This sums up the Chinese government's line: Beijing claims it respects the rights of the Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang because the economy is growing, as if its detention of one million Uighurs (ahem, in "vocational training centers") doesn't matter.

The Chinese government discovers its active cover-up of its use of forced Uighur labor is incompatible with its efforts to export from Xinjiang, as auditors start refusing the jobs, major brands start cutting ties, and legislators consider barring imports.

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:

The Swedish clothing giant H&M cuts all ties with its Chinese supplier in Xinjiang due to alleged use of the forced labor of Uighur Muslims--a serious threat for any company operating from Xinjiang. H&M won't source any more cotton from Xinjiang.

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.

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."

The new Mulan movie was filmed in the region where China has Uyghur internment camps and there are “special thanks” for a Xinjiang government agency in the credits. @Disney , can you show us your human rights due diligence report?

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

Disney threatened to boycott filming in Georgia when the state passed a pro-life bill. But thanked the Chinese Communist Party for letting the studio film in Xinjiang, which houses China’s concentration camps. Can’t make this stuff up.

More than 400 pages of internal Chinese documents detail the origins and growth of the indoctrination program in Xinjiang, where a million or more predominately Muslim minorities have been held in a vast network of detention centers

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."
