1-Çin işgal ettiği bölgede, #Uygur lara yaptığı baskıyı İŞİD üyeliğine ve dinci terörizme bağlıyor. Acaba gerçekler öyle mi? #China yalanlarına gözlerimizi kapatarak Türklüğü Çin tehditinden kurtarabilir miyiz?

2-Günümüzde #Türkistan adıyla anılan 6milyon km2'lik bölgenin 4milyon km2'yi aşkın kısmı #BatıTürkistan, 2milyon km2'ye yakın kısmı da #DoğuTürkistan olarak adlandırılmaktadır. Bölge #Türk halklarının en eski topraklarından biridir.
3-Bölgenin Batı kısmının büyük bölümü Rus işgalindeyken SSCB'nin dağılmasıyla bağımsız olmuş, doğu kısmı ise halen Çin işgali altındadır. Çinliler Türklerin en eski komşularından biri ve 3000 yılı aşkın süredir, Çin ve Türk beylik dönemlerinden beri ezeli düşmanlarıdır.

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

This brave #Uyghur #Muslim girl, still resides in #Xinjiang aka #EastTurkestan is indicating that four of her relatives are in #China's #ConcentrationCamps. She obviously wants the world to know regardless of what might happen to her, PLEASE SHARE for her sake.

Clip 2: There are more "witness testimonials" coming right out of #Xinjiang aka #EastTurkestan. They don’t saying anything but it's written all over their faces, clearly sending a message to the outside world that all is not good.

‘Ablikim Yusuf’ a #Uyghur from Hotan prefecture of #Xinjiang aka #EastTurkestan. Currently he is being held by Qatar authorities at Doha airport and he is to be deported to #China where he’ll likely face a severe punishment.
Abulikemu Yusufu, who was deported from Bosnia to China, is now at Doha Hamas International Airport, waiting for the flight to China. His life will be in grave danger if he’s forcedly returned to China. Please help stop his repatriation!
We urge the United Nations, European Union, and other governments, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and other non-government organizations to take urgent action to save ‘Abulikemu YUSUFU’ and save him from deportation to #China.…

1/I’ve been slow to comment on this recent, amazing Planet Money episode on #Xinjiang, DNA, and ethics in global genetic research.… @hrw @ailsachang
2/Agree with @dtbyler about centrality of a #Uyghur voice, “Alim,” impressed w smart protection for him. Esp given his biodata gathered forcibly, detention in a “political education” camp, “release” but still flagged by surveillance technology even when supposedly “free.” @hrw
3/And “Alim’s” encounter w what was likely the IJOP.… @hrw @hrw_chinese

Since the New Zealand shooting we've done really well with calling out and fighting Islamaphobia.

Here's a reminder that if we're fighting Islamaphobia, we *really* need to be talking about China's imprisonment of over a million #Uyghur Muslims in #Xinjiang.
Small acts of racism, like violent posts on social media, harassment on public transport and such are bad.

But we're talking about over a million people kidnapped and oppressed, dozens of foreign nationals imprisoned, and millions more oppressed on a daily basis.
China deserves to be pressured on the national stage. We need to apply much more pressure on China than we are about the comparatively small fringe groups in the west.

This is a remarkable piece of well crafted Propaganda 👇🏼 “They are using snake to interrogate” ? 👀 I will break it down in following thread:
1) Aydin Anwar, the Uyghur American Activist in video wears hijab. There are very few Uyghur American women who wear hijab. This is a nice touch to highlight Muslim nature of Uyghurs and appeal to broader Muslim community. This is working as Arab Americans I follow tweeted video
2) “They are being sterilized, a method used in Genocide” Even China Human Rights Defender whose widely sited estimate of 1 million in detention based on 8 informants and HRW report didn’t mention this. But it makes a good story…
