They tell of brutal bashings and beatings for prisoners who refuse to give up Islam or announce their loyalty to the ruling Chinese Communist Party. Australia can no longer be complicit in these historic crimes by continuing to do business with this regime.

We hope and pray they will learn that of all the nations of the world, Australia stood up in the face of this genocide.
We therefore ask the House to hold a vote to cancel the China–Australia Free Trade Agreement in response to the Chinese government’s genocidal campaign against Uyghurs.
