Skip to comments.Huawei’s Prison Camp Technology Goes Global: The Company's technologies enables mass persecution and is being exported around the world

Huawei, the embattled Chinese network equipment provider, has a new accusation to address. In the West, the company has been well known for its 5G network equipment and as the second largest handset maker in the world. It is also a leader in AI technology.
However, Huawei has a much darker side to it as an instrument of policy for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). You may recall that the company leadership has been accused of violating U.S. sanctions against Iran, leading to the arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou in Canada in December of 2018, where she remains in custody.
Huawei Spyware Is Everywhere
But Huawei has been condemned by the United States and others for building spyware into its hardware and other back doors for data gathering and theft from network users. The use of Huawei 5G network equipment among allies of the United States, such as the UK, has been a contentious subject.
Accordingly, U.S. authorities have warned allies that proceeding with Huawei equipment installation would lead to a minimization of the sharing of sensitive and security information. Specifically, the United States has asked the UK to refrain from using Huawei for their 5G network upgrade, citing clear security risks.
As a consequence, over the past three years, the United States campaign against Huawei has cost the company billions of dollars in lost revenue. But new information has come to light that only darkens Huaweis notorious reputation.

In recent articles, Forbes identifies Huawei as playing an integral role in Chinas widespread and pervasive Orwellian surveillance state apparatus. In a November exposition, Forbes contributor Zak Dorfman explains how the companys advanced surveillance and tracking technology is a critical enabler of the CCPs oppression, imprisonment, and torture of millions of Uyghurs in the western province of Xinjiang:
The far-reaching use of (Huawei) technology to underpin all of this is a consistent theme throughout. This includes AI-based surveillance, intrusive data collection and smartphone and general communications monitoring. Any missteps seemingly run the risk of internment. And once detained, only modified thinking and behaviors seem likely to secure a persons release.
Furthermore, the article cites the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which published the China Cables, exposes intercepted information about operations manuals and status reports for Xinjiangs surveillance ecosystem and detention camps. The policies and procedures contained in the manuals are shown to have been personally approved by Xinjiangs security authority.
These facts have been confirmed by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), which led its own investigation into the China Cables claims. The ASPIs report concluded that, Huaweis work in Xinjiang is extensive and includes working directly with the Chinese Governments public security bureaus in the region
Huaweis Xinjiang activities should be taken into consideration during debates about Huawei and 5G technologies.
Thanks for posting this! Especially the longer excerpt. My tablet formats ET horribly. One skinny column down the left, a mile long. I go blind.
Not to hijack, but people desperately need to realize how pervasive China’s disinformation’s bribery is here in the US. They control much of the media. Unlike Russia, they aren’t chintzy dropping serious cash. They think nothing of spending a billion dollars in bribes and espionage payments.
They hired an army of people to respond, deflect, and post “Orange Man Bad* all over Twitter, FB, etc.
Wahway is absolutely disgusting
