  • China is dumping near the Philippines.

  • Protests in Cuba are freaking out the Chinese Communist Party

  • And the US issues a warning to companies in Hong Kong.

  • That and more on this week's China news headlines.

  • Welcome to China Uncensored, I'm Chris Chappell.

  • So, China is involved in territorial disputes with all its neighbors in the South China

  • Sea.

  • Particularly the Philippines.

  • But to show who's number 1, China is taking a number 2.

  • That's right, Chinese ships are dumping human waste in disputed territorial waters.

  • That's according to Simularity, , an AI-based satellite image analysis firm.

  • Satellite images captured hundreds of Chinese ships off the Spratly Islandswhich are

  • near the Philippines.

  • And those Chinese ships left behind, uhh, refuse.

  • Yes, Chinese ships have dumped so much poop in the South China Sea, you can see it from

  • space.

  • Over 200 Chinese ships were spotted here in a single day.

  • But Simularity found over the past 5 years, the untreated sewage from all these Chinese

  • ships has causedalgae blooms that have damaged coral reefs and threatened fish in

  • an unfolding catastrophe”.

  • According to Liz Derr , the head of Simularity, “When the ships don't move, the poop piles

  • up.

  • The hundreds of ships that are anchored in the Spratlys are dumping raw sewage onto the

  • reefs they are occupying.”

  • These ships are likely part of China's maritime militia.

  • Technically civilian ships, but in practice, an extension of the People's Liberation

  • Army.

  • Clearly waging war by other means.

  • The Philippines has launched a...probe...into China's sewage-dumping.

  • I feel pretty bad for anyone on the investigation team.

  • Again, “It is so intense you can see it from space.”

  • I guess you could say China is literally dumping on other countries' territorial claims.

  • Speaking of territorial disputes, 5 years ago, a ruling by an international tribunal

  • in the Hague rejected China's claims in the South China Sea.

  • Which of course Beijing has completely ignored and the international community has done nothing

  • about.

  • But for the five year anniversary, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is, well doing more

  • of the same nothing.

  • He said in a statement, “We call on the PRC to abide by its obligations under international

  • law, cease its provocative behavior, and take steps to reassure the international community

  • that it is committed to the rules-based maritime order that respects the rights of all countries,

  • big and small.”

  • Yeah, that'll show 'em!

  • That's basically been the driving force of the Biden Administration's China policyget

  • the Chinese Communist Party to play by the international rules.

  • But the Party has never done that.

  • The Party will never do that.

  • But maybe if Canada calls for it too, then the Party will cave!

  • Well it was a nice ocean while we had it.

  • A Chinese spy ship appears to be positioning itself to spy on US-Australian war games.

  • The war games are called Exercise Talisman Saber.

  • It's the largest bilateral military training exercise between the US and Australia.

  • It happens every two years.

  • Australia's Defence Minister doesn't seem too worried about the Chinese Spy ship, since

  • there's always a Chinese spy ship.

  • He told ABC, “The presence of similar vessels did not detract from Talisman Sabre 2017 or

  • Talisman Sabre 2019, and we are confident that it will not impede this year.”

  • But I got to say, I actually don't blame China for spying this time.

  • I also want to know how Australia trained all those kangaroos to sail a ship.

  • And after the break, China responds to the massive protests in Cuba.

  • Welcome back.

  • Cuba has erupted in protests of the Cuban Communist Party's authoritarian rule.

  • And the regimes of Russia, China, and Iran are warning the US not to intervene.

  • I mean, it would be tragic to lose another country to freedom.

  • China is, of course, one of Cuba's biggest allies.

  • US Senator Marco Rubio, a Cuban American, accused China of building Cuba's internet

  • censorship system.

  • Which couldn't have been too hard to do considering people were only legally allowed

  • to have internet at home starting in 2019.

  • That's right, the Cuban Communist Party didn't let its citizens have private WiFi

  • networks until 2019.

  • And even today, the internet is censored and you have to get a permit.

  • And it's all because of...US sanctions of course.

  • Yes, the Cuban government is saying all the problems people are protesting are a result

  • of US sanctions.

  • Definitely not, “the country's Soviet-style, centrally planned economy and its hesitation

  • to adopt market-oriented reforms”.

  • Or the way the Cuban regime arrests, beats, and kills protesters.

  • No, you see, when the Cuban protesters shoutdown with communism”, what they actually

  • mean isdown with the US.”

  • My favorite Chinese state-run media, the Global Times , saidThese actions of social violence

  • are part of the unconventional war scheme that US governments have been applying against

  • Cuba to provoke the long-awaited 'regime change.'”

  • Again, the Communist Party has done nothing wrong.

  • I feel like that's a message the Global Times is mainly trying to get Chinese people

  • to listen to.

  • So they don't get any ideas.

  • The US has blacklisted 23 more Chinese companies over abuses in Xinjiang

  • Of the 23 companies added to the blacklist, the Commerce Department accused 14 of direct

  • involvement in human rights abuses in Xinjiang, five of 'directly supporting' the Chinese

  • military's 'modernization programs,' and four of violating previous US sanctions

  • by doing business with blacklisted companies.”

  • I'm happy to say this is one tradition the Biden Administration has carried over from

  • the previous administration.

  • China has of course said it will retaliate.

  • No details were given.

  • Because of course, there's nothing the Chinese Communist Party can do about it.

  • China can't sanction the US.

  • Well, it has sanctioned US officials.

  • But that was pretty meaningless.

  • It's not like Mike Pompeo has a lot of assets in Chinese banks.

  • Speaking of ganging up on the Chinese Communist Party, 21 countries have formed

  • theMedia Freedom Coalitionand are specifically criticizing the Hong Kong government

  • for shutting down the pro democracy newspaper Apple Daily.

  • Apple Daily was forced to shut down after the Hong Kong government froze its assets

  • and arrested a bunch of people.

  • You know, normal stuff.

  • Hong Kong authorities have also arrested 5 more people in an alleged bomb plot.

  • Last week they arrested 9.

  • Police accused them ofplanning to manufacture and plant explosives around the city, including

  • in courts, cross-harbor tunnels and trash cans.”

  • There's definitely no way the Hong Kong government would be using alleged terrorism

  • as an excuse to crush individual civil liberties in the city.

  • No regime has ever done something like that.

  • China is also slamming the sinister US, for several reasons, including Hong Kong.

  • The Chinese Foreign Ministry denounced a planned White House warning to American

  • businesses in Hong Kong.”

  • He said, “The US side has confounded black and white by smearing the National Security

  • Law for [Hong Kong] and Hong Kong's business environment in a bid to mislead American and

  • other international enterprises in Hong Kong.”

  • Yeah, just because American businesses in Hong Kong will be completely at the mercy

  • of the Chinese Communist Party, that's no reason to warn them about it.

  • They might get scared and leave.

  • But China is also concerned about a Digital Trade Deal the US is pushing with countries

  • in the Indo Pacific.

  • Imagine if those countries had alternatives to working with the Chinese Communist Party.

  • As China Daily says, “These deals invariably serve the US' bid to defend its hegemony.”

  • To the signatory countries, these US-dominated agreements are more like shackles restricting

  • trade and their freedom of cooperation.”

  • Yeah, no country has the right to put shackles on anyone or restrict their freedom.

  • Except China.
