Call on UMass’ Board of Trustees to close China’s Confucius Institute at UMass Boston.
Target: Robert J. Manning, UMass Board of Trustees Chair
UMass Boston’s Confucius Institute threatens academic freedom and free speech. It is controlled by the Chinese Government, and a central part of its soft power plan to improve the global of view of China’s authoritarian system. Confucius Institutes aim to censor and silence discussions on important political and human rights issues like Tibet, East Turkestan, Taiwan, Falun Gong and Tiananmen Square. The UMass Board of Trustees should end this partnership with the Chinese government at once.
UPDATE: UMass Boston severs ties with Confucius Institute
Thank you for signing the petition and taking action to shut down Confucius Institutes in our schools! This wouldn’t have been possible without your support.
We will be adding more petitions here in the coming time.
