Statement of Mr Togochog Enhebatu, President of Southern
Mongolian Human Rights Information Center

"Dear friends from Lao and elsewhere who are fighting for their people's freedom and human rights: "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood". (Art. 1 of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights). On behalf of 5 million Mongolian people in the Chinese Communist dictatorship controlled Southern Mongolia, I congratulate you on your great effort for the fight for your people's basic human rights and fundamental freedom. Freedom and human rights are non-negotiable. Every individual or group has the rights to live free from the dictatorship. However, it is impossible that a nation or a people under dictatorships could gain their freedom and national liberty without a strong ally of freedom fighting peoples from the rest of the world."
