Edinburgh Place is full for the #HK rally in solidarity w #Uighurs . In our nearly 800 protests since 6/9, this is only the 3rd to stand for others. There was a small 1 at CUHK for Uighur uni pres rumored sentenced to death & 1 for Catalunya.
Great to see the #EastTurkestan & #Tibet flags flying at the #HK solidarity rally for #Uighurs. Our fate is tied to theirs. We all have to fight together for our freedom & our rights.

PLEASE SHARE, A MAN’S LIFE HANGS IN THE BALANCE.

‘Ablikim Yusuf’ a #Uyghur from Hotan prefecture of #Xinjiang aka #EastTurkestan. Currently he is being held by Qatar authorities at Doha airport and he is to be deported to #China where he’ll likely face a severe punishment.
Abulikemu Yusufu, who was deported from Bosnia to China, is now at Doha Hamas International Airport, waiting for the flight to China. His life will be in grave danger if he’s forcedly returned to China. Please help stop his repatriation!
We urge the United Nations, European Union, and other governments, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and other non-government organizations to take urgent action to save ‘Abulikemu YUSUFU’ and save him from deportation to #China.
