The Xinjiang Cotton industry and sanctions

Postby Bao on Mon Mar 29, 2021 9:17 am

Xinjiang's population increased by 13.9% from 2010 to 2018 to 24.8 million, and the Uighur population increased by 25% to 12.7, with a much higher rate than the general birthrate in China. Some baseless allegations without any kind of base or proofs from companies about forced labor in Xinjiang have had great impact on the Chinese population. They all stopped buying things from H&M, and more companies as Nike and Burberry have great problems with their sale. They Chinese are all very much fed up with all of the fabricated lies from the West about Xinjiang.



Someone sensible about the "forced labor" and sanctions:

The detention is real!
When I was in Sweden, H&M was popular clothing destination so I am sure that mainalnd propaganda is gathering its citizens to "boycott" and attemtp to force Swden to stop showing solaridity for these sanctioned and detained Uighurs in Xinjiang.
The Central government (Beijing) strategy of sending Han citizens to areas it wants to control and maintain hegermony is well known (See Tibet!). Overwhelm Xinjiang and then say majority is under Han control has been the rule to enforce a One Mind propaganda campaign for rule. It hans't failed, yet.

Frontline did a segment on Xinjiang 3 or so months ago showing the use of facial recognition technology in China specifically western provinces in China and how that technology is being used i.e. crossing borders to USA, Canada as part of technology transfer and efficient control of the citizenry. ;D

The BBC's Beijing correspondent John Sudworth has left China and moved to Taiwan following pressure and threats from the Chinese authorities.
I could be wrong.
