The Government must ban the importation of products from Xinjiang and other parts of China that are produced in whole or part by forced labour.
The systematic oppression of the Uyghur people by the Chinese Government is undeniable, and the exploitation of detained Uyghurs as a captive labour force is clear. More than one million people have been rounded up and put in massive internment camps across Xinjiang. Mass surveillance, restrictions on free movement, and widespread persecution of the Uyghur people have been confirmed beyond doubt.
We must take a strong stand against the well documented abuse of hundreds of thousands of Uyghur people in Xinjiang. It would be a human rights disgrace if Australia, under our free trade agreement with China, turned a blind eye to profiteering from what amounts to slave labour.
Please take a minute to stand up for freedom, democracy and human rights and sign this petition.
