I was told that #Xinjiang #Uighurs were kept in concentration camps.
I lived in Kashi Xinjiang when I was a kid, I even know a little bit Uighur language, like Yakexi, Dabazha, Balang.
I followed Xinjiang people on Douyin (China tiktok) randomly.
Here is their life.
This is a very beautiful scenery of Xinjiang.
This Douyiner used his drone to photograph many landscapes and buildings in #Xinjiang.
He was not caught for shooting in the sky with a drone.
Please follow him if you have a Douyin account, you can explore more Xinjiang scenery.
This #Xinjiang #Uighur girl is sharing her life in a funny way to tell everyone about the climate of Xinjiang.
The temperature can reach 65 degrees Celsius during the day, but very very cold at night.

1/#China #bully seems to have recovered enough from #ChineseVirus & is back to its old #rowdy behavior of provoking border clashes in Sikkim
indianexpress.com/article/world/…
With its Govt, #China can never be a friend. #Trump இந்தியாவை "மிரட்டி"யதற்கு கெட்ட ஆட்டம் போட்ட கோமாளிஸ் எங்கே😂
2/ After indulging in nonsensical acts, #China indulges in usual blabber, "committed to uphold peace", "on border issue, our position is clear & consistent" etc.
The provocation is because India thwarted dragon march by amending #FDI act preventing takeover of Indian entities
3/ Bully back to its #rowdy behavior. #China Govt is that incorrigible.
Refusing to see reason, take lessons is the hallmark of a dictatorial regime.

1/ The quarantine is a cultural and political experiment: We're seeing just how quickly the U.S. can be dissolved. #ProtestLockdown

clarionproject.org/coronavirus-go…
2/ If Americans stand down, the U.S. openly becomes a surveillance state overnight. LA and NYC mayors are already pushing out 'comfort' 🍼videos telling residents to activate themselves as surveillance extensions of the state. #ProtestTheLockdown

3/ Google, often first in helping authoritarian rule boot stomp a population, has also risen to the occasion along with Apple. Watch this tweet for a sub-thread on how Google and Apple help nations crush its civilian population.

Police suddenly rushed into crowd, apprehended at least 2, beat 1 badly w batons, peppersprayed wildly (I got it badly in the eye), raised black flag warning of teargas & called off #HK #Uighur solidarity rally. Angry crowd has scattered. So typical.
More photos of sudden police attack on #HK #Uighur solidarity rally. When police retreated w arrestees, they were pelted w bottles, then rushed forward, threatening teargas & calling off rally. Grossly irresponsible. Pardon if photos suck-can hardly see due to pepper spray in eye
Police swooped when a PRC flag was pulled down from the flagpole outside City Hall (next to Edinburgh Place). You can see the flag under one of the people police apprehended in the photo above.

Edinburgh Place is full for the #HK rally in solidarity w #Uighurs . In our nearly 800 protests since 6/9, this is only the 3rd to stand for others. There was a small 1 at CUHK for Uighur uni pres rumored sentenced to death & 1 for Catalunya.
Great to see the #EastTurkestan & #Tibet flags flying at the #HK solidarity rally for #Uighurs. Our fate is tied to theirs. We all have to fight together for our freedom & our rights.
Free #IlhamTohti , Free All Political Prisoners at #HK rally for #Uighurs . Ilham just received EU parliament’s #SakharovPrize this week. He’s serving life in prison in China on the entirely false charge of ‘separatism’. His daughter @JewherIlham accepted the award on his behalf.

(THREAD) There are over ONE MILLION #Uighur Muslims in Chinese internment camps right now...here's what you need to know:
Over the past 3 years China has forced Uighurs and other Muslim minority groups into camps as an ongoing effort to "re-educate" and "counter terrorism."

Chinese authorities deny claims of violence + refer them as voluntary “education centers.”

However, based on stories from survivors and internal government documents leaked in November, the harrowing truth has been revealed. @nytimes

Thread on Quran burning in #Norway:
I live in the same city where the Quran was burnt on Saturday last week in #Norway. Those who burnt the Quran were hardly 5 people. Norwegian community in Kristiansand came out in large numbers in a show of solidarity with Muslims.
Police were present at the demonstration site and tried to stop the burning of the Quran even though there’s no law in Norway that restricts burning Quran, bible or any books. A brawl broke out between a demonstrator and leader of very little-known org
”Stopp Islamiseringen av Norge”(Stop Islamising Norway ). It was in violation of Norwegian laws and the police quickly subdued it. People of Kristiansand including its Mayor Harald Furre strongly condemned this act.

(Thread) A Million People Are Jailed at China's Gulags. I Managed to Escape. Here's What Really Goes on Inside.

Twenty prisoners live in one small room. They are handcuffed, their heads shaved, every move is monitored by ceiling cameras.

haaretz.com/world-news/.pr…
A bucket in the corner of the room is their toilet...Torture – metal nails, fingernails pulled out, electric shocks – takes place in the “black room.” Punishment is a constant. The prisoners are forced to take pills and get injections. It’s for disease prevention,
the staff tell them, but in reality they are the human subjects of medical experiments. Many of the inmates suffer from cognitive decline. Some of the men become sterile. Women are routinely raped.

We are hosting Olsi Jazexhi, @parlabest Rukiye Turdush and @cburton001 Charles Burton to speak about Canada's response to China's #Uyghur crisis.
@parlabest speaks about the plight of the Uyghurs and the grave human rights violations being committed by Chinese authorities. #Uyghur #Uighur
Chinese authorities say U.S. power is in decline and assume that they can persecute the Uyghurs without consequences. There is ample evidence of human rights violations. Internment camps, forces disappearances, eye witness accounts

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
