(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.

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?

#DoğuTürkistan #SaveUyghur #Xinjiang #EastTurkistan #Uyghur
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.

China mentions #Kashmir

#Turkey and #Malaysia mentions #Kashmir

#Bangladesh mentions the 1971 genocide

But PM Modi didn't utter a word on

#Tibet

#HongKong

#Xinjiang

#ZakirNaik

#Kurdistan or

declare to recognize #ArmenianGenocide

#India's idealism is frustrating
How can India argue for its place at #UNSC when we remain silent on major issues?

इतने ही तटस्थ हो नाव लेकर गंगा में काहे जाते हो

बैठो घाट पर और चिलम पियो

Yes, Kasmir is an issue

Make it an issue

Talk about #HinduGenocide in Pakistan

Talk about #Balochsitan #OrdinanceXX
PM Modi is the leader of India

His words matter

His anger will be discussed

His warning will be heeded to

Scrapping #Article370 is huge step in India but in global geopolitics, it is just a much-delayed step

Drop the hesitation...

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
