CEEP Delegation to China Report Back
A China Education and Exposure Program delegation went to China December 2013.
- The rise of China as a global economic force implementing a capitalist agenda in the past decade – and the massive, bottom up resistance of workers and peasants to the exploitation that has accompanied it -- demands that leftists in the US develop an analysis on China that is grounded in current conditions. In 2013, a delegation of Chinese American organizers went to China to learn about organizing efforts in Mainland China. The culmination of conversations with more than 10 organizations in China organizing around labor, environmental justice, women's rights, and queer issues opened up space for us to put forth the following questions: In China, what are the conditions people are organizing against? What are people fighting for? What is the nature of anti-capitalist struggle and the social justice movement in China? How have the State and Capitalists responded? And lastly, what role do we play in the US in supporting people's struggles in China?
