The proposed methanol plant in Kalama is to be financed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, a part of the Chinese government. This is the government that has imprisoned more than one million Uyghurs in “re-education camps.”

It was reported today (July 26) that they have invested billions of dollars to build camps to hold the children of imprisoned Uyghurs to “re-educate” them. Additionally, the BBC has reported that Uyghurs and members of Falcon Gong have had organs forcibly removed and sold for transplant.

These are human rights violation on a monstrous scale.

Do we really want to be a party to these actions? I urge you to question the for Port of Kalama commissioner candidates for their positions on this issue.
