I don't have an opinion on the Uyghur camps. Communism is bad, and Islam is just as bad. Face it, had it been the Muslims in control of the CCP, innocent Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Confucianists, Shinto people, etc. would be in significantly worse camps in locations that might not be as . . . photogenic.

Great Guardian article: Disney remake of Mulan criticised for filming in Xinjiang

Film credits offer thanks to eight government entities in region where rights abuses are alleged

Disney’s live-action remake of Mulan, already the target of a boycott, has come under fire for filming in Xinjiang, the site of alleged widespread human rights abuses against Uighurs and other Muslim minorities.

After the film’s release last Friday, observers noted another controversial element: in the final credits Disney offers “special thanks” to eight government entities in Xinjiang, including the public security bureau in Turpan, a city in eastern Xinjiang where several re-education camps have been documented.

The film also expresses thanks to the “publicity department of CPC Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomy Region Committee”, the Chinese Communist party’s propaganda department in Xinjiang. Disney has been approached for comment.

Activists calling for a boycott of the film are now highlighting its links to Xinjiang, while researchers noted that the public security bureau in Turpan oversees at least 14 internment camps in the area.

I'm making a prediction right now: it's going to come out that Uighur slaves were used in the production of Mulan either in set construction or as extras.
