Fact and Fiction: a Chinese Documentary on Eastern Turkestan Terrorism

Shichor, Y. (2006). Fact and fiction: A Chinese documentary on Eastern Turkestan terrorism. In China and Eurasia Forum Quarterly (Vol. 4, No. 2, pp. 89-108). Link


This article provides, for the first time in public, an English summary and analysis of a 60-minute video documentary called “On the Spot Report: The Crimes of Eastern Turkestan Terrorist Power” (Dongtu kongbu shili zuixing jishi). The documentary was shown to the author in August 2002 on a visit to Xinjiang at the official invitation of the Xinjiang International Economic and Cultural Development Center and a transcript was also provided. This rare documentary reflects Beijing’s representation of “Eastern Turkestan terrorism,” and its efforts to spread this message through the author and the media.
