The Delhi Declaration of Tibetan, Uyghur, and Southern Mongolian Rangzenpas
This is the Declaration by the 6th International Rangzen Conference held in Delhi from 16-19 August 2023. This Declaration was formulated with the cross-movement allies from the Uyghur and the Southern Mongolian communities after first two days of deliberation on various aspects of Chinese imperialism, hegemony, and its aggressive colonial rule in Tibet, East Turkestan (Uyghuriye) and Southern Mongolia.
Let this land, the capital of India, on the occasion of its seventy-seventh year of independence bear witness this Declaration:
We declare that we know one day we will break free from Chinese occupation and will proudly hoist national flags of our respective nations and stand together among other international countries as free and independent Tibet, East Turkestan (Uyghuriye) and Southern Mongolia.
We condemn the illegal occupation of Tibet, East Turkistan (Uyghuriye), and Southern Mongolia by China in the strongest terms. The abusive colonial policies of China aimed at the erasure of our respective cultures, nations, and identities from their vibrant existence, amounts to nothing less than a practice of cultural genocide. We declare and reaffirm that we will stand strongly, courageously, and unitedly fight to ensure the end of China’s rule in our countries.
We urge the international communities, free nations, NGOs, and the freedom-loving people of the world who respect universal principles of liberty, fraternity, equality, sovereignty and dignity to call upon China to immediately end the illegal colonial occupation of Tibet, East Turkestan (Uyghuriye) and Southern Mongolia. We remind the international community to respect our long-cherished dream and aspiration for the freedom and independence from China.
