Xinjiang, China is an information vacuum. With reports of a million Uyghurs in detention, plus censorship, surveillance and a blackout on outside communication, it’s hard to know what’s happening. So Uyghurs abroad turned to an unlikely resource: TikTok…
If you think of Tiktok, ByteDance’s phenomenally successful Chinese-owned video-sharing app, you’ll probably think of videos like this.

Snappy. ✅ Short. ✅ Cut to pop music. ✅

And in Xinjiang, most of the videos are no different.

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.
