Today I come to you with a sobering request.
I ask that you please sign the petition below to help the Uyghur (also spelled Uighur) Muslims in China. They are being put in concentration camps disguised by phrases like “reeducation” camps. You know who used very similar rhetoric? Hitler.
And as I’ve been told, those who don’t know history are doomed to repeated it. I’ll be damned if I let something like this go by and I do nothing to support it. My forefathers didn’t speak up when the Jews first called for help, I will help initiate the call. Below is the petition from change.com and the description of whats going on in China.
“Right now, more than 3 MILLION Uyghur Muslims are put in concentration camps in Xinjiang, China. The government has been targeting Muslims through a campaign of torture, surveillance, no rights to practice their religion and brainwashing these Muslims to disown their religion to become “normal citizens”. A genocide happening right now!
Men are taken to concentration camps, children are send to orphanages and women are forcefully being married with other Chinese men. In the concentration camps they are forced to eat pork, drink alcohol, and denounce themselves as Muslims. Leaked documents show that detainees are forced to take pills and get injections, they are the human subject of medical experiments, organ harvesting and sterilization procedures. They must memorize propoganda songs and confess invented sins. 10-30% of the Uyghur Muslims are put in concentration camps.
However those who are living outside the concentration camps are also in extremely bad conditions. Outside the camps a spyware app must be installed on their phone, so the government can monitor their activity, Muslim women cannot wear the hijab (scarf) unless she is over the age of 45, they are not allowed to speak any foreign language, there is no halal food, pork and alcohol MUST be in every household. and facial recognition can capture who is passing by a mosque and punish them for doing so.
This has been going on since the spring of 2017, with a U.S. commission calling it “the largest mass incarceration of a minority population in the world today.” NO ONE deserves to be persecuted due to their religious beliefs. Raise awareness by sharing this petition to stand up for the Uyghur Muslims in China of this immoral and inhumane persecution!
I am Nawid, a muslim and student from The Netherlands. The stories I came across on social media about the Uyghur crisis moved me. As a human being with basic human rights I felt it was my duty to do something, so I used my meme page as a platform to raise awareness about this issue and created this petition. The petition, that was signed 150.000 times in 4 days by people all around the globe, proves that the power is still with the people and we can change the situation. But there is still so much left to do. Join me by signing this petition and using your voice against injustice.“
