Erdogan Is Turning Turkey Into a Chinese Client State
With few friends left in the West, Ankara is counting on Beijing for help foreignpolicy.com/2020/09/16/erd…
Since early 2019, Turkey has arrested hundreds of #Uighurs and sent them to deportation centers. And Erdogan’s remarks have turned diplomatically bland, just like any Uighur-related coverage in newspapers controlled by Erdogan and his supporters.
Erdogan’s remarkable U-turn has a simple explanation: His regime and Turkey’s economy are in crisis. With few other friends, Ankara is counting on Beijing to patch things up, and that requires adherence to Beijing’s talking points. #UighurGenocide

The US, Allies Sanction Chinese Officials Over Uighur ‘Genocide’

A display of unity, the European Union, Canada, and the United Kingdom imposed sanctions on the same individuals as well, the Treasury Department said.
S- @TheQuint
The sanctions come after the first face-to-face meeting between top Chinese & US diplomats in Alaska.

In a joint statement by the intelligence alliance made up of the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, & New Zealand, the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said

“The evidence, including from the Chinese Government’s own documents, satellite imagery, and eyewitness testimony is overwhelming."

Let me get this straight. The Chinese gov't says it can't share anonymized data about the origins of the pandemic due to privacy concerns while the same gov't is forcibly extracting genetic samples from #Uighurs, #Tibetans, etc. Hmmm. news.cgtn.com/news/2021-03-1…
The collection of genetic data in #China "is being done without consent because citizens living in an authoritarian state have virtually no right to refuse." If anonymized data can be shared safely in democracies it can be shared safely everywhere. nytimes.com/2020/06/17/wor…

China has detained my young children. I don't know if I'll ever see them again @SecBlinken I am a Uighur who was forced to flee Xinjiang five years ago, leaving four of my children who are now in an ‘orphan camp’ theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
When I left my children five years ago, I did it in a rush. I didn’t have time to grab any memento's, any toys. All I took was a single family photo. #Uighurs
At the time, my husband and I felt we had no choice. As Uighurs in Xinjiang, the Chinese authorities had been harassing us constantly and demanding that we give up our passports. There would be “consequences” if we didn’t.

Looking forward to what should what should be an interesting webinar on how The West could develop "a balanced relationship" with 🇨🇳 #AsiaScot
Chair @mtpurbrick calls the West’s relationship with #China “one of the most complex challenges facing the West”. Notes there is no joined-up strategy for engagement & tensions between #Trade relations & issues of #HumanRights & #Democracy abuses #AsiaScot
Chairman of @AsiaScotlandIns, @gow_roddy, says that today’s webinar is at “an opportune moment” as it coincides with a meeting of the CCP to decide their future direction until the 2030s #AsiaScot

Chinese labour schemes aimed to cut Uighur population density – report
Accidental publication adds to growing body of evidence of Beijing’s efforts to persecute minority
#UighurGenocide #Uighur @potus @vp @SpeakerPelosi

theguardian.com/world/2021/mar…
Chinese labor programs in Xinjiang are designed at least partly to reduce the population density of the Uighur ethnic minority group, according to a study accidentally published online.
The Chinese report, by academics of Nankai University, was taken down in mid-2020, but a copy was archived by the academic Dr Adrian Zenz.

Genocide is the ultimate violation of human rights and constitutes a crime against all of humanity. #UighurGenocide
Regardless of where genocide is being committed, the community of nations has both a moral obligation to forcefully condemn the perpetrators and to intervene to protect the victims. #XUAR
According to a 2021 report by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Communist regime that rules China has detained at least one million ethnic Uighurs and members of other Muslim groups in Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region in the northwest part of the country.

