We have good news for the last day of September: prompted by the president of the European Uyghur Institute, Dilnur Reyhan, today fifty-five French deputies launched a group of solidarity towards the Uyghurs.
Responding to the severity of the situation, and after years of inaction at the level of national government in a number of European countries, these deputies have stated that they are ready to shoulder their responsibility and face up to the abominable situation in which the Uyghur region finds itself. Having called out the cowardice of democratic countries supposedly committed to the defense of human rights, they decided to change this tendency towards disavowal and took a first step towards a more humane world.
The Uyghur diaspora, and especially the European Uyghur Institute, based in Paris, thank the members of this group for their action and trust in their sense of justice in following through with this initiative, all the while hoping that other deputies will follow their example.
