The unrest in China is not just a single event, it’s actually widespread and has been going on for an extended period of time. There are many areas where unrest by national minorities have become commonplace, with the majority of these taking place in rural parts of China.
Here are 11 areas that we will explore:
1) Xinjiang-Uighur Autonomous Region
2) Gansu Province
3) Tibet Autonomous Region
4) Qinghai Province
5) Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region
6) Ningxia Hui Autonomous Regional Districts (Chinese: 宁夏回族自治区; pinyin: Níngxià Huízú Zìzhìqū) .
The 11 Areas in China where National Minorities have exhibited unrest are, Xinjiang-Uighur Autonomous Region, Gansu Province, Tibet Autonomous Region, Qinghai Province, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and Ningxia Hui Autonomous Regional Districts.
These areas all demonstrate the presence of ethnic minorities that live in rural regions of China with a history of unrest against their government. Xinjiang has been experiencing continual demonstrations for decades from its Uyghur minority population who would like to see independence or reformation as an autonomous region within China rather than being governed entirely externally by Han Chinese authorities.
