Germany. Germany-based rights organization World Uyghur Congress will be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2024. The rights organization was nominated for the 2024 Nobel Peace Prize on Wednesday for being the people’s voice for human rights and supporting the peaceful independence of the Uighurs. This is the second time this group has been selected for the Nobel Peace Prize. Earlier in the year 2023 also, this human rights organization has received the Nobel Peace Prize.

The nomination for the Nobel Prize was submitted by Canadian MP, Vice-Chair of the International Human Rights Subcommittee Alexis Brunelle-Ducep and Senator of the Italian Republic and former Italian Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi, WUC said in a press conference. Dolkun Isa, President of the World Uyghur Congress, said in a press release that it is a matter of pride and honor to see the World Uyghur Congress nominated for the Nobel Prize for 2 consecutive years. This nomination contributes significantly to the recognition of WUC’s valuable efforts to advance democracy and human rights for Uyghurs. Issa said that this two-time Nobel Peace nomination sends a powerful message. Which highlights the urgent need to take action against the Uyghur genocide being carried out by China.

Powerful message against authoritarianism

The nomination of the World Uyghur Congress for the Nobel Peace Prize sends a powerful message against authoritarianism. It is important for the international community to acknowledge and condemn the genocidal policies of the Chinese Communist Party against Uyghur Muslims. The statement said that CCP is against Uyghur Muslims. The WUC nomination papers highlighted the nonviolent approach that the Uyghur people have chosen despite continuing to face harsh repression. Therefore, the international community should not take such efforts lightly.
