A few months ago I made the decision to stop buying Chinese goods. It has been well documented that the Chinese Communist Party is committing genocide on one of its own minorities, the Uighur people, with one million imprisoned in forced labor camps says John Naish in an article on This is money.
Genocide on its own minorities
Expert evidence presented to Parliament has told of children being torn from families and women subjected to abhorrent abuse. So how could I possibly continue to support this monstrous regime? And I am not alone.
Avoiding Chinese goods
Last year a MailOnline survey found that half of Britons said they were trying to avoid buying Chinese goods. The poll reflects widespread concern about Britain’s reliance on Beijing. This has been stoked by anger at the Chinese government’s disastrous attempts to block news of the coronavirus as it emerged in Wuhan, and more recently by its vicious crackdown on democracy in Hong Kong.
Sporting celebrities have joined the clamor, including Demba Ba, the former Premier League striker, who called on football authorities to condemn China’s treatment of Uighur Muslims. Any such protest infuriates China’s leadership.
