The African community in Guangzhou, estimated at 300,000, is the largest in China. According to Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Luo Zhaohui, 90% of China's imported COVID-19 cases held Chinese passports (CNN). Despite this, due to prejudice and a genuine fear of a second outbreak, Africans in Guangzhou are experiencing discrimination and harrassment. They are being made homeless because their landlords, with the help of police, are evicting them from their apartments (paid in advance), while hotels are refusing to accept their booking request.

We want to support Africans in Guangzhou China from being scapegoated for Coronavirus and claim immediate assitance from the relevant authorities.

Please sign this petition to raise awareness.
