Los campos de reeducación de China para musulmanes uigures
October 25, 2018 - Se acusa a China de detener a cerca de un millón de musulmanes de la etnia uigur en su región occidental de Xinjiang. El gobierno dice que las estructuras parecidas a prisiones son “escuelas vocacionales” para educar a personas influidas por el extremismo
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.
