PBS has taken down "Voices from the Frontline: China’s War on Poverty", a documentary directed by directed by award winning Peter Getzels and co-produced by PBS-SoCal with a foundation led by Robert Lawrence Kuhn. This documentary reveals how China took 100 million citizens out of poverty. PBS is impoverishing its viewers by censoring this documentary and contributing to anti-China rhetoric. Tell PBS to stop censoring their audience and release the film.
On Thursday December 28th, Texas Senator Cornyn delivered remarks to the senate floor hearing advocating more money for war through the NDAA. He used aggression and hate towards China as the excuse to fund war. Instead of funding the needs of the people in the US and finding ways to cooperate with China, Senator Cornyn is looking to pour more money into the war machine. War is not the answer to human rights needs, the opposite is true.
This tweet is racist and negatively impacts the work for peace. The anti-China hatred, sinophobia, has led to an 800% increase in Asian hate crimes in the US this year. We must condemn this reprehensible behavior from a United States Senator.
As we continue in dismantling the US White House led anti-China rhetoric, we are calling on Vice Presidential nominee, Kamala Harris, to help end the aggression towards China. Please add your name to this letter. We will be delivering it to Kamala after the election.
In a short few months, China has been written about in mainstream media outlets as if they are the mortal enemy of the United States. The Trump administration has been provoking China with extreme measures and gestures which are not very neighborly. U.S. aggression towards China is driving us to war instead of peace and cooperation. These actions are coming at a time when COVID and climate chaos have made it abundantly clear that we are ALL connected and ALL in this together. Instead of provocations, we need all leadership around the world to come together to solve the problems of the planet to save life for humanity on earth.
Join us in spreading the word that China is not our enemy. Instead of driving hatred with China we need to turn our energies into cultivating peace and cooperation so we can all work together to confront the problems arising from ongoing Climate catastrophes, global inequality and growing fascism — which is much more frightening than China will ever be. For safe measure, we need a “no first use” commitment from the U.S. Government, or they are the real enemy of the planet and all people on it.
