I thank you for your wonderfully revealing posts. There are very few on this forum that post on China, and it is the area of my graduate studies. I have known for a while now, how the Beijing government is tearing down the old cultures of China and replacing it with their likeness. It has been happening in Tibet for a few decades now, and I am deeply saddened to learn the same is befalling the Uighers. I have written my Senators many times on the failure of the U.S. government to call China on it's human rights abuses and tyrannical government. I found it very ironic that a government that supports China, spokeout against Iran for human rights violations and corruption. Please, share as much as possible with this forum, or PM me personally if you will. Again, thanks for sharing your experience.
