Atajurt Kazakh Human Rights’ channel has published nearly 11,000 videos on YouTube totaling over 120 million views since 2017, thousands of which feature people speaking to camera about relatives they say have disappeared without a trace in China’s Xinjiang region, where UN experts and rights groups estimate over a million people have been detained in recent years. “The day YouTube deactivated our channel, I felt I’d lost everything in the world… the new channel does not have so many subscribers,” he said.

A human rights group that attracted millions of views on YouTube to testimonies from people who say their families have disappeared in China’s Xinjiang region is moving its videos to little-known service Odysee after some were taken down by the Google-owned streaming giant, two sources told Reuters.
Afunny thing is underfoot in America, where people with differing opinions are publicly shamed every day by the rich and powerful over such things as race relations and gender issues. Those very same rich and powerful entities are not only enabling historic human rights abuses at the hand of Communist China, but they are profiting while they are protecting them. Billion dollar megacorps like Disney, Nike and the NBA rake in the money that is generated on the backs of Muslims held at gunpoint in Chinese concentration camps. Shame on you, lying Liberals.
“Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.” Proverbs 23:23 (KJB)
Nike Chief executive John Donahoe said that “Nike is a brand that is of China and for China”, ignoring the fact that China is the world’s most-oppressive human rights violators, and that for years Nike profited from work done by one million Muslim Uyghurs locked in camps. Now today comes the story that Google-owned YouTube is blocking videos that expose human rights violations in Communist China. Ironically and predictably, these are the very same people promoting racial division here in America.
YouTube takes down Xinjiang videos, forces rights group to seek alternative
FROM THOMSON REUTERS: The group, credited by international organizations like Human Rights Watch for drawing attention to human rights violations in Xinjiang, has come under fire from Kazakh authorities since its founding in 2017. Serikzhan Bilash, a Xinjiang-born Kazakh activist who co-founded the channel and has been arrested multiple times for his activism, said government advisors told him five years ago to stop using the word “genocide” to describe the situation in Xinjiang – an order he assumed came from pressure from China’s government on Kazakhstan.
“THEY’RE JUST FACTS,” BILASH SAID TO REUTERS IN A PHONE INTERVIEW, REFERRING TO THE CONTENT OF ATAJURT’S VIDEOS. “THE PEOPLE GIVING THE TESTIMONIES ARE TALKING ABOUT THEIR LOVED ONES.”
Atajurt Kazakh Human Rights’ channel has published nearly 11,000 videos on YouTube totaling over 120 million views since 2017, thousands of which feature people speaking to camera about relatives they say have disappeared without a trace in China’s Xinjiang region, where UN experts and rights groups estimate over a million people have been detained in recent years.
On June 15, the channel was blocked for violating YouTube’s guidelines, according to a screenshot seen by Reuters, after twelve of its videos had been reported for breaching its ‘cyberbullying and harassment’ policy. The channel’s administrators had appealed the blocking of all twelve videos between April and June, with some reinstated – but YouTube did not provide an explanation as to why others were kept out of public view, the administrators told Reuters. Following inquiries from Reuters as to why the channel was removed, YouTube restored it, explaining that it had received multiple so-called ‘strikes’ for videos which contained people holding up ID cards to prove they were related to the missing, violating a YouTube policy which prohibits personally identifiable information from appearing in its content. They reinstated the channel on June 18 but asked Atajurt to blur the IDs.
