Death of the woman warrior

           ...  It had been already 7 weeks traveling all over Mongolia; from the Gobi Desert in the south to the northern Mountains next to the Russian border, from the far west where the Kazakh Mongols live to the hectic capital city Ulaanbaatar. Now it was time to visit the eastern side of Mongolia and after a 25-hour travel I reached Choibalsan which was just 50 km away from the Chinese border. It could have been already enough to fulfill my explorer ambitions, however in that town I visited a fascinating museum of Mongolian history where I found a map pointing several spots of historical interest on the easternmost town of Mongolia, Khalkhgol. It was located 450 km away on the south-east and when asking the museum receptionist his answer was "road is terrible and there is no transport heading to that direction. It is impossible to get there". He had just said the magic word which triggers the challenge mode on. Pursuing to know deep and deeper Mongolia’s history I was about to find out the remarkable life story of The Woman Warrior. I woke up at dawn, went to the street market and started asking and   ...

A letter of gratitude to the Southern Mongolian Human Rights Information Center

           ...  I am writing to express my heartfelt respect to you for your tireless and selfless work for the cause of all  Southern Mongolians. We are truly proud of you for your great effort to take up these noble yet arduous tasks for making our voice heard on the international stage and telling the truth to the world on behalf of our fellow Mongolians. In contrast, from video clips and other news reports, one can easily see how shameless the People’s  Republic of China is. Not only are we tired of hearing about the Chinese doctrine of “harmony among the 56 nationalities”, we are also offended by the idea of it. Under the pretext of “ethnic harmony”, the Chinese have occupied the lands of national minorities and set up settlements through deception and violence. The so-called “ethnic harmony” is not something that the Chinese make any effort to actually realize, but is something that the Chinese demand from national minorities through violence and force. If the Chinese are indeed serious about “territorial integrity”, why do they destroy mother earth, open up mines recklessly and pollute the air and water, threatening not only the  ....

A statement of solidarity from a Tibetan, Uyghur, Southern Mongolian, and Chinese activist

           ...  2016 has been a year of tumultuous, global social injustices and human rights violations. From Syria to Brazil, Russia to Burundi, governments around the world have openly broken fundamental, international laws that exist to protect the freedoms of people around the world, and give them justice. For those living under China’s rule human rights conditions have continued on a steep downward spiral. Human rights defenders in China remain casualties of the State’s aggressive campaign against peaceful dissent, underling a direct contradiction with President Xi’s vow to promote the "rule of law." In the past 12 months the Chinese regime has rounded up hundreds of human rights defenders in an unprecedented, indefensible crackdown against lawyers and activists; has flagrantly disregarded religious freedoms by implementing a ban on fasting during Ramadan in East Turkestan, and forcefully evicted thousands of Tibetan monks and nuns from their homes at Larung Gar in eastern Tibet. The Party has enforced draconian surveillance laws and systematic, long-term security measures as part of an intensified   ....

Statement of the Southern Mongolian Human Rights Information Center (SMHRIC) to the US Congressional Executive Commission on China (CECC)

           ...  Dear Chairperson Christopher Smith, Co-Chair Marco Rubio and distinguished members of the Commission, It is my great honor to have this opportunity to bring to your attention the deteriorating human rights conditions and worsening humanitarian crisis in the Mongolian areas in China. 14 years ago, on August 5, 2002, on behalf of the Southern Mongolian Human Rights Information Center (SMHRIC), I testified before the Commission and brought to the attention of the Commission the specific human rights violation cases including the cases of political prisoners Mr. Hada, Mr.Tegexi and the Chinese authorities’ state-sponsored forced displacement of Mongolian herders from their ancestral lands. We are truly grateful to the Commission for its great effort in the past 14 years to raise public awareness of human rights issues of the Mongolian people by including a great deal of information we provided into the Commission’s annual reports as well as updating its political prisoner database with the cases of Mongolian dissidents and activists who have been arrested, detained and imprisoned by the Chinese authorities   ....
