Massive Protests Break out in Inner Mongolia

Massive protests broke out in the Chinese autonomous region of inner Mongolia over the weekend. It was against a move by Beijing that some consider to be a new round of “cultural genocide.”

Local Mongolians in Inner Mongolia never call themselves Chinese, but Mongolian.

They’ve remained steadfast in their resistance against Beijing’s Communist regime for decades and their fight reached a peak over the weekend.

People there call their land Southern Mongolia. The protests began, after a secret order from Beijing was leaked. It dictated that in all schools, teaching in the Mongolian language would be replaced with using the Chinese language, starting from this September.

The US-Based Southern Mongolian Human Rights Information Center called this a new round of “cultural genocide.”
