More than one million Uyghurs and Muslims are arbitrarily imprisoned in "re-education camps". There they are tortured, beaten, and women are raped. Uyghur and Muslim children have been taken from their homes to state orphanages. Uyghur women are forced to get abortions, undergo sterilization, and implant IUDs to reduce Uyghur birth rates. Meanwhile, those that speak out are either targeted or members of their families disappear. This is an active and clear genocide in which the Uyghur people are being killed and forced to go against their religious beliefs and cultural practices.
