China is trying to strangle

my people in their cradle...

and kill them before their

voice reaches the world.

They said the Chinese

government already realized...

how dangerous it would be...

if Rebiya Kadeer receives a Nobel Peace Prize.

Therefore, the Chinese government

wants to stop Rebiya Kadeer...

from receiving the Nobel Peace Prize.

Omar Kanat, you always give me great ideas.

I always use some of your words

when people interview me.

Firstly, it says my country is

Xinjiang in Western China.

While I am a Uyghur leader, I will

never use such a word in an article.

I'd rather not publish such an ugly article

it is a betrayal and insult to the Uyghur


Listen, laws work for you in America.

Don't worry about them, worry about yourself.

Say that a solution to the East Turkestan

problem is a solution for Central Asia.

Didn,t you talk about the importance

of Uyghurs and Eastern Turkistan?

We did, we did say those...

I did say those things.

Yes, Mom?

Why can,t you all just come to my house?

It's only an hour away, right?

Come straight to my place.

Well, then I'll pick you up at your place.

Alright. See you later.

Go keep Mom company while I'm gone.

Are you tired, Elyar?

Go to bed. You have school tomorrow.

Elyar, can you go get me

a blanket from the other room?

I am from Altay...

in the Northern region of East Turkestan.

In summer, we swam in the rivers...

and rode the horses.

We picked flowers from the mountains.

Bird calls created a wonderful music.

The environment was beautiful then.

When the Communist Liberation Army


they played a really smart game.

They hand-picked certain people...

and positioned them at the front of the


to applaud the army,s arrival

You see, in the beginning, the soldiers

just started to clean everywhere.

They would help old people carry water.

They used to treat people who were sick.

They did a lot of good things.

After two months,

they started to make demands.

They said all Uyghurs who are rich

and making money...

are devils and are taking money

from ordinary people.

They told us these Uyghurs must be


Rich Uyghurs were executed in every village.

Any Uyghur who spoke out

was killed or imprisoned.

The government implemented a plan...

to spread us throughout

our homeland to separate us.

My father was branded as a capitalist.

Therefore, when I was a young child,

we were forced to move south to Aksul.

So to control the Uyghurs, they

disempowered them, made them poor.

Second, they gave them no proper education

and third, they took their religion.

At this point, Uyghurs began to open their


But it was too late. They were already


Every time there was a resistance, I wanted

to be a member and join their movement.

I was proud of them, of what they were doing.

They were my heroes.

At this time my ex-husband,s

salary was very low.

He earned only seven dollars a month.

I had six kids, I couldn't live on this.

So I began to secretly embroider

designs on kids shoes and clothing.

Eventually my embroidery work

was found out.

As my ex-husband was a communist

party member and cadre,

the government bank where he worked

pressured my husband to divorce me.

I experienced much hardship

when I started my business...

as people didn,t have respect for me.

But I proved them all wrong.

I travelled through many villages...

and saw the poor state of my people.

As I became more successful,

I understood why the Chinese government...

left Uyghur people disadvantaged.

When you,re poor,

you can,t organise with others...
