A useful educational video about China’s persecution of the Uyghur which the regime justifies as a fight against terrorism. Stalinists outright deny the persecution, claiming it is anti-communist propaganda. But they also campaign for the Chinese occupation of Tibet, arguing it is a move to free Tibetans from feudalism. Following the regime, some Stalinists may eventually acknowledge the persecution of Uyghur but posit it as a fight against terrorism just as they argue that Russian, Iranian, & Hezbollah military intervention in Syria is to free the country of terrorism.