1/19 I regret that my Epoch Times investigation isn't finished yet & I'm going fast as I can

With that said, this #thread is another teaser & I'm giving it early release because of its implication to the #UighurGenocide vote in #CDNpoli today & how MPs have been sorely misled
2/19 #CDNpoli #Uyghur #UighurGenocide

First off, the Conservative party pressure to force a vote in Canada is due to a campaign concocted by Steve Bannon, to squeak through his agenda (continuing Trump's agenda) to force a war with #China before Prez Biden can get up to speed
3/19 #UighurGenocide

They're capitalizing on right-wing ownership of most #CDNmedia to disinform #CDNpoli about the #Uyghur issue, without the threat of being fact checked

Our dystopian news climate is being used to manipulate @JustinTrudeau into painting @POTUS into a corner

There are specific linguistic tics that can signal deceit. Words reveal.

LOOKING AT WHAT @JustinTrudeau SAYS and focusing on one element worth taking a look at: namely, his use of the qualifier "extremely". It is a non-essential amplifier. Its repetition, weightage of ±
placement and in particular, the peculiar intensity with which he enunciates it. TRUDEAU uses it twice (0:10; 1:32), in a lengthy English response (1 min 27 sec).Like bookends, at the beginning of his response and again,at the end. His enunciation in each instance is unnatural. ±
To be clear, there are no absolute "tells" that can definitively (or singularly) indicate deception. THAT SAID, TRUDEAU's use of "extremely" taken with a cluster of features (i.e. pauses filled with utterances "ah" "um" "er" and "uh", vocal tension, postural shifts, head nods ±

AS @JustinTrudeau hums and haws, chattering about alphabets - THAT he must ensure “all the I’s are dotted and the T’s are crossed” before citing #China ...

Erdogan Is Turning Turkey Into a Chinese Client State
With few friends left in the West, Ankara is counting on Beijing for help.🙄 #UighurGenocide #Uighurs foreignpolicy.com/2020/09/16/erd…
“The incidents in China are, simply put, a genocide,” Erdogan said in 2009, when he was prime minister. #UighurGenocide #Uighurs And it wasn’t just empty words: Turkey has been a safe haven for Uighurs fleeing persecution
Then came a sudden, unexpected switch. In 2016, Turkey arrested Abdulkadir Yapcan, a prominent Uighur political activist living in the country since 2001 and initiated his extradition.#UighurGenocide #Uighurs

This tweet below has been rattling around my head all morning. @britsforuyghurs arranged a protest, calling for a stop to the #UyghurGenocide. The number of people in attendance fills me with a personal shame. Read their handmade signs.

We're not dealing in speculation, exaggeration or rumours here. We're dealing in facts.

"FORCED STERILISATION of Uyghur Women".

Organs harvested. Hair shaved and sold. Why does that not shake us ALL to the core of our bones?

This respectfully asks President Xi, one of the most powerful people on earth, to stop a very public genocide. Xi's representatives sit on @UNHumanRights Council - his ambassadors tell us all to respect human rights - as China disappears an entire people under our noses.

Xi is unfairly using early recovery from #COVID19 for external encroachment and internal consolidation. Chinese aggression in all domains will be rebuffed globally, led by powers suffering the most.

In China a huge gulag system for Uyghurs has emerged in recent years and the world knows next to nothing about it.
According to a study, China has had more than 380 detention camps built for members of Muslim minorities in western Xinjiang province since 2017. At least 14 facilities are still under construction,
according to a study by the Australian think tank "Australian Strategic Policy Institute" (ASPI). The findings contradict Beijing's statements that the mass internment campaign in the region is being cut back.

This is happening NOW

And we all need to wake up to it

An investigation “identified 315 sites that are currently being used as part of China’s mass detention programme”

Between Jun & Sept, more than 300 captives had been tortured to death”

Innocent people being dragged from their homes with no warrant

And why?

“They were charged with mainly two indictment:

1. The crime of creating disturbances i.e. they had too many kids. 

2. Disturbing the public peace i.e. growing long beard and/or long hair”
No lawyer allowed. No appeal.

“They were sentenced for 5 to 10 years in prison

“For the first 3 days, water was cut off, they were not allowed to drink, and the temperature was over 37

“Every midnight, the ambulances carrying corpses transferred them away”
