Thread: #China planning 1,000km tunnel to divert Brahmaputra water from #Tibet to #Xinjiang livemint.com/Politics/2adFZ…
Chinese engineers are testing techniques that could be used to build a 1,000km long tunnel—the world’s longest—to divert water from the Brahmaputra river in Tibet close to Arunachal Pradesh to the parched Xinjiang region, a media report said on Monday.
The move, that is expected to “turn Xinjiang into California", has raised concerns among environmentalists about its likely impact on the Himalayan region, Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported.

There is a saying in Bengali which means the house owner starts taking precautions once the robbery is over. For last three weeks @RahulGandhi became a poster boy of #Pakistan by his immature acts on #Kashmir issue. The realization now dawns that he must change track. 1/n
It is not known what prompted #RahulGandhi 2 try visiting #Kashmir last week, knowing fully well that the #Modi government got moral/legal sanction from the Supreme Court 2 take all preventive measures 2 stop blood spill and, that Gandhi would be returned like other leaders. 2/n
One may see the shadow of #Wayanad in #RahulGandhi's desperation but, to me his acts only helped the politically irrelevant #Left to stay in news. Left has a history of opposing Congress in States while joining hands hands in d Centre. #Congress's gains were short term. 3/n

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.

#CloseTheCamps
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.

PLEASE SHARE, A MAN’S LIFE HANGS IN THE BALANCE.

‘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.

RARE color photos from #WW2 offer a chilling look at evil that should inform the way we see #China’s modern-day #ConcentrationCamps in #EastTurkistan (what Communists call “#Xinjiang”).

True evil isn’t some distant black & white memory; it’s alive today, in living color.
… I see only two key differences between what #Nazi Germany did to Jews, Catholics, Roma, LGBT people, disabled people, & so many others, and what Communist #China‘s doing to #Uyghurs, #Kazakhs, #Kyrgyz, #Uzbeks, #Tatars, #FalunGong, & so many others…
… (1) #Nazi Germany forced people to outwardly identify themselves w/ symbols (inc. the Yellow Star of David), whilst #China’s authorities seem to prefer secret digital records; & (2) the #Nazis killed quickly, whilst China’s authorities appear to be killing slowly… for now.

Not surprising that #China‘s lying about its demographic data. We can’t trust the #CCP’s numbers. Ex.: Communist authorities say #Uyghurs’ population numbers ~10M, yet #Uighurs routinely insist to me that #EastTurkistan’s (“#Xinjiang’s”) overall Turkic pop. is 2x to 3x that (!)…
… if that’s any truth to that, then the actual numbers of detained persons in #EastTurkistan could be even *higher* than estimated (as estimates that “1 out of every X number of people are detained” would be skewed if we‘re starting by underestimating the base population)…
… those types of estimates tend to come about by looking at the number of people “missing” from everyday places, like markets. The other types of estimates come from looking at the theoretical holding capacities of detention facilities, but these estimates are problematic, too…

(1/12) "Geben Sie uns Ihr Handy!" Mit diesem Satz begann vor Monaten unsere @SZ Recherche zur #OperationHonigbiene

Ein Informant hatte uns eine App zugespielt, die ihm an einer Landgrenze zu #China auf dem Handy installiert wurde.

#thread!
(2/12) Sieht eigentlich ganz harmlos aus. Die Beamten erklärten nicht, was die App kann oder warum sie installiert wird. Ohne Anfangsverdacht muss jeder Reisende seine Geräte aushändigen. Sie bekommen sie später kommentarlos zurück. Deshalb haben wir uns das genauer angeschaut.
(3/12) Wir ist untertrieben. Dabei waren von der @SZ @Remrow @cutterkom @femeb @n_richter @f_obermaier @Lea_Deuber Aber auch Experten von der @ruhrunibochum, dem @OpenTechFund und dem @citizenlab. Dazu die großartigen Kollegen @josephfcox @hilaryosborne @zhonggg @sveckert

(THREAD) There have been reports on Chinese social media these days about police spot-checking people’s phones in Beijing and Shanghai (Beijing PSB denied it). As I looked into it, I came across an app called MFsocket 1/8
I did more research about this app and found dozens of people complaining about finding it installed on their phones after visiting the police station (one went to the police station just to get ID card done, and another was just riding scooter and got stopped by police) 2/8
Found several cases in #Xinjiang, for example this one: club.huawei.com/thread-1551193…
The person who posted it on HUAWEI's forum is/was in #Xinjiang, as you can read his/her responses to people lower down the page. 3/8

Struck up a convo w/ what I suspect was a young IC recruit yesterday. They lived abroad in #China, spoke Chinese, called it “#Xinjiang” (not #EastTurkistan), insisted the @USNavy could never challenge the #PLA Navy in the SCS, that the Chinese have no interest in Democracy. 1/3
… & that #China’s rise poses no imminent threat to America. “So you don’t think the #CCP has a plan to supplant the US as the world’s dominant superpower?” “Not in my lifetime,” they insisted. “Really,” I asked, “not even by 2049?” They responding unblinkingly, “oh, no way!” 2/3
… if these are the kind of denialist, can’t-do-attitude types certain intel agencies are now scraping from the bottom of the Ivy League barrel, perhaps #China really will win. Disheartened to see bright young people buy in to orthodox thought that’s been consistently wrong. 3/3

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.

For those not familiar with Erik Prince, it's worth looking into his profile as his personal history and connections are significant 3/x vanityfair.com/news/2010/01/b…
