Recent from The Telegraph:
The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Inside Xinjiang: What it’s really like to report on China’s treatment of the Uyghurs” – below is their description.
Sophia Yan has been China Correspondent for the Telegraph for the last three years and has covered the region for a decade.
She last reported from Xinjiang in 2019 and was keen to return – the video above is the last installment in a three-part series showing what she found on the ground in May and June 2021.
Her aim was to bring the world images and information and to see really what was happening on the ground in this remote corner of the world that in fabric is much more like Baghdad than Beijing.
The Chinese government has repeatedly said that it welcomes journalists to the region to see for themselves – but it wants the media to broadcast sanitised images of the Uyghurs.
The reality is very different and – as you can see in the video above – there were a lot of efforts to shape what she and videographer Lorenz Huber could do and what they could see.
Part 1 of the series focuses on the culture erasure of the Uyghurs: how Beijing has begun erasing the rich cultural and religious heritage in Xinjiang to force the group to become more ‘Chinese’ – watch it here: https://youtu.be/IsIR2_Vp4yY
Part 2 focuses on the use of internment camps and an intensive propaganda campaign to create a more docile region – watch it here: https://youtu.be/4w3_A2vRGqE

In This Story: Beijing
Beijing, China’s sprawling capital, has history stretching back 3 millennia. Yet it’s known as much for modern architecture as its ancient sites such as the grand Forbidden City complex, the imperial palace during the Ming and Qing dynasties.

In This Story: Xinjiang
Xinjiang, an autonomous territory in northwest China, is a vast region of deserts and mountains. It’s home to many ethnic minority groups, including the Turkic Uyghur people. The ancient Silk Road trade route linking China and the Middle East passed through Xinjiang, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of its oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar.
