Anonymous activists at ‘Operation Tibet‘ issued August 22, 220 a video statement calling for action on Save The Children due to that organization’s continued silence concerning China’s mass abuse of Uyghur children. Many thanks to @AnonymousTibet for sharing news on this.

A Spiritual Silence On China’s Genocidal Regime

The following religious leaders are utterly silent on China’s genocidal persecution of Tibetans in occupied Tibet and Uyghurs in occupied east Turkistan (so-called Xinjiang region)

Regarded by some as the highest authority in Sunni Islamic thinking, the present incumbent, Ahmad al-Tayyeb has offered no words of concern or opposition on China’s genocidal assault against his Uyghur Muslim brothers and sisters.

Mr Vladimir Mikhailovich Gundyayev like his political colleagues within the Kremlin is completely silent on the odious excesses of the Chinese regime and has not spoken a word of concern on the terrorism being inflicted upon the Uyghurs.

His church cut a secret deal with the Chinese regime in a what has proved to be a failed effort to protect Catholics in China. That arrangement required from the Vatican silence on issues such as the plight of Tibetans and Uyghurs.

Martin Fair, like his predecessors refuses to comment on China’s vicious oppression of the Uyghurs, or indeed offer any concern on the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh offering a fellowship to Professor Jiang Hiefu. An individual with close links to China’s forced-organ removal atrocities.

There’s numerous reasons for the ghastly silence of these supposedly compassionate and spiritual figures, in essence though their refusal to speak out against China is a result of political and economic forces. Be that a shared political ideology with China’s regime, trade considerations; or in the case of the Vatican naive and misguided collaboration, the result is complicity.

Time Save The Children Broke Its Silence On China’s Mass Abuse Of Uyghur Children

Time Save The Children Broke Its Silence On China's Mass Abuse Of Uyghur Children

Caution: Disturbing viewing advisory.

But this footage shot inside one of the many child detention centers run by the Chinese regime in occupied East Turkistan, demands to be witnessed. Because it shows a glimpse of the brutality and abuse inflicted upon Uyghur children, already abducted from their parents and mentally and emotionally traumatized inside what are indoctrination prisons.

This is happening on a massive scale and like the sickening abuse suffered by infants who are targeted by pedophiles, the scars left by such violations last a lifetime.

Yet these atrocities are being deliberately ignored by the very organization which declares itself as a guardian and champion of children’s rights. Despite being repeatedly informed, lobbied and appealed to Save The Children (STC) is refusing to offer a word of concern or condemnation against the terrorism being inflicted by China’s regime against Uyghur infants.

We are determined to continue our exposure of and challenge to STC and invite all those supporting human rights and opposing child abuse to join us. That organization’s silence is nothing less than complicity and as such makes them a legitimate focus for action!

The Shameless Legacy Of Britain’s Perfidious Posturing On Hong Kong

Well the inevitable has arrived and the goal of China’s regime, to extend its cancerous control over Hong Kong, realized. Defended by what that fetid authority claims as ‘law’. According to  declarations from Beijing it ‘s now a criminal  offense to show any sign of dissent against the Chinese authorities. Opposition to the dark excesses of Xi Jinping’s dictatorship is met with a range of vicious and oppressive punishments.

Torture, executions, forced-labor and disappearances are the incoming abnormal for Hong Kong, a grim and dangerous future awaits. One that was entirely predictable and known to those British politicians and civil servants who in signing their 1984 agreement with China cruelly and cynically betrayed the citizens of Hong Kong.

The Shameless Legacy Of Britain's Perfidious Posturing On Hong Kong

It is unlikely that the true nature and extent of Britain’s appeasement during those negotiations shall ever be fully known, even what will prove a heavily a redacted account of events is scheduled to remain a secret until 2026

What is blatantly clear is that the British in their early talks with Deng Xiaoping’s regime told ithemselves that it was possible to keep control and influence over Hong Kong. That position soon crumbled and Margaret Thatcher and her advisors adopted a strategy of prioritizing UK financial interests in the region. The assurances on protecting freedoms, democracy and autonomy were always destined to be little more than posturing, diplomatic face-saving for the British. After all in their over a century of rule in Hong Kong they had done almost nothing to build genuine democratic rights and infrastructure. It was a colonial occupation.

The platitudes offered by Britain on its treaty obligations to ensure civil and political freedom for Hong Kong’s citizens are exposed when measured against the economic determination of several UK governments to secure lucrative trade relations with China. That remains the policy of Boris Johnson and his advisors. Even as protestors today took to the streets in Hong Kong to oppose the tyrannical law imposed by Beijing the focus of British foreign policy consultants is securing profits from the Chinese.

