Support a Legal Challenge to Govt Decision to Allow Huawei 5G Network Access through this link. The legal challenge by two UK Muslims (Rahima Mahmut and Dr. Enver Tothi) to the UK Govt’s  5G HUAWEI deal is based on HUAWEI’s use of Uyghur Slave Labour. Additionally their advanced digital surveillance of Uyghurs in and out of their homes and work places enables their arrest, interrogation and internment in the camps. Only £1900 more needs to be raised by 27 May 2020.
