Newsweek: Q&A: China’s Uighur Protests
April 2, 2008
Tomorrow [Thursday] there will be a large-scale demonstration in Turkey [in Istanbul] because the Olympic torch will come to Turkey, so the Uighurs will stage a very huge peaceful protest there, and also in support of the Tibetans.
Interesting, in light of the earlier reporting that much of the Tibetan hostility was being directed at Muslim (Hui only, or Hui and Uighur?) businesses. It seems entirely likely that there may be as much anti-Hui resentment amongst Uighurs as amongst Tibetans. (Though one would hope that the Hui don’t think of the Uighurs in the same awful terms the Han do.)
