The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) sets out fundamental human rights to be universally protected.
The Chinese Communist Party controlled People’s Republic of China engages in systemic violations of Article 3 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
Uyghur and other Muslim peoples in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region are being incarcerated in what the Chinese government terms ‘re-education’ camps where the Washington Post, Newsweek, Reuters, CNN, Time, BBC, and the US Defense Department calls them “concentration camps.”
According to Assistant Secretary of Defense for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs Randal G. Schriver:
… the detention camps, given what we understand to be the magnitude of the detention, at least a million but likely closer to 3 million citizens out of a population of about 10 million, so a very significant portion of the population, what’s happening there, what the goals are of the Chinese government and their own public comments make that a very, I think, appropriate description.
This mass incarceration of people deprives the fundamental rights to liberty and security of their citizens.
