House of Commons labels Uighu repression “genocide”

Stuff reports:

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has been savaged for sucking up to China and turning her back on the Five Eyes alliance during a historic debate in which British MPs unanimously declared that China is carrying out genocide and crimes against humanity.

The vote on the motion addressing Beijing’s repression of the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province was carried unanimously, making it the first time in the Commons’ history that MPs have passed a genocide motion without dissent.

That astonishing (in a good way) the the motion passed without dissent.

We now have the US, UK, Canada, Netherlands all labelling it as genocide. The only way to get China to stop will be calling it out in such harsh terms.

The NZ Parliament should follow the US, UK and Canada and debate and vote on a motion declaring our opposition to what China is doing there. Forced sterilisations to try and reduce a population is wrong.
