WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the below statement following new reports revealing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is guilty of systematic sexual assault against Uyghur women.

 

Senator Rick Scott said, “The CCP, under the direction of General Secretary Xi, is systematically persecuting Uyghurs. The alleged crimes committed in concentration camps in Xinjiang, especially against women, are unspeakable. Absolutely no woman, child or human should have to live under those conditions. It’s an abomination and a genocide.

 

“Americans can no longer stay silent about what is happening in Communist China. We must stand up for human rights and say enough is enough. We need to stop buying products made with slave labor and stop buying from Communist China, period. We need to move the 2022 Olympic Games out of Beijing. We need to remove Communist China from the UN Human Rights Council. We need to stop sending any taxpayer money to Communist China or any companies backed by their government or military. At today's G7 meeting, President Biden must make it clear that the United States will not tolerate these atrocities. All freedom-loving nations must join together to hold Communist China accountable and condemn the CCP for its horrific genocide. These crimes must end now.”
