Subject: Travesty of justice
Sep 24 2014 07:46 PM

The arrest & life sentence of Ilham Tohti is a true travesty of justice. It proves yet again the Chinese Govt has no respect for rule of law, due process or even basic human rights guaranteed under Chinese & int'l laws.

Prof. Tohti has never advocated violence or Uighur independence. He has criticized Chinese policies towards Uighurs & called for respect for Uighur rights, culture & religion. None of that is illegal under Chinese law.

Write to your govt leaders to put pressure on China to release Prof. Tohti. Write to the Chinese Embassy in your country & demand that Tohti be released & Uighur rights be respected.