In truth, like the State Department, the British Foreign Office and political establishment have long known about the odious excesses of China’s regime. Just like they knew in their negotiations on Hong Kong that they were consigning its people to the bloody maw of Chinese rule. We see reports today that one or two members of the British authorities have spoken in their Parliament of their concerns about Uyghur women being forcibly sterilized on order of the Chinese authorities.

This is political opportunism, not a legitimate commitment to human rights. We say this because as part of activism over the years our network worked tirelessly to tell governments including that of the UK of China’s mass forced sterilization campaigns. Yet despite detailed documents and reports on the issue made available to political representatives in England, no action was taken. Indeed those women whose lives had been viciously traumatized by China’s forced sterilization policies were ignored, while the very same foreign relations advisors who counseled the UK government on Hong Kong remained tight-lipped. Fully aware of the atrocities but more concerned with encouraging and maintaining commercial relations with the Chinese tyranny.

A similar duplicity and appeasement contributed to the failed treaty on Hong Kong, there was never any genuine commitment to protecting citizens rights there. The emphasis was upon securing long-established British economic interest in the region It was with that in mind that Margaret Thatcher and her negotiating advisors signed up to the empty promises agreed by China.

It was from the beginning a treachery forged from financial interests, with a final tragic and unavoidable conclusion. Those architects of the Sino-British Joint Declaration knew damn well what the outcome would be, but it was not the fate of Hong Kong’s people which troubled them. Rather protecting British political, diplomatic and economic interests!

Venality And Double-Standards That Allow U.S Corporation To Service China’s Genetic Tyranny

Venality And Double-Standards That Allow US Corporation To Service China's Genetic Tyranny

Image: politico

For anyone needing to get a closer inspect on the tangled corruption of US governance and policy on China, here’s a short breakdown.

Trump and his Administration, advised by intelligence agencies shut the door on Huawei, asserting national security interests. Meanwhile economic sanctions on China tighten against an increasingly hostile narrative cautioning on China’s expanding global influence.

Yet while the President struts and postures on China, a corporation who  some have claimed he held investments in, is supplying DNA kits to the Chinese regime. So what you may ask that’s just international business.

Venality And Double-Standards That Allow US Corporation To Service China's Genetic Tyranny

Image: chinadaily

Well the equipment in question is a vital component of a disturbing policy that’s forcibly taking DNA and blood samples from hundreds of millions across China, and occupied lands such as Tibet and East Turkistan. The aim of this campaign is to assemble a colossal data-base enabling the state even greater control, monitoring and identification. It is genetic surveillance and oppression.

Venality And Double-Standards That Allow US Corporation To Service China's Genetic Tyranny

A researcher with Thermo Fisher Scientific stated that:

The company designed one testing kit to look for the specific genetic markers sought by the Ministry of Public Security, Zhong said, a common industry practice. Another was tailored to distinguish between China’s ethnic groups, including Uighurs (sic) and Tibetans”. (emphasis added) Source

A February 2019 Fortune report claimed that  Thermo Fisher Scientific has chosen to stop selling genetic testing equipment in occupied East Turkistan (so-called Xinjiang Province). What of the rest of China? Supplies sold in Beijing are not capable of transport to that region?

One thing for sure there is no consent, people must comply, failure to do so results in arrest beatings, torture and prison.

This worrying reality however does not appear to concern either Trump or the company itself Thermo Fisher Scientific, whose involvement was reported on by human rights organizations.

John Bolton Knows Very Well That US Administrations Have Long Been Complicit In China’s Torture And Tyranny

John Bolton Knows Very Well That US Administrations Have Long Been Complicit In China's Torture And Tyranny

Image: huffpost

Is anyone really surprised at the idea of an American President endorsing the torture and genocidal policies of the Chinese regime? More here  If so then such incredulity is based on a lack of knowledge. The cold fact is that the photo-opportunities at the White house and occasional comments on human rights are a concealment. US Administrations care little for the plight of Tibetans or Uyghurs under the brutal rule of China.

Now John Bolton’s claims that Trump supported Chinese dictator Xi Jinping’s establishment of concentration camps to incarcerate untold numbers of Uyghurs may or not be accurate. What though is a matter of record is that successive Presidents and State Department officials have valued trade and geo-political interests with China far beyond the protection of human rights or freedom.

How else can we explain the disclosure that ‘interrogation’ techniques used in Guantanamo were in part based upon a Chinese ‘Cold War’ torture manual! This was without doubt only possible with the knowledge and approval of senior US officials, with the unwritten consent of the Administration. More Here

Just how far US Presidents have been willing to appease the Chinese regime was exposed by reports that back in 2002 Chinese intelligence officials were allowed into Guantanamo to interrogate, threaten and abuse Uyghurs held there.

It’s not about the truth telling or not of Bolton, nor if Trump really did applaud China’s concentration camps, rather the focus should be upon the decades of appeasement towards China by successive Presidents and State Department officials. That’s not news or speculation but a matter of fact!

