How Can I Help the Uyghurs?
DONATE TO THE CAUSE
Why Give to Stop Uyghur Genocide?
The on-going genocide against the Uyghurs is the biggest human rights emergency in the world, yet Stop Uyghur Genocide is run by a small team of three and a dedicated base of volunteers. We are up against the propaganda machine of the second-largest economy of the world. We need your help to fund our work raising awareness of the human rights violations taking place in the region and organising grassroots activities to bring an end to complicity in these atrocities.
Your money will get results. Our campaign has already created global publicity that has opened the eyes of the world to the horrific situation in the Uyghur Region. We have given voice to Uyghurs in the UK who have escaped the Regime, held corporations still operating in the region to account, and built awareness and engagement with the Uyghur crisis amongst British civil society, from faith communities to women’s organisations.
SIGN UP TO THE CAMPAIGN
Our campaign relies on the support of our network of volunteers in the UK and around the world. You can be an ally to the Uyghurs and others facing genocide by signing up to our newsletter.
We promise not to bombard you with emails but instead we’ll keep you up to date with the latest developments from the Uyghur Region and campaign news.
ASK YOUR MP TO SPEAK UP FOR THE UYGHURS
You can help the Uyghurs by asking politicians to speak up for the Uyghur community.
The attacks against Uyghurs aren’t just wrong, they are a crime. After the Second World War, the world’s nations came together to declare that the attempt to destroy a people was a specific crime: genocide. These nations declared that when genocide was happening, they had a responsibility to prevent it. Today Stop Uyghur Genocide works to make sure that ‘Never Again’ is a promise kept rather than a platitude from politicians.
More than a hundred MPs have signed the Parliamentary Pledge for Uyghurs, which calls on the UK Government to meet its obligations to protect the Uyghurs from genocide. Ask your MP to sign the pledge today.
BE AN ACTIVE CONSUMER
You can use your power as a consumer to demand that major UK brands move their production from the Uyghur region. In the Uyghur region in northwest China, millions of Muslims have been imprisoned in a huge network of camps. Factories are built inside these camps where Uyghurs are used for slave labour, or they are transferred to work in factories hundreds of miles away from their homes. The use of Uyghur forced labour in the huge cotton industry that supplies major world brands is a global crisis. It is crucial that consumers use their collective power to bring this shameful complicity to an end.
One of the most important ways you can help is by speaking up for Uyghurs where you are.
We are building a campaign across British society: as consumers, on campuses and in communities. You can help by organising for Uyghurs in your University, place of worship, or trade union.
We have produced a campaign toolkit with simple ways you can help bring people together to help Uyghurs. From how to hold a meeting on the Uyghur genocide to advice on what you can do in your Church, Mosque, Temple or Synagogue, you’ll find lots of useful tips in our activist’s guide.
