US senators seek to declare China ‘genocide’ against Uighurs Oct 28, 2020 0 248 12345 Washington: US senators sought on Tuesday to declare that China is committing genocide against Uighurs and other Turkic-speaking Muslims, a step that could ramp up pressure on behalf of the estimated one million-plus people in camps. The resolution was introduced by senators across the political spectrum, although it is unlikely to move quickly as the Senate is out of session until after next week’s election. The text states that China’s campaign “against Uighurs, ethnic Kazakhs, Kyrgyz and members of other Muslim minority groups in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region constitutes genocide.” (afp) Pages 12 RELATED ARTICLES Experts weigh in on women’s vote in tight US presidential vote Oct 28, 2020 0 422 Biden heads for Georgia, Trump the Midwest as US election enters final week Oct 28, 2020 0 586 Italy hit by anti-virus protests as infections surge to a new record Oct 28, 2020 0 342 Protests erupt after police shoot dead Black man in Philadelphia AFP New York Protests erupted overnight in Philadelphia after police shot dead a 27-year-old Black man holding a knife in the latest police killing to spark anger in the United States, just a week before the election. .. ‘Structural racism’ killing minorities: UK Covid report AFP London Ethnic minorities in Britain are paying with their lives after years of government neglect has left them uniquely vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic, according to research published on Tuesday by a ..
