Forced sterilisations and life in China's Uighur Muslim internment camps    2020

 

 

 

 

Forced sterilisations and life in China's Uighur Muslim internment camps        Video        G        8 September 2020

 

Qelbinur Sidik,

a former teacher coerced to work in China’s internment camps,

speaks about her forced sterilisation at the age of 50,

under a government campaign to suppress

birth rates of women from Muslim minorities.

 

Sidik said the crackdown swept up

not just women likely to fall pregnant,

but those well beyond normal childbearing ages.

 

Messages she got from local authorities said women aged 19 to 59

were expected to have intrauterine devices (IUDs) fitted

or undergo sterilisation.

Why more than a million Uighurs are being held in camps in China    G    24 July 2020

 

 

 

 

Why more than a million Uighurs are being held in camps in China        Video        Guardian News        24 July 2020

 

In Xinjiang province, China,

more than a million Uighurs and other Muslim minorities

are being held in "re-education" camps

which the Chinese government claims

are benign vocational centres teaching useful career skills.

 

But former camp detainees have described them

as de facto prisons implementing mass brainwashing

and obedience to the Communist party.

 

As more evidence emerges of torture,

forced sterilisation of women

and other methods of population reduction,

should the situation in Xinjiang be termed a genocide?

China is relocating Uighurs

and other Muslim minorities to urban areas

as part of a contentious labor program.

 

The Times obtained rare footage taken inside one.

China: Why They Must Free Our Parents From Concentration Camps    NYT    19 August 2019

 

 

 

 

China: Why They Must Free Our Parents From Concentration Camps        Video        NYT Opinion        19 August 2019

 

In the video Op-Ed above,

three Chinese citizens whose parents disappeared

demand their release from China’s “re-education camps.”

 

The government is estimated

to have detained over one million people.

 

The goal:

to force China’s Uighur ethnic minority

to assimilate.

 

China’s decades-long campaign

against the Uighur minority has surged in recent years

through the construction of hundreds of detention camps.

 

Even outside of detention centers,

millions of Uighurs in China’s Xinjiang region

live in a virtual prison.

 

The surveillance state

deploys sophisticated technology,

including facial recognition tracking,

compulsory apps that monitor mobile phones,

and even DNA collection.

 

China has justified its actions

as a fight against religious extremism

within the predominantly Muslim ethnic minority.

 

The state has also defended the camps

as “boarding schools” for job retraining.

Yet community leaders,

including secular citizens and academics,

have been targeted for detention.

 

The international community

has widely condemned China’s actions.

 

The United States Congress

is considering legislation to do so.

 

And, in late July,

China claimed to have released most detainees

— yet experts and on-the-ground reporting

suggest that the detention camps persist,

and are even expanding.

If It Were My Home

 

The headlines tell a lot

about the crisis in Yemen:

internal strife, evacuations

of international aid workers,

Saudi Arabian airstrikes.

 

But you may have

one very basic question

that you can't easily find

an answer for:

How big is Yemen, anyway?

 

You can look at maps

and check out Wikipedia

but wouldn't it be great

to just to slap an outline of Yemen

on top of a map of the United States

to get a sense of its size?

 

IfItWereMyHome.com

lets you do just that.
