Xi Jinping may meet with Biden in November. Let's hope this isn't another meeting in which the White House notes vague discussions about "human rights" but Biden makes no public condemnation of Beijing's repression such as the targeting of Uyghur Muslims.

The Chinese Communist Party said it would “close off residential communities” in the occupied Uyghur region of East Turkistan, which the Party calls Xinjiang, on Wednesday after an influx of tourists allegedly triggered an outbreak of Chinese coronavirus.

Creatives, check out this campaign that hijacked the #Yeezy  x Gap launch to call out the fashion industry’s use of Uyghur forced labour. The reactive campaign by Taxi@VMLYR ) for the @HRF  landed a Wood Pencil in #PressOutdoor  this year. #dandad

Human Rights Lawyer Emma Reilly reveals that the UN is actively sharing the names of Uyghur dissidents with the Chinese Government, telling Maajid Nawaz the actions of the UN here are 'criminal.' @MaajidNawaz 

This is an astonishing piece by a very brave Uyghur writer:

The White House issued an “emergency declaration” that stops Commerce from punishing foreign solar panel companies who violate U.S. law by using Chinese government subsidies, Uyghur slave labor and dirty coal production. Shameful.

Elon Musk has a Tesla factory in China and he wants to sell more cars there, as many China observers note. What happens if Beijing leans on him about say, a Uyghur or Hong Kong activist account? Or about Chinese disinformation bots leveraging this platform?

A hijab-wearing Muslim student was harassed by parents after her graduation speech. Huda's speech, which was approved by the school, expressed the importance of speaking up against injustices in Palestine and against Uyghur Muslims.

With my signature, the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act, which imposes sanction on foreign individuals and entities responsible for human rights abuses in China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous region, goes to the White House.

BREAKING: The House just passed my bill to hold China accountable for its human rights violations against over 1M Uyghur Muslims held in camps, subjected to “reeducation campaigns”, forced labor & total surveillance. China must take responsibility for these barbaric acts.
