U.N. rights council endorses Concentration Camps & Genocide


Jun 23, 2004
Per thread title, the U.N. "rights council" will not oppose concentration camps and the inherent deprivation of human rights that go along with them. In particular, these camps were established for minorities. It is said that this widespread mistreatment of a minority group will result in the Genocide of said group. The erasure of their continued existence amidst the horrific abuse and torture of those who remain.

Is it correct in saying a defeat at the U.N. rights council is a tacit endorsement? That it could represent the view of, possibly, a majority of the planet? To not oppose and thus, in fact, endorse these measures?
This case study is a fascinating look into how humanity wants itself treated.... and it stands in stark contrast to supposed lessons "learned" from WW2 and the holocaust.

Should we despair for our future as a species?

U.N. body, in rare move, rejects debate on China's treatment of Uyghur Muslims
Thursday rejected a Western-led motion to hold a debate about alleged human rights abuses in China’s Xinjiang region after a U.N. report found possible crimes against humanity against Uyghurs and other Muslims.
The defeat (19 against, 17 for, 11 abstentions) is only the second time in the council’s 16-year history that a motion has been rejected and is seen by observers as a setback to both accountability efforts and the West’s moral authority.

For anyone left wondering about the subject's background....

Who are the Uyghurs and why is China being accused of genocide?
Earlier, leaked documents known as the China Cables made clear that the camps were intended to be run as high security prisons, with strict discipline and punishments.
People who have managed to escape the camps have reported physical, mental and sexual torture. Women have spoken of mass rape and sexual abuse.

Uyghur genocide
The Chinese government has committed a series of ongoing human rights abuses against Uyghurs and other ethnic and religious minorities in Xinjiang that is often characterized as genocide. Since 2014, the Chinese government, under the administration of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) General Secretary Xi Jinping, has pursued policies that incarcerated more than an estimated one million Turkic Muslims in internment camps without any legal process.[3][4][5] Operations from 2016 to 2021 were led by Xinjiang CCP Secretary Chen Quanguo, who dramatically increased the scale and scope of the camps.[6] This is the largest-scale detention of ethnic and religious minorities since World War II.[7][8] Experts estimate that, since 2017, some sixteen thousand mosques have been razed or damaged,[9] and hundreds of thousands of children have been forcibly separated from their parents and sent to boarding schools.[10][11]
Government policies have included the arbitrary detention of Uyghurs in state-sponsored internment camps,[12][13] forced labor,[14][15] suppression of Uyghur religious practices,[16] political indoctrination,[17] severe ill-treatment,[18] forced sterilization,[19] forced contraception,[20][21] and forced abortion.[22][23] Chinese government statistics reported that from 2015 to 2018, birth rates in the mostly Uyghur regions of Hotan and Kashgar fell by more than 60%.[19] In the same period, the birth rate of the whole country decreased by 9.69%.[24] Chinese authorities acknowledged that birth rates dropped by almost a third in 2018 in Xinjiang, but denied reports of forced sterilization and genocide.[25] Birth rates in Xinjiang fell a further 24% in 2019, compared to a nationwide decrease of 4.2%.[19]
These actions have been described as the forced assimilation of Xinjiang, or as an ethnocide or cultural genocide,[26][27] or as genocide. Those accusing China of genocide point to intentional acts committed by the Chinese government that they say run afoul of Article II of the Genocide Convention,[28][29][30] which prohibits "acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part," a "racial or religious group" including "causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group" and "measures intended to prevent births within the group".[31]

Two points.
1. The UN is worthless.
2. The first world would keel over dead without their cheap crap to sell.
