The StandWithUs Center for Combating Antisemitism (CCA) is appalled by the Chinese government's continued atrocities against its Uighur Muslim population. Dedicated to fighting the world’s oldest hatred, antisemitism, the CCA also stands with other minorities who are systematically targeted and discriminated against.
The Chinese government’s treatment of the Uighurs - which includes forced sterilization of women, murder, physical and psychological torture and abuse, forced labor in detention and “reeducation” camps - is an egregious example of a systematic attempt to destroy and break the will and identity of an entire group of people. The CCA calls upon the United Nations Human Rights Council as well as countries around the world to officially acknowledge and condemn these atrocities and to insist upon an end to this genocide. Silence in the face of such barbarism serves only to embolden its perpetrators.
We applaud those who are raising awareness of the plight of the Uighurs and encourage others of good will to speak out.
