In a united stand against human rights abuses, Uyghur, Tibetan, and Hong Kong human rights groups organized a protest in San Francisco ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s appearance at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit. The Uyghur American Association and Uyghur Human Rights Project took to social media to announce the gathering, marking a significant cross-movement alliance.
On November 15th, at 9:30 am, protestors convened outside the Chinese Consulate in San Francisco, creating a powerful display of solidarity. This demonstration represented one of the largest collaborative efforts among various human rights groups, including those advocating for Uyghur, Tibetan, and Hong Kong rights.
The groups came together to raise their voices against President Xi Jinping, accusing him of being an architect of genocide. Through their collective efforts, they aimed to shed light on the Uyghur genocide and other human rights violations and draw attention to the urgent need for international intervention.
The protest underscored the shared commitment of these diverse advocacy groups in exposing and condemning actions that they perceive as severe violations of human rights.
