It seems that unrest, and attempted revolution is becoming widespread as of late. First the incredibly emotional stories coming from Tehran, and now riots in XinJiang, one of China's western provinces that has a pretty turbulent history.
The first reports I heard were several hundred wounded and roughly 120 dead when local ethnicities clashed with Han Chinese because of the oppression that these minority ethnic groups typically endure.
I do live in China, but I don't live in the region where the troubles are, so I don't know exactly how oppressed these people are, but XinJiang has a history of rioting and protest, as well as "terrorism" (I'm hesitant to use that word).
According to the news that I've been hearing the whole thing started basically over the deaths of several Uyghur workers at a factory somewhere in western China after a fist fight broke out between a group of Han, and a group of Uyghurs.
I don't know what is true or false in this situation because a lot of the news that I've been attempting to read has been blocked, some photos did make their way to my computer though via a friend of mine, and I want to share them with you all.
I don't want anyone to think that this is any sort of attempt to draw attention away from the problems in Tehran, or meant for shock value, I just thought since I had some information on it, and no one seemed to be talking about it I wanted to put it up here for discussion.
These photos are graphic and not for the weak of constitution.
