Opinion: Helping Xinjiang and Tibet through divestment and self-government

(01/27/21 4:28pm)

These days, it is easy to lose track of what's happening outside the United States, yet China is still committing human rights violations in Xinjiang and Tibet with impunity. In fact, the pandemic has only increased restrictions. Fortunately, the international community is speaking out, with United Nations member states decrying abuses in Xinjiang and human rights experts raising concerns about the Panchen Lama's "enforced disappearance." As the collection of such condemnations grows, we would like to propose two more: divesting from businesses complicit in human rights violations and UN recognition as Non-Self-Governing Territories.
