(Washington, D.C.—Oct. 23, 2019) Today, ChinaAid helped organize an event highlighting the persecution of ethnic minority groups in China, held in Washington, D.C.
ChinaAid Chairman of the Board Doug Robison joined two other human rights experts to speak on China’s treatment of people groups in Xinjiang.
For years now, China has been mass imprisoning minority people living in the region. Behind bars, they are starved until they pledge allegiance to the Communist Party and tortured. Many of the arrested are Muslim, and China claims that their actions curb terrorism.
However, the inmates are often arrested just for adhering to a halal diet or traveling abroad. Additionally, China has also arrested Uyghur Christians in the area.
The United Nations estimated 1 million ethnic minority people have been arbitrarily imprisoned in this way.
“There is no discrimination in persecution in Xinjiang,” Robison said.