Tibet’s Aspiration For Independence Consumed To The Flames By Exiled Tibetan Administration

Tibet's Aspiration For Independence Consumed To The Flames By Exiled Tibetan Administration

Image: archivenet

Tibet’s culture is being burned into oblivion by the occupying Chinese regime, yet blazing even more fiercely within Tibetan hearts is the hope that one day their land shall be free of China’s tyranny and that their rightful independence will be regained. This aspiration has fueled resistance to Chinese rule since Tibet was invaded in 1950. More recently it has been a major demand issued by Tibetans who have self-immolated. A reality not only ignored by the exiled Tibetan Administration but cynically re-written, an action we oppose and expose.

This is our statement, released January 3, 2020 across social media.

Concentration Camps, Mass Surveillance, Torture And Oppression The Grim Backdrop To The 2022 Winter Olympics

Concentration Camps, Mass Surveillance, Torture And Oppression The Grim Backdrop To The 2022 Winter Olympics

Image: gannetcdn/amended @tibettruth

With 2020 about to blast off we thought it an opportune moment to remind our subscribers, readers and many friends around the planet of the degree of corruption at the heart of international athletics and within the Olympic community.

Of course there’s so many issues, but for us it’s the sickening appeasement of China’s regime which is most irksome.  None more so than agreeing to host the 2022 Winter Games in that country. A decision taken despite the broken assurances and failures surrounding the 2008 Olympics, hosted in China. During which Tibetans and Uyghurs were being brutally oppressed, tortured and jailed for demanding freedom and human rights.

Those heading the international athletics community turned their eyes away, maintained a silence, while not a single athlete or club we appealed to directly expressed any concern or solidarity. Others went further, including the guy above, Craig Reedie, current head of the world doping agency, who denied and appeased on the subject of China’s troubling human rights violations.

This narrative of denial, excuse and concealment looks set to be repeated during the next twelve months as preparations intensify for the 2022 Winter Games. Will athletes take a stand this time, or can we expect the allure of fame, self-interest and fortune to take precedence once again?

Arsenal FC And English Premier League In The Pocket Of China’s Regime

Like the rest of the corporate world England’s premier soccer teams feed from the trough of China’s regime. Chinese money and with it a corrosive influence is increasingly funding English clubs, as witnessed by pitch-side commercials, shirt branding and Chinese language fan sites. Teams are also investing inside China, seeking to maximize their commercial footprint. The potential profits ensure an active collusion from soccer’s elite who close their eyes to China‘s dark record of human rights violations, censorship and forced labor-camps.

So desperate are clubs to nurture and maintain positive relations with China, that like many governments, they signal to the Chinese regime that they will not permit concerns on human rights to interfere with their lucrative corporate objectives. When presented with criticism on this they employ the classic excuse of declaring themselves as being non-political. Which is a joke since their collaborative silence in knowledge of persecution and oppression is a conscious decision very much defined by politics!

Against this background of craven appeasement, yesterday, we noted the comments of the Arsenal player, Mesut Özil who posted on Instagram

“East Turkistan, the bleeding wound of the Ummah, resisting against the persecutors trying to separate them from their religion. They burn their Qurans. They shut down their mosques. They ban their schools. They kill their holy men. The men are forced into camps and their families are forced to live with Chinese men. The women are forced to marry Chinese men. But Muslims are silent. They won’t make a noise. They have abandoned them. Don’t they know that giving consent for persecution is persecution itself?”.

We applaud and respect the integrity and conviction of this player to add his voice and status to give greater exposure to the cultural genocide waged against the Uyghur people. He is right to draw attention to the apathy of fellow Muslims, yet such callous indifference and silence is not restricted to the followers of Islam. Western governments and Non-Governmental Organizations such as United Nations Women and UNCSW are silent on the harrowing abuses being forced upon Uyghurs.

What of his club Arsenal? What’s their response? Within hours of his online comments they posted a statement on a number of prominent Chinese social-media platforms, including Weibo in which they stated:

“Regarding the comments made by Mesut Özil on social media, Arsenal must make a clear statement…The content published is Özil’s personal opinion. As a football club, Arsenal has always adhered to the principle of not involving itself in politics.”.

That grovelling appeasement may not be sufficient to satisfy the extreme nationalism of Chinese opinion, engineered by years of state imposed indoctrination. As in other recent cases were corporations have been required to issue apologies it may well be that Arsenal will be issuing further statements, would they if pushed release Mesut Özil? You betcha!

In collaborating with China’s regime; ignoring the atrocities and misery inflicted upon Uyghurs, Tibetans, Mongolians, Manchurians and the Han Chinese people, premier league clubs such as Arsenal are very much engaged in politics. Their collective silence is nothing less than a willing complicity!
