Inside China’s Digital Gulag is an extraordinarily brave & shocking film that goes undercover inside China’s Xinjiang province to investigate the estimated million Uighurs forced into detention camps.
This is happening in our time now.
Please watch & share: ITV 1045pm tonight.
Inside China’s Digital Gulag also accesses China’s tech companies rolling out unprecedented algorithmic surveillance on the Uighurs. It’s a chilling story of China’s power now, & vision of a world with unregulated AI, an inescapable dystopia where human rights mean nothing.
There is one moment in the film where a Chinese official casually laughs: “The Uighurs have no human rights”.

Last week, 22 countries, including the UK, sent an rare letter of condemnation to the @UNHumanRights Council & @OHCHR on the Uighur issue.

One of my favorite part of working at UN Geneva offices as part of my sabbatical is seeing democracy in action: protests and demonstrations outside the gates. This morning it was a vocal & desperate group of #Uighur . 1/
I think they are demonstrating at the occasion of the #HRC41 meeting. The Chinese repression of the Muslim minority #Uighur is vast and horrific, yet many colleagues & countries still treat China as a normal collaboration and trading partner. 2/
None of this is ok. I criticize my home countries (USA, UK & Switzerland) for the harm they do, I won't be silent on China or anywhere else.
It was touching witnessing the dedication and courage of these protestors, standing up to one of the most powerful governments on Earth.4/

•China’s Militant atheist regime has forced 1M+ Muslims into concentration camps
•The Muslims are forced to accept atheism, eat pork, & drink alcohol b/c the militant atheists see religion as a disease
•Total silence from the world😓

This is genocide.
To people responding to China’s persecution of Muslims w/“why did Muslims migrate to China in the first place”—learn the facts:
•The persecuted Muslims are ethnically Chinese
•China has a 1400 year history of Islam
•China has more Muslims than does KSA
To be clear—as there’s some confusion from my tweets above—I refer to #Uighur Muslims, not Hui Muslims

I’ve *always* referred to the Uighur Muslims in my numerous tweets on this topic. China annexed their land in 1949 & persecution has grown since

My apologies for the confusion
