US Stance on Legitimacy of Kurdish Independence Referendum Requires a National Vote

The Kurdish people have held an independence vote. They have chosen time and time again to not kneel or bow in the face of death itself. Sunni Muslim men and women of the Peshmerga fought and died to keep ISIS out. When Saddam was in power, the Kurds were bombed with chemical weapons. They want democracy, they want freedom, and they obviously want independence. Whether or not the independence referendum and the results of their referendum, which were 92% in favor with ~3 million ballots cast, should be considered legitimate cannot and must not be decided by an unelected oil tycoon claiming to speak on behalf of the American people. The decision of whether or not America recognizes the Kurdish independence referendum needs to be a decision made directly by the American people. I urge you to call for and successfully negotiate a nation-wide vote in America to determine our nation's formal stance on the legitimacy of the Kurdish independence referendum. If we do not do this, we turn our backs to the very ideas that the American nation was founded upon and that our Kurdish brothers and sisters champion. As stated in our country's Declaration of Independence: "When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

Petition to ISO

Change the present "Taiwan, Province of China" to "Taiwan"

Taiwan is definitely not "a province of China".We, the Taiwanese, have elected our leader through direct democratic means, fully support the democratic rights of self-determination, and the entitlement to certain inalienable rights of all humanity.Taiwan has its own political, postal, financial, and socioeconomic systems that is run independently. We are citizens of Taiwan, not China. There is no "Taiwan, Province of China" in any of our documentation indicating our citizenship to Taiwan or any relevant information.If the ISO does not rectify this problem, it would further increase our own pains of our identity being overruled. For the past six decades China had been threatening Taiwan with military conflict. They already have maintained a substantial number of missiles aimed at Taiwan, with annual increases in both numerical strength and weapon efficiency.Due to present ISO standards, any statement made on a form in the Internet would change "Taiwan" as "Taiwan, Province of China". This is a tremendous insult both to us, the petitioners, and the Taiwanese community. We humbly plead the ISO to change this mistake and allow the Taiwanese people to proudly select their country as "Taiwan", not "Taiwan, Province of China". The link below is the key evidence of the imperative need to rectify this mistake. 本簽署目的在鄭重要求:國際標準組織(ISO) 將台灣列為「中國.台灣省」更正成為「台灣」! 呼籲全世界 認同自由民主國家"台灣"主權的人士,共同參與全球網路連署,藉此向國際社會宣示我們國家之完整主權,絕非鄰國的中華人民共合國的任何轄區的省份之一! 讓全世界端正視聽並且尊重我們國家真實存在的事實。不要再將錯就錯 委屈台灣國民~   以下是全球連署網頁,歡迎以中文填寫連署資料。貼上上面的制式抗議內文亦可。更歡迎分享您的高見 影響更多人為 "台灣 正名" 發聲!

Petition to President of the United States, US Commerce Department, US State Deparment

US State Department: Implement the "Proposal" with the Chinese Government to Resolve the US Listed Chinese Companies Stock "Scandal" - Please Sign the Petition!

