Chris Hayes Talks About the Uighurs and China’s Secret Internment Camps
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes picked up the story on his podcast.
Right now, roughly ten percent of the Uyghur population has been ‘disappeared’, held indefinitely in re-education camps where they are subjected to totalitarian indoctrination in an attempt to erase their identity, their language, their religion and their culture.
His guest, Rian Thum, explains what is known about the camps and how they came to be – including the prison-like surveillance state that Uighurs outside of the camps are forced to live in.
FYI: To pronounce the word “Uighur” properly, say “we-gurr.”
