The new US limit on cotton & tomato products from Xinjiang due to Uighur forced labor "is a drop in the bucket. The Chinese government has shipped Uighur prisoners to factories across China...There’s virtually no way to guarantee" the lack of forced labor.

JUST IN: Twitter has locked the account of China's embassy in the United States for a tweet that defended China's policy in Xinjiang.

EXCLUSIVE: For years, human rights activists feared the Xinjiang detention facilities doubled as work camps. For the first time, satellite photos confirm China has built acres of factories inside the compounds, facilitating forced labor on a vast scale.

China has destroyed 8,500+ mosques in Xinjiang, says a new report based on satellite data. Researchers say China has also built or expanded 380 camps holding Uighurs and minorities since 2017, telling @guardian  it is like NYC building "55 prisons only for Black Americans."

To make Mulan, Disney worked with four propaganda departments in the Chinese region of Xinjiang, the site of a genocide against Muslims. (Apologies, messed up the thread the first time). Here's the story of this insanity:

To make Mulan, Disney worked with four propaganda departments in the Chinese region of Xinjiang, the site of a genocide against Muslims, and the Xinjiang public security bureau. This is a horrific. Here's my article on the subject, and a thread on why.

Disney is under fire for filming parts of #Mulan  in Xinjiang province, where over one million Uighurs have been detained in internment camps.

NEW Bolton book excerpt in WSJ: In June 2019, Xi "explained to Trump why he was basically building concentration camps in Xinjiang. ... Trump said that Xi should go ahead with building the camps, which Trump thought was exactly the right thing to do."
