Inside the World Uyghur Congress: The US-backed right-wing regime change network seeking the 'fall of China'

(People's Daily Online)    17:46, March 16, 2020

Editor's note:

On March 5, The Grayzone, an independent news website dedicated to original investigative journalism and political analysis, published an article revealing the truth behind the World Uyghur Congress (WUC), a so-called grassroots human rights organization advocating for the Uyghurs in China but is actually a US-funded and directed separatist network that has forged alliances with far-right ethno-nationalist groups. The goal of the group, according to the report, is to destabilize China and promote regime change in Beijing.

In recent years, few stories have generated as much outrage in the West as the conditions facing Uyghur Muslims in China. Reporting on the issue is typically represented through seemingly spontaneous leaks of information and expressions of resistance by Uyghur human rights activists struggling to be heard against a tyrannical Chinese government.

The report further noted that nearly everything that appears in Western media accounts of China’s Uyghur Muslims is the product of a carefully conceived media campaign generated by an apparatus of right-wing, anti-communist Uyghur separatists funded and trained by the US government.

The report reiterated that the WUC is not a grassroots movement, but a US government-backed umbrella for several Washington-based outfits that also rely heavily on US funding and direction. Today, it is the main face and voice of a separatist operation dedicated to destabilizing the Xinjiang region of China and ultimately toppling the Chinese government.

While seeking to orchestrate a color revolution with the aim of regime change in Beijing, the WUC and its offshoots have forged ties with the Grey Wolves, a far-right Turkish organization that has been actively engaged in sectarian violence from Syria to East Asia.
