The Chinese government  is expanding Concentration Camps. China has locked in concentration camps more than 1 million ethnic Muslim Uighurs, Kazakhs and others in Xinjiang province. The Chinese government has detained at least 800,000 and possibly more than 2 million Uyghurs in “re-education centers,” marking the largest mass internment of an ethnic-religious minority group since World War II. In the camps, Uyghurs are forced to undergo psychological indoctrination programs as well as physical torture, including waterboarding and sexual abuse. 

A survivor from the camp Mihrigul Tursun  talked about the everyday indecencies of the camp. She remembered a white pill she was forced to take every two hours that made her feel numb. The Chinese police only allowed her to drink water after she took the pill, though. She also recounted the room she slept in with 68 other women, which she said was so small the women had to take turns sleeping. Tursun said her feet were tied and her hands were handcuffed to her feet while she slept, which still affects her today.

Tursun said witnessing death and torture was not uncommon in the camps. According to Tursun, in the three months she was in a camp, she saw nine women die. She said she met one woman who was imprisoned for 19 months.

“They didn’t let her go out to see the sun once. They didn’t let her shower for over a year,” Tursun said. “This is not a detention camp. They kill us here.”
