    is there an option to buy an uighur re education facility?

      No, but there is a chance card which is ‘You talked about something on internet against to CCP, go to jail.’

        i asked my wife to share a news article on wechat re the recent bbc report about rape and torture of uighur women. we're both of chinese ethnicity and it really hit home this time that "our people" are doing these alleged crimes. i wanted to know whether our friends there knew about these allegations and if there is truth in the reports.

        no one responded.

          What do you expect from your friend? Are they living in Xinjiang or in charge of those "re ed camps"? Sounds like you have already taken this BBC article based on just one side of the story as the fact. I am not saying there ain't such crimes committed, I am just curious about your way of judging fact from just another story, isn't "innocent until proven guilty" a fundamental legal principle in western common law system? Your way of accusing others reminds me of how CCP acts towards its own people…sad but true…

          • @UCB: Mate. Read my comment. Alleged. Allegations. Looking for truth. How is that taking one side as truth?

            Get off your high horse. If you come across info that someone has been raped or assaulted, you would (insert your answer here).

          • +1

            @UCB: That's the point of investigative journalism, collecting evidence and collating them into a report. There is overwhelming evidence that these crimes are being committed on a daily basis.

            • @eggboi: Would you mind showing pieces of your "overwhelming evidence", 'cause after reading the BBC article I found nothing but this line"It is impossible to verify Ziawudun's account completely because of the severe restrictions China places on reporters in the country"

        • -1

          Many of the news from western outlets are just "fake news", designed and used by western governments as geopolitical tools.

          Examples include "Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq" (proven to be a complete fabrication), 'Chemical Weapons used in Syria" (photos and videos showing child actors laughing and playing after they have taken the footage needed for their fake news) and many others.

          I won't be surprised if those Uighur incidents were also fabricated by the CIA.

          • @ju2au: so what do you suggest - ignore the allegations? on the basis that there have been a trove of fake news in the past?

          • @ju2au: I'm not surprised that you wouldn't be surprised. In FACT, a lot of the western media regularly dismissed the claims of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq - based on reliable information from reputable inspectors on the ground. Both Hussein and Assad used chemical weapons against their citizens. Search, read, and make up your own mind.

          Really? Is this not common knowledge? Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, North Korea, Singapore, South Korea, and Vietnam. It is all public holidays in these countries.

          • -1

            @MissTamriel: There are many lunar calendars around the world so to abbreviate this one to 'Chinese New Year' seems reasonable. Unless you'd prefer 'Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, North Korea, Singapore, South Korea, Vietnam, and China New Year'? But hey, knock yourself out

          • -9

            @MissTamriel: It’s a shame then that the Chinese put their name on it to imply ownership, just like they do to independent nations and other countries’ waters. The CCP and their drones are bringing this hatred towards their government on themselves. They’ll have few friends left at this rate and it won’t be long until the survivors of their repression start rising up.

            • +5

              @The Almighty Dollar: It's literally just called Spring Festival in China. It's western countries adopting the term 'Chinese New Year'.

                /offtangent TAIWAN NUMBA ONE

                    neither western

                    Exactly my point. According to wiki, Taiwan refers to it as Chinese New Year. To add to this assertion, without use of /s.

                    In fact, wiki also refers to Taiwan as a country.

                    Go check for yourself. Son.

                    • @inamberclad: Lol, I ain't got my degrees from wiki, so no thanks…taiwan is part of a country that is still in a civil war officially, so no way it's gonna be an independent country.

              • -1

                @inamberclad: Not particularly. I’m fully aware it’s not called CNY in other countries that culturally celebrate it, but do you think just because western countries call it CNY that a white male with no links to the CCP decided to just call it that? Possible, but it’s beside my point. The more pressing issues are in my points about stealing territory and disregard for international law and diplomacy. Their attitude has never been more obvious and more and more people around the world now dislike them, and that’s why people carry on whenever a product referencing China comes up. Can assure you it wouldn’t happen if they acted reasonably.

                • @The Almighty Dollar:

                  more pressing issues are in my points about stealing territory and disregard for international law and diplomacy

                  couldn't agree more

                  • @inamberclad: Regardless, they seem to be taking everything they do from the Nazi playbook. The points you mentioned along with mass surveillance of all citizens and “re-education camps”. “Communist party” is a misnomer and they love it because it makes it sound like they are a benign, obsolete form of government.

