The Chinese state is waging a racist campaign to forcibly assimilate the Uyghur people and erase their nation and culture. It has imprisoned more than a million in concentration camps; imposed suffocating surveillance; separated children from families; suppressed political dissent, cultural expression and religious freedoms like owning a Quran; and forced contraceptive IUDs and sterilisation on women.
Now government programmes are forcibly sending Uyghur workers to toil in factories across China. Zara is one of dozens of global brands whose supply chains are linked to this forced labour. Others include Gap and Apple.
As London Fashion Week starts, corporate giants like Zara will be promoting themselves. We demand they sign the pledge at enduyghurforcedlabour.org, investigate their supply chains, publish everything, and completely end all connections to forced labour.
