Pompeo: '1984' Coming To Life In China

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday likened China’s treatment of more than one million Uighur Muslims to George Orwell’s “1984” novel, saying the Communist Party was detaining and abusing them in internment camps.

Speaking at an American Association of Christian Counselors event in Nashville, Tennessee, Pompeo also said he wished the National Basketball Association (NBA) had acknowledged the situation in the Xinjiang region.

Photo exhibition on Uyghur genocide held outside UN office in Geneva

A photo exhibition titled "Stop Uyghur Genocide! Stop Uyghur Forced Labour" was organised at Broken Chair in front of UN during the 45th Human Rights Council Session in Geneva. The World Uyghur Congress (WUC) organised the three-day long photo protest to highlight the situation in Xinjiang province of China. Pictures of Uyghur victims were put to make the international community aware about the crisis. Dolkun Isa, president of the World Uyghur Congress said, "Today we are organizing a photo exhibition against forced labour and to stop the Uyghur genocide. Here, 45th Session of Human Rights Council is going on so we are using this opportunity to raise awareness about the Uyghur genocide and draw international attention." He added, "Today more than 3 million Uyghur Muslims are suffering in a 21st-century concentration camp by the Chinese government. The Chinese government is using Uyghur Muslims as forced labour so that's why we are calling the world to stop business with China. We are pleading the Chinese government to stop the Uyghur genocide. It is a shame in the 21st century and silence is a crime. So we ask the whole world and entire human being to stand with Uyghur, support us". Recently, the new revelations of the use of Uyghur forced labour and the forced sterilization on Uyghur women by the Chinese government has added a new dimension to the crisis: this now constitutes ''Genocide'' under the Article 2 of the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.

Massive protest held in Dhaka against China's repression of Uighur Muslims [Video]

Massive protest held in Dhaka against China's repression of Uighur Muslims

A massive protest was held outside Dhaka Press Club on Friday to condemn the Chinese brutality and suppression against Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang Autonomous region. Bangladesh Freedom Fighters organised the demo in memory of August 28 Uighur Repression Day saying that Muslims in many countries are unhappy with the inhuman treatment of Uighur Muslims by China's Communist regime. The Chinese government has reportedly detained more than a million Muslims in re-education camps. Most of the people who have been arbitrarily detained are Uighur, a predominantly Turkic-speaking ethnic group primarily from China's north-western region of Xinjiang. Human rights organizations, UN officials, and many foreign governments are urging China to stop the crackdown. But Chinese officials maintain that what they call vocational training centers do not infringe on Uighurs' human rights. They have refused to share information about the detention centers, and prevented journalists and foreign investigators from examining them. However, internal Chinese government documents leaked in late 2019 have provided important details on how officials launched and maintained the detention camps. Human rights activists allege that most people in the camps have never been charged with crimes and have no legal avenues to challenge their detentions. The detainees seem to have been targeted for a variety of reasons, according to media reports, including traveling to or contacting people from any of the twenty-six countries China considers sensitive, such as Turkey and Afghanistan; attending services at mosques; having more than three children; and sending texts containing Quranic verses. Often, their only crime is being Muslim, human rights groups say, adding that many Uighurs have been labeled as extremists simply for practicing their religion.
