Why is China harassing Canadian Uyghurs and why is the government not doing anything to stop it?

Episode 91 – Phil Gurski talks to Uyghur activist Kayum Masimov, Project Manager at Uyghur Rights Advocacy Project

The Canadian Parliament recently (Feb 22) voted to denounce China for its genocide in East Turkestan (what China calls Xinjiang) against the Uyghurs. And yet China is still harassing Uyghur Canadians and pressuring them to shut up. Why is more not being done to stop this?

About my guest Kayum Masimov

Uyghur Rights Advocacy Project is based in Ottawa, Canada, working to promote the rights of Uyghurs and other natives of East Turkistan who are living under Chinese occupation since 1949.

Primary objectives of URAP through documentation and Advocacy Campaign in Canada is to increase the political and public awareness on the unfolding Uyghur genocide committed by China and push for political actions by the government of Canada to address the issue domestically and globally.

Uyghur Rights Advocacy Project will work with multi-faith Canadian and international NGOs, members of academia, think tank organizations in Canada to create strong public pressure on Canadian government and political institutions to implement previously recommended policy actions by the International Human Rights Subcommittee on Oct, 21, 2020.

Seemingly, the government of Canada is walking a tightrope while securing the release of the ‘two Michaels’ and punishing China for the genocide of Uyghurs. Thanking you and your guest.
In my opinion, Canada needs to do more!

What amazes me is how hypocritical the Muslim world leadership is….They see the same things that we all see, yet, not a word, especially from Turkey, Pakistan, Azerbaijan and a few other that push Islam as the solution to all…..while Muslim are put into slave and internment camps However, they will riot and destroy over a cartoon…..
