Marsha Blackburn Joins Charlie to Discuss Her Efforts Against China

"With us now is the great senator from the wonderful state of Tennessee, senator Marsha Blackburn, senator. Welcome back to the program. Good to be with you. Thank you so much. Thank you. I want to talk to you about China in particular you have been leading on this issue for quite some time now, where it seems as if the current regime the Biden administration is putting our country last in China first. There's so much news happening with China almost in real time. Give our listeners an update. You are so accurate when you say there is news happening in real time. And that's what makes it so difficult to keep up with in Charlie. I think it's also why people are saying, well, really, all of this can't possibly be going on, but it is. And we know of the problems around COVID, the denial that was there, how they cornered the market on PPE for over 50 days while they tried to keep quiet that they had a pandemic. We know what they have done with producing fentanyl and working with the Mexican cartels and pushing it over the border and into the cartel hubs that are actually on U.S. soil and that killed over 71,000 Americans last year. In addition to thousands that have become addicted to these synthetic opioids, we know what China is doing to the Uyghurs and how they're using them as slave labor and how American companies are continuing to manufacture and Xinjiang province using this slave labor.

2022 Winter Olympics Receiving Low Ratings

"Chaired by the disaster that is the TV ratings of the genocide games. It appears to me that Americans are voting with their eyes and refusing to watch a game stayed at a stage by a genocidal regime seeking a propaganda victory. Do you agree with my assessment? Yeah, I really think that that is at least part of it. I mean, it has to be some explanation because the ratings are much lower and I think it's probably discussed that everybody feels about China in general. I don't know that it's focused on Xinjiang province and the agars, but just generally the way that Beijing is throwing its weight around in the region in the world. Well, I

Gordon Chang Discusses China War Games With US Targets in Secret Desert Site

"With us now is the foremost expert on China. He's terrific. He is the author of the great U.S. China tech war. And it is Gordon Chang and Gordon are you with us now? I am Charlie and thank you so much. You bet you do a wonderful job and talk about our enemy, China, and you have been on the cutting edge of this for quite some time. So let's talk about this breaking news here. China war games with the United States targets in secret desert site. What is going on with the Chinese Communist Party militarily right now? It seems like they're ramping up and I'm not really sure what we're doing domestically militarily. That's a separate issue. So give us the insight, give us the breaking news of what's happening from the Chinese Communist Party militarily. The breaking news is that satellite imagery has seen an aircraft carrier and a destroyer a replica in China's Xinjiang in the northwest part of the country, used for target practice. This has occurred before where China has built replica replicas of U.S. Navy ships. And so to a certain extent, this is ground log day, but the American people are starting to pay attention and that is what is the news. And the broader context, Charlie, is that China's involved in the perhaps the world's fastest military buildup certainly the fastest since the Third Reich, and we know from history that when militant regimes build up their militaries like this, they always use them in acts of aggression. That's definitely true. Do you anticipate China making a move towards Taiwan in the coming months, it sure seems that that's what some of the rumblings and intelligence is showing. It could be coming months. It could be after the Olympics, which start in February of next year, or it could be India could be Japan could be any other country that borders China because we know that China believes that it should be much larger than it is today. And in fact, Chinese leader Xi Jinping has been hinting that he should be ruling the world. Chinese officials since 2018 have been saying that the moon and Mars should be considered sovereign Chinese territory. This is the most ambitious human history.

