UNPO – WUC Report: Repression in China- Roots and Repercussions of the Urumqi Unrest

WUC/UNPO, 13 November 2009

On 13 November 2009, the UNPO and the WUC published a report entitled “Repression in China: Roots and Repercussions of the Urumqi Unrest”.

The report outlines the events that took place in Shaoguan and Urumqi this summer in which hundreds of people were killed. It also issues a series of recommendations for future action to assuage the resentment and mistrust that has been allowed to develop in East Turkestan over the past five decades as a result of policies pursued by the Chinese government.
