Mongolian diaspora from New York; Mr. Sonam Tsering, General Secretary of TYC from Dharamshala in India and Mr. Kai Mueller, Executive Director at International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) Germany from Berlin.

In today’s world when terrorism is being considered as a great threat to the humanity, human civilization and the rule of law, the colonialism and cultural genocide being practiced blatantly by China in Tibet, East Turkistan, and Southern Mongolia the world community should take note of it and confront it as the worst form of terrorism. This was one of the common observations of experts in an international webinar, organized on the eve of China’s celebration of its ‘National Day’ on coming first October. The experts shared the fear that after adding Hong Kong to the list of its colonized territories, China is now threatening to occupy Taiwan also.
As China is preparing for her annual ‘National Day’ and the ‘Golden Week Holiday’ which start on 1st October, representatives of China’s three major colonies namely Tibet, East Turkistan and Southern Mongolia joined hands at an international discussion platform to underline the serious colonial conduct of Chinese rulers against the citizens of these occupied countries.
Mr. Sonam Tsering, the General Secretary of Tibetan Youth Congress, said that China has practiced every tool of colonialism in Tibet since its occupation seven decades ago. Referring to reports coming out of Tibet in recent days he said that Chinese authorities are running a campaign of DNA testing of every Tibetan subject under the garb of testing for Covid-19. He said that serious mishandling of Covid-19 situation by the Chinese administration in Tibet during past two months has caused very serious problems for the Tibetan people. Latest reports show that at least five Tibetans committed suicide because of terrorising conduct of CCP administration and hunger caused by this mishandling.
