On October 1, 2004, the 55th anniversary of the birth of Communist China, members of Inner Mongolian People’s Party European branches gathered in front of the Chinese Embassies to Germany, Sweden, and Norway to protest the Chinese Communist Party’s oppressive policy in Inner Mongolia.

The Inner Mongolian People’s Party (IMPP), named after the “New Inner Mongolian People’s Party” of the Cultural Revolution, was originally established in the United States in 1997 by exiled dissidents from Inner Mongolia. The IMPP’s mission is to “uphold the principles of democracy and peace in fighting to end the Chinese Communist Party’s colonial rule in Inner Mongolia and ultimately to achieve the independence of Inner Mongolia.”

The demonstrations started at noon simultaneously in front of the Chinese Embassies in Munich, Stockholm, and Oslo, and protestors held high the dark-blue flag of the Inner Mongolian People’s Party and banners of “Free Inner Mongolia”, “Release Hada”, “Stop persecution in Inner Mongolia” with shouts of “We want Freedom!”, “We want Human Rights!”, “Release Hada!”

“I am lucky, and I am enjoying freedom now,” said one protestor, Mr. Shinjilt, a newly arrived United Nation political refugee in Sweden, who was sent to jail in1995 for participating in the Southern Mongolian Democratic Alliance and joining a demonstration in Inner Mongolia, “because, unlike in China, here no police arrests us when we gather to express our opinion.”

“Nothing is improved in Inner Mongolia,” says Mr. Temtsiltu Shobtsood, president of the Inner Mongolian People’s Party and the leader of the well-known student movement of Inner Mongolia in 1981. “Human rights situation in Inner Mongolia is getting worse. Mr. Hada is still in prison, and the authorities continue to harshly crackdown on every single peaceful activity. Fifty seven years’ experience tells us that the only solution for the future of the Inner Mongols is to end the Chinese Communist Party’s colonial rule in Inner Mongolia and gain our independence through peaceful means.”
