Outraged by the newly appointed Chinese principals’ ban of the Mongolian language in the kindergartens, Mongolian parents collected signatures and published open letters via Chinese social media. In the latest development, local authorities failed to address the Mongolian parents’ demands, sparking further protests and inviting strong criticism of the Chinese authorities’ ethnic policy in Southern Mongolia. According to the earliest appeal from the Mongolian parents, “the Ulaanhad Municipality Educational Bureau head Mr. Han Lizhong, ignoring relevant laws and regulations, arbitrarily appointed his close associate Ms. Dai Xiaoli, a Chinese teacher from the former Ulaanhad Municipality 6.1 Kindergarten, to Vice Principal of the Ulaanhad Municipality Mongolian Kindergarten.” “As soon as taking office, Dai Xiaoli  ....

My appeal to the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region Higher People’s Court was rejected. During my imprisonment, I appealed multiple times through my family members. In 2008, I appealed myself in writing, demanding your court to restore my freedom by providing a large amount of evidence to prove that the two charges against me were groundless. Six years have passed. Yet, your court still has not reheard this unfair trial. Here I made available all relevant documents including my previous appeals, court decisions and verdicts before I start this appeal. I have also written the major events during the past 18 years into this appeal. I urge your court to carry out a rehearing and rehabilitation as to bring those officials involved  ....
