More Uighur exiles describe forced abortions, torture

Posted by / June 4, 2021

Three Uighur exiles have described experience both forced abortions and torture in Xinjiang. They are set to testify at a people’s tribunal in London investigating accusations of genocide in China.

China is using a variety of dramatic, authoritarian measures to cut Uighur birthrates, including forcibly implanting IUDs, abortions, and sterilizations. A top State Department official accused China of turning Xinjiang into an “open-air prison” and slamming the religious persecution of the Uighur. China is urging nations not to attend a pro-Uighur event planned by the United States, Britain, and Germany.

New Zealand’s government has backed off labeling China’s treatment of the Uighur people genocide, instead discussing rights in more general terms.

The Lithuanian government, meanwhile, has been ramping up its condemnation of the Chinese treatment of the Uighur people, coming close to calling it genocidal. The Chinese government has called such talk a “farce.”

A Uighur woman imprisoned in a 40-square meter cell with 40 other women has detailed her experiences, including electroshocks and beatings. There are dozens of such accounts in detailed in a recent report by the Human Rights Watch and Stanford Law School.

A Uighur gynecologist living in exile in Turkey has described the horrors of China’s sterilization campaign. The doctor described up to 80 surgeries a day, designed to prevent Uighur women from procreating and thus serving as a form of genocide against the Uighur people.

Chinese websites  are also advertising batches of 50 to 100 Uighur laborers, part of China’s forced-labor program.

Meanwhile, Beijing has begun airing propaganda films of detained Uighurs pleading with their relatives overseas to return to Xinjiang and stop criticizing China. The people in the videos appear thing and ill, a clear sign of the inhumane treatment they are receiving. The Chinese state-run media 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 peopleThe Australian Uighur community is outraged following the Canberra Chinese embassy played five propaganda films about how great things are in Xinjiang.

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.

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.
