PETITION TO

Disney’s new film: Mulan, was filmed in East Turkestan while hundreds of thousands of Uyghurs were and still are being imprisoned and tortured in concentration camps. On behalf of the Save Uighur Campaign, Faith Coalition To Stop Genocide, and Justice For All we urge all to sign this petition and help spread the word

Petition to Stop Disney Profiting from the Uyghur Genocide

Robert A. Iger
Executive Chairman, The Walt Disney Company

Dear Robert Iger,

We ask you to immediately stop the release of live-action remake of the Mulan movie, apologize to the victims of Uyghur genocide, edit out the genocide locations you have filmed at, delete gratitude to the Chinese Communist Party in your credits and contribute to Uyghur genocide education and awareness in a meaningful and impactful way.

Disney, which owns ABC News, must have been aware of the existence of Chinese concentration camps where over a million Uyghurs and other Turkic people are detained, suffering from crimes against humanity, forced labor and genocide in the Xinjiang region, the historic Eastern Turkestan which like Tibet is occupied by China.

As reported by the Washington Post:

Disney offers a special thanks to more than a dozen Chinese institutions that helped with the film. These include four Chinese Communist Party propaganda departments in the region of Xinjiang as well as the Public Security Bureau of the city of Turpan in the same region — organizations that are facilitating crimes against humanity.

The Walt Disney Company claims in its social responsibility report and human right policy statement that it is

“committed to conducting business in an ethical and responsible manner. We respect and support international principles aimed at protecting and promoting human rights, as described in the United Nations’ Universal Declaration on Human Rights and the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.”

Disney must stand by its own principles.

Additionally, we demand that Disney divests from the region as recommended by 220+ human, labor, and Uyghur rights organizations in the Coalition To End Uyghur Forced Labor.

Why you should sign the petition to Stop Disney

Disney is a household name for all of us. Over the years, it has become a brand that we’ve come to trust. It is completely unacceptable, then, that the same company is looking the other way and collaborating with the Chinese Communist Party while millions of Uyghurs and other Muslims minorities are being detained in concentration camps and made victims of genocide at the hands of the CCP

Disney used CCP terminology to negate indigenous Uyghurs

Disney filmed the movie in East Turkestan (Xinjiang), which the subtitles refer to as “Northwest China” a term that effectively negates the ancestral link of the indigenous Uyghur and other Muslim minorities to their land.

They worked with the Turpan Public Security Bureau

This same bureau is on list of sanctioned entities that prohibits US entities from selling or supplying products to due to their involvement in running the concentration camps.

Disney worked with the Chinese Communist Party's Propaganda Outfit

Another entity that the company thanks is the Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda commission in East Turkestan (Xinjiang) whose job it is to deny the ongoing Genocide of Uyghurs.

They are drawing heat over this by Bipartisan Lawmakers

CEO Bob Chapek has been urged to explain the company’s connection with “security and propaganda” authorities of the East Turkestan (Xinjiang) region during the production of “Mulan,” by a group of bipartisan lawmakers including former presidential candidate Marco Rubio.

Disney chose to ignore the Uyghur Genocide and Concentration Camps

Disney’s team was driving around East Turkestan (Xinjiang) long enough to notice the camps before the actual filming took place. Yet, they chose to ignore the ongoing genocide and concentration camps.

SENATOR JOSH HAWLEY

Senator Josh Hawley has sent a letter to Disney CEO Bob Chapek, condemning the company for what he said was “whitewashing the ongoing genocide of Uighurs and other Muslim ethnic minorities during the production of Mulan.”

EXCERPTS FROM THE LETTER

“How exactly does giving “special thanks” to the officials responsible for imprisoning, torturing, and forcibly sterilizing millions of people because of their ethnicities and beliefs align with your supposed commitment to promoting human dignity and respecting human rights?”

“On August 13, 2018, Walt Disney Studios announced that production had begun on Mulan. By that time, numerous reports had been released by the U.S. government and non-government organizations concerning the mass internment of Uighurs and others in camps in Xinjiang. But that did not stop Disney from going to Xinjiang to film Mulan. Nor did it stop Disney from collaborating with the Chinese officials directly responsible for the atrocities at those camps.”

“How does glorifying the Chinese authorities perpetrating abuses in Xinjiang provide comfort, inspiration, and opportunity to Uighur children—including those who were never born because the CCP forced their mothers to abort them? Disney’s actions here cross the line from complacency into complicity.”
