Need to end China's long game on human rights: Geneva Human Rights Forum

           ...  Thupten Samphel, Director of the Tibet Policy Institute, laid out the significance of religious policies for Tibetans with particular view on the appointment of Tibetan religious leaders, such as the Dalai Lama. He criticized the Vatican’s recent agreement with the Communist Party on the appointment of Catholic bishops in the PRC and expressed concern about the concept of “sinicizing religion”, which would have a lasting and extremely negative effect on Tibetan culture and Buddhist religion. Professor Dru Gladney of Pomona College gave an overview of the effects of the BRI on Uyghurs. While arguing that Chinese policies themselves have led to a “Xinjiang problem”, he expected the BRI, being “globalization with Chinese characteristics”, to cause more pressure on Uyghurs. Engebathu Togochog, director of the Southern Mongolia Information Centre, gave an overview of the history of assimilation policies in Southern Mongolia.

Joint Press Statement - China UPR

           ...  We, the undersigned, express deep concern over the removal of valuable stakeholder information by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) for consideration by UN members states ahead of the 3rd Cycle Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the People’s Republic of China. The UPR process, undertaken through the UN Human Rights Council, explicitly welcomes constructive contributions from civil society to address human rights challenges and promote universal human rights norms. All of the undersigned groups submitted reports through the OHCHR’s online platform before the deadline of March 29, 2018 as individual organizations or as joint submissions to be considered by states in the preparation of their recommendations, and by the OHCHR in its official summary of information from civil society.

SMHRIC statement at "Resist Xi Jinping - Dictator of Unfree World"

           ... Today, we Southern Mongolians, Tibetans, Uyghurs, Taiwanese and Chinese are here to express our strong protest to the Chinese Government and the Chinese leader Xi Jinping as the United Nations General Assembly is being held here in this building behind us. As you all know China is a colonial power that invaded and colonized Southern Mongolia, Tibet and East Turkistan. And the Chinese regime is an authoritarian regime that not only oppresses the people of these occupied nations but also oppresses their own people, and even is extending its long arm to Taiwan and beyond. Today, we talk about terrorism. We talk about ISIS. We talk about extremism. But, the world is still indifferent to what China is doing to the Southern Mongolians, Tibetans, Uyghurs, and Chinese themselves.
