EU to ban on products made by Uyghur forced labor

 

Uyghurian, Sep 16, 2021

 

 

The European Commission's president, Ursula von der Leyen, stated on Wednesday that the EU will propose a ban on products created with forced labor, emphasizing that human dignity and freedom are more essential than profit.

In a policy speech delivered in the European Parliament in Strasbourg, she stated: “Doing business around the world is good, global trade around the world is good and necessary, but can never be done at the expense of people’s freedom and dignity. We will propose a ban on products made with forced labor,”.

Uyghur activists reacted positively to the news, disseminating it widely and applauding the EU.
