Around one million Uyghur Muslims are being held in “re-education camps” in Xinjiang, China. In reality, these camps are being used to imprison the Uyghur Muslim population with the aim of destroying the Uyghurs as a people.
The US and Canada have both repeatedly recognised China’s actions against the Uyghur Muslim population as genocide.
It is time that the UK do the same.
MEND calls on all MPs to stand in solidarity with the Uyghur people and survivors of genocide around the world and reaffirm their commitment to “never again”.
It is time to #CallitGenocide.
