According to the Voice of America, three bills related to human rights issues in the CCP were recently voted on in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Earlier, House Speaker Pelosi said in a statement, “By passing these three bills, the House sends a clear and direct message that Communist China crimes against Uyghurs constitute genocide and must stop immediately.”
One of the three bills passed was The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA). This bill is designed to ensure that goods manufactured by forced labor in Xinjiang, China, do not enter the U.S. market. In July, the bill was passed unanimously by a bipartisan group of members of the Senate.
The other bill is about condemning the genocide and crimes that the Chinese Communist Party continues to commit against the Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities.
The third bill was the House of Representatives’ view that the International Olympic Games had failed to abide by its own commitments to human rights. This bill’s position was decisive in the White House’s eventual announcement of a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics.
The U.S. Congress has previously passed the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020, the Pro-Tibetan Policy Act, and the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019. Speaker Pelosi said that by adding these bills together, the House will continue to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable for its human rights abuses and suppression.
