Wired and CodaStory Provide A Deeper Dive Into China’s Massive Surveillance Operation
For the last few years there have been indications that China has been conducting mass incarcerations of its Muslim minorities. Investigative reporting is beginning to shed more light on what is going on. There appears to be abuses of human rights on a shocking scale.
The personal stories behind abuses in a closed society can be hard to find. Fortunately investigative reporters in open societies have found ways to dig deeper.
From recent Codastory.com reporting:
Xinjiang, northwest China, is in a state of surveillance lockdown. One million ethnic Uyghurs are now in concentration camps. Every message, word and movement is monitored for its extremist potential. But in Istanbul, 3000 miles away, a community of Uyghur women who have escaped a life of repression are fighting back – via smartphone.
