Ilham Tohti is not going to be freed anytime soon. The USA is not campaigning for his release, not when Trump is in charge anyway. Trump is not Moslem friendly. You may have to wait for Trump to leave office. Meanwhile keep your fingers crossed that Ilham does not die in jail. Trump would rather call Xi Jinping up and talk nice to China to release 3 basketball players who were caught shoplifting than to call Xi to talk about Ilham Tohti.

This Award is recognition of Prof. Ilham Tohti's bid for his peoples' rights which is: rule of law, implementation of the regional Autonomy Laws and ethnic harmony based on mutual resdpect and co-existance!
This Award is the best moral support for a liberal Uyghur intellectuel like IT who sacrificed his freedom, his family and his property for his peoples' basic human rights!

This Award is very important support for peacefull and democratic struggle of the Uyghur people for their freedom and basic human trights!

This Award is another signal of the democratic world to President Xi Jinping that the International community is aware of his human rights violations and would NOT tolarate it!

And it is a signal to orther Democratic Parties in the world to to deal more seriously with the Human rights issue!
