‘We Have a Right to Know How Our Products Are Made’: Activist Fighting Xinjiang Forced Labor

Pierre Bussiere is a French activist who launched a “shame” campaign to pressure companies that sell products made with forced labor in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR), where authorities are believed to have held up to 1.8 million Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities in a vast network of internment camps since early 2017. Amid increasing international scrutiny, detainees have been “graduated” and sent to work at nearby factories as part of an effort to label the camps “vocational centers,” although those held in the facilities regularly toil under forced or coerced labor conditions.

Bussiere recently reached out to French football star and Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann, who has a sponsorship deal with Chinese tech powerhouse Huawei following a report by the Washington Post that said the company is likely testing facial recognition technology to surveil Uyghurs in the XUAR. Griezmann cut ties with the firm last week, citing “strong suspicions” that it is involved in the repression of Uyghurs in the region. Huawei has denied that it supports the use of technology to discriminate against minority groups and has invited Griezmann to discuss its human rights record.

RFA’s Uyghur Service recently spoke with Bussiere about his campaign, his interaction with Griezmann, and his plans for future actions.

RFA: Could you please explain your “shame” campaign? What is it all about?

Bussiere: The idea is to publicly call out brands that benefit from Uyghur forced labor. As citizens and consumers, we have a right to know how our products are made and to refuse that they come from crimes against humanity. Thanks to the pressure of public opinion and citizens, brands are taking public commitments to cut ties with their incriminated suppliers.

RFA: Antoine Greizmann recently renounced his involvement with Huawei on Instagram. How did it happen?

Bussiere: Antoine Griezmann had a powerful and important partnership with Huawei. We could see large ads of him with Huawei products from our social media to the Parisian subway. Last week, when the Washington Post published that Huawei was strongly suspected of having tested AI software with a “Uyghur alert” for the police, we thought about a way to spread the information and to harm the reputation of their brand.

We posted an open letter to Griezmann on @ouighours.news, telling him about these new findings and kindly asking him to step down from this partnership, as a French citizen and one of the greatest French soccer players, and to support Uyghurs’ rights. We also took the example of the singer Zara Larsson who ended her partnership with the firm a few months ago. More than 10,000 followers of @ouighours.news tagged him in the comments and shared the post so he could see it. His brother quickly replied and said that they were taking the matter very seriously. Only two days later did Griezmann publish the famous statement, saying that he cut ties with Huawei due to these findings.

RFA: What are your future plans?

Bussiere: We are currently doing the same type of campaign with another international soccer player … We plan to call out all the public figures who have a partnership with this firm.

How to identify Fake News or Messages on Social Media 

Beware of Fake News and Fake Messages on Social Media

Always follow websites or social media platforms of traditional media outlets whether newspapers, magazines,Television News Channels or Radio Stations and authentic online only media outlets.They still maintain journalism excellence and stress on reportorial talent.On the other hand, fake news websites run by people with non journalism background and promote their own ideology with fake news and disinformations and obviously conspiracy theories.

But unfortunately mainstream media also manipulates news to establish their story angle.There were various instances when News papers and TV Channels promoted fake news/conspiracy theories in the form of out of context or manipulated pictures/videos and distorted informations.

Always check the URL of any website.Some fake news websites look like the orginal and popular one the same layout,Logo but if you check the URL you may find extra words like if the orginal website's URL is www.xxx.com the duplicate one might be www.xxx.com.co or something like that so first check the URL for authentic informations.

Check whether photos are original or photoshopped.Check Google images for authenticity.You can find help from Google Reverse Images search.

Check the news sources from other websites whether they picked up the story or not.

Whether the website layout is little bit clumsy and obviously grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes and excessive use of Sex related and sensational and hate stories.Because sex and hate sells.

Follow official websites relating to COVID-19

WHO Clarifies the disinformation about the virus:
COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates
Cold Weather and Snow can not kill the new coronavirus
Taking a Hot Bath Does Not Prevent COVID-19
COVID-19 Can not be transmitted through mosquito bites

Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. Spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth)

According to World Health Organization (WHO): Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth . If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.

Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.

Follow WHO guidelines

www.who.int

When you follow COVID-19 related news and messages from social media then check and recheck it before consuming it.Follow journalism mantra: if your mother says she loves you, check it out.

Most of the messages or informations quote different organizations like WHO, UNICEF, UNDP,Cambridge University  or other well known institutes,organizations or individual to authenticate the messeges.Check official websites of these organizations  if stories are repeated there

Forwarding messages from unknown sources or little known sources, it would be better to ignore it.

Check whether any logo like UNICEF or WHO or other organizations used in the messages which look similar to original logo.

These type of messages are full of Grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes which are quite uncommon in original messages.

Some fake messages pretend to be real one like unofficial Twitter handle of international media organizations like BBC,CNN,Washinton Post, New York Times-check the official Twitter handles of media outlets.

You can identify fake messages if the message requests you to share it.

Beware of Fake News or Fake Photos/Videos Relating to Communal Hatred

Always check the fact checking sites if you have some doubts about the authenticity of any information or picture.

The Same Method Applies to You Tube Videos Check the Source the credibility of the Source.To Check Fake You Tube Videos Check and Recheck the sources. Does the person have the legal right to the video posted? Did that person capture the video? Whether it has been altered?

But due to advancement of technology we can not really wipe out fake news.According to experts advent of  Artificial Intelligence(AI) some companies small or big one developing  technologies that can  lay digitally created script to anybody's voice  even words,sentences never said by the person.Even they a.re developing a technology which can create fake video footage,images,audios like originals.So be cautious! Rumour-mongers are active everywhere whether in physical world or cyber world.

Without evidence or with fake evidence, a conspiracy theory will always remain a conspiracy theory.
