Tell PBS to Meet with CODEPINK & Stop Censoring the Truth About China!

Given the lack of accountability and unwarranted police response from PBS when we delivered signatures to their offices, we are calling on members of the public to demand that PBS meet with CODEPINK to address their anti-China bias and censorship of
Voices from the Frontlines: China’s War on Poverty. See our letter to PBS asking them to reinstate the film here. #PBSTelltheTruth! #ChinaIsNotOurEnemy!

Hi there, my name is ______, and I am calling today to encourage PBS to meet with activists from CODEPINK about addressing censorship and anti-China bias at PBS. In addition to the meeting, I would encourage PBS to reinstate the documentary Voices from the Frontline: China’s War on Poverty by returning the documentary to, Passport, and the PBS Video App and encouraging partner stations to promote and air the film. As a PBS viewer, I want to hear the truth about China, including positive stories about issues I can learn from like poverty alleviation! Thank you.

    “The ancient Chinese civilization had a great impact in the modern world. They invented many things that are still in use today. There are very important contributions like paper, tea, process of printing, the water clock, the sundial, the chain pump and medicines based on herb and minerals. The greatest Chinese invention is the development of iron and steel. The development of iron and steel led to other advances. In the 4th century the Chinese had developed blast furnaces to obtain cast iron from iron ore. The Chinese had access to large amounts of clay; clay was the most important ingredient in making blast furnaces” the modern world is in debt to China Chinese innovations that are still in use today"

    PBS should stop being a mouthpiece for the MIC/Imperial Establishment and become a voice of objective journalism.

    China foreign policy towards the world in general and in particular what concerns Middle East is much better than US invasions and hypocrisy.
    US Stop: Approving and defending Israel Zionism, Save Palestinian people, Stop sanctions on Iran, Get out from Afghanistan, Iraque, Syria, Pakistan, etc…

    I am a Chinese Canadian. I know how bias about China in US and Canadian media. Common Ameciran and Canadian are brain-washed by media to anti-Socialist and anti-China.
