Imagine being taken away from everything you've ever known because of your culture. Imagine being forced away from your family and friends, not knowing if you'll ever see them again. Imagine being forcefully stripped of your personal belongings, including your clothes. Imagine being forced to taken classes in which you have to memorise praise for the man who has probably ordered the extinction of your culture, and being verbally or physically remanded if you fail to memorise it in a certain time. Imagine being forcibly sterilised, and the people who did this claim it is 'emancipation'. Imagine being raped and tortured just for existing.

If you feel like you've already heard this before, you probably have.

In recent years, China has been building 're-education' camps in the western region of Xinjiang. About a million ethnic Uighurs - a majority Muslim, Turkic ethnic group - have been detained, removed from their homes and sent to these camps. These people are then stripped of their belongings, their clothes and sometimes are having their hair cut short. They are then made to memorise passages that praise Xi Jinping and the communist government. They spend hours a day doing this. Then, at night, women are taken out of their cells, raped and tortured.

China's Stance on Xinjiang

American Declaration of Genocide

Rape and Torture Claims

These people are being detained, stripped of their belongings, their culture, and being forced to undergo 're-education' for nothing more than following their religion and adhering to their way of life. This is nothing short of cultural genocide, and we may have to watch as the Uighur culture is forcefully stripped away from men, women and children.

This is not okay, and I believe we can do something to change it.

I'm calling on the government of the United Kingdom, and any other government who heeds these words, to take definitive action against the Chinese government, something more than just condemning this gross violation of human rights. Whether this is harsher sanctions or stopping trade, I'm just asking that the parliament takes decisive action before the damage is irreparable.

Please, help these people by signing this petition. It may not be a lot, but I hope that we can persuade governments across the world to take action against this oppressive regime.

This is not just a message to the UK government. I'm urging anybody from any other country to make petitions of your own and take it to your government, demanding the same thing. Please, let's work together to protect the people who are unable to protect themselves.
