America can effectively push back on human rights abuses in China through tougher border enforcement, stronger sanctions, and a major diplomatic push.
Thank you for this great post! Do you have any suggestions for a typical American looking to push their government in the directions you describe?
- Should I tweet at celebrities demanding they take a strong stance on Xinjiang?
- Should I call my congresspeople and tell them to push for tougher sanctions on Xinjiang and increase CBP funding?
- Should I demonstrate in front of the White House and demand that the executive instruct the CBP to issue a Withhold Release Order?
A practical suggestion/ request - I'm in the USG and have passed this along to folks in Congress that I know, and I work on an aspect of this stuff. This piece is great, but the legislative proposals are buried inside paragraphs discussing other stuff. Very hard to forward wholesale to a Rep / Senator and expect him/her to read it. Would be hugely useful to have a punch-list up top of the proposed elements; decision-makers can read on if/as they need to, but I want to land the punch more easily up front.
Ever thought about focusing on the United States and its many problems? I mean, China welcomes you in with open arms and you piss all over the floor. It's not a good look.
Also, ever thought about why China has the policies that it does? Hint hint: did you hear about the beheading of the schoolteacher in France last week? Incidents like that have become par for the course in Europe, and China isn't going to let that happen in their country. And they have the authoritarian predisposition to pull it off. Though their methods differ than "ours," I can't say I blame them.
While this article focuses on effective US policy in this issue, I wonder, is Xi's assessment that this is the only means to prevent a domestic ISIS correct, and if not, what are the alternatives?
It would be a much more productive and effective conversation to have.
There is no human rights abuse in Xinjiang 🤣.It’s a shadow war against China. NED funded a fake study by Adrian Zenz. Xinjiang is home to large solar industry, cotton and agricultural products.Us is desperately trying to protect its domestic solar and cotton Industry. Recently oil was discovered in Xinjiang. US has been trying to disrupt chinas BRI by destabilizing Xinjiang for a long time. You guys need to wake up to realities. Listen to col Wilkerson https://youtu.be/tVmliB0rVIo
I wonder why the two persons have such different numbers? One said 1 million and the other said 1.5 million?
