Thousands of Uyghurs To Protest Against ‘Re-education’ Camps in Brussels on 27 April 2018

Friday 27 April 2018 | 10:00 — 14:00From Meeus Square to Schuman Square

The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) together with the World Uyghur Congress have the honour to announce a large-scale demonstration in Brussels, Belgium on 27 April 2018 against the continued use of draconian ‘re-education’ camps for nearly one million Uyghurs in East Turkestan. The demonstration that is widely supported by the Uyghur community will start at Meeus Square at 10:00am where participants will gather and begin to march to Schuman Square at 11:00am and end following speakers at Schuman Square at 14:00.

Demonstrators are demanding that the EU:

• Call on the Chinese government to release all Uyghurs held in arbitrary detention or who have been detained without being charged

• Send an official envoy to investigate the situation on the ground

• Overhaul and strengthen EU-China Human Rights Dialogue going forward

The demonstration will build on previous efforts to bring attention to the fact that upwards of one million Uyghurs are currently being held in ‘re-education’ camps across East ;The international community has been largely muted to this fact and the European Union, who outwardly profess the importance of human rights and democracy, have remained remarkably silent.

Demonstrators are expecting the EU to adhere to international standards in terms of religious and cultural rights, freedom of expression and assembly, freedom of movement, access to justice, and freedom from arbitrary detention for the Uyghur population.
