Chain 2 China: Protest in New York City

Students and activists in New York City held a Chain 2 China rally on March 10, 2007, in which hundreds rallied in front of the Chinese and Sudanese missions to the UN to urge them to end the genocide in Darfur, as well as encouraging New York lawmakers to divest from Sudan until the genocide is over.

 

Chain 2 China mission statement: "Student activists, having been moved and alarmed by China's role in the genocide in Darfur, have committed to publicizing this connection and protesting it. In order to create a physical manifestation of this link, we will be forming a human chain between the Chinese and Sudanese Missions to the UN on Saturday March 10th, 2007. This action depends on the participation of every Darfur activist -- the greater the number of links, the stronger the chain."
