At Labour Party conference, shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry made a speech denouncing tyrants all across the world, Putin, Bolsonaro, Duterte, Trump, and the rest.
All good. But one notable omission: the biggest. Xi Jinping, ruler of China.
As the election campaign happens, Xi Jinping is repressing the democratic revolt in Hong Kong, and locking up something like one million Uyghurs in “re-education” camps in north-west China.
Labour Party conference passed an emergency motion in solidarity with the Uyghurs.
We want Labour to stand for self-determination for the people of Hong Kong and for the Uyghurs.
