You don't hear Muslim community complain about this situation, but instead you hear Westerners and Americans very concerned about the health of the Uyghurs. LOL

The West needs Uyghurs extremists to destabilize China and the region. It irks the US, Australia and UK, especially that China is closing that option through their de-radicalization program which the west is calling "brainwashing." We know how lucrative "terrorist" business has been for the western military industrial complex. As the Pandora Papers leaks revealed, western banks have been instrumental in channeling funds to terrorist groups with the knowledge of their governments.

Aren't the photos down here literally from a Chinese prison? I'm not sure China has even 1/10th of the police officers in Xinjiang to keep the 1 million ughyrs that have been reported interned in the conditions shown here.

God bless China Xinjiang 🇨🇳

The genocide is not an allegation, it is a fact

canthinkaboutone May 28, 2022 - 7:42 PM

I agree… let's start with Chile, Bachelet is Chilean and quite a few human rights have been violated while she's been head of human rights for the UN (2019/2021 300+ people lost their sight by being shot with tear gas by the police) of course she will put the blinkers on in regards to China which is disgraceful approach since her parents were tortured during the Pinochet era.

Ridiculous there's no genocide in China stop spreading propaganda and stop trying to ruin people's lives. The us is manipulative wonder why they don't send CNN fox news to broadcast live at these so called camps

why are people still interviewing adrian zenz when he was debunked many times before

Sreenath Surendran May 28, 2022 - 9:07 PM

Adrian zenz is a liar , people like him lies with guitar and drums around the world.

At least China has the courage and openness to allow the UN High Commissioner of Human Rights visit Xinjiang and speak to locals. The USA, however, does not have that courage and openness. Its administration during the Trump era refused to grant visa entries and threatened to sanctions investigators from the International Criminal Court when it wanted to investigate USA's war crimes committed in Afghanistan.

The difference in conduct speaks volume about the actual human rights situation in these 2 countries. Obviously one of the countries has been desperately trying to hide something and to prevent access by the relevant international organisation.

Have you heard of any conflict in Xinjiang in the past 10 years?
In this age everyone has a smartphone, there's nothing to hide
There are many bloggers on youtube who visit videos Xinjiang post video
instead of videos edited by pictures in the bbc dw cnn

M Kay May 28, 2022 - 9:30 PM

Have the skunk visit Crimea and Donbass Ukraine next

莫念x酱 May 28, 2022 - 9:34 PM

As a Chinese I can swear ,CCP Not persecution of Uyghurs
In 2008, the government only targeted East Turkic separatist forces but nothing like what the western news said
Those separatist forces have only a few hundred people, how can there be millions?

Hindus love cow piss May 28, 2022 - 11:38 PM

Al jazeera has come another fake news channel!😂😂🤣keep barking!

The difference between US and China when dealing with Islamic extremist is that US either creates them to fight their proxy wars or… if they get out of hand… bombs their villages and homes. China, on the other hand, detains them, and attempts to rehabilitate and train them in a vocational skill. In the meantime, National Endowment for Democracy is working with the US to discredit China. I have a feeling that the Biden Administration needs an excuse to go to war with China. In the New World Order, there can only be one dominate country, and in this type of model, China is a threat (economically) to the US.

The lie of the century. That's rich, coming from them.

Jae Dae May 29, 2022 - 6:32 AM

Chinas the one you can't trust. They've been lying cheating and stealing for years. Now they make a virus to get everybody sick, then try to sell a vaccine acting like it's the only one that works. You gotta be dumb to believe anything they say. Pakistan Iran and North Korea are the only ones. There's your sign

Paul Youppi May 29, 2022 - 7:15 AM

What's the point China 🇨🇳 hands out 40 billion dollars to South East Asia, USA 🇺🇸 it's 150 million of which 40% is coast guard duty (Navy) [ It's a real issue but it's not like West is going to do anything about it ] they can't help their own people most of time… Native American Trailer parks with the Government Cheese 🧀 usually a death plan in Canada 🇨🇦, Mexico 🇲🇽, and USA 🇺🇸,

Rasheeda Rukhsana Begum May 29, 2022 - 8:42 AM

PLZ SAVE HUMANITY PLEASE RELEASE POOR PEOPLE FROM CAMPS SO CALLED PRISON. AND ALSO RELEASE PEOPLE FROM CHINA'S PRISONS. UYGHUR CHILDREN ARE SEPERATED FROM FAMILIES THROWN INTO ORPHANAGES WHEN PARENTS ARE ALIVE. ORDER THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT TO SENT BACK THE CHILDREN TO THIEF PARENTS, RELEASE THE PARENTS FROM CAMPS & PRISONS. PUNISH CHINESE GOVERNMENT

Western media: (when you toe their line) you have great credibility 👍; (when you speak the truth) you have no credibility at all 🤣 🔴)

yesterday was irak wmd, now russia, next china, we know the game of devils

Tohurangi May 29, 2022 - 2:04 PM

Seems to be another lying diplomat (e.g. Russian) who is being paid for doing NOTHING towards human rights abuses & tthe LIE of the century is China denying Tiananmen Square killing of it' own people or the fact of having peaceful intentions so China threatening the US, Taiwan etc.or the Pacific Islands once they have a foothold in the sellout Solomon Island for their military / security forces to attack other countries like the lying Russians. Similar to them partnering with North Korea & Russia to oppress people in that part of the world imo.

dmsknb May 29, 2022 - 3:26 PM

She's either been bribed by China or she is just incompetent.

John Koh May 29, 2022 - 4:57 PM

Leo H May 29, 2022 - 9:06 PM

Here is another bullshit from US, they just don't want anyone to know there is no human rights violation in Xinjiang.

Proud Truth May 29, 2022 - 9:09 PM
