In the largest internment of minorities since the second World War, China has locked up more than 1 million ethnic Uighurs in internment camps in the north-western region of Xinjiang. Recent weeks have thrown up even more evidence of these camps. Leaked Communist Party papers reveal amongst other things, instructions from the top on showing ‘absolutely no mercy’ in Xinjiang. There’s been lots of condemnation, but little action.
The US House of Representatives has passed a bill to impose sanctions against Chinese officials. Turkey has denounced what China calls re-education camps as a ‘great shame for humanity’. Now demands arise for Germany and Europe to act and stand up to China ans sanction the treatment of the Uighurs.
