As youths who ourselves have witnessed ongoing, brutal human rights violations in China. We feel that this is an immensely important documentary, as this provides news that is more recent and hope that you and more people can learn firsthand that more support is still needed about the atrocities in China.
While China becomes a significant player in the global economy, its political and social policy affects not only its own people. Letter from Masanjia shows that we are all affected connected across the ocean.
It is our hope that you will watch this trailer, read the BBC news and see this documentary to help increase awareness in the west of what people in China and their families are facing.
In addition, we hope that you will help us by inviting others – friends and colleagues.
