China: Release the 1 Million Uyghurs Detained in Nazi-Style Concentration Camps
China: Release The 1 Million Uyghur Detainees Held Illegally In Nazi-Style Concentration Camps By Torchlight Uyghur Group (Mesheluyghur@gmail.com) www.facebook.com/torchuyghur/ https://twitter.com/torch_uyghur http://blog.freedomsherald.org/ This Petition Is Also Available In The Following Languages: Turkish (Turkçe), German (Deutsch), Japanese (日本語), Chinese (中文), Traditional Chinese (繁体字), French (Français), Arabic (عربى), Uyghur (ئۇيغۇرچە), Slawyan (Kiril), Russian(Pусский) January 20th, 2018 Many media organizations around the world have recently reported that a large portion of the Uyghur population is being detained either in jails or in so-called “re-education camps” (http://freedomsherald.org/ET/unb/ while their children are being kept in countless orphanages in the East Turkestan. Recently, we have learned from official sources inside East Turkestan that the number of the Uyghurs currently being held in these Nazi-style political “re-education” concentration camps is more than 800,000. That is a number known officially inside East Turkestan, but all the unofficial numbers we obtained from various sources exceed one million. According to the 2010 Chinese census, the Uyghur population in East Turkestan was 10,000,370 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xinjiang This means that about 10% of the current Uyghur population is locked up. The conditions of the concentration camps are horrific because of the fact that such a large number of Uyghurs are locked up in relatively small and crowded spaces. We were told by several people who fled China recently that people even cannot lie down during the night with their backs on the floor; instead, they have to sleep sideways with all the adjacent bodies touching one another. We have also learned from some Uyghurs who recently lost their close relatives in the concentration camps that a significant number of Uyghurs are losing their lives in those camps every day. The families of the victims are just receiving their dead bodies from those overcrowded concentration camps. The local authorities are not giving back the bodies of the younger Uyghurs died, instead, just burying them in the nearby empty fields. These are just a few of the many examples of the horrible conditions in these concentration camps. How did those more than one million people end up in jails, concentration camps and orphanages? It is extremely difficult to obtain such information in China, but we have managed to get information on some individual cases from the relatives of those victims’ living outside China (The report titled “Political persecution of the Uyghurs – Brief description of some individual cases” at http://freedomsherald.org/ET/unb/ The Uyghurs are one of the ancient peoples living in the heart of Asia. They have a long and proud history, and a rich culture. Throughout the history, the Uyghurs have been a great contributor to the world peace and prosperity. Due to their geographical location along the famous Silk Road, they have been a major force in the cultural exchange between the East and the West. We strongly believe that the Uyghurs are an indispensable part of the wider international community and will continue such contribution to the world’s ethnic and cultural diversities in the future. Similarly, the Uyghurs will contribute to the world's peace and prosperity, just as they have done in the past. Therefore, the Uyghurs have every right to live in peace with dignity, and to continuously prosper, as any other nations on the surface of our mother Earth. However, in the recent decades, the Chinese government has banned the Uyghur language from its use at all levels of education in East Turkestan, outlawed Uyghur literature (by banning and burning historical and literature books written in the Uyghur language), restricted, criminalized and attempted to eliminate Uyghurs’ religious belief and practice, and has systematically flooded East Turkestan with Han Chinese migrants in the name of “developing the West”, and thereby marginalized the Uyghurs in their own homeland. And now the Chinese government is openly killing the Uyghur people, too, in those Nazi-style Chinese concentration camps by implementing a state-sponsored ethnic cleansing policy. If we don’t get help immediately from the United Nations and from the international community to stop the Chinese government from what they are doing towards the Uyghurs in East Turkestan, the Uyghurs will keep dying and disappearing in large numbers in those Chinese concentration camps (http://www.freedomsherald.org/ET/images/image201801_13.jpg and will soon face an unprecedented threat to their very existence. Therefore, we appeal to all the international communities and human rights organizations not to ignore the Chinese government’s crimes against humanity – the crimes currently being committed against the innocent Uyghur people. We