Ignoring the abduction and abuse of Chinese women, Peng Liyuan must resign as “special envoy” to atone
At the end of February this year, a photo of “Eight Girls” with an iron chain tied around her neck was exposed, which aroused widespread concern among the Chinese people, with more than 4 billion clicks and hundreds of millions of comments. The Jiangsu provincial government has released investigation reports five times, all of which used one lie to cover up another lie, and failed to quell the voices of doubt and condemnation from the Chinese people and even overseas Chinese. The Chinese government adopted old-fashioned methods to suppress the media and delete the posts of scholars and netizens. At the same time, the victim “Cha in Girl” was kept in a mental hospital, and local officials were expelled from the Party in lieu of criminal penalties and civil compensation. On March 1, netizens exposed another “Iron Dragon Girl” tragedy in Jiaxian County, Shaanxi Province. A young woman was locked in an iron cage for a long time, but she could not be rescued by the local government police. We are deeply concerned that the “Chain Girls” will be shut up forever in the hospital, and that many more “Cage Girls” in China will be “disappeared”.
Today is International Women’s Day on March 8, and March is also the Women’s History Month in the United States. Originally, it was a day when all women in the world happily celebrated their festivals, but during the nearly 40 years of China’s implementation of the national policy of family planning, at least 10 million women and children have Like Xuzhou’s “Chain Girls”, they were trafficked, abused, raped, gang-raped, made into sex slaves and reproductive machines. As China’s first lady, Peng Liyuan was awarded the title of “Special Envoy for the Promotion of Girls’ and Women’s Education” by UNESCO in 2014, but she turned a blind eye to the large number of Chinese women and children in suffering. “Dragon Girl” and other tragedies did nothing; turning a blind eye to the 80 million left-behind children in rural China who lacked care and access to normal education, Peng Liyuan did not deserve this title, she tarnished the name of the special envoy. Therefore, on March 8, International Women’s Day, we make two of requests to UNESCO, UN Women and UNICEF:
- Require UN Women and UNICEF to intervene, urge the Chinese government to effectively combat the issue of human trafficking, thoroughly investigate the truth of the ongoing cases of “Chain Girl” and “Cage Girl”, and hold all those involved in the criminal interest held accountable. Criminal liability and civil damages.
- In view of the growing problem of a large number of Chinese and Southeast Asian girls being abducted and trafficked to rural China, Peng Liyuan has done nothing for many years, she has not fulfilled her own responsibilities, we strongly urge UNESCO to cancel Peng Liyuan’s “special envoy for the promotion of women’s and children’s education” Stop dressing up the vanity of the First Lady with the suffering of the girls, and free up the seat for another truly responsible and caring sage.
We will never forget the painful eyes of the “Chain Girls” and “Iron Cage Girls”. We will continue to pay attention to them, speak out for justice for them, ask for the truth of the case, criminal accountability and civil compensation, and we will continue to work with the suffering The tormented sisters stand together!
