The focus of the protest earlier this week was the imposition of the National Security Law in Hong Kong, the expansion of labour camps in Tibet and crackdown in Xinjiang. 

New Delhi: A massive protest has been planned by several groups in front of the Chinese Embassy in Tokyo on Saturday (October 3, 2020). 

This comes in the backdrop of protests which have already taken place in front of the Chinese mission earlier this week. Around 50 activists protested in front of the Chinese embassy in Japan in groups of five, which was as per COVID-19 protocols. 

This week also saw representatives from Hong Kong, Tibet, Xinjiang, Taiwan, Mongolia and Japan addressing the media at the Japanese parliament’s building on Thursday, October 1. 

The representatives criticised growing human rights violations within China especially in Tibet and restive province of Xinjiang and in Hong Kong. The focus was on the imposition of the National Security Law in Hong Kong, the expansion of labour camps in Tibet and crackdown in Xinjiang. 

Interestingly, the imposition of the Chinese language in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region was also brought up. Anti-China protest has happened in Mongolian capital Ulaan Baatar over the imposition of Chinese language in China’ inner Mongolia region. US secretary of state Mike Pompeo will be visiting the country as part of his Asia visit next week.
