Stand up for the Uyghurs! Pass S-204!
This bill in the Parliament of Canada amends the Customs Tariff to prohibit the importation of goods made in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region by forced labor.
China has been abusing the Uyghurs for decades. Uyghurs are subjected to 24-hour-a-day surveillance, forced sterilization, organ harvesting, torture, and forced to work in concentration camps. About 1.8 million people are living in these conditions in Xinjiang.
The Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) human rights abuses are systematic and widespread. China's treatment of the Uygurs is the largest internment of an ethnoreligious group since the Holocaust. The United States has declared this a genocide.
It is past time for Canada to act.
Please write your senator and ask them to support this important bill.
