistan" is the
name by which our Motherland has been known worldwide; this the name
of our sacred land!

We would like to stress out that the term Xinjiang used by the
Chinese invaders serves as a clear evidence of the Chinese occupation
and oppression. "Xinjiang" means in the Chinese language "a new
border, new territory". "New territory" for invaders - this is an
ample example of the typical colonial attitudes. The name Xinjiang
was made up by the Chinese aggressors; it never was accepted by the
people of East Turkistan!

In its report the Chinese media center once again made lies stating
that "Xinjiang was a part of our country since 60 B.D". It is true
that this territory was occupied for the first time by the Chinese in
60 B.D. But a colonization and oppression does not signify "uniting
the country".
The Chinese daydream when they say that this "territory was always a
part of our country". The Chinese occupied at that time a certain
part of the world named Turkistan which also included territories of
present independent states of Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan.
However, even though the Chinese once occupied the ancient Turkistan
nowadays they do not raise any territorial claims to the new
independent countries. The Chinese know very well that doing so
would be extremely stupid of them!

The Chinese occupants have used various dirty strategies for a long
time, such policies are ultimately aimed at falsifying historical
facts. All Chinese propaganda related to the Eastern Turkistan'
issues is nothing but gross lies.

Not "Terrorism" But Fight Against Oppression!

The Xinghua Chinese News Agency's statement poses a question in its
second part:
" Which terrorist acts the Eastern Turkistan terrorists carried
out?". The report labels all existing Eastern Turkistan
organizations and associations as illegal terrorist groups.
Moreover, the movement of civil disobedience and human right activist
protests in Eastern Turkistan are portrayed as "terrorist activities".

Every civil movement has reasons for establishment and declares its
ultimate objectives. The Eastern Turkistan liberation movement cannot
be viewed under any circumstances as " the terrorist organization of
external and internal enemies who try to split China", as the Chinese
communist regime pretends to depict it.
The Eastern Turkistan liberation movement is actually an organized
way of resisting the brutal Chinese oppression. This movement aims at
establishing the independent state and struggles for the protection
of the human rights. The Eastern Turkistan liberation movement is not
a "terrorist force" as the Chines claim it to be; it is rather a
unity of the best representatives of the Eastern Turkistan nation who
would sacrifice their lives for liberty and independence of their
Motherland!

The Eastern Turkistan people have suffered severely during the last
200 years of the Chinese occupation. The Eastern Turkistanis suffered
a tremendous oppression under the Imperial Chinese ruling in the
past; and they have suffered even more under the present Communist
regime. Only within the short period between 1950 and 1980 more than
500 thousand Uyghurs were imprisoned, tortured and murdered on
charges of involvement in " nationalist separatist activities,
illegal religious activities, attempts to split the country" and so
forth. From 1990 until presently over 2 thousand Uyghurs were
sentenced to death on the similar charges; and they all were executed
the same day their verdicts were announced.

Roughly 100 thousand people are detained presently. During last
three months after the September 11 events over 3 thousand religious
clerics were detained; more than 20 among them were executed
immediately after their verdicts were announced.

It is the Communist Chinese government which is a real terrorist organization.

It is only natural for people to resist oppression. The Uyghur people
realize that gaining true liberty is not possible without gaining
real independence. The oppressed nation does have the natural right
for resistance! The Uyghur people raised over 500 rebellions against
the aggressors within the last 200 years of the Chinese occupation.
Just in the last century the Uyghurs succeeded twice in proclaiming
national independence and in establishing the Eastern Turkistan
Republic -- in 1933 and in 1949. However, due to various reasons
Uyghurs lost their independence and freedom to the Chinese invaders.
Over the last fifty years of the Chinese invasion the Uyghur national
liberation movement has never ceased fighting for freedom. The
intensified struggle for the national liberation is not "sponsored by
foreign enemies." Neither the liberation movement is an Islamic
fundamentalist organization. These lies are all made up by the
Chinese Communist propaganda in order to deceive the public opinion.
The struggle for Uyghur liberation has been going on for over 100
years now and it will continue until the full victory.

