A law that oppresses people and is recognised as being wrong globally. It is unethical to do business with nations that oppress their people. Which is why we have sanctions. China is known for its systematic oppression of the Uighur people. This is not ok and Apple et al should not be profiting from China.

We are obviously not going to agree and have very different values. As one who has lived in an oppressive nation and felt the injustice of such a regime you might think differently if it was you. Thankfully at the moment our laws in the west protect us, but certainly not the working practices of corporate businesses.

As this has now moved off topic this is my last comment on the issue.
