China has accused the Five Eyes, an intelligence-sharing alliance between Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, of being an “axis of white supremacy.” “They have formed a US-centred, racist, and mafia-styled community, wilfully [sic] and arrogantly provoking China and trying to consolidate their hegemony as all gangsters do,” reads an editorial piece in the Global Times, a Chinese state-run news outlet. “They are becoming a racist axis aimed at stifling the development rights of 1.4 billion Chinese.” The article comes in response to Canada’s successful motion in parliament to recognize the actions of the Chinese government against their ethnic Uyghur minority as a genocide. While the motion received support from all parties in Parliament, the cabinet of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau chose to abstain from the vote. Up to two million Uyghurs have been interned in concentration camps run by the Chinese government.
