Title: CPP Investments - Stop investing our money in Uyghur genocide
The Chinese government is committing genocide against the Uyghurs in China. This reality has been recognized by Canada’s Parliament and the U.S. State Department. The evidence is overwhelming and growing. Uyghur forced labour is part of this genocide.
CPP Investments invests our Canada Pension Plan (CPP) contributions in Chinese companies and multinational corporations doing business in China. The revenue earned from many of these investments is tainted by the forced labour of Uyghurs, either in the factories of these companies or their supply chains.
Because China will not allow free and independent verification of labour conditions, the only way to avoid profiting from Uyghur forced labour is to divest from all Chinese companies and to divest from all multinational companies identified as using Uyghur forced labour in China.
As part of their guiding principles, CPP Investments aims to “at all times meet or exceed the high ethical standards expected of us by the over 20 million CPP contributors and beneficiaries.” 
We do not want our financial futures to be built on Uyghur forced labour, suffering and persecution. We therefore urge CPP Investments to live up to the high ethical standards expected of them by Canadians and immediately 1) to divest from all Chinese companies, and 2) to divest from all multinational companies identified as using Uyghur forced labour in China.
