This week 23 countries – including New Zealand – condemned China at the United Nations over its horrifying treatment of the Uyghur ethnic minority within its own borders.
The Uyghurs are a Muslim minority group native to Xinjiang, the supposedly autonomous region situated in China’s northwest.
China has been systematically targeting them, incarcerating Uyghurs en masse and attempting to stamp out their culture.
It’s built a series of complexes in Xinjiang, which it describes as perfectly innocent “vocational training centres”. In truth, they are modern day gulags where torture and other human rights abuses are rife.
As many as two million Uyghurs have been imprisoned in them.
