How to approach media – no use being regarded as minority
I spent the last night reading international press about Uyghurs and the recent incedents. There are also blogs, even within China, that condemn Chinese policy. However, though the press seems in favour of Uyghurs and condemns human rights infringements and press restrictions conducted by China, they all have something in common: they talk about an Uyghur minority in China. And that is the issue that Uyghurs need to tackle. You Uyghurs should reply to all those newspapers, thanking them for their attention and correcting them by telling them that you do not consider yourself a minority in China but Uyghurs in East-Turkistan who are being faced by more and more invading Han-Chinese and a communist regime that you do not want to become a victim of. You need to explain this to the international press that writes about you. You need to explain to them that you are the Uyghur-Turkish people of East-Turkistan with your own language, a very long history, your own culture etc. You need to explain to them that you would like the international community to understand this. Just tell them the truth as it is. There is nothing that you have to be ashamed of. None of the western countries would want to live under communism and forced to speak a foreign language etc. They will all understand you. China follows a policy similar to old times in Germany and Russia. It is a policy that is totally out of fashion. You need to explain to media that you want to be regarded by the world as what you are, namely Uyghurs in East-Turkistan. Tell them that it is no use for you when they talk about you as a minority in China. Explain to them that that is exactly what China is trying to achieve. Just simply go ahead and tell the international media (that writes about you). Also explain to them that the invading Chinese have started to cause you problems and that you would appreciate help from other countries.
