The voice of the Uyghur communication group of the Taiwan Parliament: "Human rights for Taiwan, freedom for Uyghurs!"

"Taiwan Parliament Uyghur Communication Group" is the eighth "Uyghur Friendship Group" established under various names in foreign parliaments. Shen Boyang, the current president of the group, said, "Taiwan should not stand by Beijing's genocide of Uyghurs, as well as its human rights violations in Tibet and Hong Kong. If Taiwan does not stand up today, it will not have a chance to stand up again."

Taiwan's "New Talk News" (Newtalk Newspaper) reported on June 27 that in order to insist on the real achievement of democracy and freedom and support the Uyghurs with practical actions, the ruling Democratic and Progressive Party of the Taiwan Parliament, led by Shen Boyang, this term's member of parliament, 27 - In June, it was announced that the "Taiwan Parliament Uyghur Communication Group" had been established.

The report titled "China should be accused of genocide: Shen Boyang continues 'Taiwan Parliament Uyghur Contact Group'" mentioned that the Chinese government's human rights abuses and repressive policies in Hong Kong, Tibet and Uyghur have been increasing in recent years. Also, it is mentioned that various specific actions are being taken in the international community to support the Hong Kong people, Tibetans and Uyghurs who are facing the oppression of China.

Mr. He Chaudong, the chairman of "Taiwan East Turkistan Association" (TETA), said that the "Taiwan Parliament Uyghur Communication Group" was officially established on April 23, 2021. The person who serves as the chairperson of the group will also change. Mr. Shen Boyang, a member of Taiwan's parliament, continued to hold the chairmanship.

Explaining this, he explained: "Today's continuation of the 'Taiwan Parliament Uyghur Communication Group' shows the continuity of our work and the great sense of responsibility we have for this work." Because it means that we continue to care and pay attention to the human rights of the oppressed. One of the most concrete examples of this is that on December 27, 2022, Taiwan's parliament passed a resolution confirming China's genocidal policy in the so-called Xinjiang, that is, East Turkistan. Among the parliaments of these Asian countries, Taiwan's parliament is the first to recognize the genocide that China is carrying out in East Turkistan.

According to the report, Shen Boyang, chairman of the "Taiwan Parliament Uyghur Communication Group", stressed that democratic countries around the world can only resist the invasion of authoritarianism if they unite their forces. He also expressed his hope that Taiwan's parliament would not only vote on human rights issues, but also include human rights in the foreign policy agenda of Taiwan's parliament.

Lawyer He Chaudong said that Mr. Shen Boyang, the current chairman of the "Taiwan Parliament Uyghur Communication Group", is a mature politician in the fields of politics, diplomacy, scientific research and law, and is one of the talented young members of the Taiwan Parliament. In his speech, he explained that the slogan "Human rights for Taiwan and freedom for Uyghurs" was the fundamental point of Taiwan's human rights and freedom for Uyghurs.

He said: "Of course, Taiwan should actually get rid of some of the bad things that the Chinese Kuomintang regime left in Taiwan, that is, to be more precise, Taiwan must promote the example of a human rights country in Asia. Currently, various practical actions are being taken to legalize the issues raised by non-governmental organizations and human rights groups in Taiwan. Under such conditions, everyone now wants to strengthen and deepen relations with all democratic countries in the world in order to create a universal common value of human rights. Therefore, the issue of human rights in Taiwan is our long-standing goal. Of course, when we talk about the freedom of Uyghurs, East Turkistan region and Uyghurs should have freedom and basic human rights. Because we know that 80 years ago, in 1933 and November 12, 1944, the East Turkistan Republic was established and an independent country was declared to the world. It is very obvious that the basic human rights of the citizens of that country can be truly guaranteed only after the establishment of an independent country.

On June 27, the former president of the Uyghur Association of Japan attended the construction ceremony of the "Uyghur Communication Group" in Taiwan. In his speech, he emphasized that as a result of his direct efforts, the "Japan Parliament Uyghur Friendship Group" was established on April 26, 2012, consisting of 62 members of parliament. He noted that the "Uyghur Communication Group" established in Taiwan's parliament was established with the support of 24 members of parliament from Taiwan.

He believes that Taiwan's parliament's support for Uyghurs on human rights and freedom issues is invaluable.

Taiwan's "New Conversation News" website said that the mission of the "Taiwan Parliament Uyghur Communication Group" is to cooperate with various national assemblies that support Uyghur human rights to implement things such as banning forced labor products from entering Taiwan, as well as "caring for the human rights of the oppressed." can be included in the list of the most important issues on the foreign affairs agenda of the Taiwan Parliament.

Lawyer He Chaodong said that it is necessary for the "Taiwan Parliament Uyghur Communication Group" to get the support of international democratic organizations and form a common body together with them to stop the Chinese Communist Party's genocidal policy. Another important issue is that one of the working goals of this group is to prevent the entry of Uyghur forced labor products into Taiwan through the laws and regulations drafted in Taiwan, as well as to revise the laws and regulations on resource rights in the "human rights of the oppressed" issue. He announced that the "Taiwan Parliament Uyghur Communication Group" will work on specific issues under this common goal.

"Taiwan's struggle for freedom and democracy is a very difficult process, just like the Uyghur issue. That's why it's so important for everyone to come together and work hard, and set specific goals one by one. Only then can everyone work together. Through this, we can comprehensively fight against the suppression and infiltration of the Chinese Communist Party. Our common enemy is Communist China. In my opinion, this is the biggest prerequisite, so everyone must unite and join hands. "In fact, China under the rule of the Chinese Communist Party and its loyal Chinese citizens are a threat to world peace."

During our visit, lawyer He Chaodong noted that members of parliament in this group have noticed that the Chinese government has changed the names of villages in the Uyghur region in recent years, especially places where the Uyghur population is densely populated. When he talked about this, he mentioned that the Kuomintang Party, which is not much different from the Communist Party of China in terms of authoritarianism and dictatorship, added the so-called "China" flavor to the names of many places in Taiwan at that time and changed them to the same names as the provinces and cities in mainland China. He believes that Taiwan and Uyghur are "destined partners" in the case of changes in China's place names and cultural genocide.

It is reported that on June 27, the "Taiwan Parliament Uyghur Communication Group" continued construction ceremony on behalf of the President of the Taiwan Parliament Han Guiu, the Deputy Secretary General of the Parliament Zhang Hanong participated. Tibetan spiritual master Dalai Lama's representative in Taiwan, Kelsang Gyaltsen, spoke at the ceremony. The ceremony was also attended by representatives of the World Uyghur Congress, Uyghur Human Rights Foundation, and Japan Uyghur Association.