The Xinghua Chinese News Agency especially mention the program and
activities of two parties -- "Islamic Party of Reforms" and "Allah's
Eastern Turkistan Party". Xinghua associates these parties with
other Eastern Turkistan liberation organizations and claims that all
anti-Chinese fighters are essentially terrorists.

Once again we would like to stress out that presently there are more
than twenty Uyghur organizations worldwide. They all have different
programs and use different strategies in their activities.
The main recognized Uyghur organizations in exile are "Eastern
Turkistan/ Uyghuristan/ National Congress", "European Eastern
Turkistan Unity", "Eastern Turkistan Informational Center", and the
"Uyghur's Youth World Congress". These main Uyghur parties base
their activities on peaceful political fight for liberation, advocacy
of freedom and tolerance, recognition of only political and civilized
solutions to the issue of Eastern Turkistan liberation.
Presently no forms of free political organization or mass protest
against the government are possible in Eastern Turkistan and overall
in China. It is easy to understand why some people turn to the
armed resistance. Struggle for liberation has many tactics;
undoubtedly the oppressed people have the right of choosing the form
of resistance. For example, the Chinese authorities mention "
terrorist attacks" in 1995 and 1996 in Qashgar when the clerics of
Heyitkah and Qawultoga mosques were killed. These assassinations were
organized and carried out by the members of the above mentioned
organization. The interesting side of this story is that the
assassins and their victims were all of the Uyghur origin. We should
ask ourselves: why would an Uyghur kill another Uyghur? Assassinated
clerics actually were loyal to the Chinese government, they betrayed
innocent Uyghurs and charged them with political crimes in order to
gain benefits from their Chinese masters. So it is quite
understandable that some Uyghur organizations attacked the national
traitors in Eastern Turkistan in order to encourage population for
resistance. Such fight is another way of national resistance.

In its report the Xinghua Chinese News Agency mentioned famous
events of the 1990 in Barin, February 5th 1997 in Ghuldja and 1999 in
Hotan. Xinghua especially points out that 'such gross actions were
planned, organized and carried out by the terrorist Eastern Turkistan
groups". The protesters were in fact ordinary citizens who did even
not know the terms "terrorists", "terrorist organization" used by
the Chinese propaganda. These protesters only fought against the
brutal Chinese rule.

This report states that " the Eastern Turkistan groups have close
links with international terrorism" and that " the Eastern Turkistan
Islamic Movement has close ties with Osama bin Laden who provided
them with financial aid." It is true that some Uyghurs fled in
1990's to Afghanistan seeking refuge. They received military
training there; however, it is not clear at all how close were the
links between Osama bin Laden and "the Eastern Turkistan Islamic
Movement". Even if such links really existed there is no reason to
label all acting Eastern Turkistan liberation organizations as
"terrorist groups". The Chinese media illogically attempts to charge
all Uyghur organizations with the alleged wrongdoings of the single
non-representative group. This organization is not a leading member
of Eastern Turkistan liberation movement. It does not belong to
major liberation organizations and associations. The "Eastern
Turkistan Islamic Movement" represents only itself. It is
responsible for its actions, under any conditions it cannot be
presented as the general Uyghur national liberation movement force.

One should keep in mind that the armed resistance in Eastern
Turkistan began in 1980's and continued in 1990's. For instance, In
April of 1990 in Barin region large groups of protesters rebelled
against the Chinese rule. They had no arms at all and fought with
sticks and stones in their hands against the regular military and
police forces. At that time the Taliban movement did not exist on
Earth and literally a few number of people heard about a person
called Osama bin Laden.

Today the Taliban regime is overthrown and notorious bin Laden is
hiding from the international justice. But the struggle for Eastern
Turkistan's independence is continuing. This struggle has nothing in
common with Islamist radicals, bin Laden, and generally with
terrorists of all kinds. This just fight for Uyghur national
liberation will not cease until the full victory since it is not
sponsored from abroad and since it draws sources from the Eastern
Turkistan people and their =
immense will and desire for freedom
