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…
… because it’s possible that #China’s #EastTurkistan (“#Xinjiang”) detention facilities could be filled *beyond* the capacities they’re designed for. The third type of estimates come by looking at the purchase of *supplies* for detention facilities, but these estimates are…
… also problematic, because we know from survivor reports that detainees are subjected to near-starvation diets, receive only one bar of soap *per month,* etc. Moreover, it isn’t clear how many #Uyghurs are suffering “Residential Surveillance at a Designated Location” (#RSDL)…
… nor how many are imprisoned at “traditional” prisons. In total, it’s my belief that our best estimates of #China’s #HumanRights atrocities in Occupied #EastTurkistan (“#Xinjiang”) may sadly be *underestimates.* We need the #FreeWorld’s…
… best demographers, statisticians, intelligence agencies, etc., to turn their full attention to this issue… before it’s too late. //END