          Because you literally assumed only Chinese are celebrating Chinese New Year and commented about anti chinese information and Uighur re-education camps in China on a post about a board game, completely off topic. The creator of this website is Chinese even.

          • +7

            @MissTamriel: Mate please calibrate your targeting system because it is way off.

            Anti Chinese? Give me a break You are reading your own biases into this forum.

            If you perceive the words Uighur reeducation facility as anti Chinese, are you feeling guilty? Coz personally I do feel guilty. People are allegedly being raped and tortured and your response is calling out anti Chinese sentiment? Omg

            • -2

              @inamberclad: Then what made you want to comment any of this on a post about Monopoly of all things.

              Why would I personally feel guilty for something I did not do and am not at all involved in since I am an Australian woman? It is not called 'guilt' to feel empathy towards people…unless you're literally a CCP spy?

              • -3

                @MissTamriel: His comment was topical and quite reasonable - unlike many things the CCP does as part of its quest for world dominance, unfortunately. We should all be disgusted and abhorred, irrespective of our ethnicity and/or which country is involved. Myanmar's treatment of the Rohingya was similarly disgraceful.

                • +2

                  @DisabledUser67242: You can be outraged and get into political discussions outside of an Ozbargain post about monopoly.

                  • @MissTamriel: His initial comment wasn't outrage, it was sarcasm - and perfectly targeted.

                    So we can presume from your comments here that YOU aren't "outraged" because you weren't involved? What a sad state of affairs. Ever heard of the golden rule or 'there but for the grace [of God] go I? It's simply inexcusable for anyone - including Chinese nationals and even members of the CCP - NOT to be abhorred by the inhumane treatment of others.

              • @MissTamriel: whoa hold up
                first i'm accused of commenting anti chinese information (re the uighur re education facilities)
                now i'm accused of being CCP spy?
                mate, figure out what your argument is. then come back to me. i'm seriously confused!!!

      Or perhaps an Aussie Aboriginal Genocide Edition that shows the 2 faced nature of Australia? or perhaps a US Black Lives Don't Matter Edition for the Whites who like to criticize others but not acknowledge their own evils?

      • Lol. Your scattergun approach to argument needs quite a bit of work fella. PLENTY of "white" people worldwide acknowledge and abhor past and present treatment of ethnic and other minorities.** The fact that our own governments / officaldom (eg USA police) are also guilty of human rights abuse is no reason for us to ignore/condone abuses elsewhere.**

      Hehe everyone gets mad when Merry Christmas changed to Happy Holidays but when Chinese New Year gets changed to Lunar New Year…oh it's fine, more inclusive they say

    • AFAIK, Lunar New Year is a bit different across some Asian countries. One of simple examples would be some countries have a bit different zodiac signs/animals for each lunar year. The lunar new year we "celebrate" in Australia for decades is Chinese version Lunar New Year, the elements printed on the board are mixed by Chinese and Monopoly elements. A few years back, we changed the term "Chinese" New Year into Lunar New Year officially for not offending anyone from different cultural background who also celebrate their own lunar new years.

    • Nothing its meant to CNY, other countries or culture force it to be LNY.

          • @Whomastadon: It's not racist and I agree with you.

            What they're REALLY saying is that China (nation) = 100% (by their implicit definition) ethnically Han-Chinese, which is false. There are at least 55 other ethnicities in China.

            Therefore, they are assuming that just because they look asian or are from China must mean they are Han-Chinese, and therefore racist themselves.

            This is by definition racism and discrimination against minorities.

        • Classic CCP shill whataboutism

          Imagine dismissing genocide because another country did something a century ago.

        Hypocrisy knows no bounds. Do you go to any thread about goods or services even vaguely western and start harping on about the treatment of indigenous tribes? I have no love for the CCP but this is just a thinly veiled excuse to dump on a culture that's shared by so many communities other just those under the CCP.

        Your internet warrior effort would be better served writing to your elected reps about your concern with the absolutely horrid things they are doing in Xinjiang but hey, much easier to just shit on others because they're different and now you've got an "excuse".
