Rights groups claim many of them have suffered from crimes against humanity by the Chinese government. A British tribunal found China guilty of “genocide against Uyghurs.” Over 1 million Uyghurs are held in Chinese reeducation camps. Many have also reported being abused sexually. You can even force sterilization.

Ziyawudun said that she spent eleven months in jail without any specific reason. Ziyawudun claims that during this time she was sexually assaulted, and even tortured.

Officials of the Communist Party have said that their treatment towards the Uyghurs was due to fighting terrorism. The region was the victim of multiple terrorist attacks in 2008 linked to East Turkestan independence movement. This faction is part Uyghur community and wants Xinjiang seperated from China and for it to become its own nation.

Capitalism Diversity is important and citizens should be able to thrive as individuals. This is the antithesis to coercion, uniformity.This freedom is why the U.S. was home to many of the most successful businesses in the world. Think Apple and Microsoft as well as Walmart and Tesla. China has banned Facebook. 

China attempts to imitate its 1.37billion people by imposing a single identity, culture and language, while removing all that is not. When command and control societies seek to impose uniformity—from the policies of Mao to those of Lenin and Stalin—those societies inevitably abuse human rights in the process.

The U.S. condemned Uyghur mistreatment and officials of government are refusing to recognize it. China Olympics protested by America The Uyghur refugee population has received zero new refugees over the past 2 years. The U.S. has avoided becoming monoculture by welcoming foreigners such as Ziyawudun. Our diversity in thought and experience has been the key to American capitalism’s success. China’s efforts to eradicate Uyghur culture in its pursuit of global supremacy and its efforts at torture, detention, and surveil Uyghurs isn’t morally acceptable.
