China’s Long Reach: Indiana University students enraged after Free Hong Kong protestor is invited to speak
(From Campus Reform)
During the event, Wong, who faces up to five years in prison due to his involvement with the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, spoke about the importance of free speech, his struggles for freedom, and the oppressive Chinese regime that has committed countless atrocities and human rights abuses.
However, many IU Students, largely those studying abroad from China, lambasted the event, stating that it “violated Chinese Students [sic]” and “advocate[d] terrorism.” In an email to the Indiana University Office of International Services, the IU chapter of the Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA), an organization with strong ties to Beijing and the Chinese Communist Party, denigrated and attacked both the event and the student government.
