They aren’t concentration camps. The area had an issue with terrorist attacks, so the Chinese government being marxist leninists used materialist analysis to determine that poverty caused people to turn to violent ideologies, so they worked extra hard to give the people in the area an education, these centers they went to were essentially just schools, not concentration camps. In addition to this they worked on improving the infrastructure in the area.
Also something most people don’t know is that these extremist groups were recruiting people on Facebook and the CPC asked facebook to do something about it and they refused, so then China banned Facebook from the country.
Mandatory schools where doctors can go to learn how to be involuntary unskilled laborers and praise Xi Jingping all day long.
Forced reeducation camps -> forced labor. Calling that a concentration camp is pretty fair.
