Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • Mass detention and genocidal acts against Uyghurs and other Turkic Muslims in concentration camps in Xinjiang, China;
  • Forced population control of females of Uyghur/Turkic Muslim descent in Xinjiang, China;
  • Coercive labour done by detainees of Uyghur/Turkic Muslim descent in Xinjiang, China;
  • The detainees, including children, are exposed to various forms of violation of fundamental human rights;
  • These include being exposed to physical, emotional, sexual abuse, invasive means of coercive population control and abortions, and forced labour done by detainees; and
  • The United Nations' definition of crimes against humanity include the murder, imprisonment, enforced sterilization of a group of people and the very Nazi-like detainment of Uyghur and other Turkic Muslims certainly falls in that category.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to impose the Magnitsky Act against the government of China for the detention of 2 million Uyghur and other Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang, China.
