ADHRRF – On January 12, about one hundred rallied at the Place de la République to condemn the totalitarian tyranny of Chinese Communist Party (CCP), call on the French government to pay attention to the situation of Uyghur people, and urge China to release the Uyghur detainees immediately.
At 3 p.m. local time, nearly a hundred of people from the Association of Uyghurs in France (Association des Ouïghours de France), Amnesty International France, the Association for the Defense of Human Rights and Religious Freedom (ADHRRF), The Church of Almighty God (CAG), Students for a Free Tibet (Étudiants pour un Tibet Libre), and some other groups gathered at the Place de la République for solidarity with Uyghur people. The participants held placards saying “release one million innocent Uyghur people immediately,” “close concentration camps right now,” “stop violence,” and so on, to protest against the Chinese Communist authorities’ arbitrary arrest and detention of Uyghur people in large scale and call for urgent action of the French government to urge China to immediately release millions of Uyghur people detained in concentration camps.

A petition calling on Washington to take up the case of coronavirus reporter Chen Qiushi, who is being held by the authorities in enforced “quarantine” after he reported from the front line of the COVID-19 epidemic, has garnered tens of thousands of signatures since it was posted last month.
