Protest Against China


Friends of Canada-India were joined by a number of other groups at a protest at the Chinese Consulate In Vancouver on Saturday, calling for the release of detained Canadians in China. The peaceful protest began on July 4th at 10:30 am (PST) at the Consulate-General of the People’s Republic of China located at 3380 Granville Street, Vancouver, B.C. Former Canadian diplomat Michael Korvig and his Canadian friend and colleague Michael Spavor at the International Crisis Group, have been detained in china since December 10, 2018, as retaliation for Canada’s arrest of Meng Wanzhou, the Executive at Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. They have marked 555th day of imprisonment in China. “Both the Canadians are detained in inhuman and deplorable conditions where light stays 24 hours a day, cut off from rest of the world. Canadian diplomats have been prevented from meeting the two individuals. They should not have been arrested in the first place since there is no legitimate case against them,” said Maninder Gill, the President of the Friends of Canada-India, who led the vocal group shouting anti-China slogans.
