On 6 August, the Braumiller Law Group in the US published a guide, saying that human rights violations run rampant within China’s Uyghur Autonomous Region (Xinjiang), targeting ethnic and religious minority groups such as Uyghurs, ethnic Kazakhs, and ethnic Kyrgyz.  It also says that US Customs and Border Protection has seized more than 1,200 shipments of goods entering the US with over $400 million of goods connected to forced labour practices.  The guide provides an explanation of “forced labour”, the legal risks and which industries are affected.
