Information

Uyghurs are a Turkic ethnic people, our homeland was colonised by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in 1949.

Our families have endured ongoing & escalating oppression until we've reached the state we're in today. At the hands of the CCP we're experiencing:



Culture

Content coming soon



More

Our intention was to curate information we deem to be trustworthy from an Uyghur diaspora perspective, and to feature selected content on our homepage that we will update every so often.

There are already a lot of resources online with ever more information, great projects, and campaigns becoming available.



Advocate: Write to your favourite brands & people

Sadly, many major brands are using forced Uyghur labour and/or sourcing their materials from forced Uyghur labour. Cotton sourced from East Turkistan (Xinjiang) is a big one.

Companies

I know it can be overwhelming to see this list. We're asking you to email your favourite brands and express your concern & dismay in their disregard for the value of human life. Your voice DOES make a difference.

A few brands have already pledged to make changes to their supply chain thanks to the work of Raphael Glucksman.

Your voice is what shapes this world.

Sample generic letter:

1. Go to your brand's website & through customer service ask:
"Where are your products made?"

2. After contact has been made, send this:

Thanks for your response.

As you are aware, nearly three million Uyghur Muslims are detained in camps in China. Tens of thousands of them are enslaved for the benefit of suppliers to large international companies.

A recent report by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) revealed that your brand is a part of this.

According to the report, Uyghurs laborers are forced to work by day, and “receive ‘vocational training’ and ‘patriotic education’” by night. These types of practices, combined with other kinds of mass suppression of Uyghurs by the Chinese government meet U.N. criteria for genocide.

Enslaved Uyghurs work in Xinjiang, and reports have also shown that they were transferred from internment camps in Xinjiang to work in factories across China.

I fear that your brand is inadvertently complicit in using enslaved Uyghur labor. I would like to know what measures you are taking to stop this abjectness.

Adidas and Lacoste have pledged to cut forced Uyghur labor from their supply chains, and I expect you to take concrete steps to cut forced labor from your supply chains, list your suppliers in a transparent manner, conduct a third-party investigation into the matter, and report these findings.

I am boycotting all of your products until concrete steps are taken, including proof and documentation of said steps, since I don’t want to be a part of this. An internal investigation is not enough.

Regards,

Companies

Sample generic letter to copy & paste as a DM and/or email:

Hey, I just wanted to reach out and say I absolutely adore your talent & your work. I’ve been a big fan for ages :)

I've noticed you're working with (insert brand name here.) On the outside it looks like you’re collaborating with a brand that doesn’t care about the genocide Uyghur people are facing.

It is heartbreaking to see you continue as though it’s business as usual.

You may already be having this conversation with your friends & closest people - I just wanted to share this with you in case it hadn’t been brought to your attention yet. See here for a comprehensive report: https://www.aspi.org.au/report/uyghurs-sale

I share my thoughts with you with sincere care for you, and a kind heart.

Thanks,
(Your name)
