Over 100 global rights groups call for the immediate release of Mongolian writer and activist Munkhbayar Chuluundorj

           ...  We urge the Mongolian government to immediately release Mr. Munkhbayar Chuluundorj who was arbitrarily arrested in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, by the General Intelligence Agency (GIA) of Mongolia on February 17, 2022. Mr. Munkhbayar Chuluundorj is an award-winning Mongolian journalist, poet, and human rights activist known for defending the linguistic, cultural, and historical identities of Southern Mongolians. Mr. Munkhbayar Chuluundorj was detained in Ulaanbaatar on politically motivated charges related to his public criticism of the Mongolian government’s close ties with China and the shrinking rights in Southern Mongolia [CH: Inner Mongolia], which China has occupied since 1949. His arrest and sentencing took place amid China’s increasingly severe policies in Southern Mongolia that aim to remove learning in the Mongolian language for several key subjects. These restrictive policies are similar to those rolled out by Chinese authorities in Tibet and East Turkistan [CH: Xinjiang], and recent moves to replace Cantonese education in Hong Kong with Mandarin. Mr. Munkhbayar Chuluundorj was sentenced to 10 years in prison on June 28, 2022, for “collaborating with a foreign intelligence agency” against the People’s Republic  ....

Letters from Munkhbayar Chuluundorj concerning his case

           ...  I am a longtime activist who has worked to defend the human rights of Southern Mongolians for years. The Chinese government’s policy of banning the Mongolian language in schools and society at large in Southern Mongolia led to widespread protests and demonstrations in the summer and fall of 2020. Citizen support of Southern Mongolia had never been as widespread. I actively took part in these protests and demonstrations as an organizer and coordinator. At this time, I started getting to know a foreigner who supported human rights activism for the cause of Southern Mongolia. Since my “case” was labeled “top secret” by the Mongolian authorities, I am afraid I cannot divulge any further details—but I did nothing but tell the foreigner that I would continue my activism for universally accepted and respected human rights. On February 17, 2022, Mongolian General Intelligence agents arrested me by force without any legal justification while I was walking down the street and searched my residency without a warrant, confiscating the cash, documents, phones, and computers of my family members. They returned all these items, except for my phone and laptop, to my family a week later as they failed to find any evidence  ....

Tortured by Chinese State Security agents in Thailand, Southern Mongolian activist faces deportation

           ... On October 5, 2022, Mr. Adiyaa (shown as “Wu Guoxing” on his Chinese passport), a Southern Mongolian activist in exile who has already obtained refugee status from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, was arrested by the Thai immigration authorities at his rented residency in suburban Bangkok. Immediately after the arrest, Adiyaa was forced to meet with Chinese embassy officials on multiple occasions in a small cell at the Bangkok Immigration Detention Center, without any Thai personnel present. Embassy personnel accused Adiyaa of “breaking Chinese relevant laws,” including “illegally occupying other’s property,” and asked him to sign a letter of “admittance to guilt and willingness to return to China.” Adiyaa refused to sign. On October 19, four Chinese State Security agents in uniform visited the Detention Center where Adiyaa is being held. One agent identified himself as an officer dispatched by the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region Public Security Bureau. As Adiyaa consistently refused to sign the letter, the four agents took turns repeatedly beating him until he capitulated to signing all the papers the agents had prepared. “It is all too clear that the Thai Immigration Bureau is ganging up with the Chinese State Security  ....

Webinar: "Celebration of Colonialism by China"

           ... As the Communist China is preparing to celebrate her 74th anniversary of the founding of the brutal regime, here I would like to list out her major atrocities committed in Southern Mongolia in chronicle order to give you an idea of how our sovereign nation has been reduced to merely a cultural entity. In 1949, soon after her establishment, China annexed Southern Mongolia by force and called it “Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region” and promised “Nationality Autonomy”. The same model was later used in Tibet and East Turkistan. The past 73 years tell us that the so-called “nationality autonomy” is a lie and what fate awaited us was nothing but a series of genocide, ethnic cleansing, political repression, economic exploitation, cultural eradication and environmental destruction. All these atrocities are planned carefully and implemented in a systematic manner. For example: First in the 1950s, the Chinese carried out a so-called “Anti-National Rightist Movement” to purge the Mongolian elites. Tens of thousands of Mongolians were persecuted; Then the Chinese took away the military rights of the Mongolian after using the Mongolian cavalries to put down Tibetan uprising; In the 1960s through 1970s, the Chinese committed their first  ....
