Close the last Confucius Institutes in BC - Stop Communist Party's propaganda in Canada

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!


According to Wikipedia, high ranking officials of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and even Confucius Institutes (CI) admit – they are part of the Chinese government’s overseas propaganda machine.  

In Canada, McMaster University, Université de Sherbrooke, Toronto District School Board, the New Brunswick Provincial Government have all cut ties with CI. Locally, BCIT has also removed its Confucius Institute. 

Sweden closed its last remaining Confucius Institute in April 2020. Coquitlam is now the only city that still has a Confucius Institute operating in BC. 

Around the world, there is common consensus on banning Confucius Institutes, especially after the following was revealed (for details please see references below):

  • CI is a propaganda tool for the Chinese Communist Government 
  • CI promotes communist propaganda in textbooks and cultural events 
  • Evidence that CI discriminates against teachers in their hiring practices 
  • CI plays the role of a spy agency for the Chinese Communist Party

Confucius Institutes advocate blind trust in the CCP. Shockingly, they disseminate these ideologies to children, teens, and young adults around the world, fulfilling the goals of CI’s founders and executives, as they state in the following:

“Confucius Institutes are an important part of China’s overseas propaganda set-up”

                      — Li Changchun, former head of Central Propaganda Department of CCP

“Confucius Institutes, as many people are asking, are an important part of (China’s) soft power. Because we want to expand our (Chinese communist party’s) influences, we do not deny (this statement). We agree.”

                      — Xu, Lin, Director-General of Hanban and Chief Executive of Confucius Institute Headquarters, 2010

It's well known that CCP treats any critical thinking as a challenge to the legitimacy of its power and implements whatever means necessary to suppress them.

The CCP spreads hatred by inoculating Chinese people with its propaganda. They brainwash us to believe that anyone who challenges the CCP is criticizing China and the Chinese peoples. Such propaganda has resulted in significant tensions between Chinese who are brainwashed by the CCP, and the rest of the world, including Chinese people who do not stand with the CCP. In the current pandemic, the Chinese Communist Party continues to spread lies overseas about the true situation of the virus which has caused the COVID-19 virus spread into 188 countries and the death of 303,029 as of today, in addition to the tremendous losses for the world’s economy

The CCP is using Canadian’s education system as a means of spreading its propaganda which runs counter to the universal values that human beings in the world should follow.  It has been brainwashing us to believe that CIs are for our own benefits, but in fact, we are the real victims. All the while they continue to cover-up the real agenda of Confucius Institutes. It is not only a violation of our rights for transparency but a real security threat to the safety of our multicultural communities. 

We hereby demand that the Confucius Institute in Coquitlam permanently be closed, following the example of many places around the world. 

Please stand together with the world to stop the Chinese Communist Party from pushing their propaganda and brainwashing young Canadians – on our own soil.  We must protect our democracy and freedom of thought, belief, and conscience for the next generation, and for the future of Canada. 

Thank you and Warmest Regards,

The following is the same petition in Chinese.

關閉卑詩省內最後一家孔子學院的呼籲

—— 制止中共對加拿大人的洗腦宣傳


由NO CCP及部分居住在高貴林與大溫哥華地區的人士發起,致卑詩省教育廳(高級教育、技能與培訓廳)廳長的請願書


根據維基百科,以及中共高層官員和孔子學院(Confucius Institutes,CI)本身的聲明所公開承認,孔子學院是中共政府在海外宣傳機器的一部分。

在加拿大,麥克馬斯特大學、舍布魯克大學、多倫多地區教育局,新不倫瑞克省府均已斷絕與孔子學院的一切聯繫;溫哥華當地的BCIT也已將孔子學院清除了校園。

今年4月,瑞典關閉了其境內最後一家孔子學院。目前,高貴林是卑詩省唯一設有孔子學院的城市。

禁止孔子學院在全球已達成共識,尤其是在以下情況已為眾所周知之後(有關詳細信息,請參見後面的參考資料):

o 孔子學院是中共政府的宣傳工具

o 孔子學院在教科書及文化活動中宣揚中共

o 有證據顯示:孔子學院在聘用教師的過程中有歧視行為

o 孔子學院充當中共的間諜機構

孔子學院鼓吹對中共的盲目信任。 令人震驚的是,他們將這些意識形態強加傳播給世界各地的兒童、青少年和本是熱衷中國文化的人,以實現孔子學院創始人兼以及管轄孔子學院的中共高級官員的目標,如下所述:

“孔子學院是中國海外宣傳工作的重要組成部分 ”—原中共中央宣傳部部長李長春

 “孔子學院是(中國)軟實力的重要組成部分,正如很多人所質疑的。 因為我們想擴大我們(中國共產黨)的影響力,所以我們不否認(這種說辭)。我們認同。”

—許琳,國家漢辦主任兼孔子學院總部總幹事, 2010年

中共把任何批判性思維均視為對其權力合法性的挑戰,並採取一切必要的手段進行壓制。中共的這個模式已經在世界上臭名昭著眾所周知。

中共通過宣傳向中國人民灌輸仇恨。它給中國人洗腦,讓人們認為任何挑戰中共的人都是在批評中國和中國人民。這種宣傳導致了被中共洗腦的中國人與世界其他地區,包括那些不與中共為伍的中國人之間的緊張關係。在當前的疫情大流行中,中共繼續在海外散布謊言,以掩蓋有關該病毒的真實信息,導致COVID-19病毒傳播到188個國家,迄今為止的30萬人以上死亡,以及世界經濟的巨大損失。


中共在利用加拿大的教育系統,作為其宣傳的工具,這與世界人民應遵循的普世價值背道而馳。中共給人洗腦,灌輸公眾讓我們相信孔子學院是為了我們自己的利益,但實際上,我們是真正的受害者。他們一直在掩蓋孔子學院的真正意圖。這不僅侵犯了我們的知情權,也是對我們多元文化社區的安全構成了真正的威脅。


鑑此,我們要求效仿世界許多地方的做法,永久關閉在高貴林的孔子學院。

請與世界站在一起,共同制止中共在加拿大——我們自己的土地上對加拿大人的洗腦灌輸。我們必須捍衛我們自己的思想信仰自由與民主,為我們的後代和加拿大的未來負責。

奉上最誠摯的謝意!
