Hey, VW! Stop Using Slave Labor!

The Uyghurs deserve better!

It’s time to call out Volkswagen for its use of slave labor in Xinjiang, China. There is no reason any company should use forced labor in 2023. TVW is holding its annual shareholders’ meeting on May 10 in Berlin, Germany and we are planning a week of action to call them out for using slave labor.

Sign our petition calling on Volkswagen to end its complicity in Uyghur forced labor in China.

In a shocking new report, Driving Force; Automotive Supply Chains and Forced Labor in the Uyghur Region, Sheffield Hallam University exposed the global auto industry’s complicity in the exploitation of millions of Uyghurs in China. Car tires, windows, the frame, axles, interiors, electronics, and even the hood decal are all made by Uyghur forced labor.

VW was the first car company to open a plant in the Uyghur region of China and “by far the most significant auto manufacturer in the region.” It is the largest car manufacturer on the planet. If it stops using Uyghur forced labor, other companies will take note and follow suit.
