China to make ‘strong response’ after UK suspends Hong Kong extradition treaty | AFP

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin says China will give a “strong response” after the United Kingdom suspended its extradition treaty with Hong Kong in protest at a controversial new security law in the territory. He also says it is “completely absurd” to draw comparisons with China’s treatment of Uighur people and Nazi Germany’s treatment of Jews. He then goes on to attack United States Secretary of State Pompeo for his statement criticising China’s persecution of Falungong practioners.

They Come For Us At Night: China’s Vanishing Muslims (Full Report)

China’s Uighur minority live a dystopian nightmare of constant surveillance and brutal policing. At least one million of them are believed to be living in what the U.N. described as a “massive internment camp that is shrouded in secrecy,” while many Uighur children are taken to state-run orphanages where they’re indoctrinated into Chinese customs.

The Uighurs’ plight has largely been kept hidden from the world, thanks to China’s aggressive attempts to suppress the story at all costs.

VICE News’ Isobel Yeung posed as a tourist to gain unprecedented access to China’s western Xinjiang region, which has been nearly unreachable by journalists.

She and our crew experienced China’s Orwellian surveillance and harassment first-hand during their time in Xinjiang, and captured chilling hidden-camera footage of eight Uighur men detained by police in the middle of the night. We spoke with members of the Uighur community about their experience in these camps, and about China’s attempts to silence their history and lifestyle under the cover of darkness.
