CANBERRA, Australia — Representatives of Tibetan, Uyghur, and Falun Gong groups that have been victimised by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have called on world leaders to unite against the regime.
Kalsang Yonten Tipnak, the president of the All Australian Tibetan Community, said it was time for the free countries of the world to unite in their efforts to “combat human rights abuses around the world.”
“It is high time that the international community muster enough courage and commitment to substantively register their protest against high-handed Chinese atrocities against Tibetans and other oppressed peoples under the CCP rule such as Uyghurs, Southern Mongolians, and Hongkongers,” he said.
Tipnak, who spoke about the atrocities occurring currently in his homeland, said he was concerned by how the CCP was increasing its repressive behaviour towards other ethnic groupings in China.
In particular, he noted that Beijing is now discussing implementing laws akin to the Hong Kong National Security Law for Tibet, which he said would be like a sword of Damocles hanging over all Tibetans’ heads.
Mehmet Celepci, a migration agent and professional Uyghur interpreter and translator, echoed Tipnak’s call for the international community to do something about the CCP.
Celepci, who spoke about the mass killings of Uyghur men and the rape, torture, forced sterilisation, and enslavement of the Uyghur women, noted that currently, many living abroad are concerned that this situation will destroy Uyghur history and their way of life.
“We need to fight to get rid of the CCP, so we can all have a free breath,” Celepci said. “This regime is the enemy of humanity.”
Echoing both their concerns, Lucy Zhou, PhD, president of the Falun Dafa Association of Australia, noted that the unprecedented number of atrocities currently occurring in China under the CCP could only be compared to the notorious genocide and crimes against humanity committed by the Nazi regime during WWII.
“We come from different groups and may have different beliefs and political views but we share something in common: support for human rights and freedom of belief and a wish to end the suffering of the communist atrocities,” Zhao said. “The CCP tries to silence the free world with trade and intimidation and attack us in isolation.”
“That is why our gathering here today is important because by joining forces, we will make our voice stronger and give courage to the Australian government and the free world to resist the CCP,” she said.
Currently, there is a slow but steady growing alliance of nations pushing back against the increasingly belligerent behaviour of the CCP and the PLA Navy.
In the past year, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, India, Japan, and the United States have all instituted policies and made statements that indicate they will no longer tolerate the aggressive behaviour of the Chinese regime on the issue of Hong Kong, Xinjiang, Taiwan, and militarisation of the South China Sea.
Moreover, both Canada and the United States officially recognised the genocide of the Uyghur ethnic minorities in Xinjiang.
The Victims of the Communist Regime of China: Retrospect and Prospect Seminar brought together representatives from the Tibetan, Uyghur, Falun Gong, Catholic, Christian, Hong Kong, and Chinese democracy groups in Canberra on Feb. 27-28.
