13 Facts about Xinjiang and Uyghurs Image
1. Xinjiang has been an inseparable part of China since the Western Han Dynasty (202 BC – 9 AD). In ancient times, Xinjiang was called "西域", The Western Territories. Before, all ethnic groups in Xinjiang were brutally ruled by the Huns until Han Dynasty defeated them. Image
2. The so-called "East Turkistan" did not exist in history, and this term did not even appear until 1930s. It was introduced into Xinjiang with "Pan-Turkism" and "Pan-Islamism" in the early 20th century, and It became a political tool used by western imperialists to divide China. Image
3.Plz do not classify Uyghurs as Turks!Genetically, Uyghurs not only have nothing to do with Turks, but there’re even deadly feuds between Uyghurs and Turks in history! Uyghur’s ancestor were "回鹘人", in 7th century AD, the Turkic Khaganate invaded and killed countless "回鹘人". Image
4. Eastern Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM) is a terrorist organization recognized by the UN in 2002. Yet, in other to hype Uyghur topic and demonize China, the US govt removed ETIM from its terror list in 2020. Image
5. Xinjiang spans over 1.66 million square kilometres, which is about the size of seven UK or three France. There’re 47 ethnic groups currently in Xinjiang, among them, Uyghurs, Kazakhs and Hui are the three largest ethnic minorities. Image
6. The average life expectancy in Xinjiang in 2019 was 74.7 years, and the Uyghur population also increased from 3.6m in 1953 to 11.62m in 2020. The so-called "genocide" is the most shameless accusation in human history and the most despicable lie of the imperialists! Image
7. The so-called "forced labor" is absolutely nonsense! The northern part of Xinjiang is an important cotton planting base, and its mechanized picking rate has reached 90%. More ironically, the cotton pickers used in Xinjiang were imported from the American brand John Deere. Image
8. The so-called "forced sterilization" is another joke. When China began to implement the "one-child policy" in 1982, the target of this policy has always been Han Chinese, not ethnic minorities including Uyghurs. Image
9. Xinjiang began to implement the first-stage "bilingual education policy" from 1950 to 1977, and then supplemented and deepened the policy from 1977 to 1990. Therefore, all Uyghur students can speak two languages, Uyghur and Mandarin. Image
10. All ethnic groups in Xinjiang enjoy freedom of religion! Xinjiang currently has around 25,000 mosques, with an average of one mosque for every 530 Muslims, which twice as many as Turkey. Image
11. There’re no "re-education camps" nor "concentration camps"! Extremism have brought lots of pain to Xinjiang, so the Vocational Education and Training Centers assists those who have been poisoned by extremism learn Mandarin, learn skills and help them reintegrate into society. Image
12.The "Gaokao", known as China's university entrance exam. The Uyghur and other minorities candidates enjoy extra 15 scores, which something that Han students don’t have! Xinjiang ppl enjoy 15 years of free compulsory education, meanwhile the rest of China only enjoy 9 years. Image
13. Xinjiang has high-speed rail! This is what the world’s "most powerful" US does not have! 😂
Xinjiang's infrastructure is better than yours, and Xinjiang ppl live better than yours! Your infrastructure is just a piece of shit, fix your mess first! Image

⭕️Debunking the misinformation over the incident of Chinese consulate in Manchester stormed by a group of HK separatists. Let's break it down, frame by frame, I've highlighted every crucial detail.🧵
First of all, this protest was not APPROVED by the police, hence these HK rioters were actually violating the law of the UK, they should be charged for unlawful assembly.
Secondly, these rioters not only placed many "HK independence" flags in front of the Chinese consulate but also used very insulting words to attack a certain person, that's a offense according to Public Order Act 1986.

For the farce of Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, Chinese military rarely used the terms "中国军队不会坐视不管", it literally means "The Chinese military will not sit on their hands".

"不会坐视不管" actually is quite serious warning which only used twice in history. Small 🧵
First time it happened on Oct 3rd, 1950 during. Formal Chinese PM Zhou Enlai urgently met with the Indian ambassador to China and asked the Indian side to deliver China's strong warning to the US, "If the US army crosses the 38th parallel, the Chinese army will not 坐视不管!".
In 1964, Formal Chinese PM Zhou Enlai warned the US again via the President of Pakistan, "The US army can't across the 17th parallel, any aggression against the Democratic Republic of Vietnam will be regarded as the aggression against China, Chinese military will not 坐视不管!".

This is my analysis of the major issues that are currently emerging in the US and the future trend of China-US relations. If the US does not actively seek to improve its relations with China and stops suppressing China, the results will be tragic.(1/n)
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the US has only one way to deal with the economic crisis, and that is to print money. Countless US dollars flowed into the market, therefore the Fed’s assets and liabilities expanded by more than 50% within a year.(2/n)
The US has printed about 10 trillion US dollars, but why the huge amount of US dollars did not cause inflation? The main reason is that the supply of goods exceeds demand. In the past, as the world’s No.1 country in commodity production,(3/n)

Everyone knows this is the national flag of the people’s republic of China. But perhaps a lot of people don’t know what the meaning behind this flag, so here’s the explanation. Actually, this flag contains many theories of socialism.(1/6)
This flag is a combination of one big star, four small stars and a red background. Let’s start with the red background, the red background represents "revolution", which means that this flag was exchanged for the bloodshed and sacrifices of countless people.(2/6)
Secondly, the first and second small star represents "working class" and "peasantry" respectively, which means the people’s republic of China is a "socialist country led by the working class and based on the alliance of workers and peasants".(3/6)

This tweet I am gonna compare the GDP of China and the US to prove why China has never regarded surpassing the US as its goal and how is the US economy being exaggerated? (1)
In 2020, the GDP of the US and China is $20.6 trillion and $15.6 trillion respectively, so the gap is about $5 trillion. But the problem is that at present, there is no unified regulation on the statistical method of GDP worldwide. There are many statistical methods, among (2)
which the US adopts the "Expenditure method", that is, the total expenditure of the whole society to buy the final product, including both personal consumption, personal domestic investment, government expenditure and net exports. (3)
