Description

In Part 2 of our series, we tell the story of an American citizen whose family members have been detained in Chinese re-education camps for Uighurs and members of other Muslim minority groups. We look at what his efforts to free them reveal about the global reach of China’s surveillance. Guest: Paul Mozur, a technology reporter for The New York Times based in Shanghai, spoke with Ferkat Jawdat, a Uighur and American citizen who lives in Virginia.

Aren't "re-education camps" a regular act from the Chinese playbook? Even more now that Winnie The Pooh is the new dictator for life?

so, let's say china leaves the Muslims alone. the rest of the world will see the Chinese govt as less dangerous and improve relations with them. win-win-win.
