In 2018, Sayragul Sauytbay testified that she personally did not witness any violence in the #Xinjiang camps.

However today she curiously alleges, at length and with remarkable detail, how the conditions were *actually* more akin to the storyline of Saw 3 meets Hostel.
In 2018 Sauytbay claims there was no meat, everyone was starving.

In 2019, she amends her story, now alleging prisoners served pork on force feeding Fridays.

The penultimate paragraph of this fantastical piece also speaks to her credibility.

(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.…
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.

CLIP: I attended a talk at @UBC Vancouver by a Chinese official, Yu Jiantou of the @CDRF15, and asked him about detention camps in #Xinjiang. He defended the camps as “vocational training” and said China has different priorities when it comes to human rights. Story coming soon.
@UBC @CDRF15 For context, see this earlier story by colleague @Nuttallreports. The same institute that invited Hu Angang invited Yu yesterday. The UBC-affiliated moderator did not correct the record to clarify the camps are compulsory and have prison-like conditions.…
In above video, the moderator is UBC Institute of Asian Research fellow Evan Due. Due is a senior adviser to the Chinese government research foundation where Yu is Assistant Secretary General. UBC hasn’t answered questions on whether he was an appropriate choice for moderator.

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.

Looking at one internment camp in #Xinjiang...the “soccer fields” like the “basketball courts” are all a sham. How many total people are in these shots alone? Images from late 2017, 2018 and 2019.
From May 2017. The "grass" is...?
What kind of material?

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.

China mentions #Kashmir

#Turkey and #Malaysia mentions #Kashmir

#Bangladesh mentions the 1971 genocide

But PM Modi didn't utter a word on





#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...

Disappointed in the US #GreenParty🌻. Their counterparts in #Australia, #NewZealand, & #Germany recognize #China’s Communist Party as an enemy of #HumanRights & main contributor to #ClimateChange.

Then again, proponents of the #GreenNewDeal, like @TomSteyer, cash in on China.
… in case you don’t recall, #ClimateChange activist #TomSteyer — who criticizes America’s energy sector, but turns a blind eye to #China’s behemoth pollution (inc. in super-polluted #EastTurkistan/“#Xinjiang”) — used Chinese-favored tax havens for his $…
… more recently, it was discovered that billionaire #ClimateChange activist #TomSteyer cashed in on #China’s shady private equity market, tech startups, pharma co’s, & nursing homes.

Is he sincere in his activism, or padding his bottom line via #China?

Thread: #China planning 1,000km tunnel to divert Brahmaputra water from #Tibet to #Xinjiang…
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.

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.

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…
