BREAKING: the first-ever leak of "Top Secret" remarks by a Chinese head of state shows how Beijing is behind nearly every aspect of the atrocities in Xinjiang: Internments / forced labor / birth control & reducing Uyghur population shares / big data policing / boardng schools/1

In 2018, 2019 and 2020, the CCHRC received between €250,000 and €300,000 per year from the Southwest University of Political Science and Law, a university closely associated with the Communist Party, according to documents acquired by Dutch NOS.

“We do not have a clear image of how often such influence operations occur within academia, but we can definitely say that this is a clear case of attempting to exert ‘soft-power’ by the Chinese Communist Party,” said Rob de Wijk, prof. of international relations and security.

@ReasonablyRagin was one of the peer reviewers of the analysis of the Papers, and as such had been given full access to the original files.

In complementing evidence on policy implementation with insights into the party-state’s decision-making processes, the Papers "reveal the centralised chain of command behind those policies."

Important piece by @reasonablyragin on the Xinjiang Papers. The papers complement our understanding of the region that is often based on policy-making by "linking observed policies to central commands."

China is often described as a black box. For this week's @thewirechina cover story, I profiled the researchers who are using inventive new methods — from government procurement documents, to satellite imagery, to patent filing data — to shine a light in.

"Nobody cares about what's happening to the Uyghurs, okay. I am telling you a very hard and ugly truth. Of all the things I care about, [the atrocity against the Uyghurs] is below my line." This is really hard to believe until you have seen it.

Owner of the @warriors 🏀 says he doesn’t care about the Uyghurs. The conversation goes downhill from there. @chamath … - questions whether a genocide is actually happening - says the CCP isn’t a dictatorship - says the US is no better than the CCP

While the IOC was willing to investigate forced labor issues with the 2014 games in Sochi, it is actively looking the other way with Beijing 2022. The IOC is refusing to meet with the Coalition to End Forced Uyghur Labor to hear their concerns.

One could say the same about the situation of the Uyghurs.

Will endless retweeting make people pay attention? Make them understand the severity and importance of what’s happening? Does public outrage, at home or abroad, make a difference for HK, or is HK now just a cautionary tale? I don’t know. But I also don’t know what else to do.
