He Anquan: Introduction to the Conference “2019 Washington D. C. Anti-Communist China, Pro-independence Movement Round Table Dialogue”
Conference Theme: Nations Long for Independence, People Long for Freedom
Since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) usurped the homelands of multiple nations including Tibetans, Uyghurs, Mongolians, Machurians, Hans, etc. with violence in 1949, it has been exerting oppression and genocide policies upon those captive nations, depriving 1.4 billions people of their basic human rights, and burying them in endless fears and tremendous sufferings. The situation got even deteriorated since the dictator JingPing Xi coming into power. Three millions ethnic Uyghurs and Kazakhs are imprisoned in the “re-education camp”. There were more than one hundred and fifty Self-immolation protests by Tibetans protesting Chinese Tyranny. Hundreds of thousands Taiwanese congregated in Taipei and demonstrated against the Taiwan media controlled by CCP. Two million Hongkongers took to street under the tear gas launched by brutal cops and protested against the “Extradition to China” bill. This unprecedented mass demonstration in human history has lasted about two months. After the 70 years of CCP tyranny and the two thousands years of “Great Systemic Whole”(Da Yi Tong) despotism, in order to exodus from the historical bog composed of the oppression on nations and the slavery of people, all the enslaved nations that live in the territory currently called “China” must hold high the flags of anti-communism and anti-unified-China, and fight in synchronized efforts to realize the independence of all nations and the liberation of all people.
Mr. Ilshat H. Kokbore, the co-organizer of this conference, is a renowned Uyghur social and political activist who has fought for the independence and liberation of East Turkistan and against the atrocity of Communist China for many decades. He has been serving as the President of the Uyghur American Association since 2016. He speaks Mandarin fluently. He devoted tremendous time and efforts to support the Chinese democratization movement abroad and established wide connection with Chinese dissidents. Because of his fight against Chinese tyranny, the Chinese government gravely persecuted his family members in China. His younger brother was brutally killed by Han people. His father passed away in the grievance of losing his son. Mr. Kokbore’s mother and three younger sisters have been disappeared from the public and lost their connection with the rest of the world until today.
With the increasing conflict between Uyghur people and Chinese government, and some people’s attempt to cover the large-scale ethnic persecution and genocide with the alleviated and blurred concepts like human rights violation, Mr. Kokbore felt the necessity to hold a roundtable conference focusing on the independence of the captive nations in China, coordinating all pro-independence and pro-liberation organizations (including those who support the independence of Hong Kong nation) to work and fight together in the manner of “the alliance among the captive nations who are advanced in independence and those who lag behind”, and promoting the great cause of throwing off the totalitarian ruling of Communist Chinese Government and liberating the captive nations. After many rounds of discussions and preparations, we set the conference date as Friday, August 23rd, 2019, in the United States Capitol, and invited the representatives of various pro-independence organizations to set down together, communicating and learning from each other about how to liberate the captive nations that are currently enslaved by the evil empire of China.
