NOTE: This is an open article. When necessary, It will be updated to include more anti-China propaganda videos or new information.
There's an overwhelming amount of publications, information and data disproving the absolutely nonsensical Western claim of "up to 1 million" Uighurs "imprisoned" in so-called "concentration camps" in China. Yet, delusional Westerners wishfully swallow any lie or false claim denigrating China, the CCP, the Chinese government or the Chinese people.
In that case, instead of showing westerners Chinese "propaganda" or pro-China "propaganda", the best approach would be to dismantle the "information" westerners use to "prove" how "evil China is".
To do so, I have here a list of 11 short-documentaries produced by major Western lying MSM, ready to be debunked. I invite you all to send me data, footage, articles, documents or simply arguments you might find useful to debunk any of these videos.
You can do it by leaving a comment in this article or in this 21SilkRd's discussion.
If you prefer, you can send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or a message to my FB account (lgnomada).
You can also propose other videos to be debunked.
If you know about existing articles debunking some of these videos, please let me know.
SENDING THE DATA
If you have something useful to debunk a certain part of one of these videos, before the data, please add to your message/email something like: "about video 3, 08m05s to 08m53s".
That will help me organize the information in chronological order.
PUBLISHING THE DATA
The names of the contributors will appear at the end of each article (I will publish one article for each video).
The articles can be republished without prior authorization, but please add a reference (with a link) to the original publication.
The data can be divided into 2 categories, arguments and facts, both to be backed by all the data you can provide.
The arguments/facts can be direct ones (about the treatment given to the Uighur people, standards of living in Xinjiang, Chinese policies, arrested persons, etc.) or indirect ones (concentration camps in the US for underaged migrants, treatment of terrorists in France, Western NGOs backing pro-independence movements in China, Western indirect attacks against the Belt and Road Initiative, etc). I will give some more random examples:
Examples of arguments:
- economic and political relations between China and predominantly-Muslims nations like Iran or Iraq.
- comparison between US policy of use of Drones and Chinese policy of Reeducation Centers
- unprofessional lack of footage about terrorist attacks in China (in these Western videos)
- One Child policy didn't apply to the Uighur people or any other minority, contradicting the claims of cultural genocide in China.
- all sorts of fallacies, like the one used on Video 2, 03m09s to 03m31s: the fast growth of unknown and unvisited buildings in China, even if backed by high-definition GoogleMaps footage, can not be used as evidence of fast growth in the number of "concentrations camps in China".
Examples of facts:
- real figures about the reeducation centers
- origin of the made-up figures used in the videos
- role and money of Western organizations/states behind famous anti-regime Uighurs
- standards of living inside the Chinese reeducation centers
- presence of Uighur terrorists in Idlib, Syria
- previous terrorist attacks in China
- figures about the effectiveness of Chinese policies
- expose the use of footage of victims of terrorist attacks as false evidence of Uighurs victims of repression
