HOTAN, China (AP) — Barbed wire and hundreds of cameras ring a massive compound of more than 30 dormitories, schools, warehouses and workshops in China’s far west. Dozens of armed officers and a growling Doberman stand guard outside. Behind locked gates, men and women are sewing sportswear that can end up on U.S. college campuses and sports teams.

Hearing on The Communist Party’s Crackdown on Religion in China

November 25, 2018 seems as good a day as any to make a pledge, so here goes.

Starting from this day to whenever the camps in Xinjiang end (or I end), I am no longer a "scholar" and am completely freezing all my scholarly activities - i.e., math/optimization research, Uyghur language research, Uyghur restaurants book, other Central Asian language study, other miscellaneous projects - to devote myself full-time to putting an end to Xinjiang's camp system using the tools available to me. (I will still devote 3-4 hours/day to translation work to pay the bills, but that's the only exception.)

While my life's already been largely on hold since May, I nevertheless tried to maintain some side scholarly work so as not to let it get too rusty, but now find this indefensible. The situation in Xinjiang has gotten so bad that to try to continue to live normally and pursue personal interests while all that goes on seems silly. May this decision serve as yet another indicator of that.

Please don't leave comments with things like "so grateful for everything you're doing". I neither want nor need them. The best thing you could do right now would be to think, think, think of what more you could do... and then actually do it.

So yea, back to work.

Someone from Xinjiang sent a long message to a relative abroad yesterday. In that message, based on what he had obtained from insiders, he said that: (1) At concentration camps in Aksu, more than 960 people have died since Jan. 2018. (2) To cope with the international pressure on the detention of large number of Uyghurs without charge, the local governments in Xinjiang started to hand over charges using some “Look Up Tables” issued by the government to the detainees in concentration camps in massive number, and transfer them into prisons.
