From a distance the violence in East Turkestan (home to the Uighur ethnic group) seems to be the end result of a deliberate policy of ethnic/cultural cleansing. For decades the Communist authorities have been encouraging and engineering the resettlement of ethnic Han (the dominant ethnic group in China) into the region - in 1949 the Han made up 6% of the population, today it's 40%.
This map above is a fair picture of what the region should look like...
The age of multi-ethnic empires and supranational states began to crumble twenty years ago with the Soviet experience, and just as the USSR and its vassals left the world stage, the imperialist Peoples' Republic must go the same way. The 20th Century was defined by macro-ideologies that saw identity, culture and tradition as hurdles to be overcome. As the anti-human idea of Marxism flounders and the 'alternative' of global capitalism continues to do its worst, the old ideas associated with the localist mindset of identity, culture, tradition and self reliance, are well placed to fill the vacuum and begin to replace shallow One Worldism with the the positive ideal of vibrant ethnic communities, independent of, yet mutually respectful of one another.
CCP IMPERIALISTS OUT OF EAST TURKESTAN!
FOR A WORLD OF 10,000 FLAGS!
AUTONOMY NOW FOR THE UIGHURS AND ALL ETHNIC GROUPS!
