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.

@UNHumanRights @ohchr #Uighur There were no Muslim majorly countries amongst the signatories.

Instead, some 37 countries then wrote to offer their support to China, including Russia, Saudi, Nigeria & Syria. Worse, they praised China’s “remarkable achievements” on human rights.
@UNHumanRights @ohchr Also @hrw have produced an excellent report on how #AI is being used to repress the Uighur people: hrw.org/report/2019/05…

We at @BarHumanRights are working on this crisis too.

Please support this work widely & watch the film tonight. Inside China’s Digital Gulag. ITV 2245.
