Chinas Umerziehungslager für Uighuren Moslems

October 25, 2018 -
China wird vorgeworfen, dass es bis zu einer Million ethnischer Moslems in seiner westlichen Xinjiang Region eingesperrt hat. Laut
Regierung soll es sich "berufsbildende Schulen" für Personen handeln, die vom Extremismus beeinflusst sind.

AFP journalists who reviewed more than 1,500 publicly available government documents describe the centres as being run more like jails than schools.

Thousands of guards equipped with tear gas, stun guns and spiked clubs keep tight control over “students”, who are held in facilities ringed with razor wire and infrared cameras, according to the documents.

The descriptions are a far cry from Chinese government propaganda that claims the facilities in Xinjiang, where most of China’s ethnic Uighur and other Muslim minorities live, provide “free” education and job training to counter the spread of separatism, terrorism and religious extremism.
