End Uyghur Forced Labour
The clothes factory was no different from the [internment] camp. There were police, cameras, you couldn’t go anywhere.
The Chinese government has rounded up an estimated 1 to 1.8 million Uyghurs and other Turkic and Muslim people in detention and forced-labour camps, the largest interment of an ethnic and religious minority since World War II. The atrocities in the Uyghur Region – including torture, forced separation of families, and the compulsory sterilisation of Uyghur women – are widely recognised to be crimes against humanity. A central element of the government’s strategy to dominate the Uyghur people is a vast system of forced labour, affecting factories and farms across the region and China, both inside and beyond the internment camps.
Over 180,000 people have co-sign a petition calling Hugo Boss to remove forced labour from its supply chain, join them.