"Everything. We don't know what it's going to change but it's just it's it's a new chapter in the history of technology and its interactions with humanity. And so what happened is that china started arms race You can say an arms race in wanted to catch up with companies like google that had been developing a that had been developing all these things. The reason china was freaked out because first of all of this was china's national game and its own national world champion loss on but also realized just how far the us was in developing these technologies. So that's when companies like since that may be while away all these firms were just just a washing catch. They got so much state funding so which vc funding and it was at that moment that they got closer to their ultimate dream which would be some kind of ipo on stock market somewhere. That's actually a lot harder now because both the us and china have crapped out on. You know these big ideas happening that make their founders rich bites it brought these companies closer to this dream of establishing could say a global software network of major surveillance that across countries across jurisdictions can identify criminals anywhere. You can go through. A database can find what their past crimes are where they're from and can just learn anything about them based on their their face being found on a camera somewhere so we talked a lot of lot of broad terms in history of xinjiang. But i wanna move now to the personal cost. In the human cost of the policies that are being executed in xinjiang. You decided to tell the story of surveillance by following a few different people in the book. I'm just curious. Why did you make that choice. So a couple of reasons. I think that First of all there was so much coming out. There was so much new research coming out as i was setting out to write this book but there wasn't really a clear narrative about how john gots at this state that it's in now in anyone could open a news article or a research report and figure out what was happening but it wasn't clear like why is this happening now and you know what are the steps that brought us here. Step one two. Three four and five in sequential order. So i wanted to find characters whose life stories could tied together a lot of the investigative work that was already being done and i wanted to find in particular leaguers and kazakhs and other people from this region who had lived through the entire saga from start to finish and by star. I don't just mean like in recent years what's been happening there but start to finish as in you know. How did we get here in the big historical picture from say the danamon square massacre or the deng xiaoping reforms. You know of the previous thirty years for the nineties and two thousands like how do we get from that stage. When china is emerging as global power and you know people all over the world including president bill clinton at the time had declared that china you know might become a democracy that the markets were good way to open up people to this possibility of liberal democratic governance. At how do we get from that. Hickel of china related idealism to where we stand now which is that we in the us and the us government oversee overwhelmingly see china as a major global and national security threats and also threat to the rule of law and democracy around the world. One of the interesting things about following the characters. I found so mesa is the protagonist and i think she had a just a beautiful but also a dark story in what she had been through She really showed me through her own tales of what it was like to live through this whole era. Just how misplaced idealism can do a lot of damage to people on the ground who are living and experiencing it. I did not realize before. I met her. Just how optimistic people had been before the fall. We've seen now and listening to her story. As she had been through a concentration camp she got out. I was just You know it's it's hard to put in words but it was just. It was so overpowering an overwhelming just listening to how how so much of what she had been through could have been avoided if people realize what was going on xinjiang earlier. If they did not follow the you know the chinese narratives on have politics should unfold. So that's really the role in that. That's that's what i was trying to. And also just as a general rule. I tend to believe that good writing and good narrative. Storytelling anchors the story in a character or a handful of characters. I think that it's easy in a topic like this to overwhelm readers with lots of facts that have been dug up. You know historical and current events of facts but without getting at the context of what it's like to actually live through an experience. What was happening. So i wanna to talk about mason for a second because i think it really is. You said illustrates how pervasive the campaign is. It's going on against the warriors may some with someone who had totally bought into the system and wanted to even work for the government. Wanted to become a diplomat as we're gonna if you could just talk about her hopes and dreams without giving away too much short. So mason was a brilliant young woman from the millennial generation she. When i met her she was in her late twenties. She had been living in on camera and she told me her story about how she was. She was born in the nineteen eighties in this period. When she had swallowed the.

