For those wondering why there are increasing conflicts between pro-nation state China and pro-HK folks, it is due to different understandings and beliefs of what the #HongKongProtests are about:

1. Belief in ethnic and cultural unity as a collective supersedes individualism.
Geopolitical reasons aside, this belief by mainland nationalists is also one of the key reasoning why they lay “claim” to Taiwan. Sorry, let alone how Taiwan is culturally and ethnically diverse, along with active reconciliation efforts toward aboriginal peoples on the island,
this type of identity politics to justify geopolitical aggression and construction and reinforcement of blind hegemonic nationalism is very dangerous.

We’ve already seen religious and ethnic minority cleansing, most notable with Tibet and now in #Xinjiang with the #Uyghurs.

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

Disturbing.

A pro-#China online stalker has posted the names of my family (w/ whom I have little/no contact) online & then accused me of supporting a terrorist group (!?) for defending the #HumanRights/#PoliticalRights of #EastTurkistan’s #Uyghurs & #HingKong’ers.

Very scary.
… I apologize. I misspelled the hashtag “#HongKong” because it’s so late.

This person is obviously trying to elicit someone to attack my family — again, with whom I have essentially no contact — in order to silence me.

Have you no shame, @ChnEmbassy_jp?

Truly scary.
… when I was a kid, my family was targeted by Maoist terrorists (Sendero Luminoso, the Communist Party of #Perú), so for me, the struggle against terrorism (esp. #China’s Maoists’ & #HKPoliceTerrorism) is PERSONAL.

Scary déjà vu that they’re again being targeted, now b/c of me.

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…

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

The #TIP (Turkistan Islamic Party) doesn’t enjoy the support of the majority (or even a large minority) of #Uyghurs (a moderate people). It’s a small, fringe, extremist group which appears to directed by one major gov’t near #Syria, to the detriment of #EastTurkistan’s people.
… gov’ts who are supporting the #TIP (Turkistan Islamic Party) are betraying the interests of #EastTurkistan’s people. #Uyghurs have no interests in #Syria & are being radicalized in an malicious, cynical plot to attack both #Assad & the #Kurds. State support for them MUST stop.
… this effort to radicalize #Uyghurs to attack #Assad & the #Kurds only plays into #China’s fabricated narrative, which paints all #Uighurs as being “terrorists,” when in reality these few thousand crazies represent less than 1% of #China-Occupied #EastTurkistan’s population.

Sure hope @UNESCO is going to raise hell about ISIS’ latest act of iconoclastic destruction and ethnic cleansing — by which I mean China and the Uyghurs.

— Some human lives are more “human” than others.
— Some universal cultural heritage is more “universal” than others.

Give a moment of thought for what that means.

#China #Uyghurs #NotreDame #AlAqsa #Paris #Jerusalem
On NPR right now, the French billionaire funding Notre Dame’s reconstruction:

“I was in China when I heard...I woke up, crying.”

“I am so glad this was an accident and not terrorists.”

New Horrors: #China Harvesting Muslim Organs in Concentration Camps - China is removing live organs from executed Uyghur Muslims & markets them as “halal” & distributes them to a network to wealthy Saudi clients & others 👎🇨🇳👎 @UyghurCongress @AidUyghur medium.com/@cjwerleman/ne…
This week, UK lawmakers warned citizens desperate for transplant operations that they could be unknowingly “playing a role in the profiteering of atrocities against inmates in the Communist government’s network if prisons and detention camps.”
The authors also observe how “another medical witness described being forced to administer blood tests of Uyghur political prisoners on behalf of a handful of ageing, high-ranking, Chinese Communist Party officials who needed tissue-matching organs.”
