Enghebatu Togochog speaks at the Hong Kong Rally in New York (SMHRIC - 20190419)

The following is a speech Mr. Enghebatu Togochog, Director of the Southern Mongolian Human Rights Information Center (SMHRIC) at the Hong Kong protest at the Time Square, New York on June 9, 2019:

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, On behalf of the Southern Mongolian community in exile, I am honored to be here today to stand in solidarity with our friends of Hong Kong to show our support to the people of Hong Kong to protest the proposed China Extradition bill.

As the world’s largest authoritarian regime, not only did the Chinese Government carry out a series of genocide, ethnic cleansing, political oppression, economical exploitation and environmental destruction in the occupied nations of Southern Mongolia, Tibet and East Turkistan, but also it is stretching its long arm to democratic Hong Kong and de facto independent Taiwan.

Despite China’s suppression of freedoms in Hong Kong, particularly the rights to free expression, association and political participation, we see hope and optimism. We see a new umbrella movement is unfolding. A half million citizens of Hong Kong took to the streets today, protesting the China Extradition Bill. The Hong Kong authorities must reconsider this bill, must stop violating the rights of their citizens. What does this telling us is that people power is much superior than government power. As Desmond Tutu said, “once a people or nation makes up their mind to free themselves, no force on earth can stop them.”

I strongly believe, one day, Hong Kong will be free, Tibet, Southern Mongolia and East Turkistan will be if we genuinely believe in our people power.

Thank you.

Enghebatu Togochog
