Japanese brand “MUJI” still sells “Xinjiang cotton” clothing, but also set up a “Xinjiang cotton” area.

Hong Kong‘s popular Japanese brand “MUJI” (hereinafter referred to as: MUJI), in recent years to promote cotton clothing made of “Xinjiang cotton”, this station has been following up since November last year to report. MUJI’s stores in Hong Kong still sell clothing products made from “Xinjiang cotton”, and its mainland China MUJI official website even has a “Xinjiang cotton” section, indicating that the sale of clothing made from “Xinjiang cotton” The mainland China MUJI official website even set up a “Xinjiang cotton” section, indicating the regions or countries where “Xinjiang cotton” clothing products are sold.

Recently, the European Union, the United Kingdom, the United States and other countries have sanctioned Chinese Communist Party officials on the issue of human rights in Xinjiang, and many international brands have refused to use Xinjiang cotton. But no India still has not changed its policy, its reply to this station in February this year, said only to stop exporting Xinjiang cotton to the United States.

People interviewed said they will strike to buy, while others said they are not concerned

In response, many Hong Kong people interviewed said they were concerned about human rights in Xinjiang and would boycott MUJI’s products, not to encourage the unhealthy trend. Mr. Wen, a member of the public, expressed surprise that MUJI, a Japanese brand, used “Xinjiang cotton”.

Mr. Wen said: are surprised, did not think a Japanese company will use Xinjiang cotton in this way. If you know will not go to buy, always feel bad. At least not to create harm again.

Miss Ma also said that the public will refuse to buy products without India, and support other large brands to boycott Xinjiang cotton.

Miss Ma said: know of course will not buy, because Uniqlo and Nike are not selling Xinjiang cotton, she (no India) and did not pay attention to human rights issues in Xinjiang, so will not buy. I think we should pay more attention to environmental protection and human rights. In fact, as with yellow and blue stores, to know how their orientation is to choose.

However, Miss Liu, a member of the public said that continue to buy products without India.

Miss Liu said: because buying clothes is to buy clothes. (Are you aware that Xinjiang cotton may be related to forced labor?) Know. (Why will all continue to buy?) I don’t think the news is true or false, it may be propaganda, but I don’t pay attention.

Mr. Liang, a member of the public, believes that always many large brands in mainland China market share, it is difficult to completely avoid, but will try to refuse to buy products that violate human rights.

Yang Zhengxian: still waiting for the brand or split the market in China and Western countries

“Clean Clothes Campaign” emergency initiative Commissioner Yang Zhengxian that the new round of boycott “Xinjiang cotton” activities to hold a wait-and-see attitude, but also pointed out that no India has refused to boycott Xinjiang cotton, because the focus on the mainland Chinese market.

Yang Zhengxian said: Because MUJI (MUJI) in mainland China market has always been too large, it is clear that when a company relies on the mainland China market alone is vulnerable to the country’s ideology or Chinese Communist Party political influence. ZARA, for example, compromised and, in a round of attacks, decided to remove the Xinjiang cotton statement from its website.

The Chinese Communist Party on Wednesday (24) after the European and American sanctions suddenly “rehashed” launched a public offensive to attack and boycott brands that refuse to use Xinjiang cotton, including H&M, Nike, Adidas and Uniqlo, the celebrity spokesmen have also been the same day to “express their loyalty The celebrity spokespersons have also immediately “expressed their loyalty” to clear their relationship, including Eason Chan’s statement on Weibo, announcing the suspension of cooperation with Adidas, saying that they “resist any stigmatization of the Chinese Communist Party”.

Yang Zhengxian believes that the CCP is “systematically hyping” and “rationalizing” its actions in Xinjiang with national sentiment, and worries that more brands will no longer dare to speak out on the Xinjiang issue, and will even “kneel down (compromise) “.

Yang Zhengxian said: the official Chinese Communist Party fighters try to say that these companies are affected by anti-China sentiment in Western countries and forced to comply. The CCP tries to lead a new international logic and seize the dominance of international rules. I am also concerned that the Communist Youth League, Global Times, People’s Daily, etc., are making a lot of noise and stirring up national sentiment, and that the CCP hopes that by pressuring multinational companies, they will then tell them to let go of the issue of human rights in China by persuading their own countries.

Yang expects that the CCP’s public opinion attacks will continue, and that brands may split between the CCP and Western markets to protect local interests, as “criticism of Xinjiang issues in mainland China will be accused of distortion and incitement.
