    China has been quietly detaining its population of Uighurs, the country’s Muslim minority, in internment camps. First-hand accounts from inside the camps paint a brutal picture of torture and political indoctrination. At first, China denied the existence of these camps and tried to cover them up. But as a network of academics and activists uncovered evidence of the camps' locations, and the reality of what’s going on inside, China changed its story.

      Funny it mentioned Uyghurs have tried to establish independent country twice in the last century, first time for one year, and second time for 5 years. Anybody wonder which country they are part of before, between and after? 268 years of Qing dynasty, 37 years of Republic of China and 70 years of People's Republic of China is a joke to you or what?

                        First of all I'm not from the USA and I don't support the USA. Second, the only country I know which forces people to love it by putting them in camps is China. Maybe North Korea. If you think that's okay then imagine the same happening to your family.

                              I'm chinese i cant tell if it's true. I live in shanghai, but i do have many uighur friends around the campus. They simply couldnt believe this video becuz they call their family living in Xinjiang everyday and they know nothing about it. I also looked up one of the detainees and i found her in many pieces of news that involve the East Turkestan Republican Party, which is striving for the establishment of an independent, self-governed East Turkestan Republic. If that is not separatist, i dont know what is.