appeal to the United Nations and other international human rights organizations to demand the Chinese government to release those 1 million Uyghurs, and send investigation teams to East Turkestan and find out: ● Where are those jails, concentration camps and orphanages? ● Why and where those one million Uyghurs are being detained? ● What are they eating and where and how are they sleeping? ● What are they doing during the day? ● What are their current health conditions? ● What are the current death rates among the detainees? ● What is happening to the children/siblings/parents of the people held in jails and concentration camps? We, the Uyghurs, are powerless and helpless at the moment. As such, we cannot defend ourselves against the Chinese government’s atrocities and cannot fight this battle for our survival alone. We need the support of the global community. If tens of thousands of people from around the world sign our petition, it may be possible that the United Nations will make a commitment and will act to stop the tragedy that the Uyghur people are facing today. Please join us in our fight to end the appalling atrocities happening in East Turkestan. Please sign and share this petition. Thank you! About the Uyghur People and East Turkestan: East Turkestan is the homeland of the Uyghur people. It has been under the communist China' s occupation since 1949. East Turkestan is located in the Central Asia, and borders China and Mongolia to the east, Russia to the north, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to the west, and Tibet to the south. The landmass of East Turkestan is bigger than whole Western Europe. Its colonial name is “Xinjiang”, which means "the new territory" or "the new frontier" in Chinese. China officially designated the East Turkestan a Uyghur autonomous region in 1955, but in reality it has never become a genuine autonomous region. The Chinese government reported the number of the Uyghur population in East Turkestan as 10,000,370 (refer to the 2010 Chinese census), but some Uyghur sources estimate the real population of Uyghurs to be around 20 million.
China: Stop Religious Persecution against the Uyghurs!
Torchlight Uyghur Group (Mesheluyghur@gmail.com) This Petition Is Also Available In The Following Languages: Turkish (Turkçe),French (Français), Uyghur (ئۇيغۇرچە), Uyghur Latinche, Uyghur Kirilche, Arabic (عربى) , Chinese (Simplified),Japanese (日本語),Russian(Pусский) May 9th, 2018 According to one European researcher, at this very moment, “at least several hundred thousand, and possibly just over one million (Uyghurs), are or have been interned in political re-education facilities” in East Turkestan (known as Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China). That means one out of every Uyghur family has likely been taken forcibly into one of these camps. The crackdown has focused on young Uyghur men, so if you’re a male and between the age of 20 and 40, the odds are you will find yourself locked up in a camp. (https://www.dailyo.in/politics/china-islam-uighurs-xinjiang-pakistan/story/1/24358.html In these Nazi style concentration camps, Uyghurs are being forced to denounce their religious belief and to eat pork. In addition to these Uyghurs held in the concentration camps, more than half a million Uyghurs were imprisoned since April 2017 for keeping religious contents on their phones or reading religious books . The Chinese authorities are convinced that the religious belief of the Uyghurs is one of the main obstacles to assimilate them, and thus now openly launched anti-religion campaign against the Uyghur people in East Turkestan, reaching the highest level ever seen since the Cultural Revolution. Fasting in Ramadan is a serious crime and not having alcoholic drinks is a sign of extremism for the Uyghurs now in East Turkestan. The campaign targets all Uyghur population and it actually is part of China’s ethnic cleansing policy against the Uyghurs. The Chinese government has frequently been condemned by the Uyghur people and global rights groups for committing genocide against the Uyghurs and crimes against humanity. Now in East Turkestan: • More than one million Uyghurs are languishing in China’s Nazi style concentration camps and forced to give up their religious belief. • Uyghurs are no longer allowed to say some Arabic words such as “ Allah” and “Assalamu alaykum”. Using these kinds of words has become part of the Uyghur customs for many centuries. • Most mosques are being demolished or turned into entertainment facilities. • Traditional customs like naming children and marriage ceremony with Islamic way are prohibited. • Some Uyghurs girls are forced to marry Chinese men by the arrangement of the Chinese authorities. • Chinese men are installed in Uyghur homes whose male family members have been detained. • Islamic clothing and beards are forbidden as a sign of extremism. • The usage of “Halal” labels for food production has been criminalized. • The Uyghur