Petition to the Minister of Foreign Affairs

Whereas:
  • The Uighur are experiencing cultural genocide in China as over a million of their own people have been put in internment camps.
  • The Uighur have been tortured, and in some cases outright killed by Chinese Authorities
  • Uighurs who live abroad face psychological torment and harm as their relatives in China get arrested and put into camps for retaliation against them
  • Even foreign nationals who visit China get harassed, forcibly deported by the authorities and in some cases go missing in China if Chinese officials believe they have connections to Uighur citizens
  • The Chinese government through consulates and embassies are collaberating with Chinese students associations across Canada to squash discussion on the debate of the Tibetans and Uighurs under Chinese rule.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Minister of Foreign Affairs to condemn the Chinese government in the strongest terms for the mistreatment of not only Uighur citizens both in China and abroad, but as well as foreign nationals visiting China in relation to the Uighur and to punish the Chinese Government and officials who are perpetrating this act of barbarity through sanctions.
