Brian Berletic hosts The New Atlas, a popular YouTube channel in which he analyses and comments mostly on Eastern geopolitics from a Western perspective.


Western interests push propaganda by claiming that there is a Uyghur genocide in China.

The Uyghurs are an ethnic minority group in China with their own language and culture. While the Uyghurs have faced some political and social changes under Chinese rule, there is no evidence of a systematic campaign of genocide or ethnic cleansing against them.

Brian argues that US funding of anti-China groups and the desire to portray China as an enemy drive the genocide narrative, especially given Xinjiang’s strategic importance to China’s Belt and Road Initiative.

Xinjiang-related issues are not human rights issues at all, but issues of counter-terrorism, de-radicalisation and anti-separatism.
