The problem

Uighur Muslims in China are being subjected to imprisonment, 're-education' and unjust treatment simply for being Muslim. Media reports suggest millions have been detained. 

The University of Nottingham has partnerships with Chinese cities such as Ningbo and proudly displays this on its buildings around campus. Yet, it speaks nothing of the injustices faced by the Uighurs. Whilst the university is not a political body, surely it needs to be associated with organisations who uphold the same values of diversity and equality?

The solution

Removing or at least postponing the partnership with Chinese cities sends a clear signal that the university is a place of tolerance and social justice. If it is to uphold these standards, then it cannot be seen to indirectly be supporting a regime that oppresses people simply because of their faith.

Why should you sign this petition?

Be the change you wish to see.

Do not stand by in silence while innocent people are being subjected to such inhumane treatment.
