Young people protest against Chinese population policy

16 August 2007

Young people protest against Chinese population policy London, 16 August - The Youth and Student Division of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) organised a demonstration outside the Chinese Embassy in London yesterday (Wednesday 15 August) protesting against forced abortions and sterilisations carried out under China's one-child policy. The silent demonstration drew attention to the killing of unborn children and the plight of women coerced or forced into abortion and sterilisation by the brutal one-child policy. Leaflets describing the brutal methods used to enforce policy were handed to passers-by. Demonstrators drew attention to the persecution of Mao Henfang and Chen Guangcheng both of whom have been imprisoned for campaigning against the one-child policy in China. The target of the protest was not only the Chinese Government but also the British and European authorities complicit in the one-child policy through financial and moral support. Fiorella Nash, who coordinated the demonstration said: "The West is complicit in this unjust policy through supporting and funding the activities of Western population control agencies in China and most of all through silence. Anyone concerned with human rights should be uniting to fight this atrocity, which has been responsible for the deaths of millions of unborn babies, particularly baby girls, and the abuse of millions of women." A similar protest by students was due to take place in Sydney, Australia, today (Thursday 16 August).
