We stand in solidarity with the oppressed Uyghur people

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Two decades after the Tiananmen Square massacre, the Chinese communist power drew once again the world’s attention by committing another brutal violation of human rights. Beginning with the bloodsheds in Tibet, the military campaigns against the civilian population aimed at the annihilation of the Tibetan people, followed by the last weeks’ retaliations against the peacefully demonstrating Uyghurs, warn the world: the most inhumane political ideology and system ever existing during the history of mankind lives on in China. We, Transylvanian Hungarians, Szekelys had the full opportunity to experience before 1989 the annihilating practice of communism targeting peoples and minorities alike, and all its arsenal including forced assimilation and colonization and we are still now the suffering subjects of its consequences: the continuity of this mentality, practice and political reflexes surviving the democratic transition which is also the case today. Based on our present situation and experiences we could understand and be aware of what the political analysts had stated: that the causes of these tragic events taking place in Urumchi are the forced colonization, the negative discrimination and oppression of the indigenous Uyghur people.

Hereby we express repeatedly our solidarity with the Uyghur people, with all the oppressed nations of the world and with those deprived of their rights to self-determination, and we encourage them to persevere and keep the faith.

The world of the nation states became the world of hopeless crises and that of wars. It may turn into the world of the rights, into the world of institutional guarantees of these rights only if the fate of the oppressed peoples and their collaboration will make the whole mankind receptive for such, including those individuals of the Chinese majority who do not wish that the unparalleled heroism and sacrifice of the Chinese youth at the Tiananmen Square of Beijing to prove meaningless.
