On 5 February 1997, a demonstration by thousands of Uyghurs in Ghulja was met with deadly force by the Chinese state. At least 100 protesters were massacred for protesting against repression of their culture and freedom. In the days afterwards, thousands were arrested, hundreds of whom were imprisoned, abused or executed.

This February, our monthly protest at the Chinese embassy will remember the massacre 25 years on, and demand freedom for the Uyghur people today.
