PRC renaming Uyghur streets’ indigenous names in Central Asian with Ch Comm Party buzzwords and kitschy clichés: Victory, Harmony, Red Star; Peach Blossom, Forever Fortune, Beautiful Garden. Names better suited for bad Chinese restaurants in an American strip mall.

«There are some places where moral outrage should triumph materialism. Instead of saying, “Yes, they violated human rights, but … ,” sometimes we just need to say “They violated human rights.” Egregiously. Appallingly. Full stop.»

China's suppression of Muslims now meets the UN definition of genocide. I unequivocally condemn this state-sponsored cruelty. The Trump administration must urgently do much more to hold China accountable.

I’ve known most of my life, and every bit of writing I read from her makes me wish we could hang out as adults. For all the ways the internet fills me with despair, it also offers me lovely chances to follow and marvel at the lives of old schoolmates. Please read.

Because Zenz uses mounds of evidence from the Chinese state's own documents and web sites, their attacks on him are exclusively 1) threats and 2) claims about his character or motivation. But the evidence that Zenz has brought to light cannot be made to disappear.

Today's decision to sanction prominent officials for their actions against ethnic minorities in Xinjiang is an important step towards justice for the people. The United States remains committed to holding the accountable for gross violations of human rights.

Breaking: Beijing threatens to sue me for libel (slander). An unprecedented threat against a foreign academic. Also likely designed to intimidate media outlets & others re collaborating with me, or doing similar research. Attempt to isolate myself (and ASPI).

Again, China is trying to silence those outside of their boundaries. It's one thing to try to silence their own academics. It's another to silence academics who live in free democratic countries and have freedom of speech. Most importantly, they look at the facts and speak up.

Before and after pics of a Uyghur sacred historical site, Imam Asim, desecrated by China's authorities. Thread on what it means for Uyghur culture to be destroyed, using photos of what has been lost in the banning of the shrine festival at Imam Asim.

Just added to Pocket and am excited to read. Re: no human monopoly on culture, I always love talking to my friends who do plant studies (plants as sentient beings — have friends in HCI/informatics who do this). So much surprise and delight there.
