The African Diaspora Congress is petitioning President Xi Jinping over the discrimination and stigmatisation of black people in China.
The petition follows reports of racial discrimination which suggest that blacks are being denied access into supermarkets and public transport for “importing coronavirus” into that country.
The deadly coronavirus emerged in China in December last year. China had locked down Hubei province and had contained the virus.
New infections were recorded recently and some believe that the virus was now being imported by foreigners.
The ADC which started the petition 5 days ago wants 15 000 signatures and has so far attained close to 12 000. ADC wrote:
Please join the African Diaspora Congress (ADC) in sending a strong message to President Xi Jinping of China. Our message is loud and clear, that the abuse of black people by the Chinese citizens will no longer be tolerated (See our open letter to President Xi Jinping dated April 13th, 2020)
We the African Diaspora unite in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Africa to come together and send a strong message to President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China and his citizens.
Sign this petition in support of the Africans.
Enough is Enough!
