The Chinese foreign ministry is viciously attacking Uyghur Muslims who have the courage to testify from abroad about Beijing's extraordinary detention, repression, and use of forced labor of Uyghurs in Xinjiang. Anything to avoid ending that repression.
If Xinjiang really is such a "wonderful land" where Uyghur Muslims spend their time dancing and singing, then why doesn’t the Chinese government let journalists and UN human rights monitors visit there unfettered? (What detention camps? What forced labor?)
An alliance of NGOs accuses "clothing giants Inditex, Uniqlo, SMCP and footwear manufacturer Skechers" of using the forced labor of Uyghur Muslims in China's Xinjiang region in the production of their goods.
The Chinese government threatens to respond “in kind” to any sanctions imposed over Xinjiang. Far enough. It should sanction anyone who is detaining a million or more Uyghur/Turkic Muslims to force them to abandon Islam, their language and their culture.
Beijing's latest Xinjiang "defense": We may have detained 1+ million Uyghur/Turkic Muslims, separated countless children from their parents, and imposed a highly intrusive surveillance state, but it's ok because we lifted people out of poverty. #NotWorthIt
The Chinese government is deploying its trolls and partisans to demonize and threaten online people overseas who conduct research into Beijing's unspeakable repression of Uyghur and other Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang, such as this Australian researcher.
The Chinese government keeps talking about not wanting "outsiders 'meddling' in Myanmar’s internal affairs" -- meaning the junta can shoot protesters at will (and Beijing can detain Uyghur Muslims at will, crush Hong Kong's freedoms, etc). #AutocratsMantra
This week's trending rights tweets: China blocks UN Security Council action on Myanmar, Ethiopia obstructs humanitarian aid to Tigray, China criminally imprisons Uyghur Muslims, the International Criminal Court opens an Israel-Palestine investigation.
Disney under fire for filming #Mulan in China's Xinjiang Province, the site of alleged human rights abuses on a massive scale, including forced labor and the detainment of over 1 million Uyghur Muslims
A critical step in the fight against torture, internment, & other horrific abuses against Uyghur Muslims. We cannot stand by in the face of these atrocities. Proud I was able to push for strong sanctions provisions in this bill & hope it becomes law ASAP.
BREAKING: My Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act passed the Senate! This sends a clear message that the U.S. will not stand by as millions of #Uyghur Muslims are unjustly imprisoned, subjected to mass surveillance & forced into labor camps by Beijing’s autocratic regime.
Dolkun Isa, President of World Uyghur Congress, in Geneva: Pakistan PM very well knows what Chinese Government is doing to Uyghur Muslims but he doesn't want to talk on this. Pakistan is one of the biggest violators of human rights and China is hiding the reality internationally.
