Whereas the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom has recognized and documented the Government of the People’s Republic of China’s repeated human rights abuses of the Uighur people;

Whereas the People’s Republic of China has initiated an official campaign to encourage Han Chinese migration into the traditional Uighur homeland, resulting in the Uighur population becoming a minority in East Tukestan and has placed immense pressure on those who seek to preserve the linguistic, cultural and religious traditions of the Uighur people;

Whereas the U.S. House of Representatives has and continues to recognize that the authorities in the People’s Republic of China have manipulated the strategic objectives of the international ‘‘war on terror’’ to increase their cultural and religious oppression of the Uighur people;

Whereas the Government of the People’s Republic of China has detained roughly 1,434 people and continues to pursue other alleged wrongdoers;

Whereas the Government of the People’s Republic of China has taken steps to control information about the incident by attempting to block unofficial reports and discussions and has reportedly cut internet, cell phone, and international telephone services in the region;

Whereas both the Han Chinese and Uighurs have suffered an unnecessary and equally tragic loss of life;
Whereas the diaspora leader of the Uighur people, Rebiya Kadeer, has been labeled by officials and the state-run media in the People’s Republic of China as the mastermind of the above said protests; and
