The UK Parliament’s Business (BEIS) Committee has established an Inquiry on Forced Labour in UK Value Chains, and on 5 November it’s set to hold a public hearing. It will hear evidence that shows how Uyghurs and other Muslim-majority Turkic ethnic groups are being coerced into forced labour by the Chinese state, in factories supplyingContinue reading “Write to MPs: end Uyghur forced labour, end all forced labour!”
We have made the difficult decision to cancel the protest planned for 5 November. Instead of protesting, we’re asking all supporters to email and tweet your MPs about an inquiry by the parliamentary Business Committee into forced Uyghur labour in supply chains. Though we are confident that the safety measures we take on our protestsContinue reading “Monthly protest CANCELLED: act online instead”
1 October marks 71 years since the founding of the People’s Republic of China – and one year since Hong Kong police began using live ammunition on democracy protesters. Our call to action with our friends in Labour Movement Solidarity with Hong Kong (UK) has brought together internationalists both in the UK and abroad, including politicians, trade unionists, human rights campaigners, and many, many ordinary supporters. Now it’s time to take action!
Against Beijing & Washington,
for international workers’ solidarity! 1 October is the founding anniversary of the People’s Republic of China. And it’s one year since Hong Kong police began using live ammunition on democracy protesters. This protest is in solidarity with all those struggling under the repressive Chinese state and ruling class – and the corporate giants like Apple which are complicit in the oppression and exploitation.
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.

The persecution of the Uyghur people by the Chinese state continues and has deepened in the coronavirus crisis. In place of our usual monthly protest at the Chinese embassy in London, on 5 April we gathered online to discuss the situation with a range of campaigners. We have recorded the introductions from Nury Turkel, ProfContinue reading “WATCH: “Amid the Coronavirus Pandemic: Don’t forget the Uyghurs! With Nury Turkel, Dibyesh Anand & others””
