US: Stop importing forced labor products!



Monday, October 21, 2019

(Washington, D.C.—Oct. 21, 2019) 37 organizations penned a letter last week, asking the U.S. to stop importing products of forced labor from China.

The letter cited “significant evidence of China’s systematic use of forced labor in Xinjiang and other parts of the country.” It referenced strategies China has put into place, resulting in the mass imprisonment of Uyghur (also spelled “Uighur”) people.

Some of those people have been made to work in factories with little to no pay, and many have reported undergoing torture and being forced to swear allegiance to the Communist Party.

Burberry, Target, Calvin Klein, Armani, Gucci, Hugo Boss, Uniqlo, and Olymp all receive supplies from companies involved in China’s use of Uyghur labor.

The letter read, “In the case of Xinjiang, the evidence is clear. Forced labor is used so ubiquitously throughout Xinjiang that it is difficult to separate Xinjiang's forced labor economy from its regular economy. And because Xinjiang is by far the major supplier for China's apparel supply chain, the U.S. government must assume that any cotton products sourced from China are a product of China's cotton gulag.”

ChinaAid signed the letter, which can be read here.