"The goal is to use to engage him population family control so it will raise you know the the economic standing of the region which was traditionally a very poor. But the reality is that You know many international scholars think that this is an attempt to simply exterminate in ethnic group in a religious group to to ensure that you know whatever next generation does exist. will simply be so small that it is assimilated into the rest of the chinese nation in. It doesn't have its own separate identity. So let's rewind a bit was wondering if you can tell us about the impact of nine eleven on china and specifically its impact on the community. Yes Nine eleven was really the turning point just to give a little historical background. The region of xinjiang has always been a somewhat restive region in in the history of the chinese communist party. it was always a bit far off frontier. The the terms john even translates into new dominion or new frontier of in. That shows you how the chinese state seasons but it wasn't really until nine eleven that these these chinese led campaigns against the region started picking up and that's because of the the rhetoric of the global war on terror. You know the us had deployed you know. This is very relevant. Now that we're taught there. There's a whole afghanistan situation going on the. Us government ahead deployed this language of terrorism accusing. You know large swath of of certain populations of being terrorists and had to put a number of people including sneakers from china in guantanamo bay. Starting in two thousand two. It turned out that pretty much all of these Wiegert were simply of either innocent of the charges or were being accused of terrorist sympathies. That they didn't really have. I mean maybe they got weapons training or they. They certainly had a grudge. And they wanted to. Wage and against china but they were certainly not global jihadists who were well aligned with al qaeda or other taliban or other terrorists actors by china's seized on this the fact that the us has put these twenty two or men found in afghanistan pakistan in guantanamo house. Them without charge allowed the chinese government to comment and say he see look. We've been saying this all along the leaguer. People are terrorist. There's a major terrorist problem in western china. We need to take care of it. And this gave china in the eyes of much of the international community a license to launch an all out war on terror style campaign against the week or people of the west of and you know that would include police roundups and beatings torture. I interviewed a number of leaguers who were taken away to like detention centers and tortured and beat up during these years of a lot of these resentments boiled over in two thousand nine. After the beijing of the There were massive protests in the regional capital of europe chea- which caused the chinese state in response to step up. Its retaliate even more. And so we see this pattern happening where the chinese state simply does not want to show restraint at wanted to create a total security state in john that would wipe out any dissidents in to the actual relatively small terrorist threat in the region and so every time there was some kind of legal protests. Or you know. There were a few terrorist attacks to every time there was a liter of pushback by extremist elements in this population. The chinese state we keep responding with more and more heavy handed measures against the entire population rather than isolating the extremists. Who were who were among this population of it was finally with the development of these new and novel technologies started in the early two thousands early. Two thousand ten's around two thousand twelve and two thousand thirteen. There were global developments in a i. Big data neuropathy neural networks of these are some of the major technologies that increasingly power the global economy and technology in places as far off as silicon valley beijing to russia turkey. I mean these are very integral technologies the way we live now and the chinese state saw these early on under under the president xi jinping and decided that they could use these technologies to do things like triumph predicts the some big data on the population. Who would likely to commit a terrorist acts or an atrocity or a crime in the future and this is what ultimately led to the establishment of the current situation into john of starting in two thousand sixteen and then accelerating since then. This is the total surveillance to sobia in which everyone is being watched constantly. Anyone can be taken away at any time for pretty much. Any reason for what we would call pre crime or predictive policing the this is straight out of sci-fi this minority report the movie with tom. Cruise the government. They are actually sweeps in. And we'll take away people to concentration camps because the ai systems have declared that they will commit a crime in the future for no clear reason at all. So i wanna. I wanna jump in japan here before we get any further in the technology and just go back to when she jingping takes power twenty thirteen in. Let's talk about the situation in xinjiang in two thousand thirteen in two thousand fourteen when he comes into power. Why did the chinese government's policy change so sharply then so president. Xi jinping was a national asset heart. He had like many of his generation. He had suffered through the cultural revolution. Which was the decade of of the communist. Kinda read mayhem in the nineteen sixties nineteen seventies. Unlike many from this generation he formed a world view that china since this period had been growing enormously was an enormous economic success story You know starting in the nineteen eighties to the presence. But it had been running into the problem. That many growing empires have had throughout history. And that's the The the decadence that comes with he had this feeling that the chinese people had had lost their ideological core that they that they were drifting away from the communists of virtues of the past under. I don't mean literally. these are good virtues. But you know hundred chairman now. There was a certain nostalgia. For what had existed before the sense of national unity and pride that was giving away to corruption and crime and selfishness and so chairman. She really set out on a mission. For for many years it's still going on. But to to rejuvenate the chinese nation to rejuvenate the chinese communist party to bring it back to the ideological core and that also included a massive projects of which. I'm sure everyone has heard of. It's the belt in road. Project onto really expand chinese economic and infrastructure base tower through central asia to the middle east to parts of east europe and even southern europe. I mean outside. Italy at some points and also to expanded seapower through the south china sea setting up new trading networks new in places like indonesia. Thailand sri lanka downs has sub saharan africa. Chinese money had had begun sweeping the world. But what happened. Is that german. Xi jinping realized that he had a problem in this particular region of xinjiang this was the gateway and the terminus for a lot of the planned infrastructure projects. The roads. you know the way that chinese power would be projected out into the world through countries like kazakhstan and india pakistan. Which aren't very strategically. Important to china xinjiang was was witnessed to a number of terrorist attacks in two thousand thirteen and fourteen other was one attempted airplane hijacking. There was allegedly a weaker attack in coming at a train station which is not an jong. But according to the chinese government was perpetrated. By meagher's there was also a bombing car bomb that went into tiananmen square. At one point this was in two thousand thirteen of and just to give a comparison that would be like car bombs going off in in times square piccadilly circus somewhere really important and this really struck at the heart of the chinese state. Xi jinping realized that if china is going to ascend to it's supposed past glory than it's going to have to tame the region of xinjiang. It's going to have to team this region. Turn lesson to a frontier that borders afghanistan and pakistan and bring it back towards the realm of the chinese center which means that its citizens must be taught to be good good han chinese communist good people who follow the the party. They're loyal to the states and they aren't going to be harboring terrorists thoughts. So one person that you mentioned the bookies chen chang will is a member of the chinese communist party in chinese government who had previously been a part of the tibet autonomous region or the head of the tibet autonomous region. I was wondering if you could talk about what. His effects were on xinjiang and wise specifically. They chose him to legion john yet. So changle was a longtime party member. He had risen through the ranks and had eventually been assigned to tibet. So to bet as. I'm sure many people know is is one of those regions of china. That as you also been it was invaded under the chinese communist party and it's been subjugated to colonial style assimilation and repression. So tibet really is. I think of all the regions in china that have suffered tibet was really the first to become the global poster child just simply one of the first in general to be subject to really just ham fisted hard handed efforts by the chinese communist party to turn this region into something it was not and so attention arrived and he had spent the.

