人家有证据说中国这种做法是crimes against humanity，
你不让人家看，人家就开始说 possibly genocide—are occurring
CONGRESSIONAL-EXECUTIVE COMMISSION ON CHINA ANNUAL REPORT
ONE HUNDRED SIXTEENTH CONGRESS SECOND SESSION
Over the last year, the Congressional-Executive Commission on China (Commission) found that the Chinese government and Com-munist Party have taken unprecedented steps to extend their re-pressive policies through censorship, intimidation, and the deten-tion of people in China for exercising their fundamental human rights. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) where new evidence emerged that crimes against humanity—and possibly genocide—are occurring, and in Hong Kong, where the ‘‘one country, two systems’’ frame-work has been effectively dismantled
These policies are in direct violation of China’s Constitution, which guarantees ‘‘freedom of speech, of the press, of assembly, of association, of procession and of demonstration,’’ as well as ‘‘free-dom of religious belief.’’ The actions of the Chinese government also contravene both the letter and the spirit of the Universal Declara-tion of Human Rights; violate its obligations under the Inter-national Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which the Chinese government has signed but not ratified; and violate the Inter-national Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights, rati-fied in 2001. Further, the Chinese government has abandoned any pretense of adhering to the legally binding commitments it made to the international community when it signed the 1984 Sino-Brit-ish Joint Declaration on the future of Hong Kong. President and Party General Secretary Xi Jinping has tightened his grip over China’s one-party authoritarian system, and the Party has further absorbed key government functions while also enhanc-ing its control over universities and businesses. Authorities pro-moted the official ideology of ‘‘Xi Jinping Thought’’ on social media and required Party members, government officials, journalists, and students to study it, making the ideology both pervasive, and for much of the country, mandatory.
in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR), it is now estimated that up to 1.8 million Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, Hui, and others have been arbitrarily detained in a system of extrajudicial mass internment camps where they are subjected to forced labor, torture, and political indoctrination.
In the last year, leaked Chinese government documents provided additional evi-dence that the mass internment camp system was organized at the direction of top Party officials and confirmed the prevalence of the use of coercive force and punishment for inmates. Forced labor in the XUAR is widespread and systematic and ex-ists within the mass internment camps and elsewhere throughout the region, as part of a targeted campaign of repression against Turkic and Muslim minorities.
These facts are confirmed by the testimony of former camp detainees, satellite imagery, media re-ports, and leaked government documents. Many U.S., inter-national, and Chinese companies are increasingly at risk of com-plicity in the exploitation of forced labor involving Uyghurs and other predominantly Muslim minorities.
In last year’s annual report, the Commission stated that the situ-ation in the XUAR may constitute crimes against humanity as out-lined in Article 7(1) of the Rome Statute of the International Crimi-nal Court. In March 2020, the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Preven-tion of Genocide at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum stated that there is a ‘‘reasonable basis to believe the government of China is committing crimes against humanity’’ in the XUAR.
Disturbing new evidence has also emerged of a systematic and widespread policy of forced sterilization and birth suppression of the Uyghur and other minority populations.
Further, an official XUAR policy document from 2017 stated that nearly half a million middle and elementary school-age children in the XUAR were at-tending boarding schools, many of whom were involuntarily sepa-rated from their families. These trends suggest that the Chinese government is intentionally working to destroy Uyghur and other minority families, culture, and religious adherence, all of which should be considered when determining whether the Chinese gov-ernment is responsible for perpetrating atrocity crimes—including genocide—against Uyghurs, Kazakhs, and other Turkic and pre-dominantly Muslim ethnic minorities in China.
