  • China - Continuing human rights violations in Xinjiang Uighar communities


    End the Uigar genocide and concentration camps in China.


    A genocide is taking place- the likes of which have not been seen since 1945. Marginalized groups in China are being systematically concentrated in camps where they are 're-educated', sterilised and have had their organs harvested. This is not hyperbole, this is the hard truth. Millions of Uigar Muslims are being targeted by this regime.
    A senior British lawyer has stated that many of the over 1.5 million people in Chinese concentration camps have been murdered for this global organ trade worth billions of dollars.
    This must stop imminently, achieving this will require media attention, government policy and public support. Support this petition to spread awareness and get the attention of those with power and influence.

    Petition Impose sanctions on China over its treatment of Uyghur Muslims


    The UK Government plans to introduce “Magnitsky law”, a law which targets people who commit gross human rights violations. Through this law or alternative means, this petition urges the UK Government to impose sanctions on China for their human rights violations on the Uyghur people.

    More details
    Since 2017, there have been many reports of the “cultural genocide” of Uyghur Muslims, a minority Turkic ethnic group native to Xinjiang, China. They are subject to mass detention, mass surveillance, restriction of religious and cultural identities, as well as other gross human rights abuses. Over a million Uyghurs have been forced into "re-education" camps.
    In front of the United Nations in October 2019, pressure was placed on China regarding the treatment of Uyghurs during a joint statement from 23 countries. Despite this statement and growing public awareness, nothing substantial or concrete has been done to resolve the crisis and help the Uyghur people.

        Many of the world’s biggest fashion brands and retailers are complicit in the forced labour and human rights violations being perpetrated on millions of Uighur people in the Xinjiang region of northwestern China, says a coalition of more than 180 human rights groups.

        There is mounting global outrage over the atrocities being committed against the Uighur population in the region, including torture, forced separation and the compulsory sterilisation of Uighur women.
