Selin ATAY-TDG- The Belgian Uighurs Association and Turkish NGOs gathered in front of the EU Council building in Brussels, the capital of Belgium, reacted to the repression and torture against the Uighur Turks in East Turkestan.
Hundreds of people carried banners and posters engraved with slogans such as "Freedom for Uighurs," "Stop genocide," "Close concentration camps."
Protestors claimed that about 3 million Uighur folk songs have been locked up in concentration camps by China. Moreover, China does not want these facts to be known to the world.
It was also emphasized that setting up concentration camps was a violation of human rights.
Abdulmuttalip Omerov, President of the Belgian Uighurs Association, said in a statement that the Chinese government had implemented repressive policies, banning Muslims from fasting and praying.
