DC Uyghur restaurant owner: ‘This Olympic is genocide Olympics’
Uyghur restaurant owner says why he cannot watch the Beijing Olympics
By Jon Michael Raasch | Fox NewsWashington, D.C. – Uyghur restaurant owner, Hamid Kerim, said he cannot watch the Olympics because it reminds him of his brother and sister-in-law who are imprisoned in his home of Xinjiang.
“If I watch this Olympic, in my eyes I can see my brothers, my sister, my nation and my motherland. His very difficult life in jail. Very difficult life in camp very difficult life in cheap labor factory. So, I cannot watch this Olympic,” Kerim told Fox News.
The 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing have been boycotted by Uyghurs and human rights advocates for granting legitimacy to China despite its persecution of ethnic minorities. The genocide against the Uyghurs in the western Chinese province of Xinjiang has been ongoing since 2017, according to a 2020 report released by the State Department.
