Xinjiang: A Report and Resource Compilation — Qiao Collective
www.qiaocollective.com

Western governments have levied false allegations of genocide and slavery in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. A closer look makes clear that the politicization of China’s anti-terrorism policies in Xinjiang is another front of the U.S.-led hybrid war on China.

I use this for my resource server on Discord, actually.

Neat!

There was a massive Google Docs repository which had tons more than Qiao did but I think Google nuked it which sucks. And people claim that China is the totalitarian surveillance state smh.

I know exactly which one you’re talking about; there’s still at least two more that are up though.

Well that’s something.

Feel free to post them up if you would like, I’m just planning to use this sub as a repository for all the bits and pieces I’ve found along the way so if you have anything good don’t be afraid to share it.

Also I’d encourage people to shift away from Google for this stuff wherever possible. I’m showing my ex-anarchist tendency here but I know RiseUp hosts an Etherpad instance here where you can create collaborative documents but I’m not sure if it’s missing any features. Note that documents automatically have an expiration date and you can set them for up to 1 year which is kind of a pain but on the other hand it’s a predictable deletion which means that you can do something about it, unlike Big Google randomly vanishing all your hard work.

I wonder if Lemmygrad would be interested in hosting an Etherpad instance for exactly this sort of purpose? I’ve been meaning to put in a request…

Hmmm, I use CryptPad right now. You’ll have to ask @muad_dibber@lemmygrad.ml yourself. I think that he’s the more responsive of the people that made this website. I think it was even his idea, but I’m not sure.

I think I like that one better, thanks for the recommendation!

Glad to hear that people are breaking away from Google Docs. I hope that more people realize that their work is at risk if it’s within the Google ecosystem.

Oh, absolutely.

Codimd is the successor to etherpad, it can do collaborative markdown really well, I even use it with wifey to do shared grocery / todo lists.

It does have a huge flaw tho, it has no permissions control, so if you were to open the doc up to editing by anyone, its wide open.

This is why using git to collaborate on docs is the best option, here’s one for the List of US atrocities.

The owner(s) have to explicitly approve the changes, and not only that, you get what’s called a document revision history: the who, what, and when history of a document / set of docs.

Example: https://github.com/dessalines/essays/blame/master/us_atrocities.md

Oh that’s really interesting to hear about. How do you make a fully-featured collaborative online document and not have permission control and revisions? That seems bizarre to me…

Looks like I’m finally gonna have to learn how to use Github, I guess.

This is a living document, it will be updated as new atrocities pour in.

oof

Yeah, I guess they made it with the idea of only being used by trusted people on a small scale, they really should have built a permissions system that’s better than the one they have.

But yeah git isn’t too tough to learn, certainly not as user friendly as google docs, but a lot more powerful and manageable.
