I work for a multinational retailer (though not in its biggest market) and already raised this with the relevant local buyers when I saw this thread posted, I'm not sure what will happen but I'll raise it again next week.
Good on you, more people should be raising this when it's relevant to their workspace.

Just throwing an ask out there to jschreier for some potential kotaku coverage. It's crazy to have seen almost no coverage from tech sites. Not even Wired who has actually been doing semi-regular coverage of Uyghur muslim oppression in China.

Just want to share the views of Chinese in the mainland on Uighur's issue.

Hope the mods let me talk about this, not just banned me.
Just assume I am brainwashed by Chinese government regarding this issue.

In any right mind, almost nobody in the mainland support this, this issue simply does not exist.
Because the government intention is to give training to the minorities in order for them to find way of living.

Why the need to do such extreme "retraining camp" (as other called it concentration camp)?
This is due to these minorities at poverty condition, once exposed to extremist views, could be convinced to do terrorism attack.
In fact these chain of events are started with the Separation movement and then the terrorism attack at XinJiang.

Inside China, the government has managed to give skill to them, let them get the job, they get to keep on living "freely".

Now the reporting of the west media is totally different from China perspective.

The terrorism attack are not reported the same when it happened on other countries.
It is regarded as Conflict,

Re-education camp are reported as concentration camp.
Making them learn Chinese are reported as forcing them to forget their culture and ethnic cleansing.
More ridiculous were forcing them to eat pork and beer.

It get worst when we mention Organ Harvesting, All news regarding this are linked to Falun Gong.
A simple search on Falun Gong, Epoch Times would easily made them an non credible sources.
But reporting bad China is easily absorbed. even worst in reddit /worldnews

There is no reason for China Government to do all these things, other than keeping the region for themselves.
They need to keep this region, as even appearing as tough as they can, China is extremely fragile.
Allowing one ion to leave will cause others to do the same as they view the government as weak.
It bring no benefit in treating the minorities badly.
What is the point really? The could just bring out the tanks and roll over everyone to cause fear.

On this topic regarding Uighur are forced to these factory, in China, it is reported as China government has helped the minorities to gain a way of living in China by giving them skill to communicate with local.

The result, minorities get lift out of poverty, extremist views are limited, terrorism attack are gone(at least for now).

There are much larger issues such as working condition which causes suicide in many places.
There is no lack of labours in China to force minorities to work.
Some companies even outright reject Uighur for jobs.
Is it wrong for government to give job to these people? are they supposed to be left alone to faith?

How would other country deal with this issue if it happens in their country?
A region where the minorities has low income and ability, get threaten by Chinese from other region moving there stealing their jobs.
How would you change how China deal with this?
All the reporting are criticizing how they did this. Not how they should treat it.

No wonder Muslims are getting genocided in China, if many of its citizens are holding this kind of view.

I want to say so many terrible things to you right now, but I'll settle with fuck off, you POS. If this warrants me getting a warning or a ban, I don't care. Fuck. Off. You. Piece. Of. Shit.

That was not my view, that is how most people in China view.
If you have any message that i could spread to them to fix these, i would gladly do so.
Show them how to fix this problem.
All i see in western board are “fuck china” “fuck their economy” “fuck them for supporting the gov”
But we are looking at billion of people, that are being lifted out of poverty.
You want to them to crush their economy and go back to living in poverty?

Aside from most of your both posts being exactly parroting the words of Chinese authorities and the state down to "poverty alleviating initiatives" and JAQing off, I don't think you've read the leaked internal documents of how the internment camps are run and how oppressive they are in physical and social control. While you're banned, spend the time to educate yourself on the leaked 400 pages detailing internment/concentration camps:

Here's a testimony of a Uyghur woman Mihrigul Tursun to USA Congress (while pro-govt propaganda sources like CGTN try to say she's fake news):

Here's a few documentaries on how the labour programs work, how the Muslims are targeted, and the surveillance systems through undercover reporting:

And I can't believe places like that exist in 2020.

I don't think boycotting will help improve the situation, the issue is a lot bigger than that. And I'm not sure if there are many organizations out there willing to help Muslims. This is just tragic. :/

I'm currently writing up an article for this, our site is pretty small in the grand scheme of things but every little helps to spotlight it, really.

I have a question though - is Uighur the preferred spelling? I'm seeing Uyghur more often, but I don't wanna step out of line with it.
Thank you for helping to make awareness.

Other than you unfortunately all these people who are claiming they're game journalist can stand in the wall of shame in the history. Keeping an blind eye to this issue after a week, being silent after being notified shows they're just glorified PR for their own gain.
I'll put them into -avoid traffic to their site- list and remind them when the claim of journalism comes. No need to be easy on them. It's a bigger crime when you spare bigger help.

