Call to Action: Ask your MP to vote to recognise the Uyghur Genocide

Posted on Thursday, April 15th, 2021

MPs will be asked to support this motion, proposed by Nus Ghani MP: 

“This House believes  that the Uyghurs  and other ethnic and religious minorities in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region are suffering Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide and calls upon the Government  to act to fulfil their obligations under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide and all relevant instruments of international law to bring it to an end.” 

🔸 ACT NOW! Please send a message to your MP today using this suggested template urging your MP to support the motion recognising the Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide inflicted on Uyghurs and other minorities.

(Please don’t feel you have to use it. It may be more powerful to personalise your message to your MP, or example referring to your own people’s experience of genocide or persecution or acknowledging your MP’s previous activities on issues around Uyghurs or other human rights issues)

🔸 Meet with your MPs and raise these concerns in person.

🔸 Spread the word about these actions to your family, friends and colleagues on social media and via email
