This important #bizhumanrights research shows what many German textile companies denied: Their clothes do contain cotton from Xinjiang - a region that is known for forced labour. #Germany's judicial authorities should acknowledge these findings and finally open investigations!
Chemical analyses, bills of lading, cotton smuggled in a carpet and satellite images. It took us quite a bit to answer one simple question: Is there fabric from potential forced labor in clothing made by German companies? @aktenberger theguardian.com/world/2022/m…

Das ECCHR reichte schon im Sept '21 Strafanzeige gegen Textilunternehmen ein. Diese behaupteten, keine Baumwolle aus Xinjiang zu beziehen. Chinas Regierung unterdrückt dort die Minderheit der Uighuren & zwingt sie zu Zwangsarbeit in der Textilindustrie. ecchr.eu/fall/china-zwangsar…
