How long will the Chinese government’s oppression of the ethnic minority groups continue?

I wonder how long and to what extent the Chinese government will infringe on human rights of the ethnic minority groups in China. Since I cannot disregard their miserable situation, I am participating in various organizations’ activities to support and rescue them. On October 1, the National Day of the People’s Republic of China, an assembly of the representatives of those ethnic minority groups living in Japan was held in close cooperation with other similar assemblies around the world at the Diet Members’ Office Building in Tokyo, and I served as a coordinator of the participants of the Japanese Diet members.

The Association of the Diet Members for rescuing the Uyghur ethnic minority group in the Uyghur autonomous region in China held a meeting on November 18 for the first time in three years. The Association is led by Mr. Keiji Furuya, a member of the House of Representatives and a member of the Liberal Democratic Party. A shiver ran down my spine when I heard about one family’s horrible story reported at the meeting. The speaker was raising the photo of the missing family high regardless of the risk of being oppressed by the Chinese government authority, and I was overwhelmed by the speaker’s strong determination to rescue the missing family. I do not understand which part of the Chinese Communist Party’s ideology justifies the Chinese government’s oppression of the ethnic minority groups. In my opinion, this issue should be resolved as soon as possible by urging the organizations throughout the world to work in close cooperation with us and promote their movements against the Chinese government’s unacceptable oppression of the ethnic minority groups.
