Last month saw the publication of more leaked database documents from the mass detention and surveillance system the Chinese state has imposed upon the Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities in Xinjiang. The documents reveal the bureaucratic minutiae of a policy of incarceration, indoctrination and forced assimilation that analysts are now describing as cultural genocide.

They list the personal information of 3,000 Uyghurs, along with the bizarre reasons for the internment of 311 of them, such as “untrustworthiness,” “violating birth control policies,” “religious behavior” or “having family members abroad,” and evaluations listing behavior that justified release back into a supervised home community life.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
