STATEMENT ON THE ONGOING CIVIL UNREST ACROSS CHINA

WASHINGTON, D.C. Today, the America First Policy Institute released the following statement in response to the ongoing civil unrest across China.

Mass protests in China are not just directed at oppressive government restrictions in the name of Covid, but also feature Chinese calling for democracy, including the end to the tenures of leader Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party.”

“Unfortunately, the Biden Administration has been caught off guard without a policy to advance U.S. interests.”

“Congress and the White House should give clear and unequivocal moral support to the protesters.”

The White House should announce strategic decoupling from China in which we deepen the previous administration’s efforts to end our dependence on China.” Steve Yates, Senior Fellow and Chair of the China Policy Initiative at the America First Policy Institute
