China's cotton picking slaves

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

China is forcing hundreds of thousands of Uighurs and other minorities into hard, manual labour in the vast cotton fields of its western region of Xinjiang, according to new research seen by the BBC.  

Based on newly discovered online documents, it provides the first clear picture of the potential scale of forced labour in the picking of a crop that accounts for a fifth of the world’s cotton supply and is used widely throughout the global fashion industry.

Those who are becoming wealthy in THIS nation by enabling the CCP should someday have to, along with their children, experience everything these slaves are experiencing today.

The U.S. government announced Wednesday that it will halt imports of cotton and tomatoes from the Uighur region of China in its most sweeping action yet to pressure the Communist Party over its campaign against ethnic minorities.

Officials said Customs and Border Protection will use its authority to block products suspected of being produced with forced labor to keep out cotton, tomatoes and related products from the Xinjiang region of northwest China.

I think the cotton block might hurt more than the tomato one. Tomato product is at 10 mil, but U.S. imports is 2.4 bil. That 10 mil is probably just gonna be shifted to other countries for processing. Italy imports a lot, they might pick up some of those tomatoes and export more product to the U.S..

In parting shot, Trump administration declares China's repression of Uighurs 'genocide'

"After careful examination of the available facts, I have determined that the PRC, under the direction and control of the CCP, has committed genocide against the predominantly Muslim Uighurs and other ethnic and religious minority groups in Xinjiang," Pompeo said in a statement.

"I believe this genocide is ongoing, and that we are witnessing the systematic attempt to destroy UIghurs by the Chinese party-state," he added.

Not to worry President Biden will fix everything.

Not likely that any American President can fix it, at least not alone.  I think we wanted to retire as world policeman.
