International Human Rights Day
Press Release issued by the
Uyghur Canadian Association
December 10, 2005


Today is International Human Rights Day and the 57th anniversary of
the adoption by the United Nations of the Universal Declaration of
Human Rights.

Uyghur Canadian Association has marked the 57th anniversary of
International Human Rights Day by protesting systematic and brutal
repression of Chinese government for Uyghurs in East Turkistan in
front of Chinese Consulate General in Toronto..

"We continue to be the voice of Uyghurs in East Turkistan till their
voice is heard and taking this opportunity strongly condemn the Human
Rights application of Chinese government to our people back home" said
Mohamed Tohti, the President of Uyghur Canadian Association (UCA).

Recent Reports of Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and other
Non-Profit Human Rights Organizations around the world have confirmed
that since September 11, 2001, hijacking the war on terror, China has
stepped up the prosecution of Uyghurs for their peaceful demand of
basic Cultural, Political and Religious Rights.

Recent UN special Rapportuer on Torture, Dr. Manfred Novak has
revealed in his recent Statement that "Torture in China is widespread"
for the ethnic group of Uyghurs and Tibetans.

Intensified Strike Hard Campaign in East Turkistan by the Chinese
government has resulted mass arrest of innocent Uyghurs without proper distinction of peaceful expression of their basic Rights.

As we celebrating the 57th Anniversary of International Human Rights
Day and Universal declaration of Human Rights, more and more people in
East Turkistan have become hopeless, desperate and devastated due to
targeted policy of Chinese government.

Uyghur Canadian Association is calling on Canadian Government and
public to be aware of Uyghur Human Rights Problem in China and use its
ultimate pressure to stop it.

Marking the 57th anniversary of this great day, UCA has joined
together with more than 46 organizations in Canada and endorsed the
Initiative of Amnesty International for its open letter to the Prime
Minister of Canada to encourage our government to make an important
contribution to ending the horror of torture by adhering to the
Optional Protocol to the United Nations Convention against Torture and
other forms of Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment

(Optional Protocol or OPCAT). This letter has been signed by more than 46 organizations including UCA.
