Full article: Falun Gong

On 20 July, 1999, around 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners gathered near the central government compound in Beijing to request legal recognition and protection by the Chinese government. The government's response was to declare the religion illegal, and carry out a mass arrests of the 'leaders'. A 2008 UN report suggested that tens of thousands of Falun gong members had been the victims of organ harvesting.[6] As of 2019, illegal detention, torture, murder and organ harvesting of Falun Gong adherents was still ongoing. A tribunal chaired by Geoffrey Nice in London suggested a conservative estimate is that 60,000-90,000 transplant operations were conducted each year.[7]

"Strike Hard Campaign"“The Strike Hard Campaign has shown complete disregard for the rights of Turkic Muslims to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. In Xinjiang, authorities have created a system that considers individuals suspicious based on broad and dubious criteria, and then generates lists of people to be evaluated by officials for detention. Official documents state that individuals “who ought to be taken, should be taken,” suggesting the goal is to maximize the number of people they find “untrustworthy” in detention. Such people are then subjected to police interrogation without basic procedural protections. They have no right to legal counsel, and some are subjected to torture and mistreatment, for which they have no effective redress, as we have documented in our September 2018 report. The result is Chinese authorities, bolstered by technology, arbitrarily and indefinitely detaining Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang en masse for actions and behavior that are not crimes under Chinese law.”1 May 2019
Bernard Montgomery“The next war on land will be very different from the last one, in that we shall have to fight it in a different way. In reaching a decision on that matter, we must first be clear about certain rules of war. Rule 1, on page I of the book of war, is: "Do not march on Moscow". Various people have tried it, Napoleon and Hitler, and it is no good. That is the first rule. I do not know whether your Lordships will know Rule 2 of war. It is: "Do not go fighting with your land armies in China". It is a vast country, with no clearly defined objectives, and an army fighting there would be engulfed by what is known as the Ming Bing, the people's insurgents.”Bernard Montgomery30 May 1962
Racism“Chinese authorities, bolstered by technology, arbitrarily and indefinitely detaining Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang en masse for actions and behavior that are not crimes under Chinese law. And yet Chinese authorities continue to make wildly inaccurate claims that their “sophisticated” systems are keeping Xinjiang safe by “targeting” terrorists “with precision.””1 May 2019
