The official story is that the Chinese government has been engaging in a systematic campaign against the Uyghur minority population in the Xinjiang province of China.
This campaign has been described as a “genocide” or “ethnic cleansing”.
Apparently, the Chinese government has implemented a range of policies and practices targeting Uyghurs and other Muslim minority groups in Xinjiang, include mass surveillance, arbitrary detention, forced labor, cultural assimilation, restrictions on religious practices, and other human rights abuses. Large numbers of Uyghurs have been detained in so-called “re-education camps” or “vocational training centres.”
The claim is that hundreds of thousands, or possibly over a million, Uyghurs have been subjected to these camps in which they are subjected to indoctrination, forced labor, psychological and physical abuse, and other forms of mistreatment.
Brian Berletic, of The New Atlas, explained why it’s false.
Something to consider is that the prevailing Western narrative is significantly influenced by US funding through the National Endowment for Democracy (NED).
This funding extends to key Uygur NGOs, which have had a formative impact on US policies, including the Uygur Forced Labour Prevention Act. The act operates on the presumption of forced labour in Xinjiang, placing the onus on businesses to prove otherwise.
United States’s aggression towards China has been escalating in recent years because, basically, China’s economy is growing while America’s has slowed, and Washington is not happy and is trying everything to portray China as the world’s enemy.
There is no Uyghur genocide, physically or culturally.
