On November 12, the World Uyghur Congress celebrated the East Turkistan National Day together with the Uyghur community. This is an important day, as it refers to the creation of the two independent Republics in 1933 and 1944, which stand as a symbol of the spirit of the Uyghur people and our longing for freedom and democracy.
