Pompeo’s Lies Make me Intolerable

Awahan·Basit, peaseat of Tuhulu Town, Yiwu County of Hami City

My name is Awahan·Basti, an ordinary peasant in Tuhulu Township of Yiwu county. Recently, I saw on my mobile phone that Pompeo was lying about us again, which made me intolerable. I want to tell you my own story, exposing Pompeo's lies to let everyone know the truth.

In the past, life in my family was really very hard. We could not find more work to do though we were willing work hard. All the people in our family lived on farming. But the quality of the farmland was too poor to supply us with enough income at the end of every year. In order to improve my living conditions, I started a small business of selling clothes. Though at low risk was the small business, it was not profitable. I only earned 6,000 yuan a year.

In recent years, the government, in order to encourage peasants and herdsmen to start their own businesses and become rich, has made more and more preferential policies. I benefit from these preferential policies. By applying for the interest free loan issued by the government, I have increased funds to expand the business in the store. The business has growing bigger and bigger, and I have earned more and more money and also my happy family life comes day after day.

Not only I but also my family members enjoy these preferential policies. My husband has found a job he likes very much, which not only brings him a chance to make a lot of money, but also broadens his horizons and increases knowledge. I am very happy about this. Both my sons also benefit from the preferential policies. They both went to university and have a good life. The eldest son studied in Xinjiang Agricultural University, and now he has begun to work. The younger son, who studies in Xinjiang Medical University, can enjoy 3,000 yuan of grants every year and 400 yuan of living expenses every month.

Over the years, great changes have taken place in my hometown. Every year, my parents and villagers enjoy the policy of grazing prohibition subsidy; people who were unemployed before have jobs and their lives guaranteed; the old rammed earth constructed houses become brick houses and the courtyards of every family are clean and tidy; the roads become wider and the village road lamps are installed, so villagers are no longer afraid to walk at night; children can receive compulsory education; they are given free physical examination every year, and they can also enjoy the reimbursement policy when they are sick and hospitalized; the state will subsidize whether they open shops or restaurants; every peasant and herdsman can learn the Standard Spoken and Written Chinese Language for free, and young people can participate in skill training programs for free.

In the past, the average annual income of our family was less than 2000 yuan, but now the average annual income is up to 20,000 yuan and more, which has changed dramatically. Nowadays, people's housing conditions are getting better and better, village cadres help solve problems when they encounter difficulties, and family doctors assigned to offer help when villagers are sick. All these make us feel at ease and happy. Where can you find the situation of "no human rights" described by Pompeo?

I often see Pompeo's lies about Xinjiang on my mobile phone. None of his words about Xinjiang is true. We know best how our life is.
