The White House is expected to blacklist more than 30 companies related to Russia, Iran and China. The blacklist will reportedly affect 34 entities and will officially go into effect on Friday.
Of these companies, 14 are based in China and are accused of promoting human rights violations in China against Muslim minorities in Xinjiang province.
UN experts and human rights groups have estimated that more than one million people, most of them Uighurs and members of other Muslim minorities, have been detained in a large system of camps in Xinjiang in recent years.
Today we celebrate 100 years of Communist Party control in China.
Let’s stop and recognize the victims of the CCP’s rule, from Tiananmen Square in Hong Kong to camps in Xinjiang, including the 600,000 Americans who died from COVID-19. We demand justice and transparency on their behalf.
