The world’s insatiable appetite for PPE as a stated precaution against infection from viruses has lead to a range of issues, not least the environmental impact of untold numbers of discarded masks. The panic (or calculation) of governments to shroud their health-workers and general citizenry in masks, gowns and gloves has also made a number of businesses very, very rich. Including some based in China (where as the world knows very well, employment and human rights are non-existent).

But those realities have not prevented countries such as the United Kingdom from engaging in a number of shadowy deals to procure medical equipment, that often times has proved to be dangerously ineffective and required withdrawal, so much for cautious management of public expenditure! We see a report today from, ‘The New European’ (an English online journal) that the British have paid the equivalent of $125 million to a Chinese corporation that uses a hotel room in downtown Beijing as its offices!
The Beijing Union Glory Investment Company, like many such corporations operates closely with, and no doubt invested by the Chinese regime. An authority that inflicts genocidal policies against the Tibetan and Uyghur peoples. Such however is the crazed momentum for PPE the British Department for Health (with the knowledge and support of England’s version of the State Department) ignored entirely the harrowing misery suffered across Tibet and East Turkistan. Yet in only January this year the British Secretary for Foreign Affairs, Dominic Raab announced in Parliament that UK companies would face fines if they could not show that their products or supply chains were free from any association with forced labor in so-called Xinjiang.

It is, of course, a matter of fact that the region is a huge producer of cotton and it has become increasingly apparent and well documented that slave-labor is used in that production.Which returns us to the subject of medical protective clothing and equipment. Did the British not realize that a major component used in the manufacturing of such products is cotton? Surely either Matt Hancock or Dominic Raab stop to consider where the source of a government backed Chinese company would source their materials from when producing PPE items? Maybe they asked the Chinese where the cotton used in such items was from? If so they would take credulity to a whole new level if believing any refutation that the cotton content was not from the very region cited by the UK authorities for housing forced-labor camps!

We hope any of our UK friends and readers will seek a freedom-of-information disclose from the British ministries of health and foreign affairs on this issue. As it stands the government in Britain looks to be in violation of its own foreign and trading policies with respect to the importation of goods linked to forced labor. Is this how the British seek to tackle human rights abuses in so-called Xinjiang?
Of course in truth it doesn’t give a damn about the condition of Uyghurs enslaved and exploited to produce and process cotton, most likely a core component of the PPE bought by the UK government. Nor is it troubled that its people will be wearing equipment made in the traumatizing misery of China’s concentration camps.

Slave-labor has long been a go-to component of the Chinese regime’s oppressive tool box. Having inflicted millions of deaths since the rise of the communist party of China it continues to destroy lives.
It’s become increasingly used in occupied East Turkistan and indeed Tibet. With growing international concern that products sold around the world are manufactured at such places of misery and abuse.
Such anxieties are of no importance to China’s tyrannical authorities who continue with mass-arrests and deportations of Uyghurs and Tibetans in bondage to Chinese run companies and government backed projects.
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)
Grand Imam of al-Azhar
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.
Primate Of The Russian Orthodox Church
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.
Chief Rabbinate Council Of Israel
This body, headed by the Rabbis of various Jewish schools, has neither condemned or opposed the brutal tyranny waged against the Uyghur people.
Archbishop Of Canterbury
The Church Of England is deeply enmeshed within the British political establishment. The current office-holder Justin Welby has like his Catholic colleague, remained tight-lipped on the persecution of Uyghurs.
Moderator Of The Church Of Scotland
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.
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.
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.
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.
China is intensifying its DNA terrorism against not only its own people but Tibetans, Uyghurs, Mongolians and Manchurians. There is of course no choice when the jack-booted thugs stop you in the street, march into your place-of-work, or breakdown your front door.
You comply and give up your blood and saliva or face torture and prison. To think that Thermo-Fisher, a good ‘ol American corporation is profiting from this tyranny by supplying the Chinese regime with ‘testing kits’
Meanwhile in occupied Tibet the oppression continues under the ever present surveillance systems, facial recognition cameras and body-scanner check-points. To further eradicate any sense of Tibetan cultural identity the people of Tibet are being coerced into removing Buddhist prayer flags
These latest actions, set against the backdrop of over a million Uyghurs held in concentration camps and Tibet in chains, its children forced to speak only Chinese is a form of genocide that Himmler and his Nazi thugs would have recognized!
To those who claim any parallel with the harrowing crimes of National Socialist Party is invalid and inaccurate you are referred to the Tibetan women whose lives have been forever traumatized by China’s mass-sterilization program. Or talk with an elderly Uyghur woman now without her family, all held in the camps, while she is daily enduring the misery of carrying out forced-labor.
If that doesn’t convince you pay a visit to one of the countless detention centers across occupied East Turkistan where thousands of Uyghur infants are being held, heartbroken, confused and in shock at being taken from their Mothers and Fathers. This is child abuse on an industrial scale.
What is being inflicted upon the Tibetan and Uyghur people is nothing less than cultural genocide, some may wince at the analogy, tough!
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. More Here A visit approved by Bush (Junior) and the State Department, during a time when requests were being denied to US Congressmen for access to the detention facility!
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!
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!

The Chinese regime today issued yet another fact-free claim, this time asking the world to believe that huge numbers of Uyghurs, detained within indoctrination camps have been released. This latest deception was promoted by Uyghur collaborator in occupied East Turkistan (so-called Xinjiang region) Shohrat Zakir, who is Beijing’s puppet governor.
According to Mr Zakir:
“At present, all the trainees (sic) who participated … have completed their studies (sic), found stable employment with the help of the government and have improved their quality of life and live a happy life.” Source: The Guardian December 9, 2019
Clearly this traitor is unwilling to recognize the program of cultural genocide inflicted by his Chinese paymasters upon the Uyghur people
