Save Uighur Statement on the Xinjiang Police Files and “The Faces from China’s Uyghur Detention Camp”
The Save Uighur Campaign would like to recognize BBC News for the release of The…
The latest report titled “Uyghurs For Sale”, from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, reveals a vast network of companies complicit in the mass detention of Uighurs and other Turkic people. ASPI stated that it had found “27 factories in 9 Chinese provinces that are using Uyghur labor transferred from Xinjiang since 2017. Those factories claim to be part of the supply chain of 83 well-known global brands.”
The Fair Labor Association has also written a statement calling to an end of all forced labor in East Turkestan: “The Fair Labor Association (FLA) is deeply troubled by credible reports of forced labor and other violations of fundamental human rights in the Xinjiang region of China. We call for an immediate end to these violations and pledge to work collaboratively with governments, civil society, unions, and multilateral organizations to achieve this goal.”
Here are some of the 83 brands listed in the report as being connected to those factories using forced labor.
Demand Nike and other listed companies to stop sourcing their products from Uighur forced labor.

Dear Mr. Donahoe,
It is a deep concern that I have learned Nike is a recipient of Chinese products manufactured using enslaved labor by forced transfer of Uighur workers from East Turkestan (Xinjiang) to labor camps in different parts of the country. It is bothersome that millions of people, including myself, may be owning clothing that are made by modern day slaves.
Your company’s response to the Washington Post, by your spokesperson has been disappointingly inadequate. Please immediately end any sourcing from companies complicit in using forced labor, and discontinue any business relations with them.
We look forward to seeing a prompt apology and response.