"The future we had a wide ranging discussion around the chinese government's use of surveillance technology to suppress sweeter population. The history of xinjiang since nine eleven the development of china's tech industry and a lot of other issues. It's the law fair podcast. August twenty fourth china's perfect police state in john. Jeffrey thank you so much for joining me. My first question is simply. Why did you decide to write this book. So bryce i had been based in asia in the middle east for twelve years. And i have been covering technology business looking at some of the big picture. A tech developments around the world and artificial intelligence and voice recognition facial recognition silicon valley the iphone. I mean i. I was a reporter who was deep into this world of new technologies being rolled out a not just in the us. But also in places like china myanmar south korea japan turkey and i was really interested in learning about how authoritarian governments in particular. Were using these technologies surveillance and control their people. It was sort of might be. You could say for about ten years preceding the book and so i had visited xinjiang. China this region in western china a few times over the years. I knew that it was a pretty bad situation. I knew that the weaker is just like the tibetans and other groups in china were oppressed and were treated as others in in potential terrorists. But it wasn't really until my most recent trip in december two thousand seventeen that i saw just the the extent the extremity to which you know the government was just hanging. Its surveillance of forward. I mean i. I had seen a lot of things in my home journalism career. I'd seen genocides in covered massacres. And tribunals in just lots of crazy things out there. But i had never quite seen a state a region of asia that's rather obscure to westerners that had just become so massively surveilled on on every possible level. I mean we're talking. Every square foot is covered with a camera. There are police pill boxes on every corner. You know there are There's an artificial intelligence that monitors everyone. And when i went there in december two thousand seventeen. I was actually detained briefly. I had been taking photos at the police in like on. They told me to get a ticket out to leave the next morning. And of course i did. I feel lucky that it that it wasn't any worse for me. I mean there are. Westerners in china were actually imprisoned. Now it really hit me. You know that trip to cash car. Which is the historical heartland of the week as beautiful old city. That's not far from not far from pakistan kirghistan. Just on how much of a lock down. It was i mean. I stepped off the airplane. In i felt i had entered. This is like this future dystopia. That was dreamed up in psalm. Old nineteen eighties film like a blade runner type film in which everyone is just constantly being monitored and they have to watch what they say. They're not sure who's their friends. And who's their enemy. Everybody you know there are spies in the population. It's niches in united like literally. I mean at a few times. I thought like maybe a robot would pop out like there would be some kind of futuristic gadget that i had never seen of course that never happened but i was just shocked in just blown away at how quickly the chinese communist party of head set up surveillance sobia that appeared at least from the outside appeared. Could do anything that you know. The police had total power. The authorities had total control and everyone was essentially subject to the states wins. If they did something wrong they would be taken away to one of many hundreds of concentration camps and brainwash they had to correct. They're thinking they would be a a monitor. It as they went through this brainwashing process and there would be these surveillance systems telling the police what everyone's thinking what they might do in the future. I mean i could go on and on with this. But just the the intensity of the place of xinjiang. I knew that the story had to be told because i knew it would have major implications for humanity. Eventually this would not simply be limited to one score region of china. So there's a lot unpack there in before we get into the history of what you call situation. I want you to just outline for our listeners. The current situation in john. Richard touched on a little bit. But how many wiegert currently detained in the reeducation camps in. What are the living conditions like for those not in the camps short so most estimates place the number of people detained at between about a million to one point. Eight million one point. Eight million is the upward estimates. It might be totally accurate at least according to the documentation found so. This is just to put this into context. This is one tenth of the minority population of xinjiang china. The the region has about eleven to twelve million wieger is causing walks at your gets people so these are different. People from primarily muslim ethnic groups Muslim minorities that have been targeted in a war on terror that china's started a war on terror that china claims is like a terrorist war that is supposedly being waged against china by these. Suppose we terrorist. But it's a it's an overblown threat of so. This is one tenth of the population concentration camps and just to put that in perspective that number so this is now believed to be the largest internment of ethnic minorities since the holocaust we. We haven't really seen anything on this scale. I mean there were a soviet gulags and all that bite lead. Never really seen anything quite like this. Since since nazi germany rounded up a jews minorities in disabled people and other groups. You know in the search for the the mentioned the master race and i should clarify You know that there are no mass graves here in china. We're not talking gas chambers and mass graves but what we are talking about is a very insidious and relatively quiet campaign to raise people's identity and sense of self and memory and culture so they can be assimilated with total force of into the majority. Han chinese at the group on top of this. The chinese government has now been documented using four sterilizations on women which they say. The goal is to use to engage him population family control so it will raise you know the the economic standing of the region which was traditionally a very poor..

