Some days are different from others, they bring back pain and haunt us with dark memories. 5th February is one such day for the Uyghur community. That day in 1997, Uyghurs gathered in Ghulja (East Turkestan) , to save their land but thousands of them didn’t return.
Uyghurs in Japan gathered on the streets on Saturday to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Ghulja Massacre, Uyghur Info wrote on Twitter.
Today, on February 5th, another painful commemoration takes place for Uyghurs. The Ghulja Massacre took place 25 years ago when the Chinese government terrorized the Uyghur people in one of the most bloody crackdowns in recent history.
