Chinese officials describe the camps as voluntary "vocational education centers" where Turkic-speaking Uighurs receive job training.

Right. 'Brave New World' speak. That many people in China, Russia and elsewhere who've long lived under authoritarian rule are willing to accept dictatorial powers and allow themselves to be controlled by the state is perhaps understandable. Cultural DNA?

I understand there are also 'westerners' who favor authoritarian rule, but just hope they remain the minority.

Xinjiang is a remote, resource-rich region

There it is. The CCP care nothing about the people who've long lived in the area, only about the resources that can be exploited. For the benefit of CCP nabobs and their backers.

They call their system 'Communism', but it's just another variation of predatory capitalism. The .01% get richer, the rest get trickled down on.

Watched a BBC News extended report on the Uighur situation. Hundreds of thousands put into so called "re-educaton camps". Mosques demolished. Homes and communities demolished. Breads banned. They really want to wipe them out.

Even one Chinese official stated they knew which Uighur's would commit murder, they can tell from their eyes, so better to put them in prison to prevent that from happening.

Crazy but tragic.

Crazy but tragic.

Not as crazy as it seems though, the CCP has committed genocide before to their own ethnic Chinese, they probably see it as a continuation of their on going agenda.

The large scale organ harvesting (murdering prisoners to sell their internal organs) pretty much is all one needs to know about the indecency of Chinese leaders.

The CCP is called "vocational education centers" but it is actually a camp called a reeducation camp. The people detained here have been transferred to prisons along the coast of China. In the vicinity of the prison there is an organ transplant center. Organ transplant applicants from Arab countries want donors who do not eat pork for their faith. The purpose is to obtain the "Halar organ(Organs of people who are not eating pork)". Unfortunately, CCP is the biggest demon of this century.

This issue definitely needs a world-wide protest to China, and now, with the US/China trade dispute hitting headlines, would be a good time to make it.

PTownsend. Interesting concept of culture DNA. Mao killed over 60 million people who would rejected the communist dictatorial rule. Maybe he was able to alter Chinese dna by the mass death. Not only the the Chinese people been under rule of some faction for thousands of years.

Reports are reaching the west that the Chinese authorities have separated many tens of thousands of children from their Uighur parents.
