Will you support our legal StraTEGY to ban the import of forced-labour cotton?
Millions of Uyghurs are being detained and forced to produce cotton for our high street stores.
The Chinese detention programme is the largest since World War II. It aims to eradicate the culture of the Uyghurs, a minority group in China. Detainees are subjected to torture, abuse and forced labour. International governments have officially declared this programme to be genocide and crimes against humanity.
The UK and Ireland are currently permitting a flood of imported cheap cotton produced by Uyghur detainees to cross their borders. The entire high street cotton trade is implicated.
Will you stand with Uyghurs and support our legal action to ban the import of forced-labour cotton?
