The Chinese government denies the Uighur abuse despite controversial images of forced transfers

The Chinese government has denied that the country is abusing the Uyghur minority in the Xinjiang region, despite the fact that a video was released this week that was secretly recorded with a “drone” and reviewed by international security agencies, forcing a transfer of hundreds of Uighurs.

Since 2016, up to one million members of this community and other Muslim minorities have been held in suspected concentration camps, which the Chinese Communist Party calls “Vocational Training Centers” or “re-education institutions,” but according to international NGOs, they are concentration camps as part of an ethnic cleansing operation.

Last year’s pictures show hundreds of Uighurs kneeling, handcuffed, and shaved heads as they are put on a train.

The video, which was anonymously posted on YouTube by War on Fear last week, has been authenticated in statements to ABC by Nathan Ruser, an analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.
