Class Action Lawsuit Against Wechat

We believe that Tencent has become the technology shackle for the CCP to restrict the freedom of the people. What Tencent has been doing domestically and overseas constitutes a serious violation to human rights and violates Chinese, American laws as well as the international law. We must start a battle for the freedom of speech, taking a stand against WeChat. By doing so, we can open space for the freedom of speech in China. Citizen Power Initiatives for China officially is starting a class action lawsuit against WeChat (Tencent) in the United States.

Research: China And The Pandemic

This is a comprehensive report on how the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has already killed over half-a-million people, including 134,000 Americans, could have been avoided had the Chinese Communist Party acted in an honest and responsible manner. This book, currently available in Chinese, analyzes how the Chinese Communist Party responded to the virus, especially in the critical month between December 26, 2019 and January 25, 2020.

Based on meticulous analysis of data, much of it directly from sources in China, the report establishes a day-by-day, objective record documenting how Chinese authorities, from the top leadership to local governments, from biomedical institutions to public health administrations, from official media to foreign affairs functionaries, responded to the epidemic.

Forced Labor in Uyghur Region

Our team led by Dr. Han Lianchao published a report, Cotton: The Fabric Full of Lies, on forced and prison labor in Xinjiang in August 2019. One of the key conclusions is that there is presence of forced labor at many steps of the cotton supply chain and some of these products have entered into international commerce, including the U.S. and European markets. Recently the U.S. State Department, Dept. of Treasury, Dept. of Commerce, and Dept. of Homeland Seucirty issued a joint advisory which cited the report on its findings. 

Wuhan Memo – Timeline

CPIFC Team has put together a comprehensive timeline that documented the most crucial days of the COVID-19 outbreak in China. Such report contains the daily record for epidemic development and global countermeasure strategies. We sincerely hope it provides a panoramic index and guide for analyzing the development of the epidemic.

Citizen Press Publication

Citizen Press is a publishing subsidiary of Citizen Power Initiatives for China. Notable books published by Citizen Press include The History of 1989 Democracy Movement by Chen Xiaoya, Secrets of the CCP’s United Front Work Department by Chen Ganyuan, Aierzhen Scholar by Cao Xuyun etc.

The Tank Man Statue

CPIFC has officially entrusted Thomas Marsh, an sculptor who made the world’s first memorial statue of the victims of Communism, to mold a statue of the Tiananmen Tank Man. The unveiling ceremony was held infront of the U.S. Capitol, on the 30th Anniversary of 1989 Tiananmen Square Student Movement. There, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Dr. Yang Jianli unveiled the statue to public for the first time.

Citizen Power Awards

The Citizen Power Award is presented each year to one or more nominees who have done extraordinary contributions, taken leadership roles while being exposed to great danger, have had a profound social impact, on the greater cause of improving human rights conditions and civil movements in China.

Interethnic Interfaith Leadership Conferences

The InterEthnic/Interfaith Leadership Conferences, founded by CPIFC with guidance of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, seeks to advance mutual understanding, respect, and cooperation among the diverse ethnic, religious, cultural, and regional groups directly involved with P.R.China. It also aims to explore universal values and the common ground supporting a united front to advance democracy and human rights for all.

Tiananmen – UNESCO Memory of World

The project collects the documentary heritage of the 1989 Tiananmen Massacre, and nominate this heritage to be inscribed on UNESCO’s Memory of the World (MoW.) Our aim is not only to preserve that heritage, but also to fight against Beijing’s efforts to impose collective amnesia about Tiananmen.

Chinese Entrepreneurs Rights Association

Chinese Entrepreneurs Rights Association (CERA) is to defend the rights of the Chinese entrepreneurs and promote China’s liberal constitutionalism. CERA opens its doors to all Chinese entrepreneurs and business owners. It also welcomes the participation of government officials, scholars, activists, and media practitioners who are committed to the protection of property rights and the promotion of the rule of law.

Liu Xiaobo Research

The Liu Xiaobo Research website (www.liuxiaobo.net) was launched on the first anniversary of Liu’s passing. Its articles will be solicited from all sectors. In addition to soliciting articles, the Citizen Power Institute will commence work through the website and other channels, contacting overseas universities, private thinktanks and other research institutions, and striving to collaborate on research related to Liu Xiaobo.

Please join the survivors of the Tiananmen Massacre, democratic activists, and leaders from around the world in calling on the Chinese president to tell the world what happened to the “TANK MAN.”
