Here is China proving once again what kind of country they really are. It's amazing what they think that they can get away with.

Those facilities were campus and classroom for those uighur people to learn law and order of Chinese society! They need a lesson of how to behave in a civilize nation!

From behaviors I've seen, the Uighur people should be the ones teaching the Han Chinese how to behave in a civilized manner before the world.

China has faced growing international opprobrium for setting up facilities that United Nations experts describe as detention centers

Why do Japan and Europe and the USA still deal with this cesspool of torture and filth?

You can add Australia to that list. The Australian economy is so dependent on continuing to export raw materials (including coal) to China that the current Government is extremely reluctant to say or do anything that might upset the relationship, and the money flow. I suspect the same applies world wide, more or less.

So I reckon the answer to the question is partly because China is too desirable as a customer. Wouldn't want to push them too far, would we? They might take their business elsewhere.

Meanwhile, the UN has said that up to 1 million Uighurs may be being held in detention in China's camps.

Typical of Communists to persecute people simply due to their race and religionand call them "terrorist". These are innocent Islam people and citizens. There is no freedom at all in communist China. Why don't more nations impose trade sanctions on them .

Money. Australia is a good example. You should know that there is discussion in your home country on the reliance of the Australian economy on China.

The CCP at its best... Destroy freedom and enslave the state to serve a few big-wigs. Why do Japan and Europe and the USA still deal with this cesspool of torture and filth?

Well lets just stop pussyfooting around and call it for what it is...ethnic cleansing. And why are other world leaders not calling it the same. History has a way of repeating itself.

Given the electronic surveillance the Chinese have set up which includes facial recognition, the government is attempting to track the movements of every Uighur in the province of Xinjiang. The entire province has become a 21st century prison camp, with concentration camps essentially being used as high security lockdowns inside a grotesque, immense medium security prison.

The scale of this has never been attempted before in the history of mankind, even in occupied territories during wartime. If the Chinese believe they have succeeded in controlling the Uighur and erasing their culture because of the potential risk that they might resist being dominated by ethnic Han Chinese and the CCP, Xi will apply this technology elsewhere in China and certainly elsewhere in territories drawn under Chinese control via the Belt and Road master plan.

But it will be the adoption of Chinese methods by other authoritarian regimes around the world that will truly take us into a dystopian future. This is the single greatest threat to freedom and democracy in the history of the world.

If China's Belt and Road succeeds and its global reach expands, look for more 'terrorists' to be arrested. Worrying that so many 'westerners' advocate for a 'strong' leader pushing some variation of totalitarianism like China, Turkey, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and other sates have.

Applause to the CCP's Special Highly Noble Counter Terrorism (SPHINCTer) team for securing Xinjiang against the bad guys.

Of the explosive devices, the SPHINCTer team said water filled ballons can have devastating impact on citizens, and mongst those dangerous criminals arrested included those who were dangerously praying in mosques, some of whom also were in possession of highly un-noble and dangerous material on where to obtain halal food.

A number of detainee were dangerously putting themselves and others at risk by walking out their front door.

SPHINCTer also advises people of Xinjiang to be especially careful and be on the lookout for women wearing burkas, as they could be lady boys from Thailand.
