China says ‘George Floyd cannot even breathe freely’ as it blasts US over Uighur Muslims forced labor claims — RT World News
on.rt.comexternal-link

Beijing has cited the death of American black man George Floyd as evidence of Washington’s hypocrisy after it imposed a ban on all tomato and cotton products from China’s western Xinjiang region over alleged human rights abuses.

Prison slavery is legal in the US. Its left-liberals such as Ava DuVernay and Killer Mike keep pointing that out. One of its most brutal slave-labor prisons is called Angola. It’s built on the site of an earlier slave-labor plantation called Angola, named after the African country from which it enslaved its work force. US has absolutely no shame whatsoever.

It also functions exactly like a slave plantation from the days of yore. “Inmates” in there will also never see the outside world

by the way, can fellow comrades provide any info whether the aforementioned forced labour accusations are true or not?

Big thread on this.

Short version is there’s no evidence, its mainly just some anti-semitic guy named adrian zenz who doesn’t speak chinese, and has never been to Xinjiang, copying photos of buildings from google maps, telling western governments what they want to hear, and stories keep re-circulating. A few other western regime-change academics got in on the action, and China repeatedly invites ambassadors to visit the region, and the western ones that do go end up saying yeah this is all bullshit, so their stories don’t get printed.

they’re not true in the slightest. the so-called “camps” were legitimately just boarding schools. We’ve had posts explaining this here on lemmygrad, you might be able to find them with a search.

RT isn’t that bad, esp when talking about things like this. They’re deffo better than a source like dailymail or CNN, but nowhere near perfect.

it’s a company partly run and affiliated with corrupt oligarchs and is involved in money extraction and laundering schemes and other sketchy things, and in general their journalism quality is lacking at best, i guess you could say that it has the benefit of not being affiliated with the us government, but still, i would personally much prefer another source if there were one

There’s no such thing as free or unbiased journalism… at best what you can do is read the article and evaluate each and every claim – what they say, why they say it, what they are not saying, which words they’re using, etc.

I literally can’t tell if you’re talking about RT or CNN.

CNN platforms cia analysts and other deep state officials

RT platforms Marxists of varying stripes and even has Communist Party members on its shows denouncing US imperialism

RT is good and you already know its bias

Discussion Community for fellow Marxist-Leninists and other Marxists.

Rules for /c/communism

Rules that visitors must follow to participate. May be used as reasons to report or ban.

  1. No non-marxists

This subreddit is here to facilitate discussion between marxists.

There are other communities aimed at helping along new communists. This community isn’t here to convert naysayers to marxism.

If you are a member of the police, armed forces, or any other part of the repressive state apparatus of capitalist nations, you will be banned.

  1. No oppressive language

Do not attempt to justify your use of oppressive language.

Doing this will almost assuredly result in a ban. Accept the criticism in a principled manner, edit your post or comment accordingly, and move on, learning from your mistake.

We believe that speech, like everything else, has a class character, and that some speech can be oppressive. This is why speech that is patriarchal, white supremacist, cissupremacist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive is banned.

TERF is not a slur.

  1. No low quality or off-topic posts

Posts that are low-effort or otherwise irrelevant will be removed.

This is not a place to engage in meta-drama or discuss random reactionaries on lemmy or anywhere else.

This includes memes and circlejerking.

This includes most images, such as random books or memorabilia you found.

We ask that amerikan posters refrain from posting about US bourgeois politics. The rest of the world really doesn’t care that much.

  1. No basic questions about marxism

Posts asking entry-level questions will be removed.

Questions like “What is Maoism?” or “Why do Stalinists believe what they do?” will be removed, as they are not the focus on this forum.

  1. No sectarianism

Marxists of all tendencies are welcome here.

Refrain from sectarianism, defined here as unprincipled criticism. Posts trash-talking a certain tendency or marxist figure will be removed. Circlejerking, throwing insults around, and other pettiness is unacceptable.

If criticisms must be made, make them in a principled manner, applying Marxist analysis.

The goal of this subreddit is the accretion of theory and knowledge and the promotion of quality discussion and criticism.