Chinese Officials Blame U.S. for Stalemate in High-Level Talks

"Let's turn now to our panel and let's look first at the relationship between china and the united states who are still figuring out how to talk to each other again following the chest beating and or chest probing the trump years possibly to beijing disappointment while. Us president has been a lot less noisy. Where china is concerned. He has not been a great deal more friendly. Nevertheless high ish level talks between the two superpowers have begun in tianjin. China's vice foreign minister asia fong is hosting deputy. Us secretary of state. Wendy sherman a isabel first of all Vice foreign minister has said that relations between the two superpowers are at a stalemate. Is she right. Certainly not wrong I mean if you look at the list of of things that each is demanding of the other they made no progress whatsoever so the chinese would like for example like the tariffs lifted which quite a lot of people think is a good idea They would like the americans to stop trying to extradite the c c o of of They would like the sanctions against chinese officials over hong kong and xinjiang lifted. None of that is going to happen. Meanwhile the americans would like the two men who are being held essentially hostage for the hallway case to be released and they would like a whole series of concessions that the chinese and not going to grant and both sites are held in a trap of rising nationalism at home so that if the chinese were to back off any of the very assertive moves that they've made over the last two months there would be a. How outrage from nationalist citizens and if the americans were to back off the bye administration was to back off the republicans would shred them in congress. So i don't see it really warming up I think the best they can do is keep talking to each other rather than not

