(Washington DC, April 28, 2020) Justice For All welcomes the recommendations made on China in the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) Annual Report with Recommendations for U.S. Policy of 2020.
Justice For All applauds that China has been recognized as a country of particular concern, where still millions of Uighurs and other Turkic people languish in camps and prisons, religious practice is completely forbidden, and the world’s largest surveillance state persists under the Communist Chinese Party.
Commissioner Johnnie Moore, of USCIRF, said in a statement, “There is no question that China is the world’s foremost violator of human rights and religious freedom. It cannot be compared to any other country in the world not only because of its inexcusable actions, but because of the way it aids and abets similar actions by other countries all around the world.”
This is an important step to curb the rising tide of China’s genocidal policies.
Among the recommendations made are:

“An a Uighur-American, with extended relatives missing in East Turkestan’s massive internment and surveillance system, I am glad to see USCIRF’s recommendations to hold China accountable for their genocidal crimes and to call on US Congress to support vital legislations that could lift some of the oppression. We’ve been waiting too long for China to face consequences for their fascist policies, so I hope these actions are taken swiftly and seriously,” said Aydin Anwar, a Uighur American leader of the Save Uighur campaign.
Save Uighur welcome the recommendations of the USCIRF. It is time for the world to pressure China to ensure basic freedoms and sovereignty for the people of East Turkestan and Tibet. It is also time for the United States to again lead the world in taking a public stance against human rights violations, and championing human rights globally.
