Forced Uyghur Labour

In Xinjiang, millions of Uighurs are forced to work in factories producing clothing for the world's biggest brands. Human rights coalition said that cotton produced in the camps in Xinjiang could be found in one in five cotton products worldwide.

Guardian: "Despite these abuses, many of the world's leading clothing brands continue to source cotton and yarn produced through a vast state-sponsored system of detention and forced labour involving up to 1.8m Uighurs in prison camps, factories and farms. The forced labour system across the region is the largest internment of an ethnic and religious minority since the WW2"

84% of cotton produced in China and 20% of the world's cotton comes from the Uighur region. We probably have clothes that were partly manufactured by Uighurs forced to work in factories. We have to raise our voices and let the world know what is happening in China.
