Shock report: how China buys Western academics. The University a tot per kg

A shocking investigation has just been published by the French weekly Le Point on how Beijing is gaining favor with Western universities.

Gulbahar Haitiwaji (pictured above), a survivor of Chinese "re-education camps" in Xinjiang, recently revealed what is happening there. “It is forbidden to speak the Uyghur language; it is forbidden to pray; it is forbidden to go on a hunger strike… ”He had to defecate in a plastic bucket in front of the others. She was chained to her bed for 20 days. No.

An Italian associate professor, for example, Fabio Massimo Parenti, of the Lorenzo de Medici International Institute in Florence, was hosted in Xinjiang, where it is estimated that up to two million Uighurs are locked up in "re-education camps". But he was not alone: ​​many British schools are now closely under the influence and propaganda of Beijing. Nigel Farage , the leader of the UK Reform Party, recently tweeted that " Chinese billionaires with direct links to the CCP are buying up British schools – and flooding the curriculum with their propaganda ", and listed the names of some in the UK. "Under Chinese control":

Starting from September 2019, in Urumqi, capital of the Uyghur region of Xinjiang in western China, Christian Mestre, honorary dean of the Faculty of Law of the University of Strasbourg, participated in an " international seminar on the fight against terrorism, de-radicalization and protection of human rights ". The seminar was organized by the People's Republic of China. Mestre's statements were transcribed by both the state media, the Xinhua news agency, and the nationalist newspaper Global Times. It seems incredible that a Frenchman then goes to teach deradicalization in China, when they cannot even attempt this goal in France, but it seems that, in the end, French academics like Chinese systems.

“I hope that France and other European countries can adopt the answers provided by Xinjiang” referring to the “vocational training centers”, the name given by Beijing to its re-education camps. "These people are not in prison", the professor attested, "but sent to compulsory school". Nothing to see here, as they say. But these academics then have to explain the reality of the facts and situations, such as what happened, precisely in Gulbahar Haitiwaji.

She had lived in France for ten years. Her husband and daughters had political refugee status, but Gulbahar preferred to keep her Chinese passport to visit her elderly mother. In November 2016, she bought a ticket to China, where she was quickly deported to a re-education camp for her people, the Uighurs. She was detained for two years before she could be released under pressure from France. Earlier this year he published a chilling short story, “Rescapée du goulag chinois”. ["Survivor of a Chinese gulag"]

Gulbahar is the first Uyghur to be released and repatriated to France. "Xi Jinping, he summarizes," wants Xinjiang without the Uyghurs ".

She was moved from one detention center to another. First the pre-trial detention center, with the rules hanging on the wall: “It is forbidden to speak Uyghur; it is forbidden to pray; it is forbidden to go on a hunger strike… ”He had to defecate in a plastic bucket in front of the others.

She was chained to her bed for 20 days in 2017. She was taken to one of those new "vocational training centers", the regime's name for its gulags. Baijintan Camp – three buildings "as big as small airports" on the edge of the desert – is surrounded by fences topped with barbed wire. Prisoners no longer see daylight, only neon lights. The cameras follow every movement of the inmates.

“Thanks to our great country. Thanks to our dear President Xi Jinping ”, the detainees must repeat from dawn to dusk.

After taking on new names (Gulbahar has become "Number 9"), their clothes and hair are removed. Chinese re-education then begins to take hold in their minds. A camp guard shows the group of inmates a wall: “What color is it?” He asks. "White", they reply. “No, it's black. It is I who decide what color it is ”.

Then come strange "vaccinations". “Women no longer have menstruation. Once back in France, I really felt the existence of sterilization … "

In France, 18 Confucius Institutes have been opened in the past 15 years, ostensibly to teach Chinese and promote Chinese culture . In Europe, in 2019, Belgium expelled the rector of the Confucius Institute of the Free Flemish University of Brussels after the security services accused him of being a spy.

An expert from Tibet, Françoise Robin, of the National Institute of Oriental Languages ​​and Civilizations (Inalco), calls these institutes “propaganda weapons”. In 2016, Inalco invited the Dalai Lama for a conference. "We have received official letters from the Chinese embassy asking us not to receive it," said Robin.

In September 2014, Professor Mestre's Faculty of Law at the University of Strasbourg hosted a series of events on Tibet, with lectures, exhibitions, dances and concerts organized "at the request of the Consulate General of China in Strasbourg", according to the terms of an email sent by the principal. " The inaugural conference assured [everyone] that Tibet was never annexed, [and] that the Chinese intervention of 1950 was requested by the Tibetans, " recalled Nicolas Nord, a law professor. A sensational historical falsehood, however it has become a reality for the French university

The Economist recently hinted at what the Chinese regime is really doing in Tibet: eradicating the influence of Buddhism from the minds of their people.

The new head of the CIA, William J. Burns, said that if it were up to him, he would shut down all Confucius Institutes in Western universities. According to the Daily Mail, hundreds of independent schools that have been left in dire financial straits by the Wuhan virus pandemic have since been targeted by Chinese investors. China is evidently trying to expand its influence in the British education system, as it is in the United States. Seventeen schools in the UK are already owned by Chinese companies and that number is set to increase. Additionally, The Times revealed that the University of Cambridge received a "generous gift" from Tencent Holdings, one of the largest tech companies in China involved in state censorship.

It comes back to the "Cambridge Five", the British spy network – Anthony Blunt, Donald Maclean, Kim Philby, Guy Burgess and John Cairncross – in the service of the Soviet Union and also based at the famous British university. Kim Philby, who died in exile in the Soviet Union, never regretted having betrayed the United Kingdom: "It was only at the end of my stay in Cambridge that I made the final decision to dedicate my life to communism".

At that time, many in the West could have honestly said that they did not know how many people had been killed or imprisoned by the Soviet regime. Today we know a lot about China's cruelty, including the mass murder of the Wuhan virus that the Chinese Communist Party imposed on the world, first by lying that the virus was not person-to-person transmissible, then by stopping internal flights from Wuhan. but letting international flights continue. As a result, every country on the planet has been infected, resulting in the murder of over 2.5 million people.

We also know of the number of people locked up in the laogai, the Chinese "administrative prisons" (estimated at 50 million). We know the number of Chinese girls that the regime prevented from being born when the "one child policy" was in effect (estimated at 30 million). We know of the number of people killed in Tiananmen Square, the last time the regime was openly challenged by its citizens (estimated at 10,000).

"Places inhabited by ethnic minorities, such as Xinjiang and Tibet, have stood out as shining examples of China's progress in human rights," Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said hours before speaking at the annual conference of the Council for human rights of the United Nations. Probably not even the Soviet Union could have thought that.
