‘Sorry, China, I’m not buying it’

Dear Marks & Spencer,

Over one million Uyghurs and other members of predominantly Muslim ethnic groups have been placed in ‘re-education camps’ in China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. Families are torn apart, with their children placed in state orphanages. 

Those released are often sent to clothing factories. One such Kazakh woman said: “The clothes factory was no different from the [re-education] camp. There were police, cameras, you couldn’t go anywhere.”

Credible reports have implicated dozens of Western brands, including M&S, in using these factories in their supply chains.

Will you ensure you don’t use Uyghur slave labour?

If you shop at M&S, add a sentence to the below email saying which branch you use (or marksandspencer.com) 

Write to M&S

Urge them to ensure that they don’t use Uyghur slave labour.

If you select Yes we will only contact you with updates on our work. Are you still sure you want to select No?
