Humbled to announce my book, “No Escape” is available for pre-order w/ @HarperCollins bit.ly/3588PD0. Never expected to write a memoir this early in life & it has not been a solitary effort. Hope readers will no longer feel separate from/ indifferent to #UyghurGenocide.

Interesting how often US network TV coverage of the Pelosi visit repeated Beijing's rhetoric while ignoring Taiwanese voices. Also interesting: the parent companies of ABC, NBC & CBS have all partnered with Beijing-controlled companies on multibillion-dollar theme park resorts.🧵

PLEASE SHARE. The Chinese government set me up with a fake bomb threat email as punishment for my human rights activism and I’m now facing possible 7 years in British prison. Sixty Minutes interview my barrister @MichaelPolakLaw. This is an appalling injustice

Computer scientists at Berkeley developed an open source semiconductor technology that can challenge the likes of Intel and Arm. Now, it's based in Geneva and Chinese firms are lining up for seats on the board! Great stuff from @iborshoff thewirechina.com/2022/08/07/…

“虽然集中营中的残酷和屈辱继续有增无减,但在外面却也不断发生其他恐怖的事情。围捕、勤密的检查、失踪和随机逮捕都是正常的。” 对于努尔.特克尔@NuryTurkel 的新书,@The_NewArab 写道。english.alaraby.co.uk/featur…

When I was cooking, I can’t connect to Twitter. Guess what’s happening? Because I’m cooking Chinese food, my kitchen automatically becomes a part of China.
Baidu Maps show that there are 38 Shandong dumpling restaurants and 67 Shanxi noodle restaurants in Taipei. Palates don't cheat. #Taiwan has always been a part of China. The long lost child will eventually return home.

I've read a number of (mostly academic) books and reports about #CCP atrocities in #Xinjiang over the years. But @nuryturkel's "No Escape" hits home in a very disturbing way. Wherever you are, read it. The CCP is the great challenge of our time -- for all of us.

.@SpeakerPelosi: China “will not isolate Taiwan by preventing us to travel there…We will not allow them to isolate Taiwan. They are not doing our travel schedule.” Pitch-perfect. 💪🏻👍🏻🇹🇼

Grateful to @GravitasDoc for the opportunity to contribute to this incredibly powerful film “The Broken Promise,” which examines humanity’s worst moments and our failure to fulfill the vow “#NeverAgain.”

Apple has asked suppliers to ensure that shipments from #Taiwan to China strictly comply with Chinese customs rules to mark the origins as made in “Taiwan, China” after a recent Pelosi visit to Taipei stoked fears of rising trade barriers. @NikkeiAsia asia.nikkei.com/Spotlight/Su…

Multiple PLA craft were detected around Taiwan Strait, some have crossed the median line. Possible simulated attack against HVA. #ROCArmedForces have utilized alert broadcast, aircraft in CAP, patrolling naval vessels, and land-based missile systems in response to this situation.