government officials are being forced to sign for cremation instead of Islamic burial. • Islamic books including Holy Qur’an and praying mats were burned. Praying and Fasting are banned. • Chinese national flag and the portraits of Xi Jinping are placed in mosques. • Most Uyghurs in diaspora have not been able to communicate with their family members in East Turkestan since mid 2016. A large number of Uyghurs who studied abroad or visited some Islamic countries such as Egypt were imprisoned in 2017 without any trial. The Chinese government requested all Uyghur students studying abroad, especially those in Turkey and Egypt, to come back to China immediately. The authorities arrested returned students in airports and their whereabouts are still unclear. The Chinese government arrested family members of the students who did not return. Also, the Chinese government carried out an operation for hunting thousands of Uyghur students in Egypt at the end of 2017 and many students fled to other countries for saving their lives. Thousands of religious scholars and influential public figures have been arrested and some of them, such Muhammed Salih, a prominent Uyghur religious scholar, is known to have died during the interrogation. (https://uhrp.org/press-release/uyghur-human-rights-project-condemns-death-custody-scholar-muhammad-salih-hajim.html “The Chinese government’s restrictions on Uyghur Muslims are an attempt to assimilate a besieged religious and ethnic minority,” said United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) Chairman Daniel Mark. “By installing Communist Party cadres in Uighur homes and detaining countless innocent Uyghurs in extrajudicial ‘re-education camps’, the Chinese government has created a culture of fear, suspicion, and mistrust throughout Xinjiang. Indeed, the government’s actions are disrupting entire communities as they try to live their lives and practice their faith in peace.” (http://www.uscirf.gov/news-room/press-releases-statements/china-uscirf-deeply-concerned-about-increasing-repression-uighur “What is happening?” questions Jay Nordlinger, An American journalist and senior editor of National Review, “Up to a million Uyghurs have been rounded up, thrown into a gulag — an archipelago of ‘reeducation’ camps — with no due process whatsoever. Many have simply been ‘disappeared’.” He also says that “there has not been mass killing yet, but many Uyghurs have been tortured to death. Lots of people fear that this is a pre-genocidal situation — that the mass incarceration is a prelude to mass murder, and to organ harvesting, in particular. (This is one of the evil specialties of the Chinese Communist Party.) The entire Uyghur population, incarcerated or not, has been DNA-sampled.” (https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/an-emergency/ The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) conference that took place at the US Congress on February 26, 2018 highlighted the Chinese government’s draconian restrictions on Uyghurs cultural and religious freedoms. (http://unpo.org/article/20647 Since April 2017, Uyghurs accused of harboring “extremist” and “politically incorrect” views have been detained in political re-education camps throughout East Turkestan. Authorities have relied on a list circulated in early 2017 of “75 Signs of Religious Extremism” to detain Uyghurs amid a string of harsh policies attacking their legitimate rights and freedoms enacted since Communist Party secretary Chen Quanguo was appointed to run the region in August 2016. (http://unpo.org/article/20625 By analyzing information “from 73 government procurement and construction bids valued at around RMB 680 million (approximately $108 million),” Adrian Zenz, a researcher at the European School of Culture and Theology, conclude in a recent paper that the bids revealed a massive plan to build these massive concentration camps, focusing on Uyghur-majority areas of East Turkestan. Life inside these camps is horrifying, according to rare accounts of those who were able to leave and speak to the media. One such account came from a Kazakh national who was swept up into one camp, and then returned to Kazakhstan. Daily brainwashing sessions were held “about the dangers of Islam”. “Do you obey Chinese law or your God?” instructors asked. “Do you understand why religion is dangerous?” Other prisoners were forced to praise Xi Jinping’s greatness instead of God. Before every meal, inmates were forced to chant: “Thank the Party! Thank the Motherland! Thank President Xi!” Daily Mail reported shocking details of the methods revealed by former inmates in these camps that were employed by Chinese agencies to make Muslims in East Turkestan align with communist ideals and give up their Islamic beliefs. According to these former inmates, Muslims in the camps are made to eat pork and drink alcohol among other punishments when they refuse to follow orders from the camp authorities. Upto a million Muslims, mainly