A new state media report claims that the Chinese government is no longer holding Uyghur women in internment camps. The Uyghur women have been “emancipated” and are “no longer baby-making machines,” according to a tweet posted by the Chinese Embassy in the U.S.

Uyghurs are Muslims who are ethnically Turkic. They are a minority population.

“In the process of eradicating extremism, the minds of Uyghur women were emancipated and gender equality and reproductive health were promoted, making them no longer baby-making machines,” the report said. “Women have since been striving to become healthy, confident and independent.”

The report received backlash, with many saying that the Chinese government was admitting to the persecution of the Uyghur population in China.

In a research report released last year, Adrian Zenz, a German scholar, discovered that the Chinese government disguised these internment camps as “re-education camps” but according to Zenz’s research, were used as a form of threat and punishment. Officials detain women and families who fail to comply with pregnancy checks, forced contraception, sterilizations or abortions.

Zenz said there had been a significant drop in the natural population growth rate in southern Xinjiang (Northwest China) in 2018 and claimed that China was trying to control the size of the Uyghur population.

Zenz said that the Chinese government had a plan to reduce natural birth or natural population growth to near zero by 2020.

The state media report denied that the decrease in birth rate and natural population growth was due to forced sterilization. The Chinese government attributed the decrease in population growth to family planning programs and increased education.

The state media report claims that safe, effective and appropriate contraceptive measures were available to couples of childbearing age in Xinjiang, and it is their personal decisions on whether to use those measures. As a result, the birthrate in Xinjiang decreased.

“An increasing number of people in southern Xinjiang were deciding to marry and have children later in life, seeing the benefits of fewer but better births, and the change was due more to personal choice than government policy.”

China denies any claims of forced sterilization, however, experts continue to believe Uighur women in Xinjiang are being sterilized.

Electric Vehicle company with Chinese ties awarded $500 million of taxpayer money for 2nd U.S. plant

With a little help from their Democrat friends, a Chinese electric vehicle (EV) battery company with ties to the Chinese Communist Party just announced the opening of its second plant in the United States.

Fox News reports Gotion Inc., whose parent company Gotion High-Tech is based in Hefei, China, unveiled plans to build a $2 billion lithium battery plant in Manteno, Illinois, alongside Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker, who cheered the project.

The announcement comes amid growing opposition to the company’s plans to build a billion-dollar factory in Mecosta County, Michigan.

In order to make the expansion happen, lobbyists for the Chinese Communist Party-tied electric vehicle company funneled cash to Democrats. “Individuals at a law firm registered as foreign agents to lobby on behalf of Gotion, a Chinese electric vehicle battery company developing a controversial project in Michigan, and wired campaign contributions to several top Democrats” reports Fox News.

“According to state and federal filings, Monique Field-Foster, an attorney at the Lansing office of the Warner Norcross + Judd law firm who is acting as a foreign agent on behalf of Gotion, donated to the campaigns of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Whitmer’s sister Liz Gereghty and Michigan Democratic Senate hopeful Rep. Elissa Slotkin” the Fox News report continued.

“In partnership with the business community and the General Assembly, two years ago we set out to make Illinois a destination for electric vehicle and clean energy companies from across the globe,” Pritzker said in a statement.

“With the right incentives, nation-leading infrastructure, world-class workforce and booming clean energy production, we have transformed ourselves into an attractive location for global manufacturers. Today, we take another leap forward. It’s my pleasure to welcome Gotion to Illinois and to show the world yet again that Illinois is ready to be a player on the world stage.”

Pritzker delivered remarks late last week thanking Gotion for choosing Illinois to call “home” in a ceremony with leaders from Gotion High-Tech, including Li Zhen, the company’s chairman and president, who said he expected the factory to open in less than 12 months.

“All that we see here [in Illinois] are of enormous value to us: an enabling business environment, a supportive state government for the new energy industry and their highly efficient work, as well as the prospects of the State of Illinois in the coming years,” the Gotion president added. “We believe that Gotion’s battery technology will help to boost e-mobility in North America and the economic and trade exchanges between China and the U.S.”