Hey the delta very is is the surge in coronavirus cases in the delta. Very is the their reasoning. Excuse behind this. But they've stopped light so there's a lot of Things like that there was a lotta trash talking. I think on twitter and as of late it seems like everyone sorta calm down and there is some diplomatic talking behind the scenes of trying to make this work support. I think the the white house press secretary has commented that they've been having high level talks with these folks and they would like stable energy prices or something to that degree. I don't think that at least the saudi oil minister when he was interviewed on. Cnbc a couple of days ago. He said that he wasn't allowed to about things. He wasn't allowed to talk about but he had not spoken directly with Sounded like he had not spoken directly with the white house. So i don't think the white house has probably been too aggressive and the fact that prices dropped down a little bit Probably on the back of higher dollar it it quelled those nerves a little bit. But i do think this is a the. The market seems A little naive understand this. This doesn't seem like a big deal but it could easily become a really big deal because all it takes is a couple folks. I mean russia. Basically you have to assume that the can't increase output significantly right so that would make people calmer and i think the fact that the iran sanctions you know the fact that we are continuing. Those talks that don't they do seem to be stalling. And there's a lot of there seems to be increasing pessimism on that that has focused on the bullish oil side. Feeling pretty comfortable. They don't think those barrels can be brought. I'm not nearly as comfortable about that. Iran was able to add a million barrels a day back pretty quickly in the heart of all these sanctions. So personally i think regardless of sanctions. Yes it will be harder. They're financially constrained is going to be more difficult. But i think that iran is going to push forward In their ties with with china at least at the very least getting more more cash and trying to build up their production and not directly to directly to china and maybe india possible in other countries. So i think the market is Is a little bit is not appreciating the risk onto the downside in price should these. You know five million barrels a day in change..

The imagination of bitcoin is the world over but of course this wouldn't be bitcoin without some controversy and strive to go with it last night. I jokingly said that today's episode is going to have to be called the empire strikes back and this wasn't in reference specifically to the global powers that be getting up el salvador's craw about bitcoin although there is a meeting with the imf today that could provide some insight into their initial reaction to the move in fact as i was prepping. The show preemptive comments from the m. f. came out jerry rice and imf spokesperson said quote adoption of. Bitcoin is legal. Tender raises a number of macroeconomic financial and legal issues. That require careful analysis. Which i mean isn't surprising. Of course they were going to say this. And i'm not overly concerned yet.

The Trump Administration is taking a step to crack down on some of China's worst human rights abuses. The U. S is now banning imports of cotton and tomatoes from China's Xinjiang region. That's a semi autonomous region in northwestern China, where Beijing has placed as many as one million Muslim leaders in reeducation camps. The U. S.

Remind us briefly Allison, who are the wingers and what's their status in China? The Wickers are an ethnic majority population in the Xin Jiang Autonomous, Weaker Region, which is a Chinese colonial term for the region of weavers refer to it is East Turkistan or the weaker region, and they and other majority Muslim and Turkic peoples in the region has been under repressive policies. For years, China has termed them terrorists has four decades sought to assimilate them into the Chinese population into the Han population. Through really coercive methods, stripping them of their Rights to speak their language to have privacy in the family. Taking Children to Locked kindergarten separating family members. Sending weaker is outside of the weaker region to work limiting birth forced sterilizations really crimes against humanity on a mass scale, So this ban seems to be pretty important. What are some of the implications that will come out of it? I mean for cotton I have to imagine this is going to be a big deal for the garment industry. That's right. This is a huge deal because China produces 20% of the world's cotton most of that is produced in the weaker region. In addition, huge amount of textile production happens in the weaker region. And, you know, we talk about supply chains in the garment industry. The really supply webs so cotton moves from.

