“Human Rights Council should investigate China’s mass detentions in Xinjiang: a call to action”
Over recent months, UN officials, human rights organizations, and independent journalists have painted an alarming picture of the sweeping arbitrary detentions of Uyghurs and other Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang, a region in northwestern China.
Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, the World Uyghur Congress and the International Service for Human Rights call on the United Nations Human Rights Council to urgently adopt a resolution establishing an international fact-finding mission to investigate credible allegations that up to one million Turkic Muslims are being arbitrarily detained in “re-education” camps across China’s Xinjiang region.
