An investigation by the E&T found that China has expanded activities in many large “re-education” concentration camps across East Turkistan (the country that China calls “Xinjiang”).

Working with data and analysis provided by the East Turkistan National Awakening Movement (ETNAM), Adrian Zenz, the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, and satellite imagery analysis companies, the investigation revealed China’s false claims regarding its mass internment of over 3 million Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and other Turkic peoples in East Turkistan.