"Leech trove of Chinese government documents has provided a chilling picture of that government's crackdown on ethnic minorities in the far western Xinjiang region of to a million people have been detained in interment camps and prisons in the sparsely populated region over the past three years the government has repeatedly described its camps is nothing more than job training centers these documents paint a very different picture of a government afraid of Muslim extremism and looking to control it at any cost New York times reporters Austin Ramsey and Chris Buckley have just released an extensive report on these leaked documents in Austin Ramsey joins me now from Hong Kong welcome thanks so this league is unprecedented what exactly are these documents you've obtained and what can you tell us about the authenticity there's about four hundred pages of documents speeches by a season playing another Chinese leaders directives on policy and change and also some some records of officials who were punished and and we have great confidence in their authenticity and these are internal documents right that would be Communist Party documents a wouldn't be disseminated outside of the party elites that's right remind us how many people are being detained in in China and and who they are there's no exact number but the number is believed to be in the hundreds of thousands of as many as a million or more these people are are largely from Turkic ethnic groups the Uighurs arc probably the largest all of our callers oxes are predominantly Muslim minority groups in China so your story focuses at least initially on students from the Xinjiang province starting elsewhere in China who returned home to suddenly find parents relatives and neighbors missing and they're met by a local official to explain the situation a what would those students told they were told several things they were told that their detained relatives were not criminals but that they had issues that were often described as as like infections of of their thinking and Sir because these people were considered in the language of these documents to have infections of their thinking they were sent to a place where they would be treated for that and the language in these documents that you received is at times chillingly Orwellian I don't think there's another word for it I like to read some of it students should be grateful that the authorities have taken their relatives away a treasure this chance for free education at the party and government has provided to thoroughly radic Kate aronie is thinking and also learn Chinese and job skills this offers a great foundation for a happy life for your family it's very explicit and unsparing that's right and and the document also sort of points out of the suffering that that these policies are causing it and so it in the sample questions you hear from students who say we can no longer thank crops because because family members are detained or my detain family member is is so old they don't work anymore why did why did they need to be detained it shows a wide range of the of the suffering caused by these policies as you said in the introduction the government has repeatedly asserted that these camps are nothing more than job training centers that don't abuse people there's been a lot of reporting by NPR and others refuting that what these documents to show is the communist party's internal thinking and the genesis of this and and your report is titled absolutely no mercy a quote from president she's in pain can you put his thinking and motivations into context you can hear from these that that she is is seems quite frustrated and upset with what is happening in Xinjiang in terms of separatism and extremism and and acts of terrorism because I have been a huge attack right by Uighur separatists a lot more than a hundred people have been killed and wounded that's right you can you can see that he's he's really trying to figure out what to do and in the past there have been crackdowns and there is also this belief that economic development but sort of ease all the problems and you hear see sort of turning away from god and saying we we shouldn't believe the improving the economy if you John is this going to solve this and so he he seems to be sort of pushing for a for a very tough line although it points you to say you know we should be careful we should worry about discrimination against minority groups and she's on the most of the speeches are are very very tough and while he doesn't outline specifically that the policy for camps you can see quite clearly how it follows from there does the leaking of these documents hand to possible dissenter concerns within the Communist Party on these issues yes I mean and leaks are quite rare in China our coverage and since two thousand three and can't really think of anything comparable to this you know the the the person who gave this to us basically one and the party leaders to be to be held accountable for these policies and then within the documents themselves you can see a as a certain degree of of dissent there's a couple officials who were who were punished for not enforcing the efforts to three large numbers of people and has the Chinese government reacted responded to your report I mean there are known to you know be very firm when these kinds of leaks happen or or this kind of reporting is on earth yes I do I spoke with the foreign ministry spokesman in in Hong Kong this afternoon and he didn't have anything to say yes for expecting a reply Monday do you think the importance of these documents are in terms of how the Chinese government has been framing on these interment camps and what's happening there why I think they show pretty clearly that that wall this is described externally as sort of this rather mild education and job training programs that that it is internally considered punishment please see that word used in the documents and the realization that window the camps.

