Xinjiang—How Uyghurs are Persecuted in Concentration Camps, and Everywhere Else Too

Description

This week's #asiaforlifepodcast is covering stories from the Xinjiang province of China. Many of the hundreds of thousands of Uyghur men and women in China's "vocational education and training centers" are detained involuntarily. But can these detention centers really be called "concentration camps"?

This episode is about the ways that people are persecuted, whether they are in detention or not. We also discuss why it doesn't make sense to compare their situation to anything happening to any people group in the West. No, it's not the same--and no, it's not even close.

Chemical sterilization and coerced abortion for women, and mass incarceration for children. These are just a few of the ways that China deals with its citizens in Xinjiang.

Is there anything we can do? After listening to this podcast, please feel free to share any of your ideas.
