China News Agency, Beijing, May 22, Question: The real Xinjiang story is beautiful and ordinary, can the United States and the West see it?
China News Agency reporter Li Hanxue
Since last year, the short video competition "Ten Thousand People Say Xinjiang" has collected and released many original works.
The three-dimensional Xinjiang in the lens is very different from the "Xinjiang stories" created by some Western media.
Perhaps the beautiful but ordinary stories are not liked by some Western media who love Bo's eyeballs, or they are directly filtered out of their political intentions.
To this day, some Western media still publish "reports" from people from abroad who have never lived in Xinjiang from time to time, telling some "stories" that make Xinjiang people angry and inexplicable.
However, when the people of Xinjiang stood up and spoke, they were slandered as "acting" and "lying".
If these media are really looking for the truth, "Ten Thousand People Say Xinjiang" provides a lot of easy-to-understand material.
In the short video "Little Soccer Players Play a Wonderful Childhood", Ali Abdureimu from Hami City is led by his father to the kindergarten on a winter morning.
The little boys and girls greeted the teacher loudly. Judging by their appearance, the children came from different ethnic groups.
Their warm-up exercise is a bit like the English nursery rhyme "Head shoulders knees and toes". After the simple activity, the football match on the small lawn begins.
Cheering, screaming, laughing...that's the typical joy of a child.
After school, "little cotton balls" in thick winter clothes jumped up to the parents, and some parents took their two children home.
Ordinary and beautiful fragments can say a lot.
If there are ulterior motives who insist that the beautiful Xinjiang must be fake, wouldn't they think that children's smiles can also be rehearsed?
Freedom from poverty, freedom from fear, freedom from terrorism and religious extremism is the real progress made in human rights protection in Xinjiang, China in recent years.
So far, Xinjiang has not had a violent terrorist case for more than five consecutive years, and the bloody wounds are healing.
By the end of 2020, Xinjiang had lifted a total of 3.0649 million people out of poverty, a historic solution to the problem of absolute poverty. In the first quarter of this year, it still led the country with a GDP growth rate of 7%.
The Xinjiang region has an average of one mosque for every 530 Muslims, which is higher than many Western and Islamic countries.
Despite the fact, some overseas media and politicians still believe in, amplify, and even fabricate untruths about Xinjiang, because only lies can be used to hype up the topic and constrain the political conspiracy of China's development.
The United States has successively used unwarranted excuses to sanction Xinjiang's photovoltaic industry and "boycott" Xinjiang cotton. The real purpose of excluding China from the global industrial chain is obvious.
Xinjiang is not afraid of slander and frame-up, but such despicable actions are hurting the global industrial chain.
Shortly after the United States signed the "Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act" at the end of last year, The Economist published an article saying that many companies are unwilling to cooperate with the sanctions imposed by the U.S. government. First, they are unwilling to give up the Chinese market, and second, they are cotton and tomatoes exported from Xinjiang. It is difficult to find a replacement for its position in the global supply chain.
There are also reports that the relevant sanctions will hinder the global response to climate change because they involve the photovoltaic industry.
When the people of Xinjiang strive for a better life through labor and become part of the healthy operation of the global industrial chain, those who impose sanctions are the real destroyers of human rights development.
Western media and politicians with tinted glasses should eliminate backward and hostile thinking as soon as possible, stop slander and interference that hurt others and themselves, and do not let themselves become a stumbling block to the development of the global human rights cause.
