Panel Discussion: How Chinese Censorship Creeps into the Free World?
Saturday, December 7, 2019 at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall 55 West 13th Street, Room I-202, New York, NY 10011
As China plays a more and more significant role in the international trading in this Capitalism world, is it possible for the supposed “free world” to be free from all the Chinese censorships spread through commercials, pop-cultures, and even politics? How do all kinds of censorship pose by China influence our educational system? Is it legit to ban any form of support on campus that endorses a government that some evidence shows it has been using violence against its people? How are we going to understand the previous and on-going fight for freedom within and outside of China?
In this panel, we’re going to discuss about the line between legit regulations and censorships, where are we now in terms of learning from the previous history of defending human rights, and eventually, how are we going to prevent the whole world becomes a mass prison where people could no longer voice themselves without hesitation.
