China Committing Genocide Against Uyghurs

China’s policies in East Turkistan and their treatment of Uyghurs and other Turkic Muslims in the region constitute a genocide as defined in the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crimes of Genocide (the Genocide Convention). The Genocide Convention was unanimously adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 9th, 1948 and entered into force on January 12th, 1951. China is a signatory of the Genocide Convention which makes it obligated not to commit genocide as well as take measures to prevent and punish the crime of genocide. Despite this, China has been fulfilling all 5 elements which constitute a genocide, including;

(a) Killing members of the group;

(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;

(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;

(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;

(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
