World China’s Uyghur press conference part of ‘wider propaganda offensive’
Uyghur community leaders in Australia appalled and outraged the government allowed a Chinese Communist Party propaganda parade
Foreign governments accuse China of committing genocide against Uyghurs and detaining about a million people, and community leaders in Australia want the government here to recognise the alleged atrocities.Their comments come after the Chinese embassy in Canberra held a press conference where journalists were played five propaganda videos about conditions in Xinjiang in China's far west.
China’s bizarre and chilling press conference in Canberra attempting to downplay concerns of genocide against Uyghurs was part of a “wider propaganda offensive” against western media, according to the ANU’s Michael Clarke.
The Chinese Embassy in Canberra held a press conference on Wednesday in which it play multiple propaganda films aimed at portraying Xinjiang province as peaceful despite widespread reports of atrocities against the Uyghur population.
Mr Clark told Sky News the press conference was an “interesting spectacle” on multiple levels, and was definitely part of Beijing’s ongoing “disinformation or propaganda offensive."
