August Newsletter

World Uyghur Congress, 2 August 2017

The World Uyghur Congress has released its newsletter covering the month of August concerning our activities as well as the most prevalent issues concerning the Uyghur community in East Turkestan and elsewhere.

The newsletter looks at a number of developing stories coming out of the region and the diaspora including the ongoing cases of forced returns of Uyghur students studying in Egypt, the brief detention of WUC General Secretary, Dolkun Isa in Rome, Italy, and the WUC and our affiliates commemoration of the 8th anniversary of the unrest in Urumqi in July 2009 that left many killed, arrested and disappeared.

Also included in the newsletter are our recent and upcoming advocacy activities in Europe and elsewhere. Read the Newsletter Here.
