A new report from the Uyghur Human Rights Project (UHRP) details the repression of religious freedom among Uyghurs in the People’s Republic of China (PRC).
Urumqi continues to top the daily updated charts of the most polluted (major) cities in China (most of which, I believe, are likely also the most polluted cities of the world). This one was released at 17:00 today (March 3rd), during which the pollution index of Urumqi reached 526. To give you a sense of how bad this is, the second most polluted city at 17:00 today, Shenyang (of Liaoning province, seen in blue below), was only at 216, less than half of Urumqi’s. Stay well, if you’re in Urumqi.
