Wang Huiyao: China has lifted 800 MILLION from poverty, Xinjiang accusations are GROUNDLESS (E996)
On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Wang Huiyao, founder and president of the Centre for China and Globalisation and counselor on China’s State Council. He discusses the blockage of the Suez Canal by the ‘Ever Given’ ship, 400 US military bases surrounding China, alleged human rights abuses in Xinjiang, why accusations of two million Uighurs in re-education camps in Xinjiang are baseless, why the reports of forced labour in Xinjiang are not true, the Communist Party’s efforts towards poverty alleviation, social security expansion in China, and much more! Finally, we speak to Aviva Chomsky, professor of history at Salem State University and daughter of Noam Chomsky. She discusses the US-Mexico border crisis, why the issue is much more complicated than ‘Biden locking up children at the border,’ how US immigration and foreign policy are behind thousands leaving their homes in Latin America and heading for the United States, why $4 billion for El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras in disaster aid won’t end the migration crisis, how structural racism is one of the causes of the border crisis, the economic conditions causing people to flee their home countries, US interventions and regime change operations that have impoverished millions in Latin America, and more!
In response to the allegations made by Wang Huiyao, Rushan Abbas told us: “I worked at Guantanamo as an Uyghur translator. I am happy that I was able to give linguistic support for those 22 Uyghurs, where I assisted these wrongfully accused Uyghurs in obtaining release. Perhaps critics think they should have been left without the ability to communicate, but I certainly could not stand by and allow that to happen. I have been very vocal about my translation work at GTMO and there are documentaries, news reports and interviews available to view regarding my time there. The CCP and genocidal apologists' attacks on me saying that my work at GTMO has been exposed by them is laughable as it is not a secret. The CIA accusations are yet another deflection tactic by a desperate regime that can no longer escape justice for its genocide and crimes against humanity.”
