值此,2009年7月5日、

东突厥斯坦首府乌鲁木齐和平示威引发民族冲突三周年之际,美国维吾尔人协会(UAA)发布维吾尔人权项目:《你能倾听我们吗?来自2009年乌鲁木齐骚乱的呼声》报告中文版。本报告英文版于2010年早已发布;本报告通过见证事件维吾尔人之口检测整个骚乱。《你能倾听我们吗?来自2009年乌鲁木齐骚乱的呼声》深入调查研究引发骚乱的经济、社会、政治因素,同时调查骚乱发生之后的信息封锁。

美国维吾尔人协会希望能够就2009年乌鲁木齐事件、东突厥斯坦民族关系现状,和世界各国华人社团展开对话。今天,在东突厥斯坦‘和谐’只存在于官方宣传,身居要位政府官员不顾‘民族团结’的宣传,有目的的使维吾尔人和汉人间的关系日趋恶化;所以这种对话就显得尤为重要。东突厥斯坦仍然处于极端高压;值此惨案三周年之际,乌鲁木齐也早已处于高度军事戒备状态。中国政府始终拒绝独立调查员进入东突厥斯坦对乌鲁木齐事件进行一全面、彻底调查。

7 月及10月实施的任何暴力都应该被谴责,不管这暴力是由维吾尔人、汉人还是中国军警实施的;但是,中国政府却极力将事件归咎为单单是一群维吾尔暴动者‘打、砸、抢、烧’、攻击汉人居民的骚乱,这远不是事件真相。中国官方报道中遗漏的部分:是军警用恐怖手段、对和平示威的维吾尔人进行的残酷镇压导致的大量维吾尔人人员伤亡;7月5 日晚开始针对维吾尔社区的大规模暴力搜捕导致的成千上万维吾尔人的失踪;以及汉人居民7月和10月份针对维吾尔社区维吾尔人的攻击、打杀。

乌鲁木齐居民对维吾尔人权项目详述了见证军警7月5日使用真枪实弹、镇压和平示威维吾尔游行队伍的事实;详述了7月份和10月份汉人居民追打致死维吾尔人的事实、以及军警不问青红皂白、不加区别的对维吾尔人进行抓捕的事实,使早已显现的维汉隔阂日趋恶化。向维吾尔人权项目叙述的事实真相使我们有理由怀疑中国政府对事件真相的报道,并由此确认独立调查人员及国际调查员对事件真相进行调查的必要性

2009年7月5日,维吾尔男人、女人和孩子聚集在乌鲁木齐市的人民广场进行和平集会、抗议政府对广东韶关玩具厂汉人攻击维吾尔员工事件的不作为。

那一天及其后的几个月发生事件的详细细节,到现在为止都不是很清楚;但清楚的是乌鲁木齐突然间进入了死伤无数的史无前例的巨大动荡。

和维吾尔人权项目报告提供事实相一致,国际大赦报告有关乌鲁木齐动乱也提供了7月5日维吾尔人被军警打死的事实。国际大赦及人权观察都记录了7月5日武断、残暴地逮捕维吾尔人的事实。见证者指出对维吾尔人的抓捕不仅违反国际法而且也违反中国自己的法律。

中国政府在2009年骚乱之后的第一时间,将骚乱原因归咎于海外维吾尔人组织、暴徒、阴谋者、分立主义及恐怖主义。

自2009年7月5日起,中国政府不遗余力地以恐吓威胁手段企图使维吾尔人噤声、沉默,而且极力压制同政府对事件描述不一致的任何信息。阻断了通讯交流,对维吾尔网站管理人员及记者的极端镇压使该地区官方得以控制事实真相的浮出。

这使得世界获得事件真相的信息除中国政府提供的版本外、极其稀缺。

《你能倾听我们吗?来自2009年乌鲁木齐骚乱的呼声》,揭开了2009年事件、中国政府版本的黑幕。维吾尔人权项目工作人员通过采访2009年7月和10月期间在乌鲁木齐的维吾尔人、外国人获得的信息、提供了完全不同于中共版本的事件真相。

本报告以维吾尔人叙述角度深度透析2009年7月和10月份发生动乱、及在那段时间的强制信息阻断和对维吾尔人的抓捕。《你能倾听我们吗?来自2009年乌鲁木齐骚乱的呼声》为维吾尔人提供了一个平时很难在中国及国际舞台上倾诉的机会。

维吾尔人权项目新报告:被恐怖和沉默主宰的城市:乌鲁木齐两年后

************************
The Uyghur Human Rights Project (UHRP) issues a Chinese-language version of its report on the 2009 unrest in Urumchi

