UK needs to respond to reports that 2,200 Christians were hacked to death in Nigeria during 2020, to reports from Genocide Watch that in two months alone over 350 Christians were killed and their data that “over 11,500 Christians have been murdered since June 2015” and to the findings of the Tom Lantos Commission on Human Rights.

The UK Government needs to say what assessment it has made of reports that 2,200 Christians were hacked to death in Nigeria during 2020, of a report from Genocide Watch that in two months alone over 350 Christians were killed and their data that “over 11,500 Christians have been murdered since June 2015”.

The UK Government needs to say what action they have taken to verify the reported figures or to seek independent verification; and what response they received when they last raised these killings with the Government of Nigeria.

For the Uyghurs, Genocide is a word which dares not speak its name. For the sake of women like Rahima Mahmut, Gulzira Auelkhan, Sayragul Sauytbay, and Ruqiye Perhat – whose heart-breaking, shocking, stories are recorded here – it’s time that the crime of genocide was given definition in the UK. On January 19th Parliament can use its voice and speak that name – insisting on justice for victims of Genocide and refusing to make tawdry trade deals with those responsible for the crime above all crimes.
