In August 2020 Apple issued a new human rights policy that includes a commitment to freedom of information and expression as human rights. This policy is directly linked to this campaign!
In February 2020, at Apple’s last shareholder meeting, over 40% of the company’s investors voted to support our resolution proposing Apple report annually on its policies on freedom of expression and access to information, as well as be more transparent in how it responds to requests from governments such as China to restrict certain apps.
The new human rights policy meets the first part of the resolution by publicly committing to respect freedom of information and expression as human rights but it does not go far enough in outlining the implementation of the company’s commitment and we will be continuing for Apple to do more to uphold the freedom rights of Tibetans, Uyghurs, Hongkongers, Chinese people and Southern Mongolians.