For immediate release
July 5, 2012, 03:36AM EST
Contact: Uyghur American Association  +1 (202) 478 1920

On the third anniversary of the unrest that took place on July 5, 2009 in Urumchi, the regional capital of East Turkestan, the Uyghur American Association (UAA) is releasing the Chinese-language version of UHRP’s report Can Anyone Hear Us? Voices From The 2009 Unrest In Urumchi. The report, published in English in 2010, examines the unrest through the accounts of Uyghur eyewitnesses. Can Anyone Hear Us? Voices From The 2009 Unrest In Urumchi also investigates the economic, social and political factors that set the context for the unrest, as well as the information lockdown that followed.

UAA hopes to engage the international Chinese-speaking community in dialogue regarding the events of 2009 and the state of ethnic relations in East Turkestan today. This is especially important as, three years after the unrest, “ethnic harmony” in the region only exists in official propaganda, and key government officials have actively worked to exacerbate tensions between Han Chinese and Uyghurs, in spite of “ethnic unity” propaganda. The region remains subject to intense security crackdowns, and the security presence has been heightened in Urumchi to mark the anniversary of the July 5 unrest. Chinese officials have thus far refused to allow independent investigators to visit East Turkestan to allow a comprehensive accounting of the events in Urumchi.

Violence that was perpetrated by Uyghurs, Chinese and Chinese security forces in July and September 2009 in Urumchi should be condemned. However, Chinese officials have aggressively portrayed the unrest in Urumchi solely as an episode of “smashing, looting and burning” carried out by Uyghur rioters who attacked Chinese residents of the city. Missing from Chinese official narratives have been accounts of a terrifying police crackdown on peaceful Uyghur demonstrators on July 5, resulting in an untold number of dead; the indiscriminate nature of detentions and forcible disappearances that were carried out beginning that evening; and the attacks that were carried out on members of the Uyghur community by Chinese residents of the city in July and September of 2009.
 
Residents of Urumchi who spoke to UHRP have described witnessing security forces’ use of deadly live fire against Uyghur demonstrators on July 5, extensive beatings of Uyghurs by civilians in July and September and arbitrary detentions that have exacerbated the growing divide between the Uyghur and Han communities. The accounts provided to UHRP cast sufficient doubt on the Chinese government version of events that should compel an independent and international investigation into the unrest.

On July 5, 2009, in the city of Urumchi, Uyghur men, women and children peacefully assembled in People’s Square to protest government inaction over a deadly attack on Uyghur factory workers in Shaoguan, Guangdong Province.

The details of what happened that day, and over the following months, have been unclear. What is known is that the city erupted into unprecedented unrest that resulted in the deaths of an unknown number of people. In line with accounts provided by UHRP in its report, Amnesty International’s report on the unrest in Urumchi provides accounts of the deaths of Uyghurs at the hands of security forces on July 5. Amnesty and Human Rights Watch have also documented the arbitrary, brutal nature of detentions of Uyghurs carried out by armed Chinese security forces in the wake of July 5. Witnesses to the arrests of Uyghurs indicate that the arrests were carried out in violation of Chinese and international law. In the immediate aftermath of the July 2009 unrest, the Chinese government separately blamed anyone from Uyghur overseas forces, mobsters, plotters, separatists and terrorists for fomenting the unrest.

Since July 5, 2009, Chinese officials have spared no effort to silence and intimidate Uyghur voices, and have actively sought to suppress information that contradicts the official narrative. A communications blackout and harsh punishments for Uyghur webmasters and journalists aided official efforts to manage and control information emerging from the region.

This has left the world with scant information about the unrest besides the Chinese government version. Can Anyone Hear Us? Voices from the 2009 Unrest in Urumchi lifts the veil on the Chinese government account of the 2009 unrest. In interviews conducted by UHRP staff, Uyghurs and foreigners who were in Urumchi in July and September 2009 have provided information that starkly contrasts with the government’s version of events.

The report gives a rare insight into Uyghur accounts of the July and September 2009 unrest, as well as the information lockdown and detentions of Uyghurs that occurred during the period. Can Anyone Hear Us? Voices from the 2009 Unrest in Urumchi gives a forum for the Uyghur voice that is seldom heard within China and the outside world.

The Chinese-language version of the report, Can Anyone Hear Us? Voices From The 2009 Unrest In Urumchi, can be downloaded at http://docs.uyghuramerican.org/Can-Anyone-Hear-Us-chinese.pdf.