from East Turkestan, are reportedly detained in such camps in China. (https://swarajyamag.com/insta/china-forcing-muslims-to-eat-pork-drink-alcohol-as-punishment-in-its-re-education-camps Zenz pointed out that “China’s pacification drive in Xinjiang is, more than likely, the country’s most intense campaign of coercive social re-engineering since the end of the Cultural Revolution. The state’s ‘war on terror’ is arguably more and more a euphemism for forced ethnic assimilation.” (https://www.dailyo.in/politics/china-islam-uighurs-xinjiang-pakistan/story/1/24358.html A US commission on China had last month described the program as ‘the largest mass incarceration of a minority population in the world today’. (https://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2018/05/16/world/asia/ap-as-china-xis-era-mass-internment.html The unforgettable human tragedies of Nazi concentration camps and Soviet gulags taught enough lessons for humanity to vow to prevent similar tragedies from happening again. And yet, under the watchful eyes of the world, the Chinese government has deprived more than a million Uyghurs of their basic rights by placing them in these heinous camps. (https://thediplomat.com/2018/05/uyghurs-victims-of-21st-century-concentration-camps/ We, the Uyghurs, at the moment are in our fight against the Chinese government’s atrocities, and cannot fight this battle for our survival alone. We need the support of all the justice-loving people in the world.

Campaigning to get Lipoedema Treatments and Surgeries completely available on the NHS.
Lipoedema is an incurable disorder where there is enlargement of both legs due to deposits of fat under the skin. Typically it gets worse over time, pain is present, and sufferers bruise very easily. In severe cases the trunk and upper body may be involved. Lipedema is commonly misdiagnosed as many women experiences just being told they are fat and need to diet. When in fact this will not help reduce the Edema that’s present. The cause is unknown but is believed to involve genetics and hormonal factors, including Trauma. It often runs in families. But many women go undiagnosed due to the lack of knowledge in Gp’s and Doctors. Risk factors include being overweight or obese. Other conditions that may present similarly include obesity, lipohypertrophy, chronic venous insufficiency, and lymphedema. Even though this is a chronic and painful condition there is currently no treatment available on the NHS as it’s seen as cosmetic. There are treatments available that could greatly reduce the swelling and pain but as of yet they are only available through the private sector and they cost thousands. One of the main reasons I am partitioning is I am one of the many many people diagnosed with this condition I’m 46 years old and it effects my confidence as a woman every day. There are so many women like me who are desperate to lead a normal quality of life and it feels incredibly unfair that the treatment that could greatly help us is still not available. So I’m asking for everyone’s support to raise awareness and take this partition to the goverment to get this chsnged.
Help Us Stop Horse Slaughter in America!!!
What Do You Think When You Hear The Word Horse Slaughter? Well for me, I think about animal cruelty, how horrible and unfair it is to be slaughtered. So please, Chip in and help me stop the Slaughter of Horses in the U.S The term “horse slaughter” refers exclusively to the killing and processing of horses for human consumption. They say that it is “euthanasia”, which is defined as a gentle, painless death provided in order to prevent suffering. Being slaughtered is the most horrible way of killing such a beautiful creature. What is going to happen if the horses become extinct, just think about it? What is the world going to be like? Did you know that over 150,000 million American horses have been trucked each year over the boarder to become human consumption. Horses bound for slaughter (who may include pregnant mares, foals and horses who are injured or blind) are commonly shipped for more than 24 hours at a time in crowded trucks without food, water or rest. That is so wrong. For all of those horse lovers out in the world, they are probably dying inside because they are reading stuff like horses being slaughtered for human consumption (HUMANS EATING HORSES). So if we don't stop this slaughter, then the horse species are going to become extinct in different parts of the world. Horses SHOULD NOT be made into food, they are very delicate creatures, they deserve to live. I don’t care if they are pregnant but the owner doesn’t want it, you shouldn’t pass it over to the doggers to slaughter them and make them into food for humans. So please can you help me stop the slaughter of horses, they need to live as much as we do. They deserve to live a happy life. So I am begging you to sign this petition and help make a difference to the world and Help save these amazing creatures!!!
