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

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’s Genocide Against Tibet & East Turkistan

China's Genocide Against Tibet & East Turkistan

Image: archivenet

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!

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!

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!

China Issues Delusional And Mendacious Claim That Uyghurs Have Been Freed

China Issues Delusional And Mendacious Claim That Uyghurs Have Been Freed

Image: compiled by @tibettruth

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

United Nations’ International Day For Eliminating Some Violence Against Women

United Nations' International Day For Eliminating Some Violence Against Women
United Nations’ International Day For Eliminating Some Violence Against Women

As November 25th has been designated the International Day For The Elimination Of Violence Against Women our sense of solidarity towards this event and the objectives it champions is tainted by a troubling reality.

The very United Nations agencies behind this event, UN Women and UN Commission on the Status of Women are the same organizations which have knowingly and consistently ignored China’s program of forced sterilizations against women. Along with the wider women’s ‘movement’ and prominent NGOs, supposedly dedicated to women’s rights, they pose themselves as defenders of such freedoms and human rights across social media. Yet have cynically refused to condemn or oppose a range of violations inflicted by the Chinese regime.

These include: a policy of forcing Uyghur women into marriages with Han Chinese colonizers of occupied East Turkistan (so-called Xinjiang). Coercing Uyghur women to accept Chinese officials cohabiting their homes and sleeping with them, in essence rape! Detaining thousands of Uyghur women in forced labor and indoctrination camps where they face emotional, physical and psychological abuse. The placement of Uyghur girls,many infants into detention centers where they are denied access to their parents and forced and brainwashed to adopt Chinese language and cultural identity. A program of forced sterilizations which targets Uyghur, Tibetan, Manchurian, Mongolian and Han Chinese women.

This harrowing catalogue of violations does not trouble those who would have you accept them as being defenders of women’s rights, it’s not ignorance of these disturbing abuses which explains their collective silence. The reason is one of political correctness, selective values and agenda that refuse to stand against such atrocities, this is a singular example of silence is complicity. The hypocrisy and denial such organizations present on these issues is breathtaking and questions entirely their credibility and ethical standing.

Tibet’s Exiled Administration Promoting China’s ‘Common Destiny’ Propaganda Film

Tibet’s Exiled Administration Promoting Chinese Propaganda Film

Anyone within the Central Tibetan Administration (formerly the exiled Government of Tibet now CTA) care to explain why on earth the editorial team of their website has featured a promotional review of a film which, while posing as an artful exploration of lives and communities transformed through economic and infrastructure developments, is essentially  propaganda.

Last time we checked the CTA (headed by Doctor Lobsang Sangay) was, apart from peddling an appeasement deal-of- surrender to China, engaged in exposing and opposing the suppression of Tibet and erosion of Tibetan culture. It regularly issues statements and reports on the expansionist agenda of China, cautions the international community on the corrosive influence of Chinese corporations and regularly criticizes projects, that have exploited and massively degraded the environment of occupied Tibet. From concerns about Huawei to open hostility towards mining companies which are opening up Tibetan mountains the CTA has a respected and established record of challenging and reporting upon the genuine concerns posed by China’s political, economic and corporate objectives.

From glamorizing secret agents in his Bond films to partnering the Chinese regime and romanticizing the supposed benefits of China’s political and economic global hegemony

With that in mind the decision of its website to give such full-page prominence to ‘Common Destiny’ (a film receiving the approval and support of China’s regime) and heavily promoted by the propaganda mouth-piece Xinhua during it’s screening at the Venice Film Festival in September, is all the more baffling.

The editors of the CTA site have copied and pasted a review written by Tom Baxter, formerly working in communications at Greenpeace East Asia,  the environmental campaigning organization with offices in China that’s offered not a word of opposition or critique on the nuclear poisoning of occupied Tibet and East Turkistan. Does that explain the ‘softly-softly’ content of the author? He seems to broadly follow the official narrative issued by the film makers, a story of individual lives seemingly transformed by the controversial development project run by China’s regime. The series of inspiring personal stories from differing countries where the project operates, while no doubt uplifting serve another and darker purpose. Did such an objective, we speculate, concern New Zealand Director Martin Campbell, British screen-writer Guy Hibbert or the American director of photography? Perhaps they were too consumed by the allure of assembling of people centered accounts of hopes and dreams? Uncaring that these tales of realization come with a troubling economic and environmental cost. A fact well known to those countries signed into a developmental program of Chinese economic hegemony

But this ‘documentary’ was never going to consider such contexts, the crippling debts, failed infrastructure projects or the political and economic dominance imposed upon those partnering governments by China’s regime. No inclusion or reference to the environmental impacts of such developments. Those major issues had no place in this carefully engineered propaganda, the audience is engaged with the various personal narratives, distracted by the emotion, struggle and relative triumphs. A strategy which no doubt was factored into the film from its beginnings and obediently employed by six other (Chinese) directors all of whom were approved by China’s government! The production company behind this exercise in disinformation was none other than Beijing Silk Road Media Group, a public-relations arm of the project and by extension fully committed to the ideology and dictates of China’s regime. Interestingly its producer Liang Yan claimed at the screening that the film is not backed by government, anyone buying into that should seek reality counseling immediately!

There is no genuinely independent film-making within China especially when the subject is a cornerstone of the Chinese regime’s global economic policy. As such there would have been a very close scrutiny of its production. content and promotion, what has been produced is yet another slick, emotion focused distraction that promotes the supposed triumphs of the Belt Road Strategy. It also features key propaganda themes exemplified by the account of a Uyghur boy dreaming of winning a basketball scholarship. Touching story, right? But wait a minute while young Yusuf Jiang (note the Chinese second name) is aspiring to realize such ambitions Uyghur children of all ages are being torn from their families and detained within indoctrination centers to be brainwashed into obedient Chinese speaking citizens. Did that well-documented reality not trouble Martin Campbell or Guy Hibbert? Would not their creative talents not be better served by making a documentary on the cultural genocide waged against Tibet or the Uyghur homeland of East Turkistan?

What also of the Central Tibetan Administration and its promotion of this Chinese orchestrated disinformation? Was it some gross error of editorial judgement that decided to feature this film on their site? A calculated decision to curry favor with China, a signal of further appeasement? No matter the reasons, giving publicity to such propaganda while the same regime behind the film is waging a genocidal assault against Tibet’s culture and national identity raises worrying questions. Particularly for any Tibetan who expects their exiled Administration to be championing the just cause of national freedom rather than uncritically disseminating the lies and disinformation of China’s government!

Anonymous’ Million Mask March Asked To Remember Tibet And Plight Of Uyghur Children

Our crew over on Twitter has today been sent a video statement from the Anonymous project called ‘Operation Tibet’.  It calls upon those taking part in the global Million Mask March on November 5 to remember Tibet and also highlights China’s disturbing policy of forcing Uyghur children from their families and detaining them in brainwashing centers. Many thanks to @tibettruth and @AnonymousTibet @Project_Tibet for news on this.
