 China’s lies about abuse of Uyghurs, and sends threat !

08.04.21.  Yesterday, in a press conference in the Chinese Embassy in Canberra, Chinese Ambassador Cheng Jingye said in so many words, that if Australia mentioned China’s disgusting treatment of the Uighurs that violates all creeds of humanity, China would respond in kind—a threat. How dare that arrogant little turd, being in Australia but sitting inside the protection of the embassy, make threats against the host country. If Australia had a leader worth sixpence, that rude bastard would be immediately carpeted and yold to pack his gear and piss off back to Beijing. But we don’t have a leader that will support national pride and show the world, which is watching closely China’s bastardry. China must learn that Australia, a small country, will not be insulted and threatened by international bullies! Mr Morrison, get off your arse and stand up for Australia, make us feel proud, or just go!
The Chinese government has held an extraordinary press conference in Canberra, trotting out members of a Muslim ethnic minority to deny they had been persecuted by the communist nation. The Chinese embassy in Canberra invited Australian journalists to the meeting on Wednesday to defend Beijing’s human rights record in Xinjiang Province, where human rights groups believe more than a million Muslim Uyghurs have been sent to internment camps.

China denies abuse of Uyghurs in bizarre press conference

But in a surreal press conference, Chinese ambassador Cheng Jingye insisted Uighurs were not subjected to oppression in Xinjiang.
China’s ambassador to Australia, Cheng Jingye, said the point of the press conference was to combat “disinformation” about Xinjiang and the Uighurs.
“Over some time, there has been quite some distorted coverage about Xinjiang in certain Western media,” Mr Cheng said.
“Those reports are basically based on disinformation or misinformation.
“Today’s press conference is to help you Australian journalists to have a better understanding of the actual situation in Xinjiang.”
Journalists were shown a six-minute propaganda video – entitled “Xinjiang is a Wonderful Land” – depicting the region as one of “economic development, social stability, livelihood improvement and religious harmony”.
The video suggested the Communist Party of China had “transformed” Xinjiang “into a land of life, a land of thriving vitality”.
China has long insisted the camps are designed to quell a growing separatist movement in the region, driven by the Uighur population.
The video claimed 56 ethnic groups had “worked together to develop a vast magnificent part of the motherland”.
“The Chinese government has placed high on its agenda the inheritance, protection and development of the excellent traditional ethnic cultures of Xinjiang,” it said.
Liberal senator Eric Abetz, a long-term critic of Beijing, blasted the embassy’s move.
“This video is a sickening display of propaganda that attempts to dismiss the egregious human rights abuses occurring in Xinjiang against the Uighur people,” he said.
“Though the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) tries to hide and obfuscate information from Xinjiang and the human rights abuses committed there, increasing evidence reveals the CCP’s intention to commit genocide against the Uyghur people.”
Mr Abetz said the truth of what was under way in Xinjiang was “slowly revealing itself”, with various international reports emerging depicting “ample evidence” of human rights abuses.
Australian Uighur Tangritagh Women’s Association president Ramila Chanisheff said the number of people to had passed through the camps could range between 5 and 8 million, with more than 380 sites across Xinjiang.
She said the press conference was a sign of “desperation” from Beijing, which was “very much afraid” of the growing international scrutiny about the province.
“I think what we can see is that they’re desperate, they’re trying every way to cover up the reality of the actual statistics and the pure evidence that’s coming out of Xinjiang,” she told Sky News.
“The world is realising what’s happening out there, they’re seeing it for what it is. I think China is very much afraid at the moment.”
Ms Chanisheff said China’s economic and international influence meant it would likely become more vocal as it defended its record in Xinjiang.
Canada’s parliament in February declared a genocide was under way in the region, while UK foreign secretary Dominic Raab accused China of a “highly disturbing program of oppression” last month.
“This is one of the worst human rights crises of our time and I believe the evidence is clear, as it is sobering,” he said.
Despite deteriorating relations between Canberra and Beijing over the past year, Australia has so far resisted following suit.
Foreign Minister Marise Payne last month indicated Australia would not declare a genocide in Xinjiang.
“We have a slightly different approach to that turn of phrase, and I don’t mean this in a pedantic or semantic way,” she said.
But Ms Payne called on China to allow the UN high commissioner for human rights to have access to the region.
In September, more than 300 civil society groups from more than 60 countries urged the United Nations to create an independent mechanism to address Beijing’s human rights violations.
“China’s disdain for human rights no longer affects only its citizens – its support for dictators and efforts to rewrite international standards are making the work of defending human rights harder than ever,” Sarah Brooks of the International Service for Human Rights said.

    That bloke is really a grubby grotty jumped up real ARSEHOLE and how you say he should be called in and carpeted and then expelled ASAP is right!!

    Leaving him be just shows real weakness by our leaders as well as extreme forlock tugging by us.

    Last night of Sky there were examples given of some very poor nations (who by the way could “benefit” by China’s BRI) that were jacking up quite forcefully against what China wants of them; They have woken up and are doing the right thing for their people even though they will suffer financially but they still have their dignity and pride intact; Good on them!!!!!

    Why cannot Australia aspire to be like them??? Is it our real greed and our want, want and want some more? Or is it that our leaders (all sides) are far too gutless to act??

    China is doing all it can to alienate it from most of the rest of the world and that shows just how stupid they are now.

      When I put; Or is it that our leaders (all sides) are far too gutless to act??; I should have added stupid and foolish as well.

      Maybe it could that our mob are hoping and waiting and hoping and waiting for China to implode; The wait will be long, too long!

        “Xinjiang is a Wonderful Land”.
        Even Goebbels would not use a title so manifestly amateurish, so indicative of what the chinese think of every other race. Its also totally indicative of their intelligence.

    And just yesterday I read where Aussies are queuing up to buy these cheap Chinese cars. Time to slap a “Chinese Wine Tax” on these vehicles and align them to the plagerised ones they stole. Wake up you foolish Aussies!

      Totally agree PW. I think I mentioned that every time I see a chinese car I feel like cocking a leg on it and it,s owner and would except the effects of age and gender make it largely a token exercise.

    I admit to being ambivalent about the Uyghur stories. Until recently I’d never heard of this group of Islamists.
    Then suddenly they’re the darling of of the human rights industry. Since when have ‘human rights groups’ or the media been trustworthy sources of facts? They lost credibility a long time ago.
    There is probably some sort of foul play going on, but I’m not really sure why it is supposed to be such a big deal for Australia, that we would hang our relations with China on the coat rack over it.
    Meanwhile, Christians remain by far the most persecuted group in the world. Why aren’t we having a stoush with China over their much more insidious persecution of Christians? Why isn’t the government being called on to ‘make Australia proud’ in openly denouncing the far greater evil of global Christian persecution?
    Frankly this whole Uyghur media wrangle seems totally lame and hollow, and it is further damaging our already very sensitive relationship with China without sufficient cause. China will ultimately win that fight. The only reason we survive is because we sell our resources and real estate to them, rather than leveraging our assets to our own advantage. It’s not as if we can stand on our feet and provide for ourselves anymore.

      Should that read Whine Tax? That’s all we can really do! The CCP couldn’t give a stuff about Australia and or Australians! We can’t Tax ourselves to a clear conscience in a tit-for-tat penalty on Chinese made anything. Only Australian consumers can. Even then I doubt the CCP would worry about what the population, the equivalent of a small Chinese town, think about their internal affairs. Now, if we started to use our own coal and iron ore that meant there was less for export, it might be different. Sadly, The CCP knows that will not happen in this millennium!

      Christianity is the fastest growing religion in China.
