Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China Launched on The 31st Anniversary of Tiananmen Square Massacre

Tiananmen

Iain Duncan Smith MP is right to  say today that “The passing of Hong Kong’s National Security Law in Beijing’s National People’s Congress last week surely marks the end of the naive optimism that has underpinned the West’s policy towards China over the last four decades”

He knows that it will take a multinational effort with international reach to rein in China.

 

So, it is very welcome news that, on the 31st anniversary of the massacre of pro-democracy activists in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square, IPAC,  a  new global cross-party political grouping, has been launched to unite democratic countries in their response to Beijing’s aggression.

It’s the admirable brain-child of Luke de Pulford – one of the leading  advocates for the people of Hong Kong, vigorously defending their human rights, and the territory’s Basic Law and autonomy.

 

With an impressive team of advisors and participating Members the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China has brought together experienced and distinguished legislators from across the world – from Left, Right and Centre.

 

They argue that By developing a common set of principles and frameworks that transcend domestic party divisions and international borders, our democracies will be able to keep the rules-based and human rights systems true to their founding purposes.

 

This is as welcome as it is long overdue and I look forward to joining.

For the Uyghurs, Genocide is a word which dares not speak its name. For the sake of women like Rahima Mahmut, Gulzira Auelkhan, Sayragul Sauytbay, and Ruqiye Perhat – whose heart-breaking, shocking, stories are recorded here – it’s time that the crime of genocide was given definition in the UK. On January 19th Parliament can use its voice and speak that name – insisting on justice for victims of Genocide and refusing to make tawdry trade deals with those responsible for the crime above all crimes.
