Activists protest in Tokyo to silently highlight sufferings of China’s Uyghurs

Demonstrations have been taking place across the world over the large-scale repression of the Uyghur Muslim population living in Xinjiang by the Chinese government amounting to “crimes against humanity.”

Recently, on December 3, a few activists gathered in Tokyo to show support for and silently highlight the suffering of the Uyghur people of Xinjiang in China. The activists also paid homage to more than two dozen Uyghurs, who were killed in an apartment block fire in Xinjiang’s capital Urumqi, according to several media reports.

The protestors pointed out to passersby how China’s zero Covid and anti-ethnic policies – both exceptionally strict and oppressive – had combined to even further terrorize the Uighur minority in the northwestern region of China, local media reported.
