China releases musical set in Xinjiang to counter claims of Uighur genocide

Posted by / April 3, 2021

The Chinese state-run media has released a La La Land-esque musical set in Xinjiang. The film portrays an idyllic world, one in which there is, you know, no genocide against the Uighur people.

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.

Last week, Amnesty International has condemned the Chinese government’s policy of separating Uighur family in brutal detainment camps in Xinjiang.

According to a legal analysis by a United States-based thinktank, China is breaching every act of the UN genocide convention, the most thorough legal analysis yet.

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.

A leaked report has revealed that the Chinese government is pressuring Uighur people to take jobs far from home in order to separate families and dilute the culture.

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.
