Protest against China slave camps, 'genocide' of Uyghurs outside UN office [Video]

Protest against China slave camps, 'genocide' of Uyghurs outside UN office

A protest was organised against China outside the United Nations office in Geneva, Switzerland. The 3-day long demonstration, consisting of a photo exhibition, was organised by a group called the World Uyghur Congress. It was titled 'Made In China = Uyghur Forced Labour'. The protestors accused the Chinese government of forcing the Uyghurs, a Muslim minority group in the country's northwest Xinjiang province, into forced labour and even attempting a genocide. Beijing has allegedly been trying to stamp out the community's religious and cultural identity in order to assimilate it more fully into the majority Han Chinese community. Dolkun Isa, president of the World Uyghur Congress, sought international pressure on China to stop the Uyghurs' persecution and boycott by international companies to prevent forced labour.

Lindt Opens World's Largest Chocolate Museum (With The World's Largest Chocolate Fountain)

This is the world's largest chocolate museum. Opened in Zurich on 13th September by Swiss chocolatier Lindt, the Willy Wonka-esque factory also features the world’s highest free-standing chocolate fountain. Measuring at just over nine metres high, the chocolate fountain will see 1,000 litres of melted chocolate flow from a ginormous hovering whisk and will descend to cover a giant Lindor ball. It’s also the centerpiece greeting guests at the entrance, setting the tone for the chocolatey experience ahead. The museum offers fans of the brand and chocolate lovers a unique insight into how its iconic sweet treats are made. And unlike at Willy Wonka’s factory, guests are encouraged to take chocolate home.
