The China Support Network recommends these three "events of the week" for anyone in the area of Washington, DC.
Freedom Rally Scolding China
A freedom rally will be held by the global coalition to Quit The CCP. Also known as the Tuidang movement, it began in 2005 to follow up on the publication of 'Nine Commentaries On The Communist Party,' a shocking book with the true history of China's Communist Party. From 2005 to the present, Chinese people have been urged to learn the truth and to separate themselves from the Communist Party by resigning from the CCP and from two related organs, the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers.
The movement maintains a website and database, and the counter has now recorded over 71 million resignations from Chinese Communism.
The rally "to recognize and show solidarity with the Chinese people that seek to embrace freedom" will be at Washington, DC's Freedom Plaza on Pennsylvania Avenue, between 13th Street and 14th Streets. It will run from 2 to 4 PM on Sunday, April 11.
The movement is a monument to the courage of Chinese people who have stood up against the most brutal and repressive regime in world history. This has been happening across all these years since 2005, when CNN refused to cover the first rally for one million Tuidang resignations. Hence, the movement is also a story that CNN can't handle; a testament to how CNN resists reality and clings to bogus synthetic narratives of its artificial reality.
Because CNN won't tell you these things, you can only get the story by attending events like Sunday's, and using your own eyeballs! --We would welcome you to join us.
China's President Hu Jintao in Washington DC; Protestors in Washington DC!
U.S. President Barack Obama is hosting a Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, at which Hu Jintao will join 45 other world leaders in attendance. Here are four good reasons to protest: Tiananmen crackdown, Falun Gong crackdown, Tibetan crackdown, Uighur crackdown. Communist China also uses slave labor to manufacture sometimes-unsafe (quality challenged?) products, exports them to us, and competes unfairly against U.S. manufacturers who used to make American versions of such products. They take American jobs, enlarge the trade deficit, and use the profits against us for such purposes as building up their military, lending to the U.S. Treasury, and buying up U.S. assets.
This week, President Obama is saying, "stop the currency manipulation." Currency manipulation is economic dirty pool. It tilts the playing field (just like slave labor) and gives Chinese products an advantage over their American counterparts.
This week, we of the China Support Network are saying, "Stop the Tiananmen crackdown," "Stop the Falun Gong crackdown," "Stop the Tibetan crackdown," "Stop the Uighur crackdown," release prisoners such as Wang Bingzhang, Liu Xiaobo, and Zhou Yongjun, and abolish the systems of Laogai and Laojiao (those are systems of slave labor in Communist China).
Come out to protest, and help us deliver the message to Hu: Hu Jintao, tear down your evil empire!
Protesting will run from 9:00AM to 3:00PM. Free Tibet protestors will meetup at 8:30AM at Samuel Gompers Memorial Park [11th St NW, between L St NW & Mass Ave NW]
Summit venue: Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Address: 1207 9th Street NW (main entrance is Mt. Vernon b/w 7th & 9th Sts. NW)
Other tentative protest locations: Chinese Embassy & Mandarin Oriental Hotel where Hu will be staying
Human Rights Fair at George Mason University
On campus at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, the China Support Network will exhibit at their third annual International Human Rights Fair, organized with the campus chapter of Amnesty International.
It's an all-afternoon outdoor trade show of human rights groups. The event will be held on Thursday, April 15th from 12:00pm – 5:00pm. George Mason University is located at: 4400 University Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030 We will be holding the event at the North Plaza outside of the Johnson Center and parking is available at the Mason Pond Parking Deck.
The week begins with loud and noisy events, and by Thursday the campus event is expected to be more quiet and mellow. But, we look forward to meeting and raising awareness among the GMU students who are not as tuned in to the activities of the human rights community. Perhaps we will line up new recruits for the next noisy occasion! :)
