One of the reason no one is speaking up about this is because no one wants to start a war with China a country who is Rich and powerful and has nukes. Unless they directly attack their own country leaders are not going to do anything. The US and others only joined ww2 when they were threatened.

You tell lies ! You have never been to Xingjiang you know nothing about how Uyhgurs are treated in China. I'm a Chinese I dont like the dictatorship of ccp, but you are lying about Uyghurs ! Human rights ? If there's no human rights there's no human right for all people under the ccp's regime, but the CCP treats uyghurs even better than Han chinese. Have you heared about innocent people killed by Uyghurs with islamic extremism ? Normal Uyghurs are live well in China! You liar !

In a previous video you adviced to double check the sources. Uigours belong to Altaic people like Hungarians, Turks and others. In the communist China all religions were banned for decades, even the Confucianism. So Uigours were one more of the rest minorities inside China. That changed when Turkey claimed that its the protector of all Muslims and started to sent weapons to Uigours and trained many of them to rebel. The issue is more complicated that looks. In western hemisphere people ignore history and make hasty conclusions. That have been proved in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and many places as well.

Maybe they whine because, to many people, the U.S. don't offer a first-world experience, especially these days. Turning attention away from domestic policy failings and rising inequality fits the pattern we've seen all to often.

Hi Oliver, where is the linkage of the censored TV program in China? It seems that it is "Father, where do we go", but I searched "Father, where do we go+ Uighurs" and "China, TV censored, Uighurs" and many words like this in Chinese and English, I did not see any kind of this resource. According to my watch experience of this program and other Chinese programs, it seems impossible to ban this kind of image. Uighurs with covers the image is always reported in our TV, I strongly doubt your authenticity, which I think is the basic principle for a political programme like this. If you are a really responsible TV program, please post the linkage to make it reliable.

Do you know who banned uighurs from getting a US travel visa? Dam right, the US government. The uighurs are on the black list of U.S. Embassy.

I've been waiting for this. As a muslim myself, I am appalled and ashamed that none of the Islamic run countries have done anything, even suppressed news of the issue. Granted, some of them are in pretty dire straits themselves, but still...

Until you do a piece on the growing anti-white racism in America, for examples look at the Black Response to Nick Cannon saying white people are literal animals, you are a paper tiger as far as I'm concerned.

One more piece of missing information, maybe ignorant and maybe intentional: there are quite a few other minority groups in Xinjiang. Considering the U.S. handling of Iraq, Uighurs will just become the next dictator/oppression if they come into power. Of course, the U.S. won't care at that point as long as it's the U.S. sponsored.

As a Chinese natinality, I've always been awear of these kind of persecution taken by the ruling CPC, but we do not have the actual right to fight against the fucking system! We do not even have the chance to take to the street peacefully, although we are entitled to the right of free speech and protesting as it says in the stupid fake constitution! To put it simply, we are just another version of North Korea, only that we have more food and more crowded mega cities filled with low income workers from the suburb serving the fucking rich. CPC's tactic had always been this----denying the fact that there is massive human rights abuse under it's rule, therefore it doesn't need to address the problem, because they just don't have the ball to admit all of it. sooo pathetic! Also, most Chinese living in the mainland have been successfully brainwashed, and they do not give a damn about what's happening to ethnic groups like the Uighur people! All they care about is money and more money…… feeling so helpless whenever I think about all these shit happenning in here.

Thank God this has been brought up, I've been following this for years now and it felt like no one was paying attention. Anyone interested should watch Andrew Marr confronting the Chinese ambassador to the UK about it on BBC, it's honestly disgusting what's been happening
