The situation going on in China is heartbreaking.
Since the ending months of 2019, the Chinese government has forced a certain group to the outskirts of its society. They have singled out the Muslim population in the whole country and put them in internment camps.
The camps have been found due to some of the victims being held escaping and gaining access to the internet and contacting someone, you can also clearly see the detention sites on satellites, and some people who see the camps say the victims are being used for forced labor.
“Beijing insists there are no human rights abuses in Xinjiang. Chinese authorities initially denied the existence of internment camps, then later described them as vocational training and re-education programs that aim to alleviate poverty and counterterrorism threats.”
Re-education? What are they planning on teaching only a specific group? That eating pork is okay? Even though it’s against their religion, or that they don’t have to wear all these clothes to hide their body except for their faces. Either way, these acts are inhuman and should not be allowed to continue.
The Chinese government is attacking the Muslim population in its country just because they don’t agree with their religious beliefs, which goes against human rights. They have even gone as far as coercive birth control along with intense abuse, what the Chinese government is doing to this certain group of people cannot be allowed to continue, they are even denying the fact that they have people in camps and attempting to “re-educate” them because they don’t do certain things that others do.
We all should come together and speak out against China’s acts as it’s inhumane and should never happen again especially after history has taught us the events that can happen when such things are allowed to continue. Although we may not be of the same religion I still see them as another person and just because they have certain beliefs they shouldn’t be treated that way, I pray that what is happening down there may come to a stop soon, and hopefully the world can wake up soon and realize what is going on.

Nearly 200 people died during a series of violent riots that broke out on July 5, 2009 over several days in Urumqi, the capital city of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, in northwestern China, between Uyghurs and Han people. / AFP PHOTO / OZAN KOSEOZAN KOSE/AFP/Getty ImagesTags: china Judge Memorial Catholic High School
