UK to impose rules to target forced labor by Uighurs in China’s Xinjiang

According to the UK Foreign Secretary, British companies are required to meet new requirements which have been set by the government asking companies to show their supply chains do not use forced labor during the process. Failure to do so will result in fines for the companies. The decision was taken so as to avoid human rights abuses in the Xinjiang region in China against the Uighur people.

Well if it's enforced, that's alot of big names out of business in the UK. I'm all for it don't get me wrong, but we have issues with forced labour on our own soil, so the odds of keeping track of the slaves in China is unlikely.

Problem number 1, mainstream media LOVES China and wont ever acknowledge any wrong doing by suppressing their minority group. Problem number 2, many of these companies make so much money they'll gladly pay a 100k fee to make 80 million. Its like when they fine these big pharma or tech companies that are worth billions yet fine them like 60k. You really think that hurts them? Nice that youre doing something but it should be way more strict if you actually want change.

It won't change much with how things are, but it's a point worth making, I suppose. China still endorses slavery, and countries should be publicly opposing China for it more. Maybe we can make more steps after we see how this goes. 🤷‍♂️ Too early to tell.
