People's Republic of China: Rebiya Kadeer's personal account of Gulja after the massacre on 5 February 1997
This is the witness testimony of Rebiya Kadeer who does not want those who lost their lives in Gulja ten years ago to be forgotten. She also calls for accountability on the part of the Chinese authorities. She tells of the dozens of people killed or seriously injured, on February 5th 1997, when Chinese security forces brutally broke up a peaceful demonstration in the city of Gulja (Yining) in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR) of China. Hundreds, possibly thousands, lost their lives or were seriously injured in the unrest that occurred the following day.