Thank you for the well thought out reply to that (no words to describe them) as a Muslim reading what they wrote sickened me even more on-top of the think of your fellow humans. Seen the post late last night and was so vexed by it couldn't even bring myself to reply, one of those i need to get off the internet things.
Lots of OTHERS also had input, and i know there is no need to pat you all on shoulder but seeing that makes us feel more comfortable here so appreciate it as some places online can be real shit show. One of the reasons i avoid so many forums, agree with the sentiment its 2020 wtf is the world doing.

I don't think we can avoid buying brands, the problem is too systemic. This is an atrocity but also reflects what happens with globalization, we need goods at a market price. All cellphones are made with child labour but they are also our methods of communication to organize against exploitation, the irony. In a sense, using cancel culture to fight this akin to finding a way for us to feel okay about exploitation when it crosses our moral line, not to actually fix anything.

Supporting reeducation camps and slavery to own the West. That's quite a flat mate you have there. What exactly has the CCP done that has deserved anyone not being against it? From the purges of Mao to Tienanmen Square to today it's been nothing but a horror show.

As a Muslim myself, reading this was very painful, but unfortunately not surprising. This is the opinion that many around the world have adopted, immediately equating extremist views with religion.

Engagement through trade is folly as it only gives them more levers, but we should never 'cut them off' and allow them to create a parallel international system, which what their development bank is by the way.

Trump's trade war is a mistake, but the underlying issues he is trying to address are not. He should have worked with the Europeans to engage China in that way.

I wouldn't even know how to begin to fix this. Can't boycott a lot of these because of the way they're so tightly integrated into our lives being functional. U.S. companies, at minimum, need to be forced to extract themselves from these supply chains somehow. It has to be a government mandated solution, along with EU countries. Most of our leaders really don't give a fuck, and most citizens don't either, if they're even aware.

In the meantime, boycott everything. 95% of the time you don't actually need to upgrade your shit

Just want to share the views of Chinese in the mainland on Uighur's issue.

Hope the mods let me talk about this, not just banned me.
Just assume I am brainwashed by Chinese government regarding this issue.

In any right mind, almost nobody in the mainland support this, this issue simply does not exist.
Because the government intention is to give training to the minorities in order for them to find way of living.

Why the need to do such extreme "retraining camp" (as other called it concentration camp)?
This is due to these minorities at poverty condition, once exposed to extremist views, could be convinced to do terrorism attack.
In fact these chain of events are started with the Separation movement and then the terrorism attack at XinJiang.

Inside China, the government has managed to give skill to them, let them get the job, they get to keep on living "freely".

Now the reporting of the west media is totally different from China perspective.

The terrorism attack are not reported the same when it happened on other countries.
It is regarded as Conflict,

Re-education camp are reported as concentration camp.
Making them learn Chinese are reported as forcing them to forget their culture and ethnic cleansing.
More ridiculous were forcing them to eat pork and beer.

It get worst when we mention Organ Harvesting, All news regarding this are linked to Falun Gong.
A simple search on Falun Gong, Epoch Times would easily made them an non credible sources.
But reporting bad China is easily absorbed. even worst in reddit /worldnews

There is no reason for China Government to do all these things, other than keeping the region for themselves.
They need to keep this region, as even appearing as tough as they can, China is extremely fragile.
Allowing one ion to leave will cause others to do the same as they view the government as weak.
It bring no benefit in treating the minorities badly.
What is the point really? The could just bring out the tanks and roll over everyone to cause fear.

On this topic regarding Uighur are forced to these factory, in China, it is reported as China government has helped the minorities to gain a way of living in China by giving them skill to communicate with local.

The result, minorities get lift out of poverty, extremist views are limited, terrorism attack are gone(at least for now).

There are much larger issues such as working condition which causes suicide in many places.
There is no lack of labours in China to force minorities to work.
Some companies even outright reject Uighur for jobs.
Is it wrong for government to give job to these people? are they supposed to be left alone to faith?

How would other country deal with this issue if it happens in their country?
A region where the minorities has low income and ability, get threaten by Chinese from other region moving there stealing their jobs.
How would you change how China deal with this?
All the reporting are criticizing how they did this. Not how they should treat it.
What a load of total, utter poppycock.
Some people have been put in these camps JUST for having a beard.

Please wake up.

If this is the cost of living in a tech focused society it is simply not worth it and we should take a step backwards. Go back to living simpler lives and stop upgrading.
This is the problem. We’ve entrenched ourselves to the point where we don’t have the capacity to let our lives be simpler than before. The sheer volume of societal technological gains in the past twenty years have been at the expense of others in our worker nations that produce said devices. We would need to break the current system and start over in order to change anything.

it’s not just China making devices that’s led to the problem but we’ve let the country buy into so much of the international market whether it’s through corporations or buying up international debt we are beholden to them.


It’s not just about devices that are manufactured there, China is literally the biggest lender in the world to the developing market so they’d be able to flex their muscle to remain the only viable choice for manufacturing.
