Australian Uighur leaders infuriated at Chinese propaganda presentation to pressPosted by Ivan Vaquero / April 8, 2021
The Chinese government has warned companies from abroad not to get involved in politics––their way of saying not to meddle in their treatment of the Uighur people. This comes just as a Facebook revealed a Chinese-led covert operation using fake Facebook accounts and fake websites to hack into Uighur phones. There is now an incredible amount of evidence that there has been an ongoing and diversified oppressive operation undertake by the Chinese ethnic majority against the Uighur people.
The Chinese government has criticized western nations critical of their treatment of the Uighur people. Chinese officials argued that the atrocities committed against native American peoples, enslaved Africans, Aboriginal Australians, and Eastern European Jews make any criticism from the perpetrating nations hypocritical. Australia refused to take the bate, vowing to continue calling out Chinese crimes against humanity.
The Dutch parliament has become the first European government to label the treatment of Uighurs genocide. The move comes just days after the Chinese government has rejected the international outcry against their treatment of the Uighur people, which other countries are calling (or coming close to calling) genocide. China has invited the UN, but in a vague sort of way.