"In Xinjiang, some of them state own that use a very particular kind of labor, and that is members of ethnic minorities, who are forced by the government into training programs that combine both job training and political indoctrination. And then when they're done with these training camps than they are assigned to a factory that is separate from the mass internment camps, which the Chinese government also tries to sell as as job training. There are some connections there. For example, one company has join. Venture with another Chinese company that is controlled by an arm of the Chinese state that runs its own interment camps. So basically you're saying companies like Adidas and the gap and H M and others are somewhere along the supply chain for materials originating in these labor camps. That's right. There's a very good chance that if you have an ATM shirt that some of the thread in there was spun by people who were part of these involuntary training systems and then assignment to work at a factory so from what, you know, Ryan is, at fair to describe what's happening in these camps, in Xinjiang as forced labour. It's really impossible right now for members of these predominantly Muslim minority groups to say no to any government program. They know that they can be disappeared into one of these interment camps, that old a million or two million people at any moment with no criminal charge. So it's really not safe to say no. Although some people do there's one report of people that. Escaped from the tomato paste jobs that they were assigned to. But essentially, it's, it's an environment in which there's no, there's no way to give consent. And so, I think it has to be considered a form of forced labor. So how have western companies that are part of the supply chain of materials at our producer these camps. How are they responding to these allegations? I think some of them are probably genuinely surprised and others probably didn't put much effort into knowing what was going on in the first place, Adidas has really been a bright spot. They say that they ended the use of labor that was assigned by the state back in two thousand sixteen which is quite impressive. That's, that's really the moment when things were starting to get very bad in Xinjiang. Other companies have really just tried to make the issue go away. Swaggie has ties to production in Incheon, John in their, their CEO has rather implausibly expressed complete ignorance about even the existence of the internment camp system in assimilation program for years. I know. Some people have suggested a boycott of companies that are in the supply chain, for some of the goods that come out come out of these forced labor camps in Xinjiang. But with more than a million people detained in some cases and doesn't seem like the supply chain is slowing down. What can a boycott actually do anything that can that can talented the way they're doing business, there will make the oppression of the week and other Turkic Muslims much more costly for the Chinese government..

"People don't know. Julia who is all you hear about people. I think it's better to introduce from the food your culture than others things. A lot of people after eating asking me why you and your food is very amazing and a very new we never had it always asking this question. And after that, I introduced my culture, my people. This is so important in academics. Because like many waco's she fails her cultures under- threat in recent decades large numbers of Han. Chinese China's ethnic majority have migrated Xinjiang. The week is thought to number around ten million and make up about forty five percent of the population. But in the nineteen fifties it was closer to seventy five percents. The we have complained of discrimination and hundreds of lives have been lost in bloody clashes which the Chinese government blames on Islamist militants and separatists. But human rights groups say the violence is a reaction to repressive policies and intense surveillance, many Wego who live outside China say they haven't been able to speak to family members in years Franks groups claim that as many as a million acres and now being detained in camps indefinitely without charge. China strongly denies this describing the camps is vacation or training centers designed to help tackle terrorism..

"This is on the media. I'm Bob Garfield for two and a half years in the Xinjiang province of far northwest China. The government has been building a network of internment camps fenced in and police from guard towers evidence is probing that up for a million Muslim week is being held by Chinese car keys is so crude reeducation camps, six employees of Radio Free Asia say their relatives back in Xinjiang have disappeared in the last year three of my brothers. And two of my sisters are missing. I lost contact with my mom. The Wheaties have been taken away just to suppress any nascent separatist inclinations, but to eradicate their culture perceived like Buddhist Tibet to be a threat to the country's on Chinese majority on top of trying to reshape entire people's way of life. The communist party is attempting to shape the world's perception of. What is taking place with the sometimes careless help of western media historian. Ryan thumb has studied Wieger culture for twenty years and written about the Chinese government's activities. He's a senior research fellow at the university of Nottingham and author of the sacred roots of weaker history. Ryan welcome to the show. Thank you. I'm I'm happy to be here. What is it about them that so puts the communist party on edge? The overarching reason that the Chinese authorities have most frequently given is that these are people endanger of extremist mindsets. They're endanger of picking up international terrorist. Ideologies that will lead them to engage in acts of violent resistance against the state. The great irony here is that the things they're calling extremism are often incredibly minor for example, giving up smoking not selling alcohol. At your convenience store. Not greeting ficials on the street. Not watching government television possessing any number of books, including really innocuous novels. It's actually quite difficult to avoid doing something that the government would call extremist now pretty alarmingly, you say that the Chinese propaganda push to spin the story of the weaker camps has been successful. Why do you think it's working the way in which it's working most effectively is that it has injected images created by the Chinese state of camps that have been altered dressed up specifically for foreign audiences. Filled with people who are chosen for these films, and who are trained to give certain kinds of answers after discussing this with my family. I applied to come here voluntarily John most shifted students are not proficient in Chinese easy instigated and coerced by terrorists and extremists. Ideologies. If I had not come here to study. Maybe I would've followed as religious extremists and walked down the path of crime. They have managed to inject those images into our media environment. They appear in quite a number of.
