Government Pension Fund of Norway: Help to free the Uyghurs
On March 12, Uyghur activists are meeting with the Ethics Council of the Government Pension Fund of Norway. In this meeting, we want to bring in as many voices as possible -- to urge the Norwegian Oil Fund to divest from the Chinese tech companies that abet Beijing’s crackdown on Uyghurs.

Write a personal message to the Ethics Council and ask them to pull the money out of the Chinese tech companies helping to manage the crackdown on Uyghurs. Here’s our chance to make sure these decision-makers hear our message loud and clear!

Speaking from the heart is important, but here are a few ideas on what to say about why the Government Pension Fund of Norway needs to divest:

  • 1 million Uyghurs have been brutally detained and brainwashed by Chinese authorities! I urge the Government Pension Fund of Norway to divest from Chinese companies which are complicit in this crackdown on Uyghurs.

  • Investing in companies that abet Beijing's crackdowns on China's Uyghurs means supporting crimes against humanity. In light of this crisis, we ask the Government Pension Fund of Norway to end their engagement in this cultural genocide.

  • It’s up to Institutions like the Government Pension Fund of Norway to choose the right side in history and pave the way towards a better future for us all. You have the opportunity to use your power to publicly denounce the brutal persecution of the Uyghurs. And history will remember your response.
