Violence broke out on July 5th 2009 in Urumqi, the capital city of Xinjiang province. According to the Chinese government media 156 people were dead and 1434 suspects were arrested. The real reason of this riot is still unclear, but is believed the violence was caused by ethnic conflict between Han Chinese and the Uighur minority, and its dissatisfaction with the Chinese central government’s handling of the deaths of two Uighur workers in Guangdong. CCTV (Chinese Government media) said An initial investigation shows the violence was masterminded by the separatist group — World Uyghur Congress. The group is led by Rebiya Kadeer, who is a former Chinese businesswoman.

    Film: No fighting, no destruction of property, no riot, just people marcing on a street And yelling, like any protest.

    If it’s a riot you should ‘ve seen the riots in Banqiao from a temple near me almost every Sat morning, people marching in a main street, cymbals, drums banging, carrying big figures, I mean it must’ve been a riot too
