Organs Seized From Uyghurs


"A "high" number of Uyghurs, including youngsters seized by security forces following ethnic unrest in China's Xinjiang region, may have become victims of forced organ harvesting, according to an independent researcher.

Ethan Gutmann said that the forced disappearance of hundreds of Uyghur men and boys following the 2009 ethnic riots in Xinjiang's capital Urumqi "should be of great concern to the world no matter what else may be occurring."

"But I suspect it goes further than that," Gutmann, an expert at the Washington-based Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told RFA's Uyghur Service when asked about the possibility that many ordinary Uyghurs, apart from political prisoners, would have been victims of forced organ harvesting."

Prague mayor: Why we fly the Tibetan flag over City Hall


His advice is wrong though - they SHOULD severe economic ties with China.

"The reason for Beijing's decision to rescind the invitations was clear. Since I was elected mayor of the Czech capital in 2018, I have worked to fulfill a promise to voters. I vowed during the campaign that I would return to our hallowed post-communist traditions of honoring democracy and human rights. By delivering on that promise, I and my government have prompted the ire of the Chinese Communist Party.

We have chosen to adorn our city hall with the Tibetan flag — which should not bother China at all, considering that its 1951 agreement with the Tibetan government grants the territory a broad degree of autonomy. Being a doctor, I have also publicly condemned the forced extraction of organs from members of the Muslim Uighur minority and other prisoners of the regime."

Mr. Smith Goes to the Mat in Washington



"...he's never seen anything like what's happening in China. "[There hasn't been] this kind of mass internment of millions since the Holocaust. Torture, rape, sexual abuse, forced abortions of women being held in the [concentration] camps." It has to stop. And he and the rest of the Congressional-Executive Commission on China won't quit until it does."

Just think if the USA had been in the economic bed with the USSR like they are with China.  Things would be vastly different in the world today - and NOT for the better.

Sources say China used iPhone hacks to target Uyghur Muslims | TechCrunch


Turns out this wasn't ONLY for iPhones, but android and others as well - headlines must feature Apple though.  Anyway, just MORE Chinese crackdowns on their own people.

Huawei staff and Chinese military have deep links, study claims


A new analysis of CVs of Huawei staff appeared to reveal deeper links between the technology giant and China's military and intelligence bodies than had been previously acknowledged by the firm.

The paper, which looks at employment records of Huawei employees, concluded that "key mid-level technical personnel employed by Huawei have strong backgrounds in work closely associated with intelligence gathering and military activities." Some employees can be linked "to specific instances of hacking or industrial espionage conducted against Western firms," it claimed.

Hollywood to China: You Can Be My Wingman Anytime



No one but the die-hard fans might have noticed it, but in the new Paramount Pictures trailer for Top Gun: Maverick, Tom Cruise's character is wearing the same bomber jacket, but without the flags of Taiwan or Japan on the patch for "Far East Cruise 63-4, USS Galveston." It's a small change, experts say, but it makes a huge statement about China's growing influence over U.S. filmmakers. Like a lot of new productions, the Top Gun sequel is partly produced by a Chinese distributor, meaning that the regime's censors would have had tremendous veto power over the film's content -- right down to the actors' wardrobes.
