Canada acknowledges 'Uyghur genocide'
On Monday, the Canadian parliament passed a non-binding motion calling China's treatment of Uighur "genocide". Parliament now calls on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government to officially recognize China's treatment of the Muslim minority as such.

266 of the 338 members of the Canadian House of Commons voted in favor of the motion tabled by the opposition. Several coalition members also voted in favor. The other members, including Trudeau and ministers from his government, abstained.

The motion acknowledges that " Uighurs in China have been victims of genocide in the past and the present."According to members of Parliament, Uighurs in the Xinjiang region of China have experienced, among other things, "political and anti-religious indoctrination", "forced labor" and "the destruction of cultural sites."According to investigative journalists, Muslim women are systematically raped and tortured.

An amendment to the motion calling for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing to be moved to another country if China continues the genocide was also passed.

According to experts, more than a million Uighurs are currently being held against their will in political re-education camps. Beijing denies this and claims that these are vocational training centers to get Uighur away from terrorism and separatism.
