Chinese Refugee Slams Communist Party of China: They're 'the Enemy of Humanity’
Chen Guangcheng gives speech during RNC
Chen Guangcheng, a blind refugee from China who was persecuted for standing up to the Chinese Communist Party regime’s “one-child” policy, gave a speech highlighting the inhumane actions of the CCP.
As Republicans noted President Donald Trump's increasing hostility towards China, Guancheng described how he was imprisoned, beaten, and persecuted by the CCP for speaking out.
“I escaped and was given shelter in the American embassy in Beijing,” he said.
“I am forever grateful to the American people for welcoming me and my family to the United States, where we are now free,” he added.
“The CCP is an enemy of humanity," Guangcheng declared.
"It is terrorizing its own people, and it is threatening the well-being of the world.”
“In China, expressing beliefs or ideas not approved by the CCP — religion, democracy, human rights — can lead to prison," he continued.
"The nation lives under mass surveillance and censorship,” he added.

Trump and U.S. allies across the globe have become increasingly critical of China after the coronavirus was allowed to spread beyond its borders from a lab in Wuhan.
The regime reportedly allowed flights out of the virus’s origin city of Wuhan to the rest of the world despite banning flights from the city to the rest of China.
Following reports of falsified data coming out of Wuhan, Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne called for an international investigation into China.
In May, Trump made a historic move to shift pharmaceutical manufacturing back to America and away from the "sweatshop havens" of China.
The Trump Administration has signed an America-first deal to end reliance on Chinese and Indian manufacturers for the medical supply chain in the United States.
In a masterstroke move, President Trump signed a multi-million dollar contract to bring America’s pharmaceutical manufacturing back to the U.S.
America and countries around the world are shifting away from dependency on China as a reliable manufacturer of critical products, including medicines, that are essential to the global supply chain.
