China Accused of Forcing Thousands of Tibetans into Mass Labor Camps

HeadlineSep 24, 2020

Chinese authorities have continued to construct mass internment camps for Muslim minority groups even as China’s government claimed they were winding down their so-called reeducation system. That’s according to a new report by an Australian think tank, citing satellite images showing the construction of dozens of new camps in Xinjiang province over the past two years. Over 1 million ethnic Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities are believed to be imprisoned in the camps, with countless children separated from their families.

Meanwhile, Reuters reports China is pushing Tibetan rural laborers off their land and into military-style training centers where they are turned into factory workers, in a program similar to Xinjiang’s internment camps.
