Citizen Power Initiatives for China is a grassroots movement dedicated to advancing a peaceful transition to democracy in China. The movement is embedded with the belief that such a transition can be achieved through structural reform of the current system of government that by its very nature denies universally recognized political and social rights to its citizens. The movement further recognizes that such reform can only be driven by the citizens of China through the application of Gong Min Li Liang (公民力量 “Citizen power”) and through cooperative and unified action of all the diverse peoples that are under the rule of the Chinese government.
One Freedom is how the Asia Freedom Institute (AFI) designated the community of organizations, alliances and coalitions working to promote freedom and democracy in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and PRC-occupied territories. Many of these organizations work globally, lobby foreign governments, conduct primary research, bring uncensored news and voices from people living in China and Chinese-occupied territories to the world, and counter PRC’s malign influence in Asia and across the globe. AFI will spotlight and amplify the work of these organizations.
