China forces brands to make a cotton choice

The disappearance of Hennes & Mauritz, one of the world’s largest clothing retailers, from ecommerce and ride-hailing apps in China last week marks an escalation in the diplomatic battle over cotton from Xinjiang. China has shown that it will not just encourage local consumer boycotts of global brands that reject Xinjiang cotton, but will impose them.

West’s presumption of China’s guilt must be boycotted: Global Times editorial

In a cotton-producing village in Bayingolin Mongolian Autonomous Prefecture, Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, large-scale machines operate at full capacity to seize the harvest season on September 28, 2020. The total cotton plantation area in Xinjiang reached 24.19 million mu (1.6 million hectares) and around 16.90 million mu were harvested by machines in 2020, accounting for 70 percent of the plantation area.

Western companies now face the dilemma of being between woke and angry customers in the west, along with their governments versus the huge market of China. We see US companies and sports leagues being targeted to condemn the recent electoral changes in the state of Georgia. All of this means is that they will either become apolitical and not take any positions or they will continue to take positions and have to accept the consequences to their business. I suspect many will start to adopt the former position despite having to take heavy criticism. It will be interesting to see… Read more »

Thank you, Alexander It is another stone hurled at the wicked arrogance of the West, mainly the US and the UK.It is disgusting to watch leaders of this country and the US never, ever, acknowledging that there some other governments and nations which are not depraved and murderous as the elites of these two nations are. The fact that China is ruled by a dictatorial ideology – socially – doesn’t make it any worse than the depraved ideologies of this part of the world, always scheming to asphyxiate the remains of truth, morality and justice that are still left to… Read more »

the Western Capitalist International Corporation dilemma – to act as a branch of US Regime Propaganda and Control, or simply act as a business concerned with business economics.

Thank you, Alexander. I must say I smiled through most of your video. I have seen first hand what the US has done to Cuba, Nicaragua and Iran with its cruel and intentionally devastating embargoes and sanctions, and I imagine that a lot of people in a lot of countries will be cheering China on. Western countries have been very quick to slam China’s alleged human rights abuses in Xinjiang but say little about Israel’s many decades of known human rights abuses in Palestine. They have made boycotts of Israeli products illegal, and have opposed the mandatory labelling of Jewish… Read more »

US elites think they can defeat, neutralize, or exhaust China? They are in dreamland – they are divorced from reality. The US is in the process of defeating itself.

The enormous hypocrisy, the vast disparity between, on the one hand, claims of support for human rights with, on the other, the reality of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran, and Yemen, this chasm can not be ignored. As Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said, “The U.S. has no right whatsoever to criticize China on human rights issue. Let the curtain fall on this U.S.-staged play. It’s time for U.S. politicians to wake up from their Truman Show.”

I would put it as “flexing it’s muscles”, more like standing their ground.

Simply put – “get woke, go broke”. Any American or British company deserves what it gets if doesn’t heed the mantra.

Usual double standards from the Western media. Specifically the Financial Times. The British authorities seem to have forgotten about the opium wars when they forced China to import this drug from India to China. The British Empire was the larges drug pusher the world has ever seen. This smuggling of opium into China was a source of huge profits and these profits played a crucial role of financing British rule in India and were underpinning of British trade and commerce throughout the East during the golden years of the British empire
