May 1, 2004








May 1, 2004 is the 57th anniversary of the establishment of Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region. In order to protest against the Chinese government’s systematic cultural assimilation, population transfer, and grassland destruction policies and colonial regime in Inner Mongolia, members and supporters of Inner Mongolian People’s Party from Sweden held a demonstration in front of the Chinese Embassy to Sweden in Stockholm City.

The demonstration started at noon, and protestors held high the dark-blue flag of the Inner Mongolian People’s Party and banners of “Free Inner Mongolia”, “Freedom and Democracy”, and shouted loudly the slogans of “we want freedom!”, “we want human rights!”, “release Hada!”

At 3:00 pm, protestors marched at Downtown Stockholm and joined the May Day Parade with Uyghur protestors. Among the thousands of demonstrators who held colorful flags and banners, Inner Mongolian and Uyghur protestors also held high their own flags and banners and shouted loudly the slogans of “Free All Political Prisoners”, “we want independence!”, “return us freedom!” They condemned the Chinese Communist Party’s heavy handed ethnic policies and gross human rights violations in the minority regions of Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, and Tibet, and urged the freedom-loving people around the world to support anti-CCP struggles of the Inner Mongols, Uyghurs, and Tibetans.
