Human Rights Atrocities
On this page we will keep track of and stay updated on the desperate human rights scenario in China and how that relates directly to our industry. It is a known fact that Concentration Camps still exist on our planet- and they're in China. We think this is despicable and unacceptable, and we think that you should know about it.

Recently leaked Chinese government documents reveal how local officials targeted Muslim minorities in China. Satellite images show that many of them have been held in detention camps across the vast Uighur homeland in northwest China. Uighur migrant friends began to tell me, in whispers or coded text messages, that they had to go back home and they could no longer contact me. I never heard from many of them again. For those that stayed in the city, I frequently heard stories about friends’ relatives being taken in the middle of the night.
I’m not in contact with any of my Uighur friends because contacting a foreigner would be grounds for detainment. I don’t know how many of them are in detention camps. One Uighur friend told me in 2017, “We are all just waiting for the knock on our door.”

Inmates slept 20 to a room with just a bucket for a toilet, were routinely tortured and raped, and were given injections that made them infertile, she said. If this doesn't horrify you then perhaps nothing will. Do you know where your money is going? How would you feel if you knew you were funding something like this? Turns out that buying Hikvision and possibly Dahua directly supports ethnic cleansing, rape, and torture.

Finally someone made a stand against China’s persecution – who? The United Nations. Why? Human rights violations due to ethno-religious identity. One million, five hundred thousand Uighurs have been forced into re-education camps (a.k.a. Prison to brainwash) in China simply because of their religion. China’s government is responsible. The same government that owns or controls Huawei (makers of HiSilicon – cyber threat), and Hikvision.
- Link : Hikvision's Direct Involvement in the Concentration Camps
Hikvision's Involvement with IJOP, China’s "Re-education" aka Concentration Camps and Mosques. If you ever bid against a Hikvision installer/seller this should be all you need to change the end-user's mind. Hikvision has aligned themselves with spying – not simply capturing images, but outright spying by developing WiFi probes that track unique addresses of networked devices which allows their cameras to track people via smartphones and other personal electronics. That’s bad on its own, but it is used to target specific people of race and religion and guess where they end up? "Re-education" camps (prison), where ethnic minorities are raped and tortured, which is also secured by their surveillance systems. Do you really think that Hikvision is NOT using the same software in the cameras they sell to you?

You would think this is something out of a Sci-Fi film like Minority Report- but it is real and it is affecting millions of human being's lives. How does China decide who gets arrested? These notices reveal that the IJOP gathers information from multiple sources or “sensors.” One source is CCTV cameras, some of which have facial recognition or infrared capabilities (giving them “night vision”). They track whether or not you're a Christian or Muslim using Facial Recognition cameras...

However the US Government, as well as Gen IV Technology, have concerns about the widespread use and sale of Hikvision & Dahua by American companies: "Of particular concern are reports of U.S. companies that may be contributing to Beijing's persecution of Uyghurs through their support or commercial ties to Hikvision and Dahua - two Chinese tech giants that have profited from the surge of security spending in Xinjiang," committee chair Eliot Engel and three cosigners said in the letter. Do you care?
- Link : Families Demand Answers!
Hundreds of thousands of families have been torn apart by this massive crackdown. They are desperate to know what has happened to their loved ones and it is time the Chinese authorities give them answers. “The Chinese government must not be allowed to continue this vicious campaign against ethnic minorities in northwest China. Governments across the world must hold the Chinese authorities to account for the nightmare unfolding in the XUAR,” said Nicholas Bequelin, Amnesty International’s East Asia Director.
- Link : Xinjiang's Police State & Concentration Camps are growing fast
China's construction of a vast, all-seeing police state in its fractious far west has triggered a government spending spree worth billions to firms providing a hi-tech network of cameras and "re-education centres". Don't forget that the Chinese government has been proven to own the majority of Hikvision! Hikvision has received over 6 Billion in 0% interest loans from the P.R.C. to do business abroad. This does affect everyone on the planet. It does matter.
