September 24, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


"Our job is to show that what you are wearing is connected to the worst crime against humanity of today." In a few words, MEP Raphael Glucksmann captured why Europeans must act to end Uighur forced labour.

The European Union and European governments have an opportunity to work multilaterally to end transnational companies' operations with suppliers in China's Uighur region.

By doing so, Europeans will take a meaningful step towards ending complicity with an ongoing genocide.
