Uighur brands genocide

Global fashion brands are being accused of complicity in the mass repression of China’s Muslim community. Zara, H&M, Nike, Calvin Klein, Gap, Tommy Hilfiger and many more get their supplies of cotton from factories that exploit the minority of Uighur.

The region, Xinjiang, is where the Muslim-majority lives and is also where the cotton gets sourced. Being so, human rights protestants and activists have started to raise awareness around the issue on social media. Based on credible proofs and investigations, they have named over 38 companies that are clearly connected to the modern slavery of Uighur.

The truth is, those companies are taking part of a horrible scene in which the Chinese government has been doing terrible acts for at least one million people, their fault? being Muslim.

China has put them in prison and forced them to work for a very little wage and sometimes for nothing. The majority of brands have been ignoring this devastating global issue for months since protestants started to put a light on them, and the only way to stop the exploitation is by them leaving the region and cut every relationship with the specific region.

Raphaël Glucksmann, activist and EU parliament member has started a campaign on social media to raise awareness around the issue and has started the fight couple of months ago to address several messages to the French government in order to stop the exploitation.

“The political genocide against the Uighur population has started in 2017 and till now, you have never publicly evoked  the issue within the Chinese government”
