Elon Musk asked to prove Tesla vehicles aren’t manufactured with forced labor of Uighur Muslims in China’s Xinjiang region
Democrat lawmakers have joined Republicans in scolding Elon Musk for opening a Tesla showroom in Xinjiang, where China is accused of slavery and genocide against Uighur Muslims.
In a rare showing of bipartisan agreement, two Democratic congressmen who oversee trade wrote to Mr Musk demanding to know whether Tesla sourced its materials and products from forced-labour camps in Xinjiang.
James, I think there is, without doubt, a discriminatory ethnic campaign against the Uyghur, as there is against Tibetans, to remove their cultural connections and that can be considered as genocide according to the UN definition.
Labour and re-education camps do exist but death camps, I have never seen any evidence of their existence.
