Here is a brief explanation of XPCC as a paramilitary corp of the Chinese government that was first established in the 1950’s and has been used as a colonial tool for decades. It exists autonomously from the XJ govt and exercises a strong influence over regional governance

Listed below are some of the human rights violations the XPCC has carried out, including forced labour programs that affect global supply chains today

While the US government recently sanctioned the XPCC, products like your cotton, tomatoes, electronics, and so on are still tainted with connections to this paramilitary organization

These are some of the actions we need to take in light of the disturbing issues the XPCC and the Chinese government are linked to. We must act with all the more urgency as more and more evidence of human rights violations come to light
