US retail giants pull Chinese surveillance tech from shelves.


U.S. retail giants Home Depot and Best Buy have pulled the Chinese video surveillance technology makers Lorex and Ezviz from their stores over links to human rights abuses.

In a statement to TechCrunch, Home Depot said it's "committed to upholding the highest standards of ethical sourcing and we immediately stopped selling products from Lorex when this was brought to our attention." Home Depot also stopped selling Ezviz products, a spokesperson confirmed. Best Buy said it was "discontinuing its relationship" with both Lorex and Ezviz.

Dolkun Isa, the president of the World Uyghur Congress, welcomed the "meaningful actions" by the U.S. government with bans on forced labor and sanctions for Chinese companies, but said that it's "unacceptable that there are still American companies directly helping further the repression."

Dolkun Isa is a former student-leader of the pro-democracy demonstrations at Xinjiang University in 1988. He founded the Students’ Science and Culture Union at the university in 1987 and worked on programs to eliminate illiteracy and to promote science and to lead other students in East Turkestan.

That is not the only thing made in CHINA that has to be pulled off the shelves!

The USA political administration and business rather give jobs to foreign countries that hate them, instead of giving jobs to Americans!

''Walmart and Costco, which still stock Lorex and Ezviz technology, did not respond to requests for comment. Hikvision did not respond to requests for comment by TechCrunch and IPVM.''

IN OTHER WORDS, THEY WILL GET IT FROM A BACKDOOR DEAL!

Can't we all frabricate our own products, anymore?

And ever since the U.S.A and allies have been outsourcing every possible production!

It all cooks out as the industry wants to rely on cheap products made over boards by enslaved kids…
