CGTN published this video item, entitled “The Point: Debunking anti-China allegations with Daniel Dumbrill” – below is their description.
Some western clothing brands, including H&M and Burberry, are facing backlash and boycotts in China in response to the concerns they raised over alleged “forced labor” in cotton fields in Xinjiang. The boycotts followed the imposition of tit-for-tat sanctions between some western governments and China over so-called human rights issues in Xinjiang. What’s driving these allegations?
Guest: Daniel Dumbrill, a political commentator. He argued in a two-hour-long panel discussion about Xinjiang that the charges are hypocritical and have nothing to do with human rights.CGTN YouTube Channel

Xinjiang, an autonomous territory in northwest China, is a vast region of deserts and mountains. It’s home to many ethnic minority groups, including the Turkic Uyghur people. The ancient Silk Road trade route linking China and the Middle East passed through Xinjiang, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of its oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar.
