Disney Is Making Concentration Camps Great Again After Shoutout To CCP Agency
In the past, Disney has said that in the future it will be hard to continue to film in Georgia because of their laws with restrictions on abortions. However, the company just openly thanked the Chinese Communist Party agency that is tasked with administering Uighur concentration camps.
It’s “very difficult” for @Disney to do business in Georgia after pro-life laws but completely fine in China, where a religious minority is currently being imprisoned and exterminated in concentration camps.

Disney has recently released the live-action remake of their movie Mulan and have received backlash for filming the movie in Xinjiang, the site of human rights abuses against Uighurs and other Muslim minorities.
The remake of Disney’s 1998 film about a young woman who disguises herself as a man to fight in the imperial army to protect her aging father has already come under fire. Actor, Kiu Yifei, who plays Mulan, said that she supports Hong Kong police violent crackdowns on pro-democracy protests.
The film was released on Friday and in the final credits, Disney offers a “special thanks” to eight government entities in Xinjiang, including the public security bureau in Turpan, a city east of Xinjiang where several re-education camps have been reported.
The film also thanked the “publicity department of CPC Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomy Region Committee”, the Chinese Communist party’s propaganda department in Xinjiang.
Activists calling for a boycott of the film are reporting that the public security bureau in Turpan – where part of the movie was filmed – oversees at least 14 internment camps in the area.
Suppose Mulan crew arrived at Turpan airport, and took highway G312 to Shanshan desert where they filmed, they could see at least 7 re-education camps.

It just keeps getting worse! Now, when you watch #Mulan, not only are you turning a blind eye to police brutality and racial injustice (due to what the lead actors stand for), you’re also potentially complicit in the mass incarceration of Muslim Uyghurs. #BoycottMulan https://t.co/dAMgZ6PWTD
