Communist China’s Genocide of the Uyghurs, and Our Voice Referendum By James Reed

What does communist China get up to in its down time, when not preparing to invade Taiwan, and engage in world conquest? Well, there is no down time at all; it is at it 24/7. Still, Muslim Uyghurs and members of other ethnic and religious minority groups in Xinjiang, have been subjected to genocide according to the US State Department 2022 human rights report. This is a bit odd, because US is a major violator of human rights, with the Biden regime violating the human rights of the J6 protesters. Still, the State Department is not the only entity which has said this, and Uyghur groups in the West have had protests, observed by the many communist spies here about the same issue.


As we have said in earlier articles, the claim made by the yes campaign in the Voice referendum, that the no vote would tarnish our image in the sacred international community does not hold water, as look at those who comprise it; they hardly have any high moral ground.

“The U.S. State Department released its 2022 human rights report for China on Monday, enraging the Chinese Communist government by finding that “genocide and crimes against humanity occurred during the year against predominantly Muslim Uyghurs and members of other ethnic and religious minority groups in Xinjiang.”

The report said ongoing crimes perpetrated against the Uyghurs included arbitrary imprisonment, forced sterilization, coerced abortions, rape, torture, and “draconian restrictions on freedom of religion or belief, freedom of expression, and freedom of movement.”

The State Department heard “credible reports” of extrajudicial imprisonment, political re-education, repression across national borders, pervasive surveillance, family members punished for the alleged offenses of individuals, and forced labor – including that of children.

According to the report, China keeps these crimes against humanity under wraps by tightly controlling the Internet and placing “serious restrictions on free expression and media, including physical attacks on and criminal prosecution of journalists, lawyers, writers, bloggers, dissidents, petitioners, and others.” 

As for China’s occasional claims to investigate reported abuses, the State Department found the investigations severely lacking, noting that in many cases there was no subsequent announcement of “results or findings of police malfeasance or disciplinary action.”

The report included several citations of Uyghurs who said family members died in China’s brutal re-education camps, or died shortly after their release due to the abuse they suffered:

In May, Radio Free Asia (RFA) reported that Yaqup Hesen died on April 20, days after authorities released him from a prison in Ghulja. An anonymous source said that “there are many” Uyghurs who died after being released from the nearby prisons and camps.

In March RFA reported Zeynebhan Memtimin died in prison in 2020 from unknown causes while serving a 10-year sentence for avoiding a forced abortion, and that Abdureshid Obul also died in prison in 2020, where he had been held after helping his wife escape from authorities to avoid undergoing a forced abortion.

On July 30, human rights nongovernmental organization (NGO) Rights Protection Network (RPN) reported that Lin Tianming was killed on June 28 in Fuzhou, Fujian Province, after submitting a petition at the Fujian People’s Government Petition Office to contest the forced demolition of his home. According to RPN, security personnel forced him into a van and later pushed him out of the moving vehicle, causing his death.

The State Department cited many more cases of whistleblowers and “petitioners” mysteriously disappearing after reporting cases of abuse to Xinjiang officials or international human rights groups. Some of the people “disappeared” by China had children, and some of them “disappeared” as well.

The report provided many documented examples of abuse perpetrated against captive Uyghurs, ranging from poor nutrition and medical care to sensory deprivation, brutal forced labor, deliberate exposure to toxic substances, sexual abuse, and outright torture – including waterboarding and the infamous “tiger chairs” China is so fond of strapping Uyghurs into. 

As with many authoritarian regimes, the Chinese government often proclaims dissidents are suffering from mental disorders and sentences them to involuntary “psychiatric care” that looks suspiciously like torture and brainwashing. China also has a special detention system called liuzhi that operates beyond the minimal constraints and oversight placed on its ghastly prisons, providing a handy disposal system for Uyghurs accused of “corruption.””’