Katy Perry's Rabbit Shoes - Real Rabbit Fur?
Rabbit Advocates Beware! According to purchase photos shared on Facebook and Twitter, the pom pom on Katy's Jessica rabbit shoe is labeled Real Rabbit Fur from China! Read Huffington's Post article regarding brutally killed rabbits on China fur farms. GRAPHIC WARNING - Photos of rabbits with injuries of sore hocks, pregnant and still alive while being barbarically hung on hooks to be skinned for fur, after living their short lives in deplorable reprehensible squalor, disease and suffering. According to WJBDRadio.com Katy Perry’s New Line Won’t Break the Bank - but how many rabbits may have or will suffer and die to make her line of Jessica rabbit shoes?"Katy describes the line as being “vibrant, expressive and defining. One of the shoes is called the “Jessica” flat and it looks like a bunny rabbit, complete with a pom-pom tail".The “Jessica” flat style from the Katy Perry Collection, launching Feb. 16.After thousands of complaints from rabbit owners and animal advocates on Katy Perry Collections Facebook page, the Jessica shoe appears to have been removed from from her website. However the shoe is for sale in the UK while the description reads Faux Fur pom pom.Comments by Katy Perry Collections Facebook page stated the shoes were vegan, then later state the shoes were not vegan and it was a mistake. According to RabbitGuide.com Katy had a pet rabbit named Abracadabra. We the Petitioners respectfully request a statement of truth from Katy Perry about her Jessica rabbit shoes. Education and support for helpless animals is always appreciated and honored. Please be respectful when posting comments, there is no honor in name calling or cursing. Thank you.

Ban animal testing for good
The issue we are trying to solve is Animal testing. This type of testing refers to procedures performed on living animals for the purposes of research, like finding cures for diseases, assessing the effectiveness of new medical products, and testing the human health and environmental safety of consumers and industry. Animal testing was introduced in the twelfth century as an experimental method for testing surgical procedures before applying them to human patients. Each year, more than 115 million animals are bred, used, and disposed of as hazardous waste in research and product testing in the U.S. These millions of animals are poisoned, physically assaulted, operated on without anesthesia, and are painfully subjected to harmful toxins and chemicals on their skin, and their eyes. Animal testing is extremely cruel physically and psychologically. Every day, animals used for Chemical Testing, as well as medical research, live in cold barren stainless steel cages, isolated and alone, they are denied all comfort, social contact, and stimulation. These animals never see daylight, sunlight, or breathe fresh air. They are afraid of humans and live in constant fear of the next experiment that is going to kill them, and that is why believe it should be banned. Testing on animals is inhumane. As said by PETA, “More than 100 million animals suffer and die in the U.S. every year in cruel chemical, drug, food, and cosmetics tests as well as in medical training exercises and curiosity-driven medical experiments at universities. Animals also suffer and die in classroom biology experiments and dissection, even though modern non-animal tests have repeatedly been shown to have more educational value, save teachers time, and save schools money.” (PETA.org) This shows that animal testing should be banned because the amount of animals that die in experimental testing is way too high, these animals aren't treated in a humane way, they are treated like nothing. Although there is the Animal Welfare Act, more than 99 percent of animals used in experiments are not covered by even the minimal protections of the act, and we believe that should be changed. We need the government to make a law stating that animal testing is illegal. We also need the government to stop funding animal tests, and instead, start funding and supporting organizations that are working to prevent animal testing, like PETA. Animal testing should be banned because it violates animals' rights, it causes pain and suffering to the experimental animals, and other means of testing product toxicity are available, like using technology. Thank you, everyone, for signing this important petition, and we hope we can bring change to this issue. We need to stop harming the harmless.
