The internal workings of a vast chain of Chinese internment camps used to detain at least a million people from the nation’s Muslim minorities are laid out in leaked Communist Party documents published on Sunday.
The China Cables, a cache of classified government papers, appear to provide the first official glimpse into the structure, daily life and ideological framework behind centres in north-western Xinjiang region that have provoked international condemnation.
Obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ)and shared with the Guardian, the BBC and 15 other media partners, the documents have been independently assessed by experts who have concluded they are authentic. China said they had been “fabricated”.
…when is our Government going to have words with our largest trading partner about those internment camps?
Cause like, these camps are pretty horrific.
I’m not sure we can keep trading and looking the other way can we?
Our need to keep selling milk powder to China means we are being silent on this vast human rights abuse that is a manufactured Orwellian obscenity.
Our reliance on milk powder damages our water quality, pollutes with climate changing gases and is ultimately a sunset industry that will be replaced by far cheaper synthetic milk.
So on top of the environmental damage, our reliance on milk powder is self censoring us to one of the worst ongoing human rights abuses of our age?
Is milk a bit fascist?