Open Letter Proposal” / Solution to the Media / Public / US Government RE: Major US Listed Chinese Companies Stock “Scandal” Dear Sir / Madam: Please support this “Proposal” / Solution by signing the petition.  Thank you. Many Chinese companies listed in the US, after getting American money from the US citizens/investors (shareholders), stopped filing financial reports and stopped communicating with them (shareholders).  One of those companies is Duoyuan Global Water Inc. (DGW).  DGW started trading on NYSE on June 24, 2009.  Through the two public offerings in 2009 and 2010, about it raised more than 192 million dollars from the US citizens/investors.  The last financial report filed with the SEC was on March 22, 2011 (Form 6K, for the quarter and year ended 12/31/2010), since then it has not communicated any financial and operating information to the shareholders.  They like many other small to mid cap US listed Chinese companies went ‘dark’, ‘silent’, ‘in hiding’. DGW’s actions is an example of the fraudulent, scamming, abusive, fiduciary breaching, anti-shareholder model / formula used by many other Chinese CEOs.  Please refer to Appendix B – Sample List of Problem US Listed Chinese Companies.  This sample of fourteen (14) companies is a small sample of the many US listed Chinese companies that have gone “dark”, delisted, and / or revoked from NASDAQ or the NYSE by the SEC.  The problem list is long, please visit: This issue was pursued by the media for a brief period in early 2013, but it’s gotten worse and should be reported and picked up by the media again: This Chinese stocks “scandal” is potentially much larger and wider in scope than the “Madoff Scandal”. The sociopathic and corrupt Chinese company CEOs have essentially abandoned all the shareholders in the USA by stopping any communication.  Recovering the value of the assets in China has been a huge challenge to the shareholders of those companies in the US.  To address this challenge, DGW (Duoyuan Global Water, ticker: DGWIY) and DYP (Duoyuan Printing, ticker: DYNP) shareholders formed a shareholder group, led by David Yee.  After analyzing all possible options, the group decided to seek help from the US government and Chinese government. Currently, the Chinese government is asking the US government to seize the assets of corrupt Chinese officials in the US.  The group is asking the US government to negotiate with the Chinese government to buy-out all the US shareholders of the US listed Chinese companies.  The group is proposing: THE “PROPOSAL 1. For those Chinese companies listed in the US that have been revoked or have not filed financial reports for two or more years (see Appendix B for examples), use the Money seized from the corrupt Chinese officials in the US (who moved to the US with assets stolen from or that belong to China, attempting/hoping to hide/escape) to buy out the US shareholders (all the shareholders excluding the insiders) at not less than 70% of the book value reported in the last financial report. a. China will warn the managers of those companies in China that they have violated the US securities laws by not filing the financial reports and ask them to comply with the securities laws within three months.  If they cannot comply with the securities laws, they should consider buying out the shareholders at fair price that is usually not lower than the net asset price, in order to resolve the issues with the shareholders. b. For those companies that do not file all the necessary financial reports and do not offer buy-out at a price of not less than 70% of the book value after three months.  Chinese government will offer buy-out of the shareholders using the assets seized from the corrupt Chinese officials in the US. 2. Apply article 183 (Chapter X) of China corporate law to those companies without buy-out in the previous step.  China assigns a specific court in China to handle all the cases that involve those Chinese companies listed in the US.  If the share price have been below 25% of the book value for one or more years, the interests of the shareholders is considered to have heavy loss if the company continues to exist.  If shareholders, whose combined ownership in the US parent company can be translated into 10% or more of ownership of the business entity in China, vote to dissolve the corporation (to sell the business), the Chinese court will sell the business in China based on article 183 (Chapter X) of China corporation law. Our “Proposal” / business transaction complies with US corporate law and Chinese corporate law so it should be straightforward to implement, enforce, and complete.  For additional information to show that the “Proposal” is similar or in line with what other countries, such as Australia and Canada are doing, see Appendix A. The group along with shareholders of other Chinese companies listed in the US is now contacting various media, rights & activists groups/organizations, and government departments, agencies and officials (both elected and non-elected) to discuss the “Proposal” and get their support.  The group expects that many other US citizen shareholders and their supporters from all across the USA will join this effort/action and help the government and media understand that this “US Listed Chinese Company stock scandal” has hurt small investors and Middle America far more than the infamous “Madoff scandal”.  The group believes that the proposal offers the best practical solution to alleviate the pain caused by the “US Listed Chinese Company stock scandal” to the US citizens. Our goal is to get the US government to negotiate with the Chinese government to buy-out the shareholders using the money seized in the US.  There will be no financial cost to the US government.  Instead, it will offer many benefits to the USA and Global financial/capital community and investors.  Firstly, getting the Chinese government to buy-out the shareholders in the US will help keep the money in the USA after seizing the assets of corrupt Chinese officials.  Secondly, it will motivate Chinese government to pressure the Chinese management of those companies to comply with US securities laws in the future.  Thirdly, knowing that there are strong repercussions for fraud and abuse of USA Citizen shareholders/investors, it will restore confidence in Chinese and other overseas companies that are listed in the USA. The timing is perfect to resolve this with the “Proposal” solution we have brought forth to the US Government, given the Chinese Premier’s mandate is to crack down and punish corruption and graft, for reference: For those companies where a buy-out is not possible, the group thinks that selling all the China assets is a good solution to realize the values.  This can be achieved based on Article 183 (Chapter X) of China corporate law.  This also requires help from the Chinese government.  AgFeed Industries Inc (stock ticker was FEED) is a good example of how China assets can be sold to realize the value for the US shareholders: On behalf of the many hard-working, mostly middle class US citizens who have lost a significant portion of their retirement funds and assets investing in Chinese company stocks that were allowed to list on the US Stock Exchanges by Wall Street, NYSE, Nasdaq, investment bankers, and promoters, we hope the Media, SEC, and US Government will support and publicize our “Proposal” / Solution as well as make the public aware of this “scandal”. Again, Please support this “Proposal” / Solution by signing the petition.  Thank you. Sincerely, David Yee, and All similarly situated USA Citizen investors/shareholders of the Problem US Listed Chinese Company Stocks and their Supporters APPENDIX A – SOURCES AND REFERENCES The following two reports highlight China's effort in getting US to seize assets of corrupt Chinese officials in the US: "China seeking help during APEC from US, Canada, Australia in global hunt for corrupt officials" "China Anti-Corruption Campaign Boosted by Asia Ministers’ Pledge" Anti-Corruption is the top priority of China as it even used the APEC forum to push for this.  It shows that Australia is now cooperating with China and Canada will sign an agreement with China soon.  Negotiation between China and the US is still on going. As soon as possible, Shareholders and their Supporters need the US State Department, Commerce Department, SEC, the President of the United States, and all related US Government agencies who have the power to act and enforce our “Proposal” / Solution.
