Tell your local PBS member station: Don’t Censor the Truth About China!

The national PBS has taken down Voices from the Frontline: China’s War on Poverty, a documentary directed by award-winning Peter Getzels, co-produced by PBS-SoCal with a foundation led by Robert Lawrence Kuhn. PBS is depriving its viewers of opportunities for learning about collective harmony and equality by censoring this documentary and its insight into China's life-saving policies, which took 800 million citizens out of extreme poverty. Tell PBS, don't be afraid of the truth!  Tell your local PBS member station that you want to see the documentary on their station! 

Last August, CODEPINK delivered 3,600 signatures to the PBS headquarters in Arlington, Virginia for it to re-instate the documentary.  However, PBS called the police, and still haven't put the documentary back up.

You can find a template letter below to deliver or send to your local PBS member station.  For more information on your local PBS station and actions in your area, please fill out our Google Form with your contact information and we will get back to you with details as soon as possible.  We're here to support you in contacting your local station.  Click here to fill out the form and get the process started!

    I called KCPT and they said film was taken down, expired in 2020–only available for 20 days in May. About the Gaza film, a BBC film, there was something unethical about it -producer’s credentials wrong ???

    Please stop censoring the truth. Do the right thing and show Robert Kuhn’s excellent documentary Voices from the Frontline regarding mass poverty alleviation in China! I have always listened to PBS because I had thought it would be a better venue for the unvarnished truth that is almost absent from the main stream media. However this brings that assumption into question. Do the right thing and stop the censorship now!
