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.
Wahway is absolutely disgusting
