US bans potentially billions of dollars of imports of cotton clothing and other products from Xinjiang region of China, citing widespread use of forced labor. By @AnaSwanson https://t.co/0n9IY78wyV

US bans cotton and tomatoes from China’s Xinjiang region over forced labor concerns, an action that could compel multinational companies to reorganize their supply chains https://t.co/xlJjDGf5bD

Very telling video of rioters outside the Capitol shouting at police: "We were invited here. We were invited by the president of the United States" https://t.co/Ctt5M1ijoA

Big action from Customs today -- they are issuing a ban on all cotton and tomatoes from Xinjiang, and products made with those materials, whether shipped from China or third countries. Story to come, but we previewed the move in Sept - https://t.co/Tqn1oqH1tE

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan bans open carry of guns inside state Capitol following mob violence in US Capitol, attempt to storm statehouse.

UPDATE: Dow (@DowNewsroom), the massive chemical company, tells me it will not donate to any member of Congress that objected to the certification of the presidential vote

This is not a pause. The company won't donate to these Republicans ever again.

A new report ties some of the world's largest solar companies to the use of forced labor in Xinjiang with @ChuBailiang https://t.co/327TjOoeKI

This seems really bad! "A new report shows some of the world’s biggest solar companies work with the Chinese government to absorb workers from Xinjiang, programs that are often seen as a red flag for forced labor." https://t.co/IVYGXyxSK9 by @AnaSwanson and @ChuBailiang

Quoted @NikkiHaley

Silencing people, not to mention the President of the US, is what happens in China not our country. #Unbelievable

Of course, we all vividly remember that day when Xi Jinping was permanently suspended by Weibo — https://t.co/KhEPYX7b3t

A new report ties some of the world's largest solar companies to the use of forced labor in Xinjiang with @ChuBailiang https://t.co/327TjOoeKI

Glad to see this important topic getting more attention. https://t.co/s1M816OwKp

One @AdvisoryHorizon researcher said that Americans who buy solar panels made with materials from these Chinese companies "are complicit in perpetuating this Chinese industrial policy that suppresses and disenfranchises human beings." https://t.co/2khWq4eGLO

Biden says he seriously considered nominating @SenSanders for Labor Sec: “I’m confident he could have done a fantastic job.” But post-GA, he and Bernie agreed, “we can’t put control of the Senate at risk of the outcome of a special election in Vermont.”

@ChuBailiang “Investors are getting nervous,” says Xiaojing Sun at Wood Mackenzie

@ChuBailiang Together, the companies named in the report supply more than a third of the world’s polysilicon. Many textile and apparel companies that source materials from Xinjiang have already severed ties, and the #Solar sector could face similar pressure

@ChuBailiang The report suggests that much of the global solar supply chain, which depends heavily on China’s Xinjiang region, may be tainted by ties to forced labor -- charges that could hurt the progressive image of the solar industry and risk further product bans in Washington

@ChuBailiang Experts and human rights groups describe these types of programs as “a red flag for forced labor.” The Chinese government and the companies vigorously dispute the claims, saying that there is no evidence that labor is forced.
