New report details CCP’s use of Uyghur slaves in cotton industry.
U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement regarding a new report from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation’s Dr. Adrian Zenz that details the Chinese Communist Party’s exploitation of Uyghur slave labor in the cotton industry.
“Chairman Xi’s dictatorship is enslaving more than half a million Uyghurs in Xinjiang and forcing them to hand-pick blood cotton. The Chinese Communist Party is systematically oppressing the Uyghurs – enslaving them, ripping their families apart, and raping and forcibly impregnating women by non-Uyghur men. Americans cannot be corporate sponsors of slavery and genocide. We need to ban the importation of goods that depend on Uyghur slave labor."
