Tuesday, April 4 Capitol Calling Party: Banned?!


On Tuesday, April 4, join CODEPINK Congress as we speak with US-banned RT television host Lee Camp and CODEPINK's Wei Yu about Congressional calls to ban TikTok. Why the need to ban? Is silencing dissenting voices necessary to manufacture consent for wars with Russia and China? Good questions!

Let's explore the answers together.


Lee Camp is a writer, comedian, podcaster, news journalist and news commentator. As a television host, he presented the show Redacted Tonight for several years on the Russian state-funded network RT America until it was removed from the US airwaves after Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. Lee Camp recently returned from The People's Republic of China and will share highlights from his trip and his thoughts about the role of the media in manufacturing consent for endless war.

Wei Yu is CODEPINK's China is Not Our Enemy campaign coordinator. Wei was born in Tianjin, China and has lived in the US since her high school years. While in university pursuing her degree in Sociology and International Studies, Wei conducted an independent research project on neocolonial bias in Global North academia. Wei has worked with several nonprofit organizations serving women, racial minorities, and other progressive causes. Wei is passionate about anti-imperialist and peace-building work.

Can we count you in?
