The Chinese government has not moved closer to democracy. It has simply moved from left wing authoritarianism to right wing authoritarianism.

China’s enslave and pave policy must be reversed. Where is our government’s indignation? Where is our great freedom fighting President’s moral outrage? What is the difference between oppression in one place versus another? Or is this the way of globalization; forced consumerism for all.

Today I signed a pledge to Boycott Made in China products. I hope you join me.
